Let's have a look on the new opening credits from The Return.
The original credits were much longer, and now, Lynch-Frost-Dunham choose to show just two places.
First, one place we never saw in the old credits. A place in the mountains, with concrete, fences... are we seing Major Briggs secret base? I am thinking of that since Part 1, because when Part 1 was aired I had just finished The Secret History of Twin Peaks where we discover that Major Briggs had such a military base in the mountains of Twin Peaks.
The second place we see in the opening credits: Falls, probably the Great Northern Falls. In The Secret History, Chief Joseph went through a tunnel were water had disappeared, and then the falls appeared again. In the opening credits, the falls disolve into images of the Lodge and red drapes. Are the falls another Path to the Lodge, to the White Lodge, maybe? Or at least will they be important in the new season?
Of course, everything stars with Laura, because "Laura is the one". She is appearing in the sky like an angel. The sun makes a golden circle on her face, reminiscent of Part 8 golden orb with Laura's face. That circle on her eye reminds also all the eyes wounded in The Return.
Note that in Part 1 only, we saw the factory that we used to see in the old credits (is that the Mill? I think not). We will discover in Part 9 that this factory is in fact in front of the Sheriff Station.
