This ‘final dossier’ is an analysis by Agent Tamara Preston regarding certain person-of-interest: Annie Blackburn, Audrey Horne, Leo Johnson Windom Earle, Diane, 'Judy', Dr. Jakoby, certain other characters, and naturally Agent Cooper. She spills the beans on certain life events- and inconsistencies in their written case histories in last year’s Secret History of Twin Peaks. There are even some attempts at explaining certain supernatural entities. Since there will probably be no more Twin Peaks TV episodes or movies, this may be the best we’ll get as a parting gift from co-creator Mark Frost. The stories are fascinating, and there are few visuals (as this is the Kindle edition), but it’s engrossing and I sat and read it in one long reading. It’s almost like reading a plot synopsis for a missing Twin Peaks season. Definitely worth the read, and writer Mark Frost knows these characters inside and out. Engrossing, but still retains some of the mystery…
Otherwise a great read that fills in a lot of the plot holes and open some new questions as well highly recommended for a super fans of the show although on another level I like the fact that we didn’t know some of these things - you can get away without reading it - but I could not resist and felt very rewarded and felt like I finally knew what became of many of my favorite characters and what happened after the events of the 3rd season. Pretty great.
Is it a money grab? Maybe.
Did I, as a long term fan of the show, get closure after reading this book? I think so, as long as closure in this case is defined as answering the questions I had about the fate of a number of characters not named Dale Cooper.
The book does bring clarity to the fates of a number of important characters from the first and second seasons, some of whom appeared in the third season, some of whom did not. Whether or not I liked the results that Lynch and Frost decided upon, at least I can understand now where the characters stand as of the end of season 3.
A couple of comments that are at least somewhat spoiler-y, if not only the book itself, but also for the third season. I'm not getting into specifics...for that, you'll have to read the book.
According to what is chronicled in the book, any potential "butterfly effect" from Cooper's actions in the last episode of season 3 appears to be more limited than one might have assumed after watching the final episode.
What is it about Lynch (or Lynch and Frost combined) and their feelings toward women that contributed to the really bleak fates for so many of the younger female characters from the first and/or second seasons? Or, was that decision determined by which actresses were not on board for season 3, and which big-name actresses they were able to secure for new characters for season 3?
Either way, I found that one of the most dissatisfying aspects of both the third season and The Final Dossier.
There are plenty of reveals that I wanted to see in the new series that never materialized. It’s allot of fun to read. Being a fan since day 1 back in 1990, I couldn’t put it down and knocked it out in a few hours. Loved this.
My favorite section is done with Alberts autopsy notes. This would have been a classic scene in TP.
Thank you, Mr Frost... but please, gives us another season of TP with the real Cooper, I miss him.
