There's no reason for Cooper to interpret the Giant's statement
correctly and run over to the Palmer house and save Maddy at the last
minute.  He's never met her; he doesn't know that she looks like Laura;
he doesn't even know that the Palmers have a house guest.  He *might*
eventually correctly interpret Mike's statement that only the gifted and
the damned can see Bob, and conclude that Leland must be damned (he's
obviously not gifted), but I sincerely doubt that he's going to do that
right away.  

There's also a lot of evidence in the diary that suggests that Bob is
either Ben Horne or Leland, so he's probably on to Leland as soon as he
realizes he was wrong about Ben.  Whether he'll trust his intuitions
about this after screwing up so badly on Ben, I don't know.

I don't know if anyone's mentioned that Austin Jack Lynch's statement in
French about being a lonely soul matched Harold Smith's exactly.  This
implies that Harold was killed by the magician next door; he didn't
commit suicide out of depression at being invaded by Donna.  Perhaps she
inadvertently gave them access to Harold, which would explain why they
referred her to him in the first place.
