Sarah Palmer did not die in the original. Her face etc are what I was referring to previously when I said there may be clues about whether she was the young lady in episode 8 who ended up with a bonus bedtime snack. I dont think there was anything in Fire Walk With Me that gave such hints about Sarah. This major plot angle in the new series is revisionist history really, and sadly does take something away from the original Palmer family story, the tragedy of Laura etc. Gives us new things to think about though! I was so very happy when the Fireman chose Andy to receive info and do his work. And that the Fireman has a name other than ??? or the giant. Frank Silva was the original Bob actor who died in 1995. They are crediting him because they use that still image of him, and archive footage flashback scenes (I forget what there actually is in the way of the latter though). Lynch wanted Bowie to be in it but he was too ill (not that they were told this at the time) and also someone apparently got to Bowie about the quality of the accent he used in Fire Walk with Me, so he requested that an actor with authentic accent overdub his stuff. I wont respond to your other questions because of spoiler risk.
