Joe's Eyes

Postby threnos » 11 Apr 2011

Reading Joe's character profile I was intrigued by the fact that he has mismatched eyes in the dream, one brown and one blue, while in the meeting with Diane his eyes match and are a slightly different shade. I was wondering if Diane's mind was associating his right eye as being brown because of the coffee mug on that side of the table by him being brown and his left eye as being blue because it is closest to the blue key when he holds it up. It's some mundane item that her sleep state could have incorporated and processed strangely.

I really don't think we got to the bottom of this at all.

Don't know but opposite what looks like a KW or KWI in a circle looks like some sort of critter wearing a bowler hat too small for his head

Skeleton Key?

Postby blu » 27 Jun 2011

I haven't had much time recently, but I've been going back through some of these threads and something has struck me about the 'critter' on the key.

It looks suspiciously like a skeleton, does it not?

It just looks like a key dude with 2 arms and a hat to me...though, his 'face' does look a little funny.

Not to freak anyone out or anything but what if the Assistant Director on the Sylvia North Story opened a diner.

That's actually quite freaky. Synchronicity at work.

Rewatching Twin Peaks at the moment. Somebody else with two different coloured eyes. In a slightly different manner.

hmmmm .... ha!!! just now the realization... Dr. Jacoby has different colored eyes and so does the guy who played Jacob in LOST. <-- Joke.

anyway, yeah, looking through the red curtains of the black lodge with one eye. Looking through the blue curtains of Blue Velvet with the other eye. The magician longs to see.

I'm thinking his eyes are different colors in the scene with Ed, because at that point in the dream, he was representing two people at once: himself (as the literal killer) and Diane (who hired him and ordered the hit).
