Chain thread for chronicling and discussing all instances of the number 430 throughout the series (or even adjacent to the series).
No matter how far fetched or improbable.
I'll start with this passage from The Autobiography of Dale Cooper:
April 30, 7 P.M.
I do not know what to do. I find myself in the difficult position of choosing between breaking the trust of a friend and mentor, or denying love.
The feelings I have been experiencing for Caroline are apparently mutual. While on a walk today Caroline told me that she loved me, and has since the first day we met. At first I tried to resist and convince her that I could not say that I felt the same way about her, but she saw through my charade and we ended up in a long and passionate embrace.
I have never been able to say this about anyone, but I love her more than life itself. Every thought, every impulse, every waking second I want to devote to her. I want to help her heal, and I want to protect her for the rest of my life. We made love under a bright spring sun; it was the first time I’ve seen her happy since the end of her ordeal.
I do not know what I will tell Windom when he arrives here in the morning. Aside from the fact that it would be useless to try, I can and will not lie to him.
For the moment we have the night. The morning will be another day.
The following entry was made by Caroline sometime that evening.
I love you, Dale Cooper.
April 30, 11:30 P.M.
Caroline woke from a dream with a scream a short time ago. She had seen the face of the man who had taken her, and is sure that she knows him.
I believe the barriers holding her back are beginning to fall. She has agreed to try another hypnotic session in the morning. I think maybe Windom is wrong on one point.
Love is stronger than evil.
May 1, 1 A.M.
Something is not quite right… Caroline!
The time of the next recording is not known.
I have been stabbed… unconscious… Caroline is dead… Caroline is dead… Forgive me
