Parallels Between Two Worlds: Watch The Glass Box And Purple Room Scenes Side By Side (Video)

“He’s not here. No one is here.”

Those are Tracey Barberato’s exact words to Sam Colby while Dale Cooper is floating inside the glass box in the other room. Sam’s reply: “Really?”

Misha Melikov has done the lord’s work by syncing footage from Twin Peaks Parts 1, 2 & 3 of Dale Cooper leaving the Red Room, appearing in New York City and visiting a purple universe with the final moments of the Sam (Ben Rosenfield) and Tracey (Madeline Zima) storyline. By synchronizing these scenes, Misha reveals some striking similarities “between two worlds.”

Some observations:

  • 6:58 – The pounding sound starts when Sam and Tracey start having intercourse (between two worlds?).
  • 7:50 – Both Naido (Nae Yuuki) and Sam tell the other person to be quiet.
  • 8:33 – The creature and Cooper’s stuttering movements are quite similar.
  • 8:38 – The creature breaks through the glass as Cooper gets a shock from box 15.
  • 8:45 – Naido mimics the creature’s head attack and we hear the same cutting sounds.

Did you spot any other correlations?

The creature appears in New York City just a few minutes after Dale Cooper disappears. Is American Girl’s (Phoebe Augustine) aggressive “mother” hot on the heels of Coop? Is there a parallel world where real world actions get mirrored? Is the eyeless Naido the magician who longs to see? And why wasn’t Cooper caught on camera?
