«Twin Peaks» ostensibly was a murder mystery about a homecoming queen named Laura Palmer. Her sad story was entangled with secrets kept by her best friend, family, classmates, lovers and psychiatrist. But there was always more to it than just Laura’s troubled life.

When FBI Agent Dale Cooper came to investigate her death, he found an impressive array of suspects, ranging from drug-dealing trucker Leo to a possessed one-armed man. There was the eccentric Log Lady, as well as an extra-dimensional evil place called the Black Lodge, a dancing backward-talking dwarf, 카지노사이트 owls that weren’t owls, a creepy entity named Bob and endless doughnuts, cherry pies and really good coffee. In short, «» was like no procedural we’d ever seen.

When Laura’s creepy doppelganger in the red-draped Black Lodge told Agent Cooper «I’ll see you again in 25 years,» we got chills. Now that time has come.

With the «Twin Peaks» revival (18 hours in all) set to debut on Showtime with a Sunday, fans have just a few days left to look back and gather clues about what’s in store for Agent Cooper and the quirky citizens of the Pacific Northwest town. (Disclosure: Showtime is owned by CNET parent company CBS.)

The original «Twin Peaks» lasted two seasons, a total of 30 episodes, on ABC from 1990 to 1991 and was followed by the 1992 prequel film «.»

A few books added to the lore. «The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer» was a 1990 spinoff novel written by Lynch’s daughter Jennifer Lynch. «Twin Peaks: An Access Guide to the Town» by David Lynch included everything from Norma Jenning’s cherry pie recipe to the type of tree the Log Lady’s log came from. And most recently, in 2016, «Twin Peaks» co-creator Mark Frost penned «The Secret History of Twin Peaks,» which would set the scene for the new series.

Because it’s easy to get lost for weeks, if not years, obsessing over «Twin Peaks,» here’s a handy guide to highlights from the original TV series, the prequel movie (with deleted scenes) and books that might be important to the upcoming series on Showtime. Keep in mind this is only a tiny sample of what happens to the characters.

«» (1992)

The film, «Twin Peaks» co-creator and 카지노사이트 director David Lynch said in interviews, is «» to understanding the new series. I suggest watching the full movie for any possible clues as to what’s ahead.

The key to this prequel isn’t just seeing how all the pieces from the last week of Laura’s life fit together before she’s murdered. It also serves as an introduction to how Bob came to possess her father, and why Laura demanded her father kill her rather than be Bob’s next unwilling host.

The big clue to pay close attention to is the that murder victim Teresa Banks wears on her ring finger. Laura Palmer wears it. Then Annie. The ring also shows up in dream sequences that take place in the Black Lodge. Bob seems to kill anyone who wears it. The ring wearer also loses feeling in the left arm, which could refer to the ring’s former owner the One-Armed Man known as Mike.

«The Missing Pieces» (deleted scenes from «Fire Walk With Me»)

After watching «Fire Walk With Me,» be sure to watch «,» which strings along all the deleted and extended scenes — 90 minutes worth — from the film into its own bizarre narrative.

«The Missing Pieces» is available as a bonus feature in the «Twin Peaks» Blu-ray box set, but various scenes are also scattered around YouTube.

One of the key scenes shows how Bob tried to possess Laura. Frank Silva, 메리트카지노 who played Bob, died in 1995. But as we can see in , when Laura goes from her sweet smile into Bob’s eerie grimace — perhaps this will be a hint of how Agent Cooper will channel Bob in the new Showtime series.
