Does Smokey know?
When Ben goes to be judged we (nearly) all assume that it is Smokey judging Ben. What if it’s not and it’s Flocke thats judging him? or giving the illusion it’s Smokey?
Could this be another part of the loophole? that Flocke is able to use the body of Smokey aswell for his own means?.
Another idea i’ve had is what if Smokey doesn’t know that Locke’s body is being used? I mean maybe Smokey thinks that it’s really John and that is why Alex appears to tell Ben to do exactly as Locke tells him to, thinking that it’s John come back to set things straight. Even Smokey has been fooled.
Would the our real John Locke harm Jacob? IMO i don’t think he would as he has the island’s best interests which as far as we know is what Jacob wants aswel.
