 Hi All,

We all know that colors, even (or especially) black and white, play a big part in understanding Lynch.  During Tammy Preston's interrogation of Bill Hastings, Gordon Cole and Diane are shown listening:

This screen capture is only 750 x 300, but note how Gordon is framed in light and Diane framed in darkness.  If you go back and look at the scene in high definition, they share precisely half the screen, and the dividing line between stands out even more than in this cap.  =:-0

That's strange - even for Cooper

This is interesting. There is a lot of talk about Diane and Mr. C conspiring together but that just doesn't make sense to me. Cooper and Diane worked together for years, and Cooper was such a good judge of character, I doubt she would be evil. I think if anything, maybe Mr. C is blackmailing her somehow, which would explain her displaced anger towards the FBI because she worked for them for so long, and rather then being protected by that sort of position, it actually opened up a doorway to trouble. 

Maybe the dark is supposed to represent a secret, a looming weight on her or something. And the fact that Gordon has no knowledge of it is why he's framed in light.

It's important to note also that the texts were grammatically different and I doubt it was a continuity error, so she could be doing a side investigation with someone working with Mr. C.

THIS. Remember "the last night" they saw each other? Mr C. and Diane are messed up in something incredibly serious together. Only 9 episodes left to see what this big secret is !

Hi Lio,

We don't really know at this point whether Diane is on the side of the angels or in league with the Black Lodge.  I think, though, we can be fairly certain that this is one thing that will be resolved before the series ends.  (Let's hope so, anyway!  ;-))

During the original series, Diane seemed to be the perfect (if unseen) "work wife" for Coop.  It was even easy to imagine that there was some unrequited love between the two, with the possibility of Diane carrying a Statue-of-Liberty-sized torch for Dale. 

However, we now know that Cooper visited Diane just after leaving Twin Peaks, but now infested with that evil, inner-hitchhiking dugpa, BOB.  Recall what BOB wanted from Laura.  It wasn't just the sex he experienced through Leland - he wanted to possess her.  It was only the fact that Mike was able to toss the Owl Cave ring to Laura in the abandoned train car that foiled BOB's plans for her.

Now imagine Mr. C's first visit to Diane.  Dale may have been reluctant to pursue a physical relationship with Diane (much as he was with Audrey), but not so with Mr. C.  It is easy to envision Diane being overwhelmed by this new, long-awaited response from the man she believes is Dale.

And she didn't have a ring to protect her.

Anyway, who knows?!  Half the fun of Twin Peaks is speculating on topics like this!  😉
