Dale Cooper driving

Dale Cooper (our Dale Cooper) is seen driving a car at night in the following promo for the show's return (at the 50 second mark):  

This promo's been out since before the series' first episode aired. so at that time it seemed pretty insignificant. Dale Cooper driving a car. Big whoop.

Of course, 11 episodes in, we know that our Dale Cooper is still a gibbering idiot (for the most part), incapable of driving a car (from what we've seen, anyway). And Bad Cooper doesn't look anything like Good Cooper.

So, any bets on when we'll see this scene? Episode 18? Before? God, I hope it's before. My theory is that Good Dale snaps out of his Dougie funk, hops in a car, and drives to Twin Peaks (though that would be a long drive from Las Vegas). It could just be when he's already back in Twin Peaks. This all assumes he makes it back there. though it would be kinda weird if he didn't. That does beg the question: Assuming Dale Cooper makes it back to Twin Peaks, how does he so? Plane? Train? Automobile? Magic portal?

Then again, that clip could be Bad Coop, disguised as Dale. Wouldn't that be something?

The eyes look like Dale. They don't have that extra dark.

Good call. Hadn't noticed that.

They look Dale, and someone is driving behind him, maybe it happens in the last episode?

I'm sorry but at this point if DougieCoop's mode of transportation to Twin Peaks doesn't somehow involve Carl and his magic van whistle, I'm going to feel completely taken advantage of.

I feel you kdawg.  But there is no way that bus is making down to Vegas and back.  Not even Lynch's universe can make that happen.

This brings me to a big question and maybe I should post this on the q&a thread but here you go...

What does the FBI believe cooper did after the events of the original twin peaks? So far we have no details at all. 

After he left the hospital, we don't know anything. What do Cole and Albert think he did with his life in the past 25 years? Did he do any FBI work? Did he retire? Did he disappear "on assignment?"

I feel that this is a huge major plothole that needs resolving. Here's why. 

If Coop does get his faculties back, Cole in all good conscience isn't going to just say "hi welcome back, what you wanna do?". For national security reasons he will need to be debriefed and then determined whether he's an enemy of the state. Unless of course, the image we see of Coop driving is him going incognito, outside FBI jurisdiction. 

I just find it weird that as viewers, we still haven't heard Cole and Rosenfield discuss Coops supposed activities following the events of the original series. It's a huge black hole!

His arrest sheet shows "Suspect in multiple crimes", which I guess is the most we'll get unless it's important to the story.

Let's just say that I imagine James Hurley touring around in one with his guitar and is mike, singing songs to whomever will listen each night.

Ah yes, that wanker; the man who put the "hurl" in Hurley.

I guess so. But we've had no discussion between Cole and Rosenfield about what prompted Coop to turn bad. Not even a "I visited him after the Laura case". Maybe I just assume they were more than colleagues and good friends.

I so very much want this to be Dale. After last episode and the cherry pie revelation and the tease of " Let's Rock " as episode 12 title... my hopes are high that Dale's "recovery" will accelerate. I'm assuming that Dougie's fingerprints the detective Fusco's took will come into play this next episode as well.

I have wondered this very same thing, especially since he still seems to have FBi equipment and login access as seen when he was scoping out the prison blue prints.

When they visit him in the prison, there's a lot of "old friend" and "been a long time" and whatnot. But no "WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN?" or "what happened to you?"

Perhaps they have been tracking his nefarious deeds and have been well aware of his whereabouts.  It seemed to me like it was still rather un-histrionic for what I envisioned would be quite a dramatic reunion.

Definitely a black hole.
