Love reading all the theories on this forum.

Just wanted to add that although I have been living and loving this season I have been most disappointed with the lack of Ray Wise, although I am not sure how he could have been intertwined and of course there are still two episodes left...

However just thought I'd open it up to discuss ideas on how he could have played a greater part in this season?

Insofar as his character died in the original series, and his spirit is trapped in the lodge...

I was thinking more as a lodge spirit guide like Mike to awaken Cooper with the purpose to save/find Laura. Or appearing in Sarah's visions/trauma etc...

i'm sure we all would've loved to spend a little more time with uncle leland but that's just how it goes i guess. maybe we'll catch a last glimpse of his ghost in the finale, at peace at last, up there at pearl lakes paddling around in canoe or something, singing weird show tunes 🙂

I think you'd enjoy his role in the 3rd season of Fargo - which overall was a letdown from the first two, but Wise's role was a high point. Very mystical and weird, yet strangely, reassuringly benevolent.... he might sort of be God. It's not Lynch, but it is the Coen brothers. There's no demonic convenience store, but there is an otherworldly bowling alley. 😉

Just a few seconds till now. I think there will be some more in the last two Parts, but not that much.

I'm not a native English speaker. Please be kind...

One curious thing: After production but before the show aired, Ray Wise said he was appearing in every episode. Maybe misdirection, or maybe cutting room floor?

I love his acting and wish he had a more prominent role. But I do think there may be a brief Palmer family reunion in the final episode.

I bet we see him briefly, if Coop finds Laura. I loved him in the earlier seasons too.

Actually, even though Fargo is based on a Coen Brothers movie, the Coens themselves have nothing to do with the show.  It's still brilliant though!

Yeah, I posted that a little carelessly and almost corrected myself (but then didn't). However, they are executive producers of the show, which I think amounts to a stamp of approval if nothing else. 😉

Is it, though? In S02, he seemed to depart in peace, having been freed of BOB.

Hi Lisa,

I agree, Ray Wise is one of the best actors Lynch and Frost could have brought back.

I still wonder to this day why they wrote him one line (that was delivered twice), when they could have wrapped him into the story.

Or maybe Ray wasn't available for more shooting? (hard to believe).

Either way it's the one questions I would ask David Lynch if I had the opportunity.
