If "Twin Peaks" escaped your attention in the '90s, there's probably no better time to reacquainted with it, with a brand new box set arriving at the of the month. Teasingly titled "Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery," it's a comprehensive collection of everything you need including the prequel movie "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" but perhaps most enticingly, 90 minutes of extensive deleted and extended scenes. Basically, a lot of stuff was left on the cutting room floor, and with people now digging into advance copies, we're learning more about the surprises that await within. And obviously, spoilers ahead.

Twin Peaks

If "Twin Peaks" escaped your attention in the '90s, there's probably no better time to reacquainted with it, with a brand new box set arriving at the of the month. Teasingly titled "Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery," it's a comprehensive collection of everything you need including the prequel movie "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" but perhaps most enticingly, 90 minutes of extensive deleted and extended scenes. Basically, a lot of stuff was left on the cutting room floor, and with people now digging into advance copies, we're learning more about the surprises that await within. And obviously, spoilers ahead.

Over at Buzzfeed, they've gone very deep in describing the scenes and sequences cut from Lynch's show, but perhaps most interesting of all, is material that would've connected "Fire Walk With Me" with the finale of "Twin Peaks." Here's the full details, excerpted:

...the scenes about the ending of Twin Peaks glimmer with possibility: One is a longer version of the final scene of the show, in which Cooper, having escaped the Black Lodge, goes to brush his teeth and sees the reflection of BOB in the mirror (“How’s Annie?” he grunts over and over again), before savagely smashing his head against the glass. In this version, he lays down on the floor so that Harry and Hawk (Michael Horse) can discover him, claiming that he “slipped.” Elsewhere, Annie is transported to the hospital from Glastonbury Grove and rushed to the ER in a scene that takes place in the hospital corridor, her body slick with blood. Later, she whimpers in her coma the words that Laura hears in a dream — another example of the conflation of time — before a nurse steals the accursed ring off her finger. It’s this ring that plays a role throughout Fire Walk With Me, seen on the hand of Teresa Banks before her murder (Desmond searches in vain for it before finally seizing it, and disappearing in the process) and displaying a sigil that plays a role in Twin Peaks as well.

When Cooper appears in the Black Lodge in one scene, that ring appears on an ornate pedestal in front of the Little Man; in another, the scene replays the same way but this time the ring is not visible, and Cooper realizes that Annie must have it. And then the ring is slipped off Annie’s finger in the hospital. Just what Cooper’s epiphany means is unclear: Is Annie now vulnerable to possession from the spirits? Is this nurse marked for death? Putting on the ring is what seals Laura’s fate: When BOB is unable to possess her, he stabs her in a fit of rage.

So what do you make of this "Twin Peaks" die hards? Let us know below. But clearly, you will get your money's worth and more when this drops on July 29th.
