1) William Hastings says he doesn't have the coordinates as Ruth wrote them down. If that's the case, why would his secretary have them? Ray was trying to get them from his secretary correct? Or are these separate coordinates? One that Briggs is looking for and ones that helped him enter the 'dimension'?
2) Whoever grabbed William Hastings in the 'dimension', why would they ask for his wife's name? That part seemed unusual but I do remember Bad Cooper telling her she 'mimics' human behavior well.
I brought them up a few posts ago, trying to figure out the Hastings/Ruth/Secretary timeline.
1. Hastings/Ruth figure out the coordinates from some old government document.
2. They go to coordinates at appointed time and there's a portal, through which they meet The Major.
3. He asks them to get him some different coordinates from a secure government resource.
4. Hastings/Ruth get the coordinates. At some point during this process, the secretary gets the info too? (Ray says she knows what he knows?)
5. Ruth writes the coordinates down on her hand so she won't forget them.
6. They go back to the Portal and give the coordinates to Briggs whose body floats up (like??????) head then disappears from hearing the numbers.
7. While this is going on they are attacked "There were so many people there" (Woodsmen?) Ruth is killed (head pushed in by Woodsman hands?)
8. Hastings cradles her as she dies.
9. Hastings wakes up back in his bed. (Ruth's head/Briggs Body transported to *her* bed somehow).
I wonder if Hastings' return home was similar to Briggs' return after his trip to the White Lodge in the original series. He showed up in a WW1 flying ace outfit with both loss of time and displacement of time. I just can't quite understand why Briggs going to the White Lodge again (or his head anyway) would somehow lead to Ruth's death (and not Hastings too?)
Cooper didn't say she mimicked human behavior, he was basically telling her that she was soooo predictable. "You follow human nature perfectly." She turned on her husband. She immediately invited George over to bang while her husband was in the lockup. DoppleCoop kills her with George's gun. He comes over and finds her dead body...doesn't realize it was his gun, calls police...etc etc etc. There is the theory from weeks ago that the ripple in her head was a lodge denizen leaving her as she's shot, but I think that was just Lynch adding an affect to hide dodgy brain spattering FX?
It's funny thinking about how the whole Buckhorn SD plot would have made its own TV show though doesn't it?
School Principal and school librarian discover a mutual interest in the occult. Some unseen foreign guy (H.V.) collaborates with Hastings on a blog, and possibly even steers Hastings towards a discovery. On the surface Hastings and his wife seem like the perfect family, but secretly she's having an affair with her Lawyer. He knows about it, and doesn't hold back as the mutual attraction with Ruth grows. They make some discoveries. DoppleCoop arrives on the scene and starts banging Hastings' wife too. (...and ONE OTHER GUY he says to her in the jail scene). Ostensibly to keep tabs on her Husband's activities since he seems to be getting close to something. Hastings and Ruth have the breakthrough and open the portal. They see The Major who tells them where to find some other coordinates and how. They do the break-in and get the coordinates to the Major whose head floats off and then all hell breaks loose as the Woodsmen come and murder Ruth. Hastings wakes up in his bed. Ruth is found dead, later arrested...etc etc etc. Sounds like an exciting show. What happens in Season 2?
