Ike "the Spike" "Hidden Frame"


Hey everyone. While rewatching episode 6 for the third time yesterday, I noticed a weird glitch in the hotel room scene. Ike just "spiked" the left photo, the music stops and then a weird, artificial glitch appears. (Check it out in motion, if you can)

- has someone already noticed this?
- is it just a reflection? (doesn't really look like one)

I couldn't take an hd screenshot, so if anybody knows something more about it, just let me know! It almost looks like a crude drawing, a playing card or something. It unfolds within 2 or three frames and then it is gone.

As far as I can see, it happens a couple of times, just before he punctures the picture and right after. But, to me, it just looks like the normal reflection you have through windows when a car is passing nearby and the windshield catches and reflects the sunlight.

Like Häxan says, it might just be a car passing by and catching light.

But even if it is just that, I wouldn't be surprised if Lynch co-opted it as a "happy accident" and made it into a signal from the Black Lodge. It does look rather like those bits of "phantom" light as seen with "Dougie" Cooper in the casino and at the work meeting ("He's lying"), and after that hit-and-run when the old man looks up while consoling the mother.

And don't forget that Ike smells funny (little girl, part 7). I wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to be another Evil-Coop creation meant to snuff out the real Cooper, along with everyone who might thwart his plans.
