Smokey can be in more than one place at once
When Smokey posed as Richard’s wife in the Black Rock, he also managed to cast shadows and make sounds that appeared to come from outside the ship. This seems to indicate that Smokey can be in more than one place at once. This also reminds me a bit of how Flocke disappeared behind a pillar in the statue and Smokey showed up from outside the statue. I’m not saying it must have huge implications, but this is definitely how things seem to me.
