When we see Laura's corpse disappear from the waterfront, are most people interpreting that as Coop saved her life and she wasn't killed? So, she is still part of that "reality"? Or, is she gone from that reality, period -- and dropped into this Carrie Page alter-ego/skewed universe? Or, is the general consensus that there are multiple realities pushing against one and other here?
Not sure I've wrapped my head around what her corpse disappearing means in terms of where she is existing at that point.
My assumption was that everything in Season 1+2 always happened. Laura was always murdered. When Coop "saved" her, the original timeline remains intact in history but a sort of Timeline 2 where Laura lives was generated. But in this new timeline, Laura isn't living happily ever after in the future. She was whisked away by otherworldly forces and send to another alternate reality where Richard/Linda reside.
One thing I'm still really confused about tho is "where/when" was Cooper when he and Diane were were driving down the road but hadn't reached 430 miles? Had Cooper "returned" to the same time where he and Freddie previously killed BOB at the Sheriff station? And Laura still didn't exist in this future despite his actions in 1989 (not sure if this was still the timeline where people still believed she was murdered).
