I've seen a lot of people speculating on why Leland killed
all those people, with the emphasis being on devious plots etc.
I think it's much simpler. He got pissed, & when he gets angry,
BOB takes over. when he gets ANY impulse to do something socially
unacceptable (read 'evil' not 'weird') BOB takes over. When Leland
felt sexually attracted to his own daughter, BOB takes over 'cause
Leland can't handle it. When Leland gets suspicious & follows Laura
out to the cabin, he becomes irate & BOB takes over. When Maddy,
who has been what Leland wanted Laura to be, ie sweet, says she's
leaving, Leland is resentful & BOB takes over. Since we don't know
the details of the Banks murder, we can make up a scenario to fit
any theory we please. The letters, however, are not in the scope
of this posting.
