Season 4...does the book change your mind on the feasibility?

Exclude for a second all the real life logistical reasons we may not get a Season 4, with regards to the story it seems to me that this (unfortunately) will be it.  By the time we are done with the book Agent Preston is leaving a Twin Peaks with no Laura Palmer murder...history has been rewritten.  Without the core element of the entire series, I think it’s hard to continue forward with the story.  I think they could possibly do a side story explaining what the hell is going on with Coop and Laura/Carrie.  Or, maybe Frost can convince Lynch to give us a Gordon Cole FBI response to Agent Preston’s investigative notes in book form.  As much as I’d love more Twin Peaks, my thoughts are that TFD puts us in a place where we can get more explanation, but no more forward plot movement.  What do you all think?

Damn, it feels good to be back on the board talking Twin Peaks! 🙂

Hi Mark,

Permit me to reply without answering you main question, but I think the above was by far the most important reveal in the entire book.

We all now live in reality in which Laura Palmer didn't get murdered.

I think it depends upon how interested folks are in the Lodge entities and the Blue Rose Project. Lots of threads within Twin Peaks can be investigated further to satisfy the fans more into that side of things. Plus, I want to see Hawk in his rightful place as sheriff of Twin Peaks!

Personally, I don't think for a second that rearranging the space-time continuum to save Laura Palmer was really just about saving Laura Palmer. Sadly, girls are murdered all the time. Cooper and the FBI wouldn't risk so much to save one of them just because they had a soft spot for her (and if Carrie Page is her future, I use the word "save" very loosely).

This must've been about something much bigger in Twin Peaks mythology that wasn't fully explained to us, so I'd imagine there are many possibilities for a Season 4.

I mean, think about it: a year ago, could you have predicted anything about Season 3?

Helluva good point.  I was right there with OP though too. 

Also, yeah, this seems like a spoiler post.  Fair warning helps

No, it shouldn't get in the way of a season 4. Nothing really makes much sense at this point. I mean, since Laura Palmer didn't die, how can Tammy Preston be issuing the Final Dossier? It is an outgrowth of the SHOTP, but that work's pages must have changed  since Laura didn't die. 

So nothing is settled and we will always need more of this. Until we learn why "Laura is the One," nothing has really changed. There is no reason to believe that "Jouday" was destroyed.

It's worse than that.  How does Tammy even know the name Laura Palmer?  In this reality, she was just a girl that disappeared and was never found.  The FBI looked into it for a little while, but now it's simply one of thousands of dead cold cases.

LOST fans went through all this alternate reality brain-bending stuff for a couple of years.  Down that Jackrabbit Palace - White Rabbit hole lies madness and endless paradoxes (like the Jacoby and Amp pair o' docs)  that probably leads directly to a herring-bone parquet-patterned paved road to the Red Room - complete with Jerry-Horne-shaped caterpillar on a mushroom, smoking a hookah, and arguing with his foot.  =:-O

With apologies to Gracie Slick:

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
