This "Twin Peaks" Easter Egg Is So Amazingly Creepy And Brilliant You'll Freak

Doppelgänger Coop, I see you. H/T

Welp, we're officially four episodes deep into the new season of Twin Peaks and let's just say...

Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed / Showtime feels good to be back.

Now, as any Twin Peaks fan knows, there's a ~special~ way in which Agent Dale Cooper greets his boss Gordon Cole.


It should involve a nice snap and a point.

However, when Gordon finally "found" Coop in the new season (or at least who he was TOLD is Coop because, as we all know, it's just Mr. C – aka Doppelgänger Coop – parading around as our favorite FBI beau), he very accurately pointed out to Albert, "I don't think he greeted me properly, if you take my meaning...something is VERY wrong."

And Gordon may not realize just how DEAD ON he was with this instinct.

And Gordon may not realize just how DEAD ON he was with this instinct.

Let's just back up for a moment though. Remember how everyone (minus Coop) talks in the Black Lodge – i.e., they TALK BACKWARDS?


Really, talking backwards, but then played forwards to give the Black Lodge an extra CREEPY vibe.

Well, it turns out the evil spawn of the Black Lodge, Doppelgänger Coop, (accidentally?) spoke backwards when he greeted Gordon in Episode 4 of this new season, too.


But I BET you missed it.

It's SUPER subtle and quick, but Doppelgänger Coop literally says, "It's yrev, very good to see you again, old friend." See that? "It's YREV (backwards), very good..."



Don't believe me? Check out this great video from Weird Cinema breaking it all down:

This marks the first time anyone speaks like this outside of the Black Lodge and now has me asking all KINDS of questions...


Like, will Doppelgänger Coop speak backwards more and more now? Does this mean "evil" is seeping out from the Lodge? Will it affect anyone else? And, because this is Twin Peaks, WHY is this happening?!?! Guess we'll find out soon...although, let's be real, probably not (which is okay too)!
