also where Windom stabbed him in ep 29
Been thinking of the injuries as applies to the Chakras for a while now. The stomach injury that Doppelcoop, Real Coop have from gunshots and the stomach injury BOB healed on Leland in FWWM would correspond with the sacral chakra -- pleasure.
Windom Earle stabbed both Dale and Caroline upward from just under the ribcage, Dale describes it very specifically when the first dead chessman is found. I think that corresponds with the solar plexus -- willpower. That fits how he attacked Coop in general, tearing at his resolve.
Major Briggs was decapitated, so was Ruth. Cut at the throat chakra -- communication. Both have their remains at the center of a mystery. Ruth was also shot like Phyllis, in the eye. (Corresponding to Gerard's glass eye?)
The recurring head injury, which was what killed Leland, and was an injury suffered by both Ben Horne and Doppelcoop in ep 29 was the third eye chakra (I can't be the first to notice that) and which corresponds to jntuition. The perception of the spirit realm. I think this is where Laura and Maddie suffered killing blows as well.
Or was Laura hit on top of the head? The crown chakra, which is the center of spirituality and enlightenment. When the Woodsman killed at the radio station, he held his victims by the top of the head. Did he send energy in through their crown chakras until they ruptured?
