Welcome to Diane… #25

This time on Diane the world of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks feel alive with interior intelligence, as Rosie, Adam and Mark peer at episode 23, also known as The Condemned Woman, through the lens of ANIMISM.

A refreshed Benjamin Horne goes green, three angels find rapture in the lonely shore, and a beautiful woman gets eaten by the wood.

What is a drawer knob and, dear listener, what happened to Josie?


If the world is truly quantum animated, then there is an immense amount of invisible inner experience going on all around us that is presently inaccessible to humans, because our own inner lives are imprisoned inside a small quantum system, isolated deep in the meat of an animal brain.

We’re trying to make Diane the top Twin Peaks recap podcast that there is, the intrepid journeyer’s best companion through the woods. If we’ve been able to help you scale new heights of understanding and appreciation, please bless us with a five star review on iTunes and we will laugh together all the way into heaven.

    The Great Fear of the audience and of TP in general: “Cooper, the safest of all places in the series, is not actually safe. The darkness of the woods dwells in the center of him as well.” THAT’S the way to summarize the thing of it. I DO want him to stand above it all.
    Also wrote this down from this episode: Caroline’s murder is Cooper’s Laura except she was never there in the first place. She’s an emptiness, a phantom, we were never presented with her. IN THE BOOK EITHER. A Hole where a Perfect Woman should have been. YOU’RE ON FIRE, TEAM DIANE.

    Another thing I never noticed before your episode:
    Face in the breakfast at the beginning, and in the drawer pull in the end. Josie bringing in wood at the beginning, wood bringing in Josie at the end. Lots of bookends in the episode I’ve never given Brock and Glatter credit for before this.

    And I’m on record enjoying Wheeler. This guy is understated and charming and his ONLY demerit is not being Dale Cooper. I wish they’d introduced him two episodes earlier to give him and Audrey even more backbone before he was literally swept away into the air to match Audrey’s state of mind.

    Earle trying to create a black magic form of marriage through dominion over a woman rather than collaboration-style union is a pretty telling observation too…I am eternally in love with how you all look at this series. Always makes me unearth new feelings for something that’s sat near me for over 26 years. You’re out there calling people legends but you’re the legends.

    No mate, you’re the ledge.
