While going over the events and details of this apparently-revolutionary
show, I've come across a few tidbits which I sincerely hope someone out
there can make sense of (forgive me if I repeat any previous postings)...

For one thing: a lot of people are hot on the idea of Laura and Madeline
switching places.  I persoanlly am not.  However, supposing that the two
cousins *did* switch, hair dye seems to be the central hang-up.  As far
as I can tell, most people see this as a problem because Laura's dead
body (actually Madeline's in this theory) would have evidence of hair
dye.  My idea is this - what about Madeline being a natural blonde and
Laura, posing as Madeline, is the one with her hair (dyed black)?

As far as the ever-suspicious Leo goes, I found his comment about
"needing new shoes" interesting because, in underworld and spy circles
the term "new shoes" refers to getting a new identity (new credit cards,
passport, etc).  Maybe Leo plans on skipping town, ala new identity?

On to the (IMHO) *big* issues - Tibet and the Dalai Lama.  Doesn't it
seem unusual to anyone that a Llama was in a vetrinary clinic in a small
town like Twin Peaks?  It seems to me that the Llama in the clinic is
(symbolically) linked with the Dalai Lama himself.  And if this is the
case, then how are we to read the Llama's snorting at Cooper (who is such
a great Lama fan in the first place)?  Hmmm...

While on the subject of Tibet (someone please correct me if I'm wrong),
isn't Mount Everest in Tibet?  And next to Mount Everest is K2, the other
"highest mountain."  And as I understand it, Mt. Everest and K2 are
together known as... the Twin Peaks!  (Like I said, I could be completely
wrong about this - help!)

One last thing - is anyone else in love with Audrey Horne, or is it just
