That the young boy walking with the young girl is actually Bob. It would be a neat trick, for sure, making us focus on the girl as it does. Perhaps the bug creature would get transferred into him through some sexual act? Anyway, I don't really have any theories of my own, I just found it interesting.
Well, if the boy is Leland Palmer as some (including myself) speculated, then yes. He is Bob several years after possession taking place.
I am not sure why the "bug creature" is perceived as evil. Or actually I do know. We are instinctively repulsed by insects, and particularly the idea of them crawling over our bodies, not to mention into our mouths. Does the conventional wisdom apply here though? There is no rational reason to believe whether that creature is good, evil or anything in between.
Just to clarify, my friend literally thought the boy was Bob...not Leland, but Bob, ie, young Frank Silva, a boy who would grow up to look like the Bob we know. I'm not saying it gels with whatever origin story we were already led to believe, but that's what my friend meant.
You mean the Robertson guy? who likes to flick matches at Leland up at the lake when he was a boy?
