  Agreed.  I haven't bothered to check whether he had handcuffs on earlier
  and somehow - off camera - removed them for that final shot, bit it seems
  unlikely.

  True.  But suppose you knew your patient was dying and you were really
  upset that she was.  You'd be performing standard CPR and when it failed
  to revive her, you might just increase the pressure and even go a bit 
  crazy and finally scream in despair at your failure.  Is it not
  possible that that's what BOB's doing?  I don't particularly buy in
  to this theory, but one of my roommates does, so I feel obliged to
  defend it a bit.
