 It was so terrifying and spooky , I never felt anything like that in real life or watching a movie. I literally felt an ice cold electric current going down my spine and into my body. Really terrifying. Just wanted to share this.

Happy and thrilled.  To me, the scream suggested Cooper/Richard had delivered Laura/Carrie to the right place. 

If Carrie hadn't screamed, we would have been left with Cooper looking lost and defeated.  To me, that ending would have suggested that the entire thing could have been Cooper's dream.  The scream dispelled any Cooper-dream theories, for me. 

Laura's screams during the original series scared the wickers out of me.  Truly terrifying stuff.  I was so glad to hear that awful sound again!

Yeah, her scream knocked me sideways, kept me frozen in place and left me speechless. It also had me feeling that "everything makes sense now" (even if I didn't and still don't know what that sense is exactly).

It reminded me how well Sheryl Lee can scream, and that 25 years after Fire Walk With Me, she is still just as talented at it as ever.  But within the context of Twin Peaks, it was devastating to me.  It feels like Laura will continuously be in torment, repeatedly over and over, and can never really rest in peace.

The gifted and the damned... Cooper is the gifted one but Laura seems to be always damned. She can never find a peace, even if timeline is reversed and she survives the abuse of Bob, there's still a Mother calling her... Think how hopeless situation it is: in one reality her father is the killer, in the other it's her mother. For a regular person it doesn't matter that parents are possessed by some evils like Bob or Judy or whoever... Terrible hopelesness and loneliness. It's good to have Cooper. In this moment I don't blame Dale for giving up all his life to save her.

You make some excellent points here about the challenges of Laura's life as "the one".  I still haven't rewatched the final episodes, so I'm not fully on board with my own feelings.  I agree with you that Cooper should be able to help protect her, but I'm not sure he's the same Cooper.
