Achalli’s Lemonade, Smokey’s File In A Cake, And Nemesis’ Reunion
I’ve been against the idea, now fact, that Nemesis/Flocke/Smokey are the same thing. I now have to, no matter how much I dislike the idea, deal with it and work with that idea. For a couple of days now I’ve been pondering the situation looking for a way to at least make the fact a little more palatable to me; making lemonade from lemons as it where.
At some point Nemesis was imprisoned within the circle of ash where the cabin is eventually built. Now hold on some of you are saying, if Smokey and Nemesis are the same being, how is it that we see Smokey running around the Island when he’s supposed to be trapped in the cabin? My answer, only Nemesis’ mind was imprisoned in the cabin. Smokey, his ‘body,’ was left roaming the Island. As one entity Nemesis is formamible and able to hold a manefestation for a long time. Seperately, Smokey can only manefest an apparition for a short period of time. Although separated from his body, Nemesis still has some rudimentary control of Smokey and able to telepathically use Smokey to search for a suitable candidates to use to escape and hide in. But the Other’s keep getting rid of anyone who comes to the Island.
Then one day Nemesis’ salvation drops from the sky. Until the day that Oceanic 815 crashes the Others have been able to prevent any one else from being able to help Nemesis. But those groups were small and manageable. But not 815. Not only that but Nemesis finds a person who he can use to hide in, escape in, and then use to merge his physical body with his mental essence. That is where Locke comes in. Locke is in essesnce the file hidden in the cake given to the prisoner.
Nemesis then lurked inside of Locke even after his death until the body was returned to the Island. At that point he called out to his own body (Smokey ) and was reunited. Nemesis can now hold a form for as long as he wishes. He had to wait until Locke was dead because Locke’s consciousness was holding him in check.
This scenario is how I reconcile the fact that Nemesis and Smokey are the same. It is my lemonade as it were. I hope you enjoy it.
