Also the "respect" factor would be different for Frank since he seemingly has never had to deal with the FBI as Harry had to back in the day. From Frank's POV, the FBI probably doesn't need the details about the Log Lady's messages and the diary entries unless they specifically say they do.

I think he didn't mention it, because the key scene with Ben occurs after this phone call was placed chronologically.

"Is it future, or is it past?"

That is exactly what I was thinking as I was trying to fall asleep last night.  We are looking at this as a linear chain of events when clearly that is not the case.

No dreams of Monica Bellucci last night though.

By the way, I seem to remember Coop talked at least with Harry about the dreams with the Giant. If Andy is able to recall meeting the Giant/Fireman and not only what he saw in his vision that could be another link to Coop.

Also Gordon didn't tell the Vegas FBI office that Dougie's wife is named Jane, which would have helped them narrow down which of the "39 Douglas Joneses in the greater Las Vegas area" to contact.

Didn't he? I thought he did but it's entirely possible that I am mistaken.  I'll have to watch it again. I got so caught up in the agents freaky outburst that I lost sight of all the other details in that scene.

Why didn't Sheriff Truman tell Gordon about Cooper's key?  When he hung up I was yelling, "Tell him about the key." 

Maybe they don't know where the key came from. And even then, story-wise, the key was only needed to link TP to LV, and now that Cole is headed to LV and knows about Dougie, it's not as important.

(Plus, I have a vibe that Sheriff Truman is 'only there to help out while his brother is sick'... Maybe he didn't work in the force originally, and never did proper investigation work? I don't know.)

Gordon's mind must be preoccupied. He didn't ask Truman what the pages say, just basically "can't talk about it, but thank you very much."

Aren't we seeing a pattern with Gordon that suggests something more than preoccupation? After the long, drawn-out departure of the French lady, he showed no comprehension of the information Albert brought him about Diane's text messages, instead changing the subject. He also seemed unable to parse Lucy's response to his question, though she was talking at cross purposes with it. There are probably other examples.

Nope- that vital info was left out (I often want to pick up the phone to call folks on shows I am watching, but Good Communication would render the plots of most TV shows moot- watching shows that take place before the advent of cell phones particularly so).

One would hope (even given the questionable competence of the LV FBI office) that they will quickly realize that one particular Douglas Jones was just in the news as part of a very curious attempted murder, and that his wife was prominently featured in the TV coverage.

Gotta think that Sheriffin' is something more than a temp position, and Frank generally seems to know what he is doing (although, let's admit it- the TP Sheriff's department has never really gotten on top of the youth drug epidemic). To whatever extent it "counts", I think the Secret History says more about Frank's background in the profession.

Hi MJ,

But, then again, who has, MJ?

Yes you would think they would have seen the local news report where a certain Dougie Jones manhandled Ike the Spike.

Maybe it's the paper tossing scene all over again..? I hope not. I pray that LV's FBI is more competent than its local detectives. 😉

As I mentioned in another thread, Cole probably has someone on it.  Gordon the Director, not Gordon the Gopher.

My guess is, despite the failure of Twin Peaks characters to act in a rational manner, there will be a resolution of the Cooper/Dougie storyline.
