Hello! Infrequent poster here. I wrote this article and thought you'd might like to read it. In it, I expand thoughts I expressed in the Speculation thread a while back, though the editorial is not connected to a theoretical season four. It is "my own ongoing personal investigation" into the meaning of The Return's finale. Cheers! Sidgwick https://whatculture.com/tv/5-years-later-twin-peaks-the-return-ending-finally-makes-sense
