cooper and phyllis were seeing each other? i never put two and two together until hastings mentioned that there was "maybe somebody else" or something along those lines, in addition to phyllis' affair with george.Spoiler:duncan is a tulpa... jeez, it's almost like cooper went around populating the world with tulpas in preparation for his "escape plan"...
POSSIBLE PLOT HOLE: shouldn't the FBI have found footage of cooper appearing in the glass box?? alongside the footage of the experiment and cooper/weird monk guy?
overall: this story is much more complex than i gave it credit for on the first watch. what an enormous puzzle.
I never remember it being revealed Duncan is a tulpa. Where did you get that?
oh. i guess it's never stated outright. at the very least, cooper's, what, blackmailing him, or holding something over his head?
later in the season,
same with roger; his "blood echo" mirrors that of phyllis in the premiere, and phyllis was definitely a tulpa, right? ("you mimic human behavior perfectly")
