Actor Michael Horse, who plays Deputy Hawk in the original series, can be heard throughout these shots discussing the ‘holy places up here, a lot of sacred places’ and how a ‘location sometimes becomes a character.’ He continues by describing the experience ‘like being in a moving painting.’ Fans also get a short glimpse of the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign before the whole shot goes blurry and the face of an unidentified man covers the screen. In true ‘Twin Peaks’ fashion, fans will be left with little to go on from the trailer to draw their conclusions.
