Richard and Linda's Parentage

Diane's reaction to BadCoop strongly implies he sexually assaulted her in her own home.

There's also a theory that Richard Horne is BadCoop's son.  Here's a link to that theory which includes spookily similar side-by-side photos of them assaulting women:

‘Twin Peaks’: These 2 New Characters Are Bringing Dreadful Deja Vu to the Show

I've also attached the photo to this post.

This theory gains traction in Episode 7 when Doc Hayward reveals he saw BadCoop leaving the intensive care unit in the hospital before he disappeared.  Audrey was there and BadCoop may have assaulted her while she was in a coma.

All of which is horror on a level I can't even begin to process.  I suspect this is why I am burying myself in the analytical details.

The Giant said to Agent Cooper:

"Remember 430.  Richard and Linda.  Two birds with one stone."

What if Richard and Linda are BadCoop's children?  Richard Horne from the assault on Audrey, and Linda from the assault on Diane? 

Linda is mentioned by Carl Rodd's friend Mickey as they drive into town in Episode 6.  She is a veteran in an electric wheelchair.  Diane may have had Linda adopted - there were no signs of a daughter in Diane's apartment (photos etc.)

It would be an interesting interpretation of the phrase "Two birds with one stone".  BadCoop being the metaphorical stone and his children the birds he created.  Diane did say he is missing his heart...

I feel this is a train of thoughts a lot of us are sharing. And given some of his previous works (Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive came to mind) I could totally see Lynch going for something along these lines - at least, as far as Richard Horne is concerned. Not sure about Linda, but that's kind of beyond the point (even if Linda is unrelated, the scenario is still utterly horrifying) 

I have the fury of my own momentum

i thought it was fairly implicit that she is shelly's daughter. though its plausible that she is taking her under her wing not unlike norma being her own maternal figure

No, I wasn't referring to Shelly's daughter Becky. 

We've never seen a Linda onscreen.  But Mickey talks about a Linda who is both a veteran and in a wheelchair when he's getting a ride into town with Carl Rodd in Episdode 6.  I was just thinking that maybe there is a connection between the Linda and Richard mentioned by the Giant.  If Richard is BadCoop's child with Audrey Horne, then Linda could be his child from his assault on Diane.

This is certainly plausible, although so far I don't see any hints that Diane is having any child.

Others have theorized that Linda is actually Audrey, who is now hiding (from who??) in some kind of witness protection program (hence is using another name), and is now on wheelchair after the bombing incident.

I think we're going to see Audrey and Linda sometime in the next episode or two, then this mystery will be solved one way or the other.

I find it absolutely delicious, with all the wonderful mysteries this series has thrust on us, that right now, Richard Horne's parentage is the most fascinating to me. Why? How did he supplant the mysterious Glass Box in NY? Well, it's because the Horne's have long been among my favorite characters on the show. And even though we've seen a little bit more of them as of this past week, we still know pretty much nothing about where they are in terms of the community, their family or each other. Audrey's absence is obviously stirring so much, hell, even Johnny's absence. Is Ben still married? Did he take back Jack's after the failed coup headed by Jean? Only time will tell, but right now all this lack of information about the Horne's we know is making the origin of the Horne we don't know - who also happens to be a mesmerizing example of evil thus far - my most anticipated revelation.
