I recently finished watching the famous 90s TV series
Twin Peaks. I liked it for most parts but the ending confused me and I couldn't really understand what had happened in the end.
Was Agent Cooper responsible for all the deaths? I mean there was no body of Windom Earle recovered in the end. What happened to Windom Earle if he was the one responsible for all the deaths?
I just thought since the ending portrayed Agent Cooper becoming Bob he could be the one responsible for all the deaths and Annie was just his imagination in place of Windom Earle's wife (Sorry had forgotten the name).
From whatever I read in blogs, it seemed like David Lynch was not so keen on directing the second season after the killer of Laura Palmer was revealed and just directed the episodes (series finale was directed by him I believe) for the sake of directing. Is that true?
Or am I missing something in my understanding of the series finale, which I didn't understand?
I have already read the wiki summary of the show ending. It really just gives us a description of what happened visually rather than what we should interpret or how we should understand the ending really. I read some blog posts as well but I couldn't really find a good source which actually says how to interpret the ending.
So, basically my interpretation was something like Agent Cooper had imagined everything (even his coming to Twin Peaks) after he had killed Windom Earle's wife (That would have probably explained his reason of becoming Bob towards end). I'm looking more for an answer on how to interpret the ending as there were lots of loose ends.
Windom Earle's body was never found. If it had been Black Lodge/White Lodge, is this not a mystery/suspense show? It would have been more towards the supernatural type.
I have lots of questions but wouldn't want to post everything if indeed the ending was just a way for answering the TV network's request to stop.(I mean, again read from some blog post that David Lynch was never interested in continuing the TV show after Laura Palmer's murderer was revealed). So, it could be that David Lynch just wanted to give as much weird stuff as possible just to make the audience mad :)
