When you revive your show 25 years later to solve some cliffhangers but just create more cliffhangers instead 😂

You say you're disappointed with Lynch, I say I'm disappointed with you all, damn it. How can you even think David Lynch would give you something predictable, or even something that you want? You should treasure the extraordinary inapprehensibility of what you saw. You can't just have all the answers; life is incomprehensible, dreams are incomprehensible. Lynch is visionary, disturbing; he likes to play with the fragile thin line between reality and fantasy, good and evil. You should fell blessed you live in the same age in which this gigantic genius lives. I sure do.
He once again enriched this plain, boring place we call earth with surprising and unexpected and puzzling, subconscious madness.

So, what year is this?

Here's a theory about the finale found on the Internet, I'd rather call it an explanation than a theory, here it is:

"So, we learned that Judy is a tricky bitch.

Cooper saved Laura from bring murdered that night. However, Judy stole Laura before she and Cooper could get back into the White Lodge. At that point, BOB had been destroyed prior to Cooper going back in time to save Laura.

Because Judy took Laura on the way into the White Lodge, it means that Judy is still out there, and still active. Cooper re-emerges from the Black Lodge to meet Diane. At this point, reality is somewhat stable; BOB is still very much dead.

However, when Diane and Cooper are in the car near the powerlines, and it's close to 430 miles, Diane clearly says, 'We might not be who we are now, once we go through.' Cooper and Diane go through and the timeline utterly shatters.

Judy will do anything to protect herself, because Judy is Mother. Judy punching the picture of Laura was a direct result of anger and frustration at Cooper trying to pave over history and stop Laura's death - which he succeeded in doing. When Diane and Cooper cross over at the power lines, they emerge filling the shoes of Richard and Linda. We also have an occurrence of Diane seeing her Doppleganger.

The ending timeline has been utterly screwed with, to the point that Laura doesn't recognize her name, and barely the name of her Mother. Laura's house isn't owned by Sarah; but it was sold to the present owners by the Chalfont's, who we know to be Black Lodge agents, who might very well be working for Mother. The biggest clue here is Dale pausing and saying loudly, 'What year is this?' to which, Laura has no answer. Saying 'what year is this' breaks the fabrication. Laura screams as she screamed in the Black Lodge, the house is flooded with a burst of electricity, and the reality is shattered; everything turns black.

Dale went after the big game of trying to get Mother. It didn't work out too well. I truly hope we get Season 4."

This helped me get my head around things 👍🏻

When you give an artist creative freedom you get something truly special. Thank you, Lynch, Frost, MacLachlan and everyone involved with the show. That was one hell of an ending.

Twin Peaks Fans: "Oh boy I can't wait to finally get the answers I've been seeking for ages!"
Lynch: "Yeah, that's not gonna happen. Also here's some MORE questions that'll never get an answer, LOL BYE"

Twin Peaks è finito e:
-Non si sa doVE CAZZO SIA AUDREY.
-Ancora non si sa che cazzo di fine abbia fatto Annie.
-Josie è rimasta nel pomello a quanto pare.
-il ronzio nel Grand Northern Hotel (che ho sempre creduto potesse essere Josie che cercava di uscire dal legno o robba del genere) è rimasto lì.
-Bobby e Shelly non sono tornati insieme.
-I personaggi nuovi sono stati lasciati perdere.
-Cooper torna e pare risolvere tutto in una puntata per poi perdersi nuovamente in una timeline alternativa.

In conclusione, tutto molto bello, Lynch, ok la robba onirica , inquietante, inspiegabile e tutto, però onestamente vaffanculo

Twin Peaks is over and:
- You do not know CAZZO SIA AUDREY.
-Only you do not know what Annie's fuck did.
-Josie has remained in the knob apparently.
-the buzz in the Grand Northern Hotel (which I've always believed could be Josie trying to get out of the wood or stuff like that) stayed there.
-Bobby and Shelly did not come back together.
-The new characters have been lost.
-Cooper returns and seems to solve everything in a bet then get lost in an alternative timeline.

In conclusion, all very beautiful, Lynch, ok the dreamy, scary, unexplainable and everything, but honestly scream
