Re: Season 3 was incredibly mean-spirited (spoilers)

The whole rationale based on Cooper having a hero complex has one huge weak point. Cooper did barely anything heroic out of his own nature alone. He was always put on that path by either the people who wanted to be saved by him, the FBI when it comes to Laura's case or the entities from the surreal...

And honestly, we don't even know IF that's the reason he does it -- the motivation is never really even hinted at, and all we can do is speculate.

Season 3 was incredibly mean-spirited (spoilers)

OK, let's recap: At the end of FWWM, Laura Palmer seems to have found peace, basically ascended to heaven or whatever you might call it.
