Thor Amli about Leland Palmer's summer up at Pearl Lakes as a little boy when he met BOB for the first time. "Do you want to play with fire, little boy?" It makes me wish The Return spent a little bit of time establishing some flashbacks to set up the conflict with BOB over the decades.
This short film also reminds me how completely different The Return has felt tonally from the classic Twin Peaks. Even this fan-made short film feels a little more similar to the tone of the original series, strangely. It makes me hold out hope that we get to see child Leland and maybe even child Laura in the series proper someday. There is some definite dramatic potential there in flashbacks, at least.
