Squeeze his hand off
the piece of flesh that the police received off the gun and the piece of flesh recovered from the trunk must be related!
Could Ike the spike be the librarian denogganator?
Ike the Spike is hired by Vegas dude via disappearing red button pager person (Philip Jeffries)?
The ring found in the headless body(Garland Briggs?) was Dougies ring from Janey-E
So Buckhorn and Vegas are related.
Hastings wife is killed by Mr C and made to look like the lawyer.
The piece of flesh reminds me of the ear in Blue Velvet.
Just thinking out loud..,
That's why I thought it didn't make sense, no matter how hard Dougie squeezed, for the skin to get stuck onto the gun so firmly, that when he pulled off his hand the skin stayed on and was torn off the hand. (Plus it looked pretty easy to peel off the gun later)
My first thought was Ike was just using another person's skin to get the prints. But then that piece of skin didn't look like it had finger parts.
i have noticed, like most other David Lynch fans, that a lot of his prior works have been popping up in the new season of Twin Peaks.
in this episode for instance, EvilCooper says to Diane "At your house" in a similar way and tone that Robert Blake's character said to Bil Pullman in Lost Highway.
when the Arm appeared during Ike's attack of Cooper, and said repeatedly "Squeeze his hand off!", it reminded me of the little boy in Dumbland watching his father trying to remove a stick from a man's head. the boy repeated over and over "Poke his eye out! Poke his eye out!".
the head of the evolution of the Arm even looks similar to the head of the boy in Dumbland.
do you think that David Lynch is intentionally including moments from all of his prior works into these 18 hours? and if so, why?
these are just 2 examples, but there are countless others (ie: Naomi Watts' pink blouse from Mulholland Dr, Cooper flying through space like the boy from the Grandmother etc)
It seems to me that Ike could be an evil incarnation of the "Arm" (the real-world tripleganger analogue of that yellow hissing Evolution-Of-The-Arm-Tree-Thing we saw in the Lodge). This would explain why the "squeeze his hand off" advice given to Dougie comes from the good EoTA, and why Ike is a dwarf. It would explain why his hand is unworldly and malleable ("sometimes my arms bend back" manifested?)
