THIS TEXT IS SPOILER FREE, SO IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED TWIN PEAKS FEEL FREE TO READ THIS TEXT
In September I had Covid, and the only symptom I had was fatigue. So I had to spend all my time in my bed.
One day I got tired of watching Youtube videos and decided to watch the third season of Twin Peaks.
Previously I had finished the second season and Fire walk with me, so I expected that the Return would have some similarities with them.
I have never so wrong.
The third season was hella different and it was in a way that I would have never expected.
It was hard to watch. But I had Covid and was constantly so tired that I couldn't even get up from my bed to find another TV Show.
So I had to watch the Return. It was inevitable and I had to accept that Twin Peaks.
There were five stages of acceptence.
The first one - denial.
I denied everything. The plot, the new characters, the setting. I thought that everything was wrong with the new season.
The the secing stage began - anger.
I was angry at David Lynch. What had he done? He ruined one of me favorites shows! That was the way I thought. But I kept watching
The third stage - Bargaining.
I was okay with some parts of the show. I even began to enjoy it. But I still couldn't undertand the plot. So I went to Youtube and found a channel where two guys made a breakdown of each episode.
It helped me a lot. And lead to the fourth stage.
Depression. I begun to undertand what's going on (if you can undertand anything that was made by Lynch), but I couldn't agree with everything.
I had an inner dialong about various plot twists and storylines and this lead to some kind of depression.
But it ended. And the fifth stage began.
I accepted The Return. With all it weirdness and crepyness. And I love it. It's a challanging Tv Show and I am happy that I finished this challange.
