"Who Didn't Kill Laura Palmer?"

What I wrote to fellow Peak Freaks Mary Hutter & Charlie Eadie today:

I have a crazy theory for Season 3: What if Cooper emerges from the Black Lodge into a parallel universe where Laura was never killed? Maybe that explains the filming scenes with Coop and Laura by the Palmer house, if they are not dreams? Think about it: Cooper returns to the mystery -- "Who didn't kill Laura Palmer? Why is Laura still alive?" All kinds of quantum mechanics & string theory at play!

It hits the reset button, flips everything on its head, allows for original characters to return or not, allows Lynch and Frost to focus on whatever storylines they damn well please, fits the whole doppelganger/yin-yang themes, and explains...."I'll see you again in 25 years." As in literally, in the flesh.
