I can't recall any of your revelations being ill-informed or intentionally misleading.

Also being familiar with (and speaking to) the behind the scenes struggles with Little Mike, I share your sense of vindication that comes with this script screenshot, while also being frustratingly reminded of what could have been if the fella had just accepted any the help offered him and stayed on his meds. Meh.

Now I am curious what the original plans were for Philip Gerard -- maybe he was only supposed to appear at the end of ep. 17, where he recites his poem and guides Cooper to Philip Jeffries?

I was actually thinking the same thing.
"Dougie is COOPER? How the Hell is this!?"

That's what I've thought for a while. Just a big reveal of MIKE with the poem, and then leading Coop to Jeffries.

Bingo. That is correct, those couple of scenes.

Again, the idea of LMfAP and Mike/PMG simply rereading old lines / recreating old scenes seems way too fan service-y to me. If that was indeed the original plan, I’m glad external circumstances caused Lynch to have to adapt. What we got was much more interesting.

I think maybe the original idea was an unnerving symmetry. This is done also in The Missing Pieces - the trio of scenes where LMFAP repeats the line of returning home.

But I'm glad we got what we did, too. Mike's repetition of his Fire Walk With Me poem is, and this is the real risk of the idea of repeating, intentional or otherwise, just not at all as effective as the original reading.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.

Yeah I got a similar impression -- the repetition of the Lodge dialogue was primarily to further the notion that time is looping there. I personally didn't get a fan service vibe from it, but I wouldn't fault anyone who took it that way.

But yeah, I will say that Mike's repetition of the poem in part 17 isn't as chilling as in the original series. In general Al Strobel's performance in S3 lacks the intensity that he brought to the role(s) in the original run. Instead he seems to be mimicking Michael J. Anderson's somewhat relaxed demeanor as The Man From Another Place, albeit with a perpetually cross facial expression.

But that weird strobe effect on his smiling face in part 17 was very unnerving. I've wondered how that sequence might feel with Joan Chen making a surprise appearance and delivering Cooper to Phillip Jeffries, but I do like how Cooper finding a poetry reading MIKE in a basement in 2015 makes his initial dream seem all the more prescient.

Well since TMFAP would've been in most of Gerard's scenes, his role certainly wouldn't have been repetitive, as there was a lot of new material there for that character, which later became Gerard. The original couple of scenes written for Gerard do give a similar vibe of Audrey or Donna's original stories, which feel a bit "tacked on," as I believe Sherilyn complained about at one point.
