David Duchovny returns to Twin Peaks (Spoilers) Our Recap

David Duchovny returns to Twin Peaks

CAUTION THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THIS  SHORT RECAP OF DAVID’S  TWIN PEAKS RETURN AS DENISE.

If you have not watched up through Episode 4, be prepared to be spoiled completely about David’s scene!

First of all, we never anticipated David’s scene to actually be with David Lynch. How awesome is that? What a nice treat. Not only reprising his character in a cameo of iconic tv show, but having the opportunity to do that cameo with the shows creator. It can’t get better than that.

There was also a wink-nod to X-files fans:

If you are up to date on the series, you already know that Lynch has returned as FBI Deputy Gordon Cole, with the character of Gordon playing an even larger role than in the original series this go-round.

After being escorted into her office by none other than Richard Chamberlin’s “Bill Kennedy”, Gordon enters the office of the Chief of Staff and is notified that she is in a meeting.

Denise, now the Chief of Staff, enters with a big smile on her face. She thanks Gordon for coming in and asks him “what have you got?”

“It’s Cooper” Gordon says “We’ve found him”

When Gordon explains they found Cooper (unaware it’s actually Cooper’s doppleganger), in South Dakota, Denise says she heard.

Denise questions Gordon about bringing the beautiful younger agent Preston with him to South Dakota. “Really Gordon?” she quips..

“What are you getting at” asks Gordon.  Denise shoots her an inquisitive look, brilliantly played by Duchovny.

Gordon then refers back to a time when he was her boss. Gordon points out how he supported her through her transition from Denis to Denise. ” .. when you became Denise, I told all your colleagues – those clown comics, to fix their hearts or die.”

Denise replies “As I’ve said many times before Gordon, I can never repay you enough for that kindness.” –Again a very heartfelt and sincere moment between the two characters, well played by both actors.

Gordon mentions that “Agent Tammy Preston has the stuff..”

Denise says she is speaking more as a woman now rather than the Chief of Staff of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.. adding the funny line– “..Don’t you love saying that line at once. Federal Bureau of Investigation all at once. Unabbreviated? It just gives me such a thrill!”

Gordon agrees it is thrilling. Denise mentions that agent Preston is “so beautiful.”  Gordon replies by flattering Denise stating “There’s room in this Federal Bureau of Investigation for more than one beautiful woman.”

Apparently flattery will get you everywhere! This makes Denise blush.  “You know normally I can’t think like this. I have to forgo all that and grow balls of steel to do this job and it’s.. it’s a bitch–let me tell you sometimes. Not to mentions the screaming hormones”

Gordon’s response hormones comment …

Denise apologizes, saying that she trusts Gordon, “And I believe you’re on the trail of something big” she says. “10-4 Good buddy” Gordon responds.

After Gordon exits, we see a wide shot of Denise standing behind her desk fanning herself.

The scene was very sweet and cute. It was nice to see this character again and to see her in an authoritative powerful government position.

We’re very happy Denise had a chance to make her return in the series. Twin Peaks fans have been expressing their delight in seeing David reprise his role.

 

We also did an hour long live video vlog discussion (Yes ONE HOUR) about episodes 1-4. I apologize for the sound. Something happened during the streaming process. Again don’t watch unless you want to discuss in detail everything that happened in those episodes.

 

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson Talk X-files Season 11 (E! Red Carpet)

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson on “X-Files” Revival | E! Live from the Red Carpet

David and Gillian answered several X-files related questions about the upcoming Season 11. When asked about the Season 10 cliffhanger with Mulder and Scully, both seem to be in the dark about what Chris Carter has planned for their characters. “Chris Carter has not told me yet whether I’ve managed to save the human race” Gillian told E! “But given that we’re doing ten episodes that I save it for ten episodes worth of time.”

David also commented on something that MANY fans have literally been begging for on twitter, blogs and other social media platforms – the possibility of him contributing to the writing team “I don’t think that the people playing the characters are the best judges of where the show should go. Nor do I think the fans are to be honest with you”

(insert screaming face emoji here)

I do think that the show would benefit from David contributing to the story arcs as he did in the past. Some of my favorite mythology episode arcs were those that he developed with Chris Carter. They were some of the best episodes of the series in my opinion.

In regards to doing an X-files musical episode David laughed and said “I don’t think that’s a good idea but I’d be down for it. Sure.” Gillian on the other hand made it clear it was not something she would want to do “No. Nah-uh. No. No. No” she said.

While we clearly adore David’s music and have no doubt they could both make it work, I would have to side with Gillian on this one.

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson at the FOX Upfronts & Webby Awards

Excited for The X-files Season 11 yet? We’re definitely getting there! Here is something to hold you over until we (hopefully) start getting set pictures in August.

The elephant in the room – David’s arm is in a sling! We don’t know what happened but we hope it wasn’t too painful and hope he’s on his way to a speedy recovery. Between his injury and Gillian Anderson’s broken foot, it was an interesting sight on stage at the Webby Awards. David presented Gillian with the Best Actress award for her critically acclaimed role on The Fall.

The Webby awards ceremony will be available to watch on Youtube tomorrow.

In the meantime, we have some clips we have gathered from around the Twitterverse.
