Rewatching season 4 episode 1. The following conversation takes place between Michael and George Michael:
GM: “well, I’ll vote you out.”
M: “I wouldn’t do that. Then, I fall down a flight of stairs and crack my head open, and you’ll feel bad about yourself for the rest of your life.”
IS THIS A CLUE ABOUT WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO LUCILLE TWO BECAUSE I’M THINKING YES SHE HAS VERTIGO AND GETS DIZZY YOU KNOW
I love season four and the murder mystery seriously guys help me analyze this
Assuming the security camera timestamps are correct - and this is admittedly a pretty big assumption, since the time and date on GOB’s phone when he gets Tony’s call are definitely wrong - then this is the order of events at Cinco:
At 7.13pm GOB has left the party and is back at the model home with Ann. That puts Michael’s conversation with Lucille 2 on the staircar some time before 7, because we were told that happened at the same time as GOB was talking to his father. (The big problem with this is that it’s pitch dark outside throughout Cuatro. In California. In early May, when the sun shouldn’t set till 8pm YES I DID LOOK THIS UP SHH)
At 8:52pm, Oscar makes out with someone in view of the security camera. It’s assumed to be Lucille 2 - she puts a campaign sticker on him, the Narrator says Oscar was “polling for Lucille 2” and they’ve been having an affair - but technically we don’t actually know if this is her. If it is, she was alive well after her conversation with Michael. However, the stairs are in darkness (note how dark they are compared to the next image). The body might already be there.
At 9.23pm, during the blowback (which GOB started, but which the Narrator said wasn’t noticed for several hours - that fits with the model home time) Buster runs in front of the same security camera. It’s not clear if Lucille 2’s body is on the stairs - there’s definitely a dark shape there compared to the later security camera shot.
He turns and sees what’s apparently Lucille 2’s body (which is never in focus, although this could be because it’s a stunt double)
(For comparison, this is what Lucille 2 was wearing earlier)
Buster staggers and the screen goes black for a few seconds - when he looks again the body has disappeared. It’s now 5 minutes later, 9:28pm.
Lucille 2 could have fallen accidentally, as foreshadowed in the Michael line in 4.01, but if so then somebody still knocked out Buster and moved the body (or Buster blacked out and somebody moved the body, or Buster did it himself - though he would have to get rid of it and get back to the same spot in under 5 minutes.) If that’s L2 with Oscar, Michael didn’t push her or leave her to die unless they had a second encounter later. If that’s someone else with Oscar and L2’s body was already on the stairs, Michael left her there for several hours before going back, attacking his brother and hiding the body. However, Michael couldn’t have wiped the 5 minutes from the security footage because he didn’t remember Cinco.
(I realise we’re not going to solve this one because it’s going to be a ridiculous curveball nobody saw coming, but I like puzzles and it’s fun to try and put the pieces together :) )
the thing about twin peaks is that laura’s never slut shamed or blamed for her death and the horrific abuse she suffered her entire life
her abusers (and an entire town standing by and letting it happen) are blamed for her death and abuse
it is one of the best things about the show and THEY REALLY SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU I don’t know how people can ever overlook it or be shitty about how important it is
like THIS SCENE
between that and our introduction to Laura’s death basically being Andy crying inconsolably over her
it’s super important
> is a dudebro
> sucks a cock
> “it’s a metaphor… no homo :/”
you put the dick in your mouth… but you don’t give it the power to homo you
Aghrr… sorry. Didn’t read the whole script.

Blunder Meta: Some Thoughts on A New Attitude
Sorry this has been a while coming, I’ve had a busy couple of weeks (essays, illness, flatmates’ birthdays, tattoos!) so it’s taken me longer than I’d have liked to get this all written up. I’m fairly new to the Bus (I joined around Christmas time…’twas a Christmas miracle) so I’m sorry if I’m repeating things that have already been said!
Full meta under the cut :)
