Cooper Cooper was the message Briggs received at the listening post as recounted in the Frost book.
And now the connection has been made. On the print out from the messages Cooper Cooper. There are two Coopers and Briggs knew it back then.
In S2 there were 3 "Coopers" on the printout. In tonight's episode the third was seen torn off. Was the 3rd Cooper the original Dougie that got sucked back into the Red Room?
