I can't seem to find anyone or any outlets comment on this, but the statue outside Dougie's office building appears to be of David Bowie, circa 1976. And it comes 'twixt the appearance of his co-star of that period (Candy Clarke, The Man Who Fell To Earth) and a scene set in Phillip country, Buenos Aires.

I'm pretty sure it was him.

Anyone grab a still featuring the statue?

Well spotted Haldeman. This statue looks almost EXACTLY like Bowie in the Man Who Fell  to Earth.

That would be pretty cool and I totally see it, but here's another POV of the statue which hardly resembles David Bowie at all.

I wonder what Coop's fascination with the statue is. Cant help but notice he keeps touching the shoes (which he lost in transit) when he came back into the real world. Thoughts??

Dale seems to actually have his memories but the trip back caused an amnesia.  I suspect this will be temporary...

I think the idea of "Case Files" and the statue of the man with a gun are reminding him of his past with the FBI.  That, with the coffee - Something with Jog his memory!  But what?

Someone posted this on Reddit, comparing early 80's Bowie with the statue.

Agent Jeffries in Moscow, 1976. 😉

Looks like Sheriff Harry Truman to me...

 Yeah, and he also repeats word 'agent' while talking to his boss

I agree there are definitely things that catch his attention, anything he's familiar with. Obviously his coffee addiction is still alive and well. And despite his infantile approach to nearly everything, he's still an investigative person just like he always has been. This new episode shows that he's desperately trying to break out of whatever he's locked into but completely lost. It's also not helpful that everyone around him can't see that he's clearly in trouble and just pushing him from place to place. (It says a lot about our modern society, quite honestly.)

There's something 'odd' about the statue - it reminded me of David Bowie/ Phillip Jeffries.
Someone with a gun should probably look like a soldier - but that doesn't... the pose is all wrong.  I keep thinking that there might be something going on like in Kurt Vonnegut's 'Sirens of Titan' where individuals pass through like comets.

I just saw this as it tweaking a connection with Cooper's real past as fighting on the side of the law... the shoes are black (the colour of the statue)... like the ones he left behind.

Doesn't the statue remind anyone of The Lone Ranger? Dale Cooper--the real, pre-Bob Cooper--is a lone ranger type--always does the right thing, and operates on a level by himself in many ways.  Or maybe I'm just old. . . .
