Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before, but what if we are dealing with two seperate smoke monsters. Let me break it down for you:
– When the monster scans people and “judges” them, it makes a very distinct clicking noise.
– When it is killing someone, it makes heavy chain clanking noises, as well as the roar which we all are very familiar with.
– Since jacob was murdered we haven’t seen the scanning version of the smoke monster, only the killing one.
What if both jacob and MIB are smoke monsters, the only difference, is that it was jacobs job to judge, while MIB’s job was to kill whoever jacob didn’t need?
Since Jacob has been killed, we have only seen the MIB version of the smoke monster, could this be the reason?
