When we first met Cooper (Coop), he
was one of the masked gunmen that took over the Metro Court. He
was named “Three” by hostage ringmaster, James Craig (later revealed to be
Jerry Jacks). Coop
was soon trapped in the safe with Maxie Jones. When his mask finally came
off, we could see that Coop was a young and handsome guy. Maxie was able to
break through Coop’s “tough guy” demeanor.
After the hostage crisis ended,
Maxie helped Coop get out of the hotel without being noticed. She even let
him hide at the Scorpio house. At that point, we could see that Coop was
sweet and well meaning. He wasn’t a bad guy; he was just a guy who made a bad
decision for money. Maxie got Coop a room at Kelly’s. Soon the
two became more than friends.
When it was revealed to
Sonny Corinthos that Coop was one of the gunmen,
he was brought in to Sonny. Coop
was forced to join the PCPD on Sonny’s orders. Maxie stole a copy of the
exam that Coop had to pass. He entered the academy at the top of the class.
Coop had become a very likeable
character. He was always there when he was needed. Coop was a true
friend to Logan, Lulu, and Maxie. He worried about Maxie’s self esteem
issues. He genuinely liked Maxie and tries to look out for her. Coop
always protected the people he cares about. He tried to
protect Lulu from Logan’s temper and his secrets. He helped out his old army
friend Cody, who had PTSD.
Later, Georgie suspected Coop of being the
Text Message Killer, so she had Spinelli investigate him. He was found dead
in his room, an apparent suicide. We found out later that Diego was the real
killer, but we never did find out who killed Cooper or if he really did
commit suicide (which seems unlikely).
