I wonder if he'll meet other older people who got trapped in the Lodge and couldn't get out and maybe they will tell mythical tales of someone who did get out, giving Cooper hope he might? (A bit like the Knight in Indy and the Last Crusade). Maybe there will be a conversation that explains where he is and why he can't get out? That would intro it to new viewers who didn't know the last 2 series. Just a thought. Many many maybes! Cannot wait to see!
Oh, it would be very interesting if there actually was some other normal person (someone new) walking around and Cooper could interact with him/her.
What if Philip Gerard was actually his doppelganger and we get to see the real Philip Gerard inside the Lodge :O
What if this real Philip Gerard still has his arm intact? Cooper finds him as an old person wandering around the Lodge. Maybe he really is the person seen in the trailer walking with Cooper (he looks a bit like Al Strobel but seems to have his left arm).
OOOOOOH! Gerard found the Lodge before losing his arm. Got trapped inside. His doppelganger got out, perhaps possessed by the Little Man (maybe called Mike as he was in the script of FWWM).
Doppelganger-Gerard himself cut his arm off or in some way the real Gerard was able to get in control of the doppelganger and took off the arm so that Doppelganger-Gerard was able to get rid of at least part of the evil forces controlling him. Maybe the Little Man is partly Mike. The evil part of Mike. And this was how Mike was able to purify himself. By getting Gerard's doppelganger on the loose and cutting the evil part out of him. This made the doppelganger more peaceful too. But the real Gerard is still trapped and he meets Cooper in the Lodge.
