I know, Albert. Cooper is pretty much the last person in the world you'd expect to be so depressed, right? (Always feels weird, writing him like that - I'm so used to the man's perpetual good mood...)

(But judging by what Coop tells Annie in Twin Peaks, it does seem like he went through dark times after Caroline's murder.)

well, its actually not that far off from how Coop is. just because he was very peppy in the show doesn't mean that he can't be sad because Coop has REALLY gone through some shit if you read his autobiography, lol. like, his mother died at age 16...which he WAS quite angry and depressed about (because who wouldn't be?) and a girl he cared about ALSO died at a young age when he was a teenager. Coop has been through a lot of shit, and most likely HAS dealt with some mental health problems, including depression. so, this is totally not OOC at all, hon. =)

Yeah, I've read the book! You're right, it's not OOC. It's just something we don't often get to see in the show - Coop's "dark side", so to speak. Which is one of the many things I love about Twin Peaks: Lynch & Frost managed to create a complex, three-dimensional main character who's been through "lots of shit", as you said, without making him the typical "tortured hero" -- you know, that brooding, silent, neurotic cop with lots of inner demons and a drinking problem. =D

I just love that Cooper, having been through a lot, still manages to be so cheerful, lighthearted and enthusiastic about everything. It's such a welcome change from your average "TV cop" character!
