[show]SPOILER: Although Episode 29 was the last of the television series, many scenes taking place after Episode 29 were originally filmed for the feature film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992). These scenes included the much-anticipated resolution to the series finale, revealing the fate of Annie Blackburn (who survives but is hospitalized) and Agent Cooper (whose soul remains trapped in the Black Lodge, with the Man from Another Place telling him that he will be there for several years). Due to running time, these scenes were cut, resulting in several main characters of the series not appearing in the film at all. As of 2007, David Lynch has been working with MK2 and New Line to put these scenes out on an upcoming DVD release.
