Seperating the man from the Smoke.
This thought came to me when I was reading Joe’s weekly novella and I posted it there but thought it needed it’s own post. Not sure what made this click for me or if it’s right. Suppose when Smokie is on a rampage you circle the host body with ash then Smokie can’t back inside of it. Not sure how a host body gets picked. We haven’t seen what happens to John’s likeness when the Smoke Monster is around. If MIB is as long lived as Jacob he could have been sitting in that cabin for a hundred years for all we know. WithÂ MIB Â still being alive (at least in spirit form)Â Smokie couldn’t become corporeal in a permanent way until the circle was broken and the spirit or old, impotent body of MIB went byebye.Â I know there are alot of holes in this but it just came to me.
Has anyone read Anne Rice’s book “The Witching Hour”? In it a spirit inhabits a fetus when it is still in the womb and becomes alive. My thought is something like this but without the baby.
