That "thing" behind BOBCoop's hair

Something that isn't rational thinking gets me everytime i see that hair grip he has. It's clearly useless in its duty and it might be something else than a hair grip.

Except for some relation with the chip in Buenos Aires and the pendant circle Audrey is wearing, i don't have elaborate theories about that, i'm just drawn to that "thing".

Anybody else payed attention to it?

There's nothing quite like urinating out in the open air

Coop's old FBI badge?

Well, not beyond thinking, "That's a bit daft", no.  When my hair was long - and on the occasions I had to tie it back - I'd never use anything like that.  Nor, I hasten to add, an Alice band, beloved of certain soccer players.

Now my hair is short I don't have that problem, plus I'm not always eating me hair on windy days.

I think the intention is to show Mr C is a serious badass who doesn't give a monkey's what anyone thinks about his hair, but they better watch their step if they start making fun.

I've been making fun of it.  So shiny and gold and ridiculous. Interestingly enough, in the scene at the "motel"/convenience store, it was the only bright colorful thing there.   So worthy of being ridiculed.

I always got a Native American vibe from it. Knowing the mythology of the show, I think this is the intended purpose. It connects him with the Native American mythology of the lodges and just capitalizes on the fact that he's a lodge entity. In my opinion.

Or perhaps it is made out of a golden pearl of a manufactured, now dissolved doppelganger.

Some great ideas here! Though I didn't see the pin as gold but as iron-silver... another failure of my tiny screen?

I have medium-long hair and my elastic thingies are indeed useful to keep it out of my face - and mine is curly and much less manageable.

The first time I saw it, I thought of the strips of lead that Napoleonic soldiers used to close their braids or queues. It's easy because lead is so pliable and yet heavy enough to stay in place. Or maybe my fellow re-enactors were full of cr*p.

But lead would have an interesting significance from an Alchemic point of view. I know almost nothing about Alchemy, but isn't turning lead into GOLD an important part of it?

P.S. I hope BOB doesn't come tonight.

It hasn't been the same little clasp every time we've seen him has it?

I haven't really looked too closely at his hair clip, 'cos I tend to get distracted by his hair - it's the texture that's so odd.  It doesn't move - like it's been lacquered & ironed into place.
I was standing behind a woman in a queue last week, and noticed that when the wind blew you could see a bare patch on the back of her head where the hair parted.  This got me thinking about what Mr C is hiding under that solid hair-do.  Does he have another face round the back...?

It's probably just as well that nobody spoke to me while all this was going on - I'm surprised that I actually manage to order the right food & drinks!

You didn't see Sarah's face transposed over the bare patch?

I figured his hair didn't move around much because it was so dirty.  

The idea of another face - or even a third eye - is interesting, though.

Lol, I was trying not to stare while at the same time squint at it in case it turned into Josie!  😉
