[[WMG: Killer BOB spent twenty years creating someone whom he could totally possess.]]
[[spoiler:BOB possessed Leland more than twenty years ago. In a sense -- a doubly-icky sense -- Laura Palmer was BOB's daughter. BOB was dead-set on possessing Laura, as though she was somehow different to anyone else in Twin Peaks he might possess. And Laura seemed to have a stronger connection to the Black Lodge than anyone else, save perhaps Cooper. Perhaps that connection was the result of being BOB's progeny, and it's what made her so desirable to BOB.]]

[[WMG: After leaving Twin Peaks, Cooper became the Mayor of [[Series/Portlandia Portland]] ]]
I mean, both cities are in the Pacific North West, we never find out the Mayor's name (only ever referred to as Mr. Mayor or Mayor) and he's a pretty eccentric guy kinda like Coop!

... but Cooper instead. At the end of Fire Walk With Me, [[spoiler: Cooper shows up next to Laura after her death, with a single hand placed on her shoulder.]] It was stated that once Laura found her angel again, the one meant to help her, she'd weep tears of joy (which she does [[spoiler: after meeting him again at the end of the movie]]). Who else has helped Laura the most (although postmortem) than Cooper, who solved her case, [[spoiler: warned her against taking the ring in her dream to keep her alive (granted it turns out be necessary in preventing BOB from possessing her, but Cooper still meant well)]], and [[spoiler: reassuring her in the Black Lodge, presumably guiding her to the White Lodge.]]

Laura, whom the plot revolves around revealing her widespread influence on the town and kick starts the series with her murder, and Cooper, who guides the viewer through the story, solves the case, and introduces even more supernatural elements using unorthodox detective methods such as reliance on dreams for clues and belief in the mystical. They are the only characters with books centered around their lives and are frequently subjected to the supernatural. BOB has been tormenting Laura since her childhood, and this is implied to be the case for Cooper and his mother in ''The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes''. Not to mention [[spoiler: they are both trapped within the Black Lodge by the end of the second season]].

While it's possible that BOB will start trying to act like normal Cooper immediately after the 'how's Annie' scene ends, but Harry should be able to hear BOB laughing maniacally and repeating 'how's Annie' to himself clearly enough to realize what's going on regardless.

[[WMG: The "Twin Peaks" part of the show and town's name represents the two most important character's to the plot]]

He once knew someone named Diane, possibly romantically, and/or as an actual assistant, but she is actually deceased, and his tapes are used purely for his own notes, not two-way communication. He addresses everything to Diane conversationally because he feels better doing it that way. This is why his notes include all sorts of job-irrelevant minutia about every little aspect of his daily experiences. Whether or not Dale is psychologically aware of the truth of this situation, or perhaps thinks Diane really is back at the office helping him, is unclear. Whether or not her spirit is helping him in dreams/in the various metaphysical realms he may or may not be traveling through is, also, unclear.

[[WMG:After the season 2 finale, Harry figured out that Cooper was possessed by BOB pretty much immediately.]]
He's encountered BOB before, knows Cooper very well (as far as we can tell, they are each other's closest friends), and Possessed!Coop is pretty clearly not himself, making poor at best attempts to act normal, at least in the few moments we see of him.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Agent Cooper is actually D.B. Cooper]]

*Cooper's full name is actually Dale Bartholomew Cooper. While Creator/DavidLynch did this intentionally as an allusion, there could be a possibility that the two men are the same person. Also, D.B. Cooper had parachuted out of the plane he hijacked over the Pacific Northwest, so it can be assumed that maybe he landed near Twin Peaks? The report regarding the hijacking case described a man who fit a description similar to that of Agent Cooper in the series. It is also implied throughout the series that Coop has a darker side than we're shown as an audience, and had the show continued, it probably would have explored that. This is David Lynch, after all, so the possibility of the two being the same person is definitely there.
