Make sure you re(?)watch Fire Walk With Me as well (well, provided your daughter isn't five years old or something). That's what I did. (Don't get the hate for it at the time. It really told the story of a girl who senses her number's up and tentatively embraces oblivion brilliantly). If you're one of those dot-connecting cats, well it seems like a ton of those dots are contained in that movie. The Blue Rose from FWWM is mentioned a lot in the new one. My suspicion is it's a macguffin that has something to do with the German folklore, Die Blaue Blume/The Blue Flower- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_flower. "It stands for the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable" would be a pretty good summation of Lynch's entire career.

Going straight from the old series to the new one and seeing the heartrending scene of The Log Lady giving it her all, and launching the whole mystery, whilst fully aware that she was weeks away from a permanent move to The White Lodge, will be a huge emotional gut-punch.
