The Secret History of Twin Peaks
About this deal
The dossier contains documents pertaining to the town of Twin Peaks and its inhabitants, particularly Douglas Milford. They primarily appear in little cameos, be it a main character like Doc Hayward or a background figure like Cappie. In life you have to learn to live with paradoxes, and sometimes what we think we know isn’t what actually happened. The end of Season 2 finds Agent Cooper trapped inside the Black Lodge, while his doppelgänger in the outside world is possessed by the evil entity known only as Bob, a cliffhanger that Peaks fans have obsessed over for the past quarter-century. In 1990 and 1991, Pocket Books released three official tie-in books, each authored by the show's creators (or their family) which offer a wealth of backstory.

Another idea made fairly clear in the book is the existence of a far-reaching conspiracy to harness the power of the Lodges. It’s tempting to theorize that Mark Frost might just be ditching the continuity of the second year, outright rejecting parts of a season that many found troublesome or at least all over the place.And while on the series Major Briggs came across as somewhat at the mercy of the higher government forces to which he answered, here he seems both more in charge of Blue Book and also lonelier and more adrift in terms of directing the project. But Episode 19 shows USAF Colonel Calvin Reilly to be a superior officer who is into the loop with Listening Post Alpha activities.

Lynch missed out on certain portions of the early development of the second season due to the rushed post-production schedule for Wild At Heart, and he drifted again mid-season when he disagreed with the decision to reveal Laura’s killer. The Access Guide states the Martells arrived in Twin Peaks after the Packards, but the Secret History states the opposite. In the book, Lawrence Jacoby had moved to Hawaii by March 19, 1989, writing his final notes about Laura and had his license revoked on March 26.And though there are no major revelations on the scale of Doug Milford’s importance, we do get to see how many of those people and relationships developed, such as the tangled web between Norma and Hank Jennings and Big Ed and Nadine Hurley.
