It has been 27 years since Twin Peaks debuted, which means creators Mark Frost and David Lynch have had a lot of time to think about how to make Season 3 the weirdest season yet. The first two episodes of the revival aired on Showtime Sunday night, with Episodes 3 and 4 available online. For fans of Lynch’s unique style of storytelling, the new season did not disappoint.
The plot takes place 25 years after Season 2 finished. We learned that Agent Dale Cooper’s soul is trapped in the Black Lodge while his evil doppelgänger has been running amok in the real world. The doppelgänger is due back in the Black Lodge, but he has something villainous up his sleeve to keep that from happening.
While we are not sure why, we do know that the evil doppelgänger is specifically targeting and killing certain people. In one case it appears that he had the Twin Peaks High School principal arrested for murder — which he committed … probably.
It is still too early to really get a grip on where all of the plotlines will lead, but for the time being, it is nice to enjoy the backward dialogue, harsh music score, and all-around weirdness that is Twin Peaks.
Twin Peaks airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
