Before we return to Dougie (Kyle MacLachlan), Lynch denotes a time cut by taking us to Twin Peaks, by night, to a familiar totem of the town from the show's early days. It's the stoplight at Sparkwood and 21. The light glows an ominous and sickly green, through amber, to red, suggesting the ghost of … Continue reading 6:2 – Don’t die
