I've left messages
During the Interview between Bad Coop and the FBI, Bad Coop looks at Albert and says 'I've left messages'. I wonder if Albert knows what he is referencing.
Good catch Steve. There is some history between Cooper's doppelganger and Albert, involving Philip Jeffries. And we know he's been messaging Diane, so the doppelganger is definately involved within the layers of the FBI.
In the next scene, when everything has a blue tint, Gordondon Cole & Albert continue talking about Philip Jeffries. Gordon Cole then has a strange look in his eye and says: ' Albert, Albert, Albert'. This echoes the 'Cooper, Cooper, Cooper' transmission from Season 2.
When Gordon says that, do you think that he is admonishing Albert for having helped Cooper (or who they believe may be Cooper) that led to an agent's death?
Or do you think there is something more sinister going on...something that the audience is hinted towards but not privy to. Something that Albert and Gordon know that we don't?
Albert also admits to giving Philip Jeffries info without Cole's knowledge. He then scuffs the concrete ground with his feet hurting Gordon Cole because of the high setting of his hearing aid. Almost as if he's trying to distract Cole away from the business of Cooper, Albert and Philip Jeffries.
When Mark Frost mentioned that Gordon Cole had a LOT of prior knowledge into darker mysteries that were discussed in the Secret History of Twin Peaks, I posted awhile ago about the possibility of Gordon having some sort of grand design/grand plan that he was working towards all his life, and that inolves Blue Rose cases of course. But I questioned whether Gordon's motives were pure, or if he may possibly turn out to be a sort of villain, trying to capture something, like the Experiment. But instead of Gordon, maybe Albert or Philip may be masterminding something big.
I love how Twin Peaks has gradually increased its universal span in it's storytelling. For me, it all started 26 some years ago when Major Briggs inexplicably knocked on Cooper's door at the Great Northern and "delivered the message". That was one of my favorite scenes in the original Twin Peaks as it hinted at something much much bigger at play.
Gordon enquires about Albert' health after the interview. He noticed a change in Albert's demeanour and is concerned.
