#atozchallenge: F is for Fire…

07 Apr

The subject of today’s #atozchallenge and the next addition to my own B-Z of Twin Peaks, isn’t a character as such, but it is so ingrained in the character and atmosphere of the show, it may as well be.

In fact, Lynch named the prequel movie after it.

I’m not sure if there’s an official name for it, but we all know it as the Fire Walk With Me speech, which Mike delivers in Cooper’s dream; a cryptic explanation of the Black Lodge and a warning about Bob.

When Cooper inspects the scene of Laura’s murder, he finds a scrap of paper with the words Fire walk with me written in blood, then the whole poem crops up in his dream, but it’s that one line which sums up the dark themes and images of Twin Peaks so well, so it’s no surprise that it has become an integral part of the mythology of the show.

Watch the short clip below to see Cooper’s dream in more detail.

    I’m going to have to watch this aren’t I? Like I didn’t already have enough to do this month (wink) I’ve been reading everyday and I think I may have to queue this up so I don’t forget.

        It’ll get spoiled, I guarantee it. Watch it when it’s on, that’s my advice.
