Behind the scenesEdit
Deer Meadow was deliberately made to be a more hostile parallel to the town of Twin Peaks.
Among the similarities between the two towns are:
|Deer Meadow||Twin Peaks||parallel|
|Teresa Banks||Laura Palmer||BOB's victim|
|Cable||Harry S. Truman||Town's sheriff|
|Chester Desmond||Dale Cooper||FBI Agent invesitgating the murder, reverse initials|
|Sam Stanley||Albert Rosenfield||FBI forensic agent|
|Giggling Secretary||Lucy Moran||Secretary at the Sheriff's department|
|Irene||Norma Jennings||Waitress at the diner|
|French Girl||Josie Packard||Foreign woman|
|Old Guy||Pete Martell||Man with the foreign woman|
|Carl Rodd||Ben Horne||Owner of a housing means location|
|Curious Woman||Log Lady||Same sweater|
|Chalfonts||Tremonds||Impersonated by the same spirit characters|
The geography is confusing, perhaps deliberately so; Cooper says in the Pilot that Teresa Banks' body was found "in a town in the Southwest corner of this state", where Twin Peaks is in the northeast corner ("...five miles south of the Canadian border, twelve miles west of the state line"). This is consistent with Chester Desmond flying into Portland, Oregon in Fire Walk with Me. However, The Secret History of Twin Peaks, while affirming that Deer Meadow is in Washington, also says that Deer Meadow is "one county to the west" of Twin Peaks, calling it a "nearby community."
