* CompleteMonster: [[AxCrazy Killer BOB]] (Beware of BOB) is an entity native to the Black Lodge with a horrifying tendency of rape and murder. Created long ago as a byproduct of the Trinity nuclear tests, BOB accesses the material place by [[DemonicPossession possessing]] hapless victims and forcing them to engage in sprees of rape, torture, and serial murder to [[EmotionEater nourish himself off of their agony]]. Responsible for the murder of Laura Palmer that drives the series, BOB committed the deed by possessing Laura's father Leland when Leland was a child, resurfacing to have Leland molest his own daughter through her youth before using him to finally rape and murder Laura. When cornered, BOB [[PsychicAssistedSuicide forces Leland to kill himself]], and later saddles onto Dale's doppelganger at the end of the first series while leaving Dale trapped for decades within the Black Lodge in its stead. One of the most cruelest beings to come from the eldritch Black Lodge and exalting in the suffering he reaps through his possessions and murders, BOB remains one of the most twisted products to come from the twisted mind of Creator/DavidLynch.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: [[AvertedTrope A major worry of the fanbase and critics before the premiere]] was that; How was Twin Peaks going to compete against nearly three decades of [[Series/TheSopranos original]], [[Series/{{Lost}} weird]] and even [[Series/StrangerThings indirectly]] or [[Series/TrueDetective directly]] inspired tv shows, [[MindScrew thankfully]] our [[GainaxEnding fears were unfounded]]

Added DiffLines:

* SweetDreamsFuel: The [[spoiler: White Lodge scene]] in Episode 8, which is otherwise an incredibly bleak and disturbing MindScrew of an episode. Despite being just as surreal as everything else around it, there's a feeling of hope and benevolence to the scene that comes as a great relief after the pure SurrealHorror of the [[spoiler: Trinity sequence]]. Special mention goes to the heavenly synths on the soundtrack.

** Viewers haven't responded well to the character of Candy so far due to having all of Dougie Jones' EmptyShell qualities mixed with the UnfortunateImplications of being a DumbBlonde. [[WildMassGuessing Some fans believe it's all going to be part of Lynch's master plan, though.]]

* LoveToHate
** Just as in-universe, ''nobody'', ''nobody'' in the fandom likes rude, mouthy ManChild Chad except for a few viewers who mostly just love to hate him or enjoy watching him make his co-workers uncomfortable.

** Eric De Ra's acting leaves much to be desired, even portraying such a one-note character as Leo. This might be why he spends most of season 2 catatonic. His mother being the casting director for the show is obviously what landed him the gig in the first place.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Almost. After spending Season One as a weak-willed pawn being manipulated by Catherine and Ben Horne before running crying to Sheriff Truman, it is revealed that Josie [[spoiler: has secretly been working with Ben to frame Catherine for the mill fire, and also had a hand in her husband's death, which gave her the mill in the first place.]] Then, in the following season, it is discovered that Josie did all this at the behest of another person, turning her back into the easily manipulated victim. One step forwards, two steps back.
