The Giant And The White Horse

Carel Struyken is credited as ??????? at the end of the show, not as "The Giant" as you might expect. Why?

We know alchemy and astrology are involved. Fire walk with me. This is the water. Jupiter and Saturn converge to open the door to the Black Lodge. And what else? When the lady texts to that answering machine she sends the word ARGENT. Argent is a tincture of silver, like quicksilver, which is mercury, which is the messenger of the gods, to an answering machine which is a messaging device. Dougie turns into a gold ball. Gold is the color of Apollo, the sun god, Sunny Jim. Hmm…

When Coop is in the Waiting Room, on the end table next to him is an art deco model of Saturn. Saturn, who in modern days is known as Father Time, sends his children out of his mouth (only to eat them later). Who else sends children out of his mouth, who also looks like Father Time?

The Giant is Saturn.

As for the White Horse, in apocalyptic lore, the White Horse is pestilence. Like a mass of unwanted insects. Like that frog-legged bug that hatches from the egg that came from the atomic bomb along with Bob.

The Giant is now credited as ????????, exactly 8 question marks. SATURN is only 6 letters. JUPITER is only 7. By the way, you know what is exactly 8 letters? Guess what... THEGIANT

The woman who lives with the Giant is credited as Señorita Dido. Dido is a figure from Greek mythology as well. Although in classical times, Saturn is sometimes said to be married to Ops, a godess of plenty and the harvest, usually depicted as a Rubinesque woman.

Upon further viewing, I notice that Laura comes out of the Giant's head. Athena is born out of Zeus' head. To the Romans, Athena was Demeter, and Zeus was... Jupiter.

Laura gets ripped out of the waiting room in season 3, episode 1. The One Armed Man asks at least twice, "Is it future, or is it past?" What if Laura getting ripped out of the waiting room is when she is born out of The Giant's head, and travels to Earth? Maybe it has to happen at that particular moment, when Jupiter, Saturn, and Earth are aligned?

Athena is Greek and the roman equivalent is Minerva. Demeter is also Greek and she is another goddess (of Harvest, Agriculture etc).

I think they might all be a collage of all the different characters Lynch read or studied about Greek mythology .... I don't think we will ever find out who they are up there in the white lodge... this might just be his interpretation of ....."heaven"? 

Lynch is a "creator of worlds " he created twin peaks and the lodges so in his crazy mind they might just be characters of his own world 

I was just thinking about the Giant 's human alter ego who appeared as SEÑOR DROOLCUP  in season 2 and now she appears as SEÑORITA Dido.... who knows ???

hy ! regarding the astrological "saturn and jupiter"

i find a lot of movements on june and july (this year we are going to be able to see those planets only on june and july) they are going to be more shining only, nothing about them together. 

take a look :

December guide to the bright planets

 

do you remember the episode of this?

When Coop is in the Waiting Room, on the end table next to him is an art deco model of Saturn. 

 

 

Im verry into this astrological theory.

In the Theories section of this TP site, admin. Pieter Dom posted about The Giant.

Twin Peaks Soundtrack Reveals The Job Or Name Of Carel Struycken’s Mysterious “???????” Character

He included a screenshot showing the credits for ep. 1 of The Return, and Struycken's role is clearly listed as ??????? - 7 question marks, not 8 as stated on this thread.

Pieter suggests this isn't the same character as The Giant, but is clearly related. On the soundtrack album for The Return, Badalamenti's music for the levitation scene in the new ep. 8 is titled "The Fireman." That rather definitely identifies what the character's name is, or at least what one of his names is, and he notes that Fireman has 7 letters, and that perhaps that name is to suggest that he's a fireman because he fights against evil.

A "Fireman" in the old coal-burning steam engine days was the person responsible for keeping the fire burning at the proper temperature to keep the engine running correctly. His job wasn't to put fires out, like a modern-day firefighter, but to maintain fire properly so that the ship/train/pump/machine functions as it should. I suspect ??????? is that kind of fireman; his role is not to put out fire but to keep it under control.
