Meanwhile, Sherilyn Fenn has followed up on her veiled threat to go platinum blonde. It looks ridiculous to me. Hopefully it's either for the show or can be reversed, if it's a fit of pique. One never knows with her, but I don't think Lynch would abandon her.
I think a bipolar story for Morgan was a great idea. I don't think Carly coming up with it out of the blue a week ago and Morgan turning into Twitchy Tim down by the river overnight is the right way to handle it, but that's what they're doing. It's beyond rushed.
I don't think they're taunting anyone. I do think that's a likely scenario that would play out in the face of any kind of epidemic like this, especially in this supercharged political climate. The infected would inevitably get shot in the streets and initially, the populace would protest what is perceived as police brutality.
I know there was an article with the showrunner as well as an interview with Elizabeth Rodriguez (Liza, the ex-wife), where they both said they felt the scene was more of an indictment of the existing breakdown of trust between the police and the people over incidents like these.

TPA's full location report of the setup in various locations around North Bend and Snoqualmie as it happened yesterday, with many pictures and lots of info.

I believe there was also talk not long ago of one of the two locations used for the Palmer house (one for the series, one for FWWM) being brought back into play.
After weeks of waiting, Twede's Cafe in North Bend, Washington is finally undergoing renovations today as we speak to begin its transformation back into the Double R Diner after 24 years. Pix of the event as it happens are on Twin Peaks Archive's Twitter.
