I want to know why  Cooper would have a dream/vision of Laura's mom running
down the stairs. Why is this relevent? If it is, then how would he see it
unless Laura's mom herself is sending him this message? That makes sense
because we know she is psychic becasue she jumped when the guy in the
woods reached for the necklace. (Others assume that her vision of Killer Bob
was a vision, but maybe she actually saw him once.)
