Subject: RS: Great Northern = Black Lodge (was Re: RS - speculations)

Remember the scene where the OAM "transfroms" into Mike as Cooper withholds
administering of the Halperidol (sp?) to Philip Gerard at the Sherrif's 
station. In this scene, Cooper asks Mike where Bob is now. Mike replies with
a "riddle:" [emphasis mine]

"A large house made of wood *surrounded by trees.* The house is filled with
many rooms each alike but occupied by different souls night after night."

Cooper says under his breath "The Great Northern Hotel." Could it also have
been a reference to the Black Lodge as Ann H. suggests?

Could the description "surrounded by trees" be a reference to the "circle
of trees" in the glyph? There are some subtle contradictions, however. The
riddle states that the rooms are occupied by *different* souls night after
night but it is apparent that Josie is trapped in the knob in one of the
GN rooms.
