I feel like I know HIM
Wow, that's an interesting idea.
I was reading an interview with Eamon Farren today on Richard. I kept thinking about his portrayal as this solely evil creature, indicating he might be Mr.C's son, and then it occurred to me that Leland Palmer had been a host to BOB since he was a kid. Which means, to some extent, Laura is also BOB's child.
For a moment I thought about Richard maybe being Laura in this incarnation, but being extremely evil because he's not only BOB's child, but he was bred from the semen of a not-entirely-human host (the Doppelganger).
