Theories about this dude?

Perhaps Brandy meant Richard rather than Red.  Richard and Miriam clearly have more than a small town familiarity.  Richard's call to Chad certainly suggested the three of them were somewhat familar: "That little B Miriam...." 

Shelly's comment about the tip suggested that Miriam had more money that you'd expect for a nursery school teacher.  However, her modest home suggests that Miriam was overly generous with her tips given her likely salary. 

Who knows if she was or wasn't involved in the sparkle-biz. Maybe she was childhood friends with Richard and was trying to set him on the straight and narrow.  Maybe she was a heinous drug dealer. 

Ah yes, you are correct, I did mean Richard. 

Strange, this is not the first, second or third time I have superimposed those 2 names.  I wonder why that is.

It was obvious you meant Richard. But on another note--who was Red referring to in the garage when he mentioned "Mary ann" to Richard? I always wondered if Red didn't know the townspeople very well and he might have been referring to Miriam. Maybe not.  But if he was,  then she may not be so innocent.

Oh good catch. I hadn't even thought of that. It's entirely possible that Red doesn't know the townspeople terribly well, especially in light of Chad likely picking out the wrong letter in that scene some parts ago.

Miriam and Richard could know each other because he's always been a little shit and she's a school teacher. Imagine how he must have behaved in class!

Because the local hospitals have a bad reputation?  People there don't get better, they get dead.

Or get sexually assaulted while in a coma.

That drunk is freaking scary.

And I worry for Naido with him there. Hopefully Andy doesn't come back and find her dead.

 

I am reminded of the first time we see the Woodsman, in the cell next to Principal Hastings...

What's her name, the school teacher Richard tried to kill, she got better in a TP hospital. I'm just sayin...

We don't know that.  Last we heard, she needed surgery.  Who knows how that went.

Oh. Oh. I guess she could give testimony and then still pass on.

In any case, she has been quite a hero this season.

It has been inferred that she may not be entirely on the level. Remember that giant tip she left Shelley?

Plus her and Red clearly know each other and more than just small town familiarity.

Something can be implied. Someone can then infer it. So, I don't think what you're saying about her was implied. You might have inferred it, but I'm curious as to how/why? Just because of a tip she left?

And can you please remind me of the scene between her and Red? I either missed that or don't remember it.

 

Grammar man!

Clearly, Brandy DID infer it, and tells us that they infer it, in part, from the big tip. I am not sure I susbcribe to the theory, but she DOES seem to know Richard when he comes to her trailer, as something more than "thatguy who ran down the kid". 

What might one infer from that?

(-;

Thanks MJ.  🙂

I never said there was a scene between Richard and Miriam.  But there was, as MJ already more than implied.

BTW, when did we start giving out "lessons" on this forum.  What happened to the last dude who tried to pedant about? Something about "theory?" Was that you Matthew?

Infer - deduce or conclude (information) from evidence and reasoning rather than from explicit statements.

Hey, Brandy.

Nope, wasn't me about the "theory." Not sure what that's about.

I didn't mean to come after you. Sometimes I get frustrated on here because, while it's fun to discuss things, sometimes people start putting forward their theories as fact, and then it becomes annoying. None of us really know anything for certain about the show, aside from the stuff that's been explicitly stated (which really hasn't been much).

So, it can be frustrating.

If you look close you can see he (the drunk) has a very unusual bandage configuration.

A piece of gauze is attached to his face by a little bandage and a piece of string tied around his head,  which I took for a nose breathing apperatus at first.

This doesn't appear to be proper medical treatment.

It just add to the wtf factor, I guess...

You're the second person (you + OP) to notice the wtf-class bandaging.  I'm guessing Lynch had a direct hand in designing that prop.  It's the same as in each of his works when we see ordinary items substituted with exaggerated, hand-fabricated, conspicuous, borderline faux facsimiles of standard issue props, wtf-class props.  Examples:

  • Bobby Peru's dental work
  • the robin in the window in Blue Velvet
  • Henry's baby
  • lamps/lighting in almost every film
  • all forms of hyper-extended, drawn out speech, delayed responses, near-petite mal seizures...  you get the point...

These things are his signatures.  They mark the film as exclusive to Lynch; he designs with them.  I always imagine he takes a scene he's directing and his id-painter arises in the moment and proposes and idea--how can we authenticate this scene even more, David?  Let's take off that standard bandage from the make-up department, and somebody bring me some olive oil, and tape, string, and a rotten peach, and some random junk...and next thing you know the scene has transcended to a non-standard wtf-class effect.  

How much deeper to take the bandaging thing, I couldn't hazard a guess.  I like to think he just doesn't like boiler plate.

Or, maybe it's significant.

The food the TP hospital serves patients will kill you.

Bizarre bandaging: falling-down drunk attempts to bandage himself with whatever he can find.

That fluid on the floor looked a similar color to whatever  was in that round rock pool or tree stump that Hawk was looking at right before the portal opened up at Jack Rabbits.

Yes, I too thought that a humongous sheriff's station with futuristic computers would have a better way to house clearly ill guys, or girls from another dimension.

Hospitals are very dangerous places. A lot of people die there. (heard it somewhere, can't place the quip right now)

P.S. I hope BOB doesn't come tonight.

For sure-ALL of this is idle theorizing- not just the stuff about about what hasn't happened yet, but about what we seen before our eyes! I just endorse our sll taking a deep breath, and, even in the face of the most whacked-out dive of strange speculation, to stand opin awe and admiration of the human imagination.

of course, here's me, asserting that Paul is dead (-;

Hi Brandy,

It's because they are double R's!  😉
