Now that we are in the last season of Lost, I have am reflecting on moments involving the smoke monster (forgive me if these make no sense, it’s very early):
Perhaps NuLocke has always done favors for Ben, as Ben “called” him after Wydmore’s men killed Alex.
Smokey attempted to pull Locke down the hole back in the first season.
Smokey staring down Eko and appearing to back off, only to return and kill him later. Did Eko disappoint him?
Dharma (or the others) actually did a heck of a better job keeping Smokey out with their “fence” versus the stupid ash/powder the templers would pour on the ground.
Grabbing and changing the French party into crazies like Rousseau?
I’m also curious to know what other forms NuLocke was able to take. Claire sat with Christian very similarly to the way she welcomed NuLocke, though she hadn’t been hit too hard with the crazy stick. Is Christian another being? Or are there two representations of him? Does the name Christian Shepard mean what it sounds like? Does this mean the shack that Ben and Locke never had anything to do with Jacob in the first place and was all part of NuLocke, tricking Ben all along?
