Cooper is falling into non-existence, while Laura is being raised up in the lodge, which would therefore hint (if this reasoning makes sense), that it is the Fireman who actually whisked Laura away. With Cooper falling earlier, it was clear who was behind it.
But Laura ends up in Odessa? Why would the Fireman put her there?
Odessa as part of Cooper's Odyssey, at least Frost hinted of S3 as of Copper's odyssey back to town of Twin Peaks. But they (Fireman and Dido) did put her there, Laura's soul was incarnated there, at least according to that globe display we saw. Why was she whisked? Maybe she told Cooper something she shouldn't have or maybe she just had to incarnate for Cooper to achieve something. But how she was taken out of the lodge clearly looked like an action from "higher up". I need to rewatch it for sure.

We don’t actually see who opened the Jeffries door the second time (my hunch is it was the Great Northern 315 key again, but I have nothing to support that). That sequence is fascinating to me on a production level. Multiple people following the shooting at the time confirmed that the crew got to the Mt. Si Motel way later than anticipated (in the very early morning hours of the next day) to shoot the Dutchman’s/Red Diamond City Motel scenes. This also was seemingly the very last night of Washington shooting. Resultantly, a planned night shoot of Sarah in a Washington supermarket was scrapped (and was later shot in California during the day instead). There was also a rumor that they didn’t get all the planned shots at the Mt. Si Motel. Part 17 (when “original” Cooper visits the Dutchman’s) clearly doesn’t contain any actual footage shot at the location except for one static shot with no one in it. I’ve been wondering if they meant to shoot “original” Cooper’s Part 17 scene there after wrapping the Double and just didn’t have time? As it stands, the footage in Part 17 is Cooper and Gerard exiting a door, then a frozen POV shot of the motel, then that very dark shot of Cooper and Gerard walking beside a wall that is clearly NOT the Mt. Si Motel (this is the mysterious shot that fascinated so many of us when all we had to analyze was the promos). Then it cuts to Jeffries, and Cooper and Gerard emerging from darkness. We don’t see who opens the door, or how.
Of course, it’s interesting that Lynch even chose that location from FWWM to act as the Dutchman’s. And, to bring things full circle, the Tremond grandson of course pops up there in FWWM...
Yes, quite a place! As a coincidence, Bowie's "1. Outside" album, which is the one where "I'm deranged" comes from, also has a song called "Motel". It is a great concept album, and what also caught my attention there was another song called "Segue - Algeria Touchshriek" which had a particular lyric "I'm thinking of leasing the room above my shop". That whole album is a great listen.
