Over a week since Twin Peaks finished and people are still trying to make sense of it. Even I’ve tried to garble some sort of theory that I’ve pulled out of my arse, but two theories stand out with one providing some hints and the other being the best explanation I’ve read so far as to just what on earth Twin Peaks was about.
This long, and fascinating theory by David Auerbach is essential reading for fans, and indeed any viewers of the programme as it is without doubt the clearest, most convincing theory out there. Revealing the series has a symmetrical structure isn’t a massive revelation, but a lot of what Auerbach theorises isn’t just convincing, it seems too good not to dismiss as what Twin Peaks was about.
Next is this video that shows that the 2017 series isn’t just wrapped round the original series, but something on the road map to where we got to at the quite chilling ending.
I love the fact that we’ll be talking about this for years, even decades because Lynch never reveals what his films are about so we’ll have to rely upon people to come up with their own interpretations and so far, these two are ahead of everyone else.
