Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with MeEdit

Annie appears to Laura Palmer in a dream bruised and bloodied to warn her of her death, but as the events are still to happen, Laura does not understand the message. Annie says, "My name is Annie, and I've been with Laura and Dale. The good Dale is in the Lodge, and he can't leave. Write it in your diary."

Twin Peaks: The Missing PiecesEdit

After recovering her and Cooper from Glastonbury Grove, Truman brings Annie to the hospital, still alive but in shock.


She is later seen in a hospital bed wearing the ring that Laura Palmer and Teresa Banks were wearing on the nights they were killed. Her wounds at this point appear to have been treated, but she is still in a trance. She repeats her message for Laura to the nurse attending to her, though it is not clear if she knows who she is talking to (the shooting script indicates she is trying to communicate with the nurse, but these are the only words she can vocalize). The nurse proceeds to steal Annie's ring, unaware of its importance.

Cooper (trapped in the Black Lodge) asks The Man from Another Place where the ring is. The man replies that "someone else has it now," and silently confirms Cooper's fears that it is Annie.


  • The fact that Annie is shown saying the message "My name is Annie, and I've been with Laura and Dale. The good Dale is in the Lodge, and he can't leave. Write it in your diary," canonically in two very different scenarios raises the question over her connection to the Black Lodge after her kidnapping. From one point, when she is in Laura's bed, she is sending Laura a message from the Red Room warning her of her impending death and Cooper being trapped—"write it in your diary" referring to Laura's secret diary. This puts her subsequent repeat of the warning to the nurse in a position of her, traumatized by her experience, only being able to repeat this single phrase. However, it is worth noting she mentions having been with "Laura" in the Black Lodge while speaking to Laura herself, meaning the warning she gives is actually aimed at the nurse who steals her ring, telling her to write it in her (the nurse's) diary. The shooting script indicates this statement is Annie trying to get through to the nurse. In this case, it is unclear how Laura was able to hear this message to the nurse in her dream without Annie still having some connection to the Black Lodge, thereby sending a warning back in time.
  • In The Secret History of Twin Peaks, Norma's parents are identified as Mr. and Mrs. Lindstrom, whom both died before the events of the show, despite the appearance of Vivian Smythe Niles in the show. It is currently unknown where the name Blackburn comes from, as the show seems to indicate that Norma and Annie had both of the same parents, although the latter shares no screen time with Vivian.
