Very respectful to long time friend and collaborator.

I agree. I think how they handled the Log Ladies death was beautifully handled. For those that don't know, the actress died from cancer right around the time principal photography began. Knowing she probably wouldn't live to film her scenes, she and Lynch secretly shot her footage a few months earlier. They actually had a In Memory of Catherine Coulson back in episode one, so I found it very touching that in this episode it was to Margaret Lanterman, the real name of the Log Lady. Here is David Lynch's comment regarding the death of Catherine:

Quote:“Today I lost one of my dearest friends, Catherine Coulson. Catherine was solid gold. She was always there for her friends – she was filled with love for all people – for her family – for her work. She was a tireless worker. She had a great sense of humor – she loved to laugh and make people laugh. She was a spiritual person – a longtime TM [transcendental meditation] meditator. She was the Log Lady.”

—David Lynch

As for the episode as a whole there was so much going on. We're starting to see resolutions to some of the storyline's, Ed and Norma being a big one. Going into the Convenience Store and seeing Jeffrey's was pure Lynchian -- I never expected to see Bowie's character evolve into a giant industrial tea kettle.

And Audrey... I never thought she was in a coma and we were seeing what was happening in her head, but I did think her being in a mental institution was possible. I now think that might even be wrong, and that, while confused and a little unstable, she's a shut in. I also don't like the theory that Richard is the result of Mr. C raping Audrey while she was unconscious after the safety deposit box blast. That seems too dirty even for Lynch. Richard mentioned to Mr. C he knew who Mr. C was from some old photos his mother had, so I think it's more likely that after Audrey woke up and Cooper was gone, she never got over the affection she had for him and just had a keepsake. I doubt she would have kept his photo if he raped her.

And the final scene in the Roadhouse was pretty bizarre. A young woman in a booth waiting for someone, two big guys come by and move her to the floor, and then she crawls through the crowd only to start shrieking. Something bad is coming...

Overall, this is probably one of the best episodes to date. And did anyone else catch that Mark Frost was the guy walking to dog in the woods?

Richard called Mr.C "Cooper", so it makes sense.
The strange couple in the woods made no sense to me.
It Makes sense that Bowie's chararecter took on a new life.
This also happened with Michael J. Anderson's role.

My coworker has a theory I can't stop thinking about now: 

Mr. C is the real Cooper, had absorbed Bob and is undercover as his own doppleganger, and Dougie is a decoy for us, the audience.

I don't think it really totally makes sense but what a fascinating idea.

Ed and Norma gave me a tear, but Log Lady gave me the full waterworks.

The Dutchman convenience store was cool but I was really hoping for actual David Bowie to show up.

I don't understand what's going on with Steve and Donna's sister, Gertrude, Gerstein, Gretchen, whatever her name is; G Hayward. I get they have been cheating on Becky but what were they talking about? They were so out of breath I couldn't understand the whole second half of their conversation. I heard "why did she do it?" "There's no why, I did it". "You didn't do anything, don't say that". "Whisper whisper", gun to the temple, "whisper whisper". "I like f--ing you". "Whisper whisper".

Why'd she run from him around the tree when the guy with the dog showed up? Feels like I missed a scene where they explained she's not supposed to be seen with him or something.

Yeah, pretty sure Audrey is the new Harold. The agoraphobe.
Did you hear the joke about the high wall? It's hilarious, I'm still trying to get over it.

It is fascinating, but I don't think there is enough evidence to support this theory.

There's another theory floating around that the Cooper in FWWM is also Mr. C because of how Jeffrey's reacts to him but, again, I don't think there is enough evidence to support it. More likely, Jeffrey's is just confused after being above the convenience store for the first time.

This would have been amazing if they'd been able to keep Bowie's appearance a secret but, alas, it wasn't meant to be.

This seems to be the biggest issue for people this episode, but I'm waiting to decide if it was needed or not. With three episodes left and scenes that don't seem to be relevant coming together, this scene may prove important. And if you're wondering about what was said someone transcribed it.

Thanks for that. 

I assume the "Why" is regarding Becky shooting through the apartment door. As in "why did she try to kill you?" "There's no why, I know what I did to push her to try to kill me, and perhaps I even deserve it." And he's high on "Sparkle", god knows what that does to your brain, but it seems he's convinced that he screwed up big enough to deserve to die. 

Maybe that's all wrong though.

Do you think the drooling parrot guy in the jail cell is a woodsman in disguise somehow? When Mr. C was at the Dutchman, didn't the appearance of the woodsman sitting down, vaguely mirror the drooling fellow? There is so much mirror/doppelganger/tulpa stuff in this season, I can't help but wonder.
You are not your f*cking khakis.

No idea but I think we're calling him Billy for now.

New theory. This one's mine but it's an extension of the idea we're seeing multiple time periods.

What if the Roadhouse scenes all took place on the same night? I'm trying to piece together what we know about them and we either focus on one or two characters or people we've never seen before. Or a band plays one song.

Then suddenly, something that may be plot relevant, the guy who almost got run off the road. It could be Billy, who maybe was drunk driving and crashed, hence his current state and setting. It could be Richard since he fled town in a hurry and has a history of vehicular homicide. Or... as my theory would have it, it could be Mr C arriving in Twin Peaks. 

If that guy almost getting run off the road was the same night as rubber glove man knocking that same guy out, then presumably it's also the same night Mr C will arrive and will have to face off with rubber glove man.

I can't recall off hand whether the recurring characters are in the same clothes each time we see them maybe I'll go back and check.
