My first reaction was also that it was a "D".  In reviewing the tape
in real time, it still looks like a "D" to me, but my freeze frame
was too grainy to confirm one way or another.

i'll buy this, simply becuase i don't want to believe that BOB is
spelling out a personalized license plate.

also, with regards to the ``Where, then, is the missing "E"?''
question, my first thought was of Jacques.  But then how would
Albert have missed the letter?  (given that Leland/Leland didn't
have motive or opportunity to do it, but maybe BOB/? did).
and the fact that it's the wedding ring finger and always with
females seems significant--maybe there's been another murder/
battery in some other part of the state (or Canada) that's yet
to be revealed?
