Dougie "playing catch"

I DO think that Dale walking up is a thing, and that it will happen (would Mike be calling him to wake up, and protecting him if it couldn't happen.). I love that it isn't happening in any of the ways that our understanding of conventional television narrative leads us to. 

It will be great to see him again (keeping in mind that we HAVE seen him in TPTR, right up to the moment he went through giant electric socket #3). 

I do hope it is prior to the last 10seconds of part 18, but whatever...

I AM the FBI.

Cooper can only become Cooper again if the two Coopers merge.

Ask yourself: why does Mr. C go through all of this hassle to get Coop killed? He is a pretty efficient killer himself. It's because he CAN'T kill him by himself.

Even if they get close enough to each other, I suspect fireworks or some black magic happening. 

Like when Mike sensed immediatly when Bob was around... 

It sounds plausible, but where have we seen any such merger before? Dale Cooper is the way he is because the Mr C interfered with the swap, creating a Dougie to return to the lodge instead of himself. I don't think Mr C planned on having a catatonic  Dale arrive in Buckhorn. I think he was supposed to be killed along the way.

It is possible that Dale has to return to the Red Room and do the exchange all over again to get his faculties back. This time maybe Mike and the arm will be ready to avoid "tricks."

Funny thing is, when the scene began, I thought to myself "aw shit, we're about to have 9 minutes of Sonny Jim throwing a ball while Cooper stares into the middle distance".  The fact that it cut away so quickly actually made me laugh out loud.

Exactly.  That timing was perfect.  You've got to give SJ points for persistence, what a good kid!

WAS this merely a throw-away scene, intended to amuse and/or exasperate?

 

My first thought was "one more thing interned to remind him of his past (throwing balls at bottles). THEN I thought it might be significant that SONNY JIM was pushing him out the door to engage in this activity, me believing, as I do, that Sonny Jim is something other than "real", and may be trying to help him remember.

The ball hits Dougie. And that's IT!

Anyone think this scene is anything more than another "WTF" moment part 12?

I chalk it up along with the french girl scene as being 100% worthless.

I hardly think that portraying Dougie/Cooper showing a trait that discerns between innocence and violence is worthless. This very briefly and humorously introduces a potential physical threat to him which he completely fails to respond to because the intention behind Sonny-Jim's baseball lob was not spurned by malice. This scene shows that we still don't have Dale back to normal, and he's also not tearing the skin off his son's hand.

I think people read far too much into these scenes.

Others, perhaps, read far too little.  Just enjoy it while we have the chance.

That's it, imo.
