I'm guessing that Duncan has interacted in person with Mr. C, and that is why only Ike got to see the photos. Not sure if Duncan would have seen Dougie on the LV local news....
This is what I'm all confused on now -- IS Mr C actually trying to kill Dougie/Coop? Obviously he wouldn't have wanted Dougie killed before he was getting called back to the Black Lodge. Dougie was needed for that. But these attempted hits on Dougie's life go back before Coop came out of the Lodge and assumed a place in Dougie's life, no?
Isn't the idea that Lorraine was originally hired to take care of the hit on Dougie (which I think most people have linked to the first Duncan Todd scene, where he tells Roger "She's got the job")? And then Ike killed her when she failed to deliver? Then Ike gets the call to kill Dougie (and presumably intended for ACTUAL Dougie, not for Dale Cooper).
Alternate possibility: in episode 5, when the failed hit on Dougie is reported to Lorraine, she rings up the weird wireless box in Argentina that presumably has something to do with Philip Jeffries.... SO: did Jeffries order the hit on Dougie Jones knowing that he was an imposter meant to get sucked into the lodge in place of Mr C....?
Something's not lining up here... at least according to the info given to the viewer so far. I still don't think it's clear the DoppelCoop is trying to kill Dougie/Coop. I mean it would make sense that he would WANT to (Mike: "One of you must die"). DoppelCoop seems pretty resilient all the same: throwing up the creamed corn, getting shot, and even having Bob extracted from him -- he's still rolling as usual.
