*The Black Lodge*
Who are the spirit entities that reside within the Lodges?
We will begin with the Black Lodge.
Mike and Bob (who is pictured at the top of this page) are two spirit entities that dwell in this Lodge. These evil beings try to claim many souls to their Lodge, especially innocent good souls. The spirits require a human host so they can feed upon fear and evil pastimes. They would possess their hosts, pursue dark pleasures and go on killing sprees.
Bob was the spirit inside Leland Palmer.When Leland was a young boy, he met Bob who used to flick matches at him, chanting "You want to play with fire, little boy." Leland said "yes", and let Bob in. Bob was able to possess his host whenever he pleased.
However, he did not remain in this human form at all times.He would leave and take the form of an owl. Remember the saying "The Owls are not what they seem."
Mike was a Black Lodge spirit-entity who was once Bob's partner.His host is a shoe-seller called Phillip Gerard. Bob and Mike spent some time together, killing for pleasure and power. However, Mike was purified and changed when he saw the face of God. (Not too sure, how, when or why, but I'll follow that up.) The two entities had "Fire Walk With Me" tattooed on their left arms. An evil tattoo representing the Black Lodge. Mike had his entire arm cut off. He remained close to Phillip Gerard, inhabiting him from time to time to watch over Bob and to prevent his murderous ways. He uses the drug Haloperidol to prevent Bob from possessing him and also, because of the amputation, to remain as Phillip Gerard when he is inhabiting him. He cannot belong to the White Lodge, unfortunately.
My confusion here is that Mike is always seen as the same person, obviously Phillip Gerard, or perhaps not. Mike cut off his arm, not Gerard, yet Bob is always seen as himself and also of the people he has inhabited.
I think there must be so much more to be added to the Black Lodge.
