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.
