And then I went and forgot to give the reasons I was thinking of!  Well,
here you go.

SPOILER WARNING:  this information comes from the Twin Peaks teaser 
commercial that's currently playing on ABC, which we saw last night while
watching "Voices Within:  The Lives of Truddi Chase" (don't ask).  Those 
who don't revel in sucking every nugget of information out of ABC's marrow
should hit n now.

(I wish I knew how to get an ^L in Emacs)

In the commercial, among other things, we see:

- A fire starting at the mill;
- Jacoby, in some bushes, reaching out towards the camera;
- Cooper opening his closet at the Great Northern, to see someone (we
  only see the person's lower half) who is wearing black clothing and
  leather gloves, and lowering a large gun at Cooper's midriff--Cooper
  looks nonplussed at this;
- Hank looking in a rusty mirror at some unknown location;
- the same shots of Audrey dealing and Leo's pickup surrounded by police
  that were in the previews at the end of last week's episode;
- and possibly some other stuff I missed because we haven't replayed
  the commercial 5 times yet.

Have fun!  I'll post again if I discover anything more.
