“Twin Peaks” may have ended its revival last year, but the world that David Lynch and Mark Frost created continues to live on. Such is the case with all properties with cult followings, and may have been what inspired the Comic-Con panel Saturday night titled “Twin Peaks and the Revival of a Cult Classic.”
Taking place at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel’s Indigo Ballroom, the panel featured an all-star panel including executive producer Sabrina Sutherland, stars Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Brennan), Harry Goaz (Deputy Andy Brennan), Chrysta Bell (FBI Agent Tammy Preston), Robert Broski (Woodsman), John Pirruccello (Deputy Chad Broxford), Eric Edelstein (Det. “Smiley” Fusco), Nicole LaLiberte (Darya), George Griffith (Ray Monroe), Amy Shiels (Candie), and Adele Rene (Lieutenant Cynthia Knox).
David - Bowie - Jeffries - FBI - Agent
David Bowie played Jeffries the FBI agent who went missing in “Fire Walk With Me,” and footage of him was seen in “The Return” as well. Later in the revival, he’s seen again in a different form that looks like a giant teapot.
In a second chunk, Lynch had texted Sutherland, “I got my days mixed up and I’m going to be there yesterday if not sooner. It’s slippery in here. In the Red Room, Special Agent Dale Cooper has already won the Emmy.”
Lynch - Work - Bit - Message - Director
Again, like all of Lynch’s work, there’s quite a bit to unpack in this message. For one, the director seems to have played into the idea that he too has been lost in a realm where time does not move linearly. The sentence, “It’s slippery in here,” is what Jeffries says when he speaks to Agent Dale Cooper after the doppelganger’s death. Later, Cooper ends up back in 1989. The iconic Red Room in the Black Lodge is also another place where time and reality don’t play by the usual rules.
All of this brings us to Lynch’s comment about the Emmy....
