I'm sold.  Laura Palmer is alive and well.  I don't have the hair
figured out, but Madelyn did not respond in the way any normal woman
responds to seeing a large, hulking goon (or any stranger) staring at
her in a public place.  A big, wide smile, and immediate conversation?
More like a reaction to a friend.  Also, her expressions are exactly
the same, which is not true of most actresses when they play two
different roles -- but Laura was not an actress.

This also makes sense of the code in the dream.  "She's my cousin, but
doesn't she look almost exactly like Laura Palmer?"  "Are you Laura
Palmer?" "I feel like I know her, but sometimes my arms bend back."

Finally, best moment of the show:  Emerald stroking Chet's head and
then looking at her hand.  Second best:  "I put four in the eyes and
one in each nostril."
