Twin Peaks: The Return ep 8: Welcome to Weirdsville, Pop.: Lynch
OK, that was….something.
I think the key to understanding everything that happens after Ray drives away from the back road can be found in this speech, from Twin Peaks s1e03. Coop and Truman have withheld insulin from the One Armed Man, prompting ??Black Lodge Spirit?? Mike to take over his body.
Through the darkness of future’s past, the magician longs to see. One
chants out between two worlds… “Fire… walk with me.” We lived among
the people. I think you say, convenience store. We lived above it. I
mean it like it is… like it sounds. I too have been touched by the
devilish one. Tattoo on the left shoulder… Oh, but when I saw the face
of God, I was changed. I took the entire arm off. My name is Mike. His
name is Bob.

The spotlight shining on Maddy in “Episode 14” is an important part of David Lynch’s cinematography for the Leland/BOB revelation scene. Before the scene, the spotlight shines on The Giant in The Roadhouse–a public place–and is mirrored when Maddy comes downstairs in the Palmer’s home–a private place. The Giant transmuted both places and focused on the difference between Leland’s public appearance and his private appearance (BOB).
