Okay.  Here's my .02 cents.

Owls -- I think the owls are simply guardians of some sort.  This is
  something I've posted about before (last fall).  The owls are the
  eyes and ears of the Black Lodge.  But I don't think it's inherent.
  The Black Lodge merely employs or uses them to its own end.

Chess -- Why does Coop even bother playing the game with WE?  Unless he
  knows that playing the game is safer than NOT playing.  Otherwise, it
  seems to be just a plot device to portray the recurrent struggle or
  theme of "good" -vs- "evil", "white" -vs- "black".  The game will 
  either be wrapped up with the final episode and WE will be dead, or
  WE will survive to haunt Cooper in future episodes yet to be written.

Windom Earle -- You'd think that the FBI would be out in force combing
  the woods and the entire Twin Peaks area for this guy.  Especially
  since they know he's already killed several people and is bound to kill
  a few more.  WE made a fatal mistake when he uncovered the Cave Drawing
  (IMHO) but he is unaware of this.  I think he intends to use Cooper to
  find out where the entrance to the White/Black Lodge lies.  After that,
  Coop is dead meat to him.  I think WE and Major Briggs already know
  each other, but perhaps by different names.  WE may end up killing
  the Major (or will try to).
Cooper -- If the series is to continue on some other network, Cooper MUST
  survive.  He may go down and take injury, but it will all be in the noble
  line of duty.  Annie, though, I'm afraid, might be killed off in this
  struggle.  This would serve to doubly-resolve Coop's intent of destroying
  WE and the Black Lodge.  I think he will succeed in killing or at least be
  instrumental in the killing of WE.  But even with WE out of the picture,
  the Black Lodge will continue to exist and exert it's influence upon the
  people of Twin Peaks.  If the series is to continue, this theme of White
  -vs- Black Lodge must also persist.  The Owls too, must persist.  Coop's
  going to have to make a real effort to trap WE or at least bring him out
  into the open.  Perhaps Booby Briggs will get involved somehow?

Leo -- I think the "monster" may eventually become free and cause the real
  undoing of his creator, WE.  Leo's reaction to WE's obediance collar was
  particularly chilling in the last episode.  He even spills his beer!  I
  imagine that Leo has only one thing on his mind, that being the total
  destruction of WE.  Even if it means his own death.

Black Box -- So far, we only have the gifted and the damned, their visions
  and their fears, and a strange Cave Drawing.  Not to mention a lot of
  carnage.  There has to be some kind of OBJECT that keeps the whole shebang
  going.  Or a set of OBJECTS.  What they are I don't know.  But, they would
  be or act like a focal point for the power of the Black Lodge (and White
  Lodge) to have and sustain access to the locale of Twin Peaks (and the
  world at large).  Maybe the Black Box with the astrological symbols and
  footprint is but one of these OBJECTS?  I think the Black Box is a time-
  piece of some sort depicting a time which has or hasn't yet come to pass. 
  It may contain something of importance inside it as well.

Lastly, what might possibly lie *behind* the wall of the Cave Drawing?  It
  seems to me that there are other "unknowns" about this cave.  Perhaps it
  is a vortex or a massive "power spot" that receives and transmits psychic
  energies of those around it?  Be they people, animals, trees, sacred
  writings/drawings, and/or OBJECTS.
