Who is Bing?
Another thing, the people missing from the first shot after bing runs in and yells (two from the left side of the counter, and one from the right) are seen around bing in the second shot, all males, as if confronting him or chasing him out......
A way to take this as a clue would be to use the investigative technique that Cole told to young agent on the plane, the left hand(specifically ring finger) holds the 'spiritual mound', while the right is more conscious-explicit ego etc, thus fingers/hands/arms are and have been clues throughout(check out Dianes finger nail colors and how she touches her fingers as her ideas and speech shifts, also colors are big).....Now in relation to Shelly who is in the middle, the people on the left are almost like finger on a left hand, and same on the right.....Bing is able to change this configuration, provoke blue figures(among others_ to appear on the left, take away the pleasant 'well rounded' old man who shelly was pleased with by the (green red and yellow) etc., then walk in the back door and take center stage for Shelly at the front counter by the door, where the hands/arms are focused etc, the forming of their impact on reality, etc..
Also notice how there are two males dressed in black right at the front who talk to Shelly, when she walks away they are sort of hitting each other in a playful way, as if challenging and excited by Shelly, then when Shelly comes back she seems open to them....Bing is able to take this spot with his little game, tricking the sleepwalkers
This scene is loaded with the idea that Twin peaks has never dealt with its problems, just letting them go and never solving it.....Laura was an exception, now all you have to do is call the roadhouse for two lauras anytime, plenty of them, laura is mother.... In relation to bing, shows that the men who try to deal with the problem 'up front', confront him and return to their self-satisfied slumber as if everything is going to work out(politics, law, ethics, etc. all degrading slowly and surely, but magically this will all be OK, everything is OK, go back to sleep) then ignore the real impact this has, ensuring its enduring impact, so that it comes in from the back(its true intention) to take center stage.....Twin Peaks never dealt with Laura Palmer, just buried her as a prom queen who was the victim of a contingent murder, never investigated and fixed the problem...
What about 'bing' in its ordinary meaning, as some kind of 'aha' event, when people figure out 'how things work', or some kind of unexpected discovery while following a clue which sheds light on the whole situation, a cause which gets to the heart of the problem, etc.? Combine this word bing with sleepwalking and then asking the question "Where is bing?" is pointing out the fact that twin peaks is still 'sleepwalking' never figured out the 'case' or followed the clues they needed to, namely laura and her involvement with the perversion of twin peaks as its now permanent 'law'.
This also sheds light on the 'cleaning up' of the roadhouse as if it was a murder scene from 'psycho', old 'prom queen' laura was murdered, now the 'bing' is desiring new perverse-evil laura: while Jean is able to fully participate in the crimes laura was involved in on a larger scale then before, the whole 'scene'(a murder of 'good laura') is cleaned up, not taken as serious, as if it will be redeemed somehow without properly confronting it, allowing the whole town to 'sleepwalk' for 25 years.
So when there is a 'bing' moment, 'lauras law' of perversion rules, where everyone knows 'how twin peaks works', act like 'laura and her men', these are the rules, etc. During the trouble song 'bing' the character appears(also associated with the color purple), Richard gets the bing, pays off the cop and acts sadistically; also the woman who abuses her dying husband for selfish cheating, etc.; hastings and his wife; when Mr C. says 'you follow human nature perfectly', he means, you follow 'lauras law' perfectly, which Cooper(evil part, Mr. C) submitted himself to after his dreams of twin peaks and laura were destroyed by laura herself. 'Laura's law' is the 'bing' everyone discovers, it is the law, 'how the world works, how orders people to act, ordering the them to violate the law for shallow ends and give up the mystery, ignore the clues, etc., which of course spirals out of control into terror and tyranny as people chase this, fail, want more, fail, not satisfied, fail, pressured to violate more,(like laura herself) etc., getting more violent as it progresses
What 'bing' is missing? The fact that people never investigated laura's predicament and remembered it as if she was still the ideal girl, and example to follow, who accidentally was killed etc., allowed the problems to continue, while hiding the guilt of everyone in the town who still fail in their duty to solve the case and the problems of the world that are revealed by it.....
And counter-posed to twin peaks is Dougie-Cooper who did hit his 'bing' moment, after being reminded of jackpots/'bing', mouthing 'jackpot', then suddenly realizing himself as 'agent' and changing his mental frame. Also notice the presence of left arm here, the arm shows up, and then after the fight, the left arm is immediately hidden again as represented by the guy in the blue coat hiding his left arm, also notice colours of purple and gold. This is a 'bing' moment in antagonism with twin peaks' bing, which lacks Cooper-Dougie's proper 'bing'/jackpot which conflicts with the 'bings' of Mr C., Beverly, Laura, Richard Horne, et all.
Cooper has the proper 'bing' twin peaks is missing, and Cooper-Dougie is missing a proper twin peaks and a proper 'laura'.........
I have no horse in the race on whether the word was Billy or Bing (or both just to screw with us). In the event it was Billy, do you think it was a Bill introduced this season, or someone else?
Personally, I hope he said Wally, and we get some more of the Fonzie-level cool of Wally Brando Brennan.
