since twin peaks started again, i think we're in desperate need for a "WTF"- button on this app, so we can truly choose from all the right emotions for an episode of the show!

Un episodio che va al di là della percezione umana.
Un episodio che più che guardare, bisogna interpretare.
Un episodio unico nel suo genere.
Un episodio che boh! Io non c'ho capito un cazzo!

An episode that goes beyond human perception.
An episode that more than looks, you have to interpret it.
A unique episode of its kind.
An episode that boh! I did not understand a fuck!

Mia personale interpretazione: l'uomo con l'invenzione della bomba atomica ha rilasciato tutto il male nel mondo (un po' come Pandora con il suo vaso) creando così la Loggia Nera. Il gigante e la donna (che li ho interpretati come dei guardiani) vedendo tutto ciò hanno creato una controparte che è la Loggia Bianca...ma come tutti sappiamo, 25 anni fa questa guerra è stata vinta da Bob a discapito di Laura...

P.s. Posso aver detto un sacco di ca****e...ahahahah

My Personal Interpretation: The man with the invention of the atomic bomb has released all the evil in the world (a bit like Pandora with its jar) thus creating the Black Loggia. The giant and the woman (who interpreted them as guardians) seeing all this have created a counterpart that is the White Loggia ... but as we all know, 25 years ago this war was won by Bob at the expense of Laura .. .

P.Š. I can say a lot about ca ... and ahahahah

For anyone felling lost after watching this episode, I found this very impressive analysis (credit due to kluseba, an Imdb user) :

The explosion of the atomic bomb led to the creation of the ultimate form of evil. This creature that gives birth to BOB seems to be the same creature that killed the young couple in the first episode and might be the entity referred to as ''mother'' in the third episode.
As a response to this and in order to keep things in balance, the Giant and the wife create a creature that is going to become Laura Palmer.
The young couple in New Mexico must be Laura Palmer's future parents, Leland and Sarah Palmer. There are two things that seem to be happening at the same time. The creature that is crawling inside Sarah Palmer's mouth has been sent by the Giant and the wife and is going to become Laura Palmer. At the same time, the woodsmen are preparing a counter-strike and hypnotizing the locals in order to prepare for BOB's arrival who is going to possess Leland Palmer which isn't shown on screen. This explains why Laura Palmer, who was supposed to be an example of purity, has become a fragile soul that has lost parts of its innocence when she got contaminated with BOB via Leland Palmer's semen. Laura Palmer is therefore both an angel and a demon. With this knowledge, she is obviously a threat to BOB which is the reason why he contaminated her and later on tried to possess her. Since he was unable to possess her, he killed her but instead of destroying her, she was sent to the Black Lodge and separated into two distinct entities representing her good and her evil side: doppelgänger.
The woodsmen in the episode are victims of the explosion of the atomic bomb who haven't found their peace of mind and seem to be supporting BOB and the evil entity to get their revenge for the horrible things that have happened to them. The presence of the woodsman in the prison in the first episode and in the morgue in the seventh episode means that BOB alias Evil Cooper are informed about everything that is going on. Leland Palmer asked the Good Cooper in the Back Lodge to find Laura Palmer. Bringing her back to life in her purest form would mean that BOB and Evil Cooper are in danger and that's why they, their numerous associates and the woodsmen are threatening Douglas Jones, who is Good Cooper's host.
This means that BOB's nemesis isn't Dale Cooper but Laura Palmer. The former represents the evil that men do and the latter the good that men do. This means that the strange entity that created BOB could be the devil while the Giant who created Laura Palmer could be God.

The fact that an hour-long Lynchian horror film can be casually aired on TV as just another episode of Twin Peaks reminds me that I am very lucky to be living in 2017.

Who expected that this show will reach THIS level of surrealism when it all started with a body of a high school girl... God, what a long journey we've had and I got this feeling that we won't get any answers until the season finale.
