SPOILERS ahead for those who have not yet seen the 4/18 episode!!
SHAKES: The shaking hands really intrigued me. Right away, I thought
of seizures induced by rapid alternating flashes of light and dark,
in this case spiritual light and dark, not physical.
Then I thought about tuning forks, and how the Gifted could receive
vibrations from the forces around them. (But the first shaking hand
wasn't the Log Lady's, was it? Who *was* that woman at the RR counter?)
In fact, I like the idea of tuning forks a lot. Remember how Cooper
described the puzzling clues as (drastically paraphrased) similar to
a piece of music with missing bits: "I can't hear it yet, but I CAN
GIANT: When Annie said maybe she would enter the Miss Twin Peaks
contest after all, and then Coop said she would make a good Queen,
the Giant appeared. Was he warning Coop to stop Annie from becoming
the Queen, or was he warning Coop to stay away from Annie altogether
because she is part of the Black Lodge (as conjectured in a previous
posting; sorry I don't have the reference)?
OBJECT: In a previous posting someone said they were sure that what
passed in back of the red curtain in Coop's dream was a rectangular
object. Was this the OBJECT from the Black Box? What *is* it?
The (un)Holy Grail? A key?
BLACK HOLE: In the final scene, BOB seems to emerge from the "other"
plane, and stands looking into a hole in the ground: a black hole,
ringed with white (snow?). The red curtain from the dream appears in
the hole (reflected in black water?). There may be more than one portal,
but this one was clearly ringed by trees.
BEN: What do you think frightened Ben Horne(y) so much?
