Philip Jeffries is an Agent of the FBI. He disappears two years prior to the events of Fire Walk with Me.
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with MeEdit
Jeffries suddenly appears out of an elevator in the Philadelphia office of the FBI, two years after his (equally sudden) disappearance. He hurries to the office of his former superior, Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole and starts raving in a loud and disturbed manner, referring at one stage to Special Agent Dale Cooper and yelling “Who do you think this is, there?”
Jeffries goes on to narrate in abstract fashion where he has been since his disappearance. He mentions names and incidents that are unfamiliar to those listening. His words are illustrated by the intrusion of a ghost transmission showing a small group of characters including The Man from Another Place and BOB in a series of strange rooms.
He disappears into thin air once again after announcing “I found something... and then there they were!”
Twin Peaks: The Missing PiecesEdit
Jeffries is in a hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina, when he suddenly disappears and reappears in the FBI office. Cole has Albert try to figure out how Jeffries got into the building, while Cooper, noticing the lights flickering, runs back out into the hallway. As Jeffries continues his rant, Cole tries to call for back-up. Jeffries looks at a nearby calendar and is shocked to realize it is February 1989. When Cole looks up from his intercom, Jeffries has vanished.
Jeffries re-emerged in Buenos Aires, apparently from a portal, scaring some hotel employees who had seen him vanish and then reappear.
The Secret History of Twin PeaksEdit
Jeffries went through FBI training with Gordon Cole at Quantico, where the two graduated as the top agents in 1968.
According to Tamara Preston's notes, last updated on August 28, 2016, Jeffries has not been seen since his mysterious reappearance in Philadelphia in 1989.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jeffries was played by English musician and actor David Bowie. Harry Goaz revealed in an interview that Bowie was scheduled to make a return appearance as Jeffries in the 2017 revival, but unfortunately passed away from cancer on January 10, 2016, before he could film his scenes.
