That makes sense. It also fits with what we saw in this episode--Carl Rodd (Stanton) sees the dead boy's soul start to rise toward the sky and then it fades away when it starts to pass the power lines. Then it cuts to the telephone pole in the Fat Trout Trailer Park, which is basically Lynch saying: "Hey! Remember this symbol from the movie? It's gonna be important." The trailer park is also where Chet Desmond disappeared.
Was the dead boy's soul intercepted?
IIRC, in FWWM the Man from Another Place talks about electricity during the demon meeting scene, which is packed with clues about the Black Lodge and its residents. I think there's a recurring motif of electrical noises in the film (also, the TV static). We've got power lines as a recurring symbol. Dale returned to the physical world via an electrical outlet. I think electricity is a key part of this mythos. Seems to be a mode of transport for the demons.
