I wonder if coop and diane boning in the motel was some kind of ritual deal to get to judy, like how the kids on the couch in front of the glass box seemed to draw it out and the sex cult magic shit out in the desert during the atom bomb test in the secret history book. that part of the book also mentions jack parsons wife marjorie cameron, as a woman with technicolor red hair who showed up after he had done some other ritual in the desert. “Once a magician stands between two worlds, he’s in danger of not belonging to either one of them.” there’s a million ways to think about the finale and even seemingly contradictory ones feel like they could coexist together
also I only just now realized gordon putting his hand in front of his face in fwwm was supposed to be jail bars for the uncle. for some reason I always just wondered how chet made the leap from uncle to uncle in prison and knowing to ask if it was a federal prison
In fwwm I always thought the old woman and her grandson were symbolizing some other family afflicted by abuse and trying to be helpful. like alternate what if versions of sarah palmer and laura’s kid she aborts in the secret diary wandering around. though I never knew what to make of the teresa banks murder taking place in the chalfont trailer. and now chalfonts and tremonds own the palmer house in this other world. and the kid had the mask and stick thing connected to the jumping man who now has the face of sarah palmer, who seems to have judy in her and isn’t so nice anymore. I don’t know what it all means but it’s creepy.
that was odd jefferies saying gordon will remember “the unofficial version.” also just the way jefferies was talked about by gordon “the day he appeared but didn’t appear, was apparently there, doesn’t really exist anymore,” etc and like he was just now remembering the jefferies scene from fwwm, almost like it didn’t exist until he dreamt about it.
I kept listening for it but I don’t think I heard the noise the arm “sounds like” ever. it wasn’t the same as the electricity crackle we heard all season. but maybe it’s supposed to sound different outside the red room. I think the electrical pole outside carrie page’s house sounded a little different from all the other electrical noises we heard though.
it was weird all these years to be thinking and wondering about things like the shot of the telephone pole in the trailer park in fwwm or the electrical socket in teresa banks trailer and now to actually see things like someone come out of a electrical socket.
