WHAT AN EPISODE. WOW. SO DID COOPER FINALLY WAKE HIMSELF UP WITH ELECTROCUTION????
I can't believe they turned Jeffries into a Dalek. I audibly snorted but I love it.
I think Ruby might be Laura. Her scream in the middle of the Roadhouse was very similar to Laura's screams in FWWM. Plus, I imagine the way those men were treating her would "bring back some memories"
Bonus FWWM detail in that scene: the saw from the Deer Meadow Sheriff's Department was hanging over Ruby's booth in the Roadhouse. I only noticed because I just rewatched FWWM and I always found that set decoration puzzling.
Speaking of FWWM, I find it totally plausible that Coop in that FWWM FBI scene was Dopplecoop. It might have even been Dopplecoop for the whole movie. When I first watched it, some time after I watched the series, I thought that the Cooper character seemed off and too different from his character in the TV series... a friend and I actually had a whole argument about it.
So, there might be something to the idea that Jeffries would say "You ARE Cooper" to Dopplecoop. Maybe Dopplecoop is the only Cooper Jeffries knows.
Finally, when Norma mentioned her family, all I could think was HOW'S ANNIE??????? With all those hints about supporting her family financially, perhaps we'll soon find out...
