**Facts for this post have been sourced from the Twin Peaks: A Limited Event Series Blu-ray and DVD, which is available in the US Dec. 5. Buy it here!**

3. In fact, the entirety of Twin Peaks: The Return was shot completely out of order.

This scene above with the Mitchum brothers (which took place closer to the end of the season) was one of the first ones the actors shot together.


4. In real life, the building that's supposed to be the Twin Peaks sheriff's station is actually across the street from what was the Packard Sawmill in the original series.

7. Eamon Farren was so scary as Richard Horne, that a lot of the cast and crew were both horrified and impressed by his performance.

On his first day on set, Harry Goaz could hear Eamon's screaming from far away even though he couldn't see the action.


9. The back of Wally's moto jacket actually says "BRCM."

Which is a play on Marlon Brando's jacket in The Wild One, which has "BRMC" written on it, and stands for the "Black Rebels Motorcycle Club."

10. Interestingly, Carel Strycken (The Fireman) actually filmed scenes inside the Red Room.

But none of these shots made it to the final cut in the show for some reason. (What was he doing there?!)


14. Lynch also likes to call Richard Beymer (aka Ben Horne), "Buster," while Beymer likes to call Lynch "Bucky J."

This is maybe a reference to Lynch's uncredited voice work as "Bucky J" in his own film Inland Empire.

15. Sheryl Lee and other cast members who appeared in the Red Room would use an iPhone to practice their lines backwards.

They'd record their lines normally, then play it backwards to learn how they had to say it backwards.
