Hmm, that explains how Coop can SEE him, but does seeing him mean that you 
will automatically be possessed?  Remember that Laura resisted him--and 
Coop, who knows so well what BOB is, would undoubtedly do the same.   It 
just doesn't seem likely to me that he of all people would succumb.  
Perhaps Annie will be possessed and Coop will have to kill her to save 
others' lives--that would be appropriately noirish and grim!
