Locke said  Echo told him  'Were next "  i know it is nitpicky  but it does make a difference

I think you can read too much into this. Locke stated that "We're next", but he heard it from Eko. Thus Eko most likely said "You're next" or "You're all next" or something like that. Could mean Locke, could mean all of them, could mean some of them, could be the mumblings of a dying man. Have to wait for the official transcript to see if Eko's mumblings are on there or not.

I think it is more that the other Survivors are next to be judged, not killed.

Eko wouldn't confess to doing anything he did to help people.
Does anyone really think that he was going to sell the vaccine? That was a trap for those
guys to come back and for Eko to kill them. He planned that. He gave the vaccine to the village, but he also caused them to loose a church.

Did anyone catch that Locke say Light when he looked at Smokie, but Eko saw black?

I totally agree with BRBob about the judgment part and not meaning death exactly... And I think I wrote about Eko and Locke possibly not seeing eye-to-eye (or not talking about the same thing) about what they saw in another thread... gotta go find it...

RIP Mr. Echo.

Even though everyone was asking for Eko to confess his sins, he refused to do it. THis had to be why eko was killed.


But he did repent! There were a few different times..I won't go thru the whole thing but I've posted my thoughts about this in a different thread, I'll find it and edit my post here.


Repentance

The key here is that he did not repent when smokie demanded it. Right or wrong smokie was judging him and smokie did not like eko's response.

I just don't agree that "smokie" is someone that can judge character and when a person has had true confession in their heart and mind. I can't firgure out this THING, but I think it is given too much credit.

I think it is to do with judgement and that is what they mean by you're next, rather than next to die.

I also think that Smokie is somehow controlled by the others but not sure how. I had a look on another site where they have broken the audio down into each channel and made transcripts of what is said.

The first time that smokie was around in the pilot the transcript was:

(Monster at the Beach)
-----
CENTER CHANNEL:
"You aren't joking" (1 sec)
"What a lousy thing..." (2 sec)
"I don't care what we do to them" (5 sec)
"Whatever we do we best do it ('fast' or 'right')" (8 sec)
"We can undo this" (14 sec)
"Bring enough men to do it right" (18 sec)
"How many do you want us to do it with" (20 sec)
"Twenty-seven" or "Tough to say" (21 sec)
"New idea" (sped up; 23 sec)
"Now you're just winging it" (23 sec)
"We don't have time for loose ends" (25 sec)
-----
LEFT & RIGHT CHANNELS:
"You aren't joking" (1 sec)
"What a lousy thing to go through" (3 sec)
"They're ruining the plan" (5 sec)
"Crash victims" (8 sec)
"Maybe they didn't hear me" (8.5 sec)
"What do you want to do" (background; during horn sound; 10 sec)
"To them" (11 sec)
"You know crash victims... can't keep ('our' or 'them') secret" (13 sec)
"I ('wondered' or 'wanted') the same thing" (17 sec)
"Why are you asking what I think?" (20 sec)
"That's not what I was doing" (22 sec)


(Monster at the Cockpit)
-----
CENTER CHANNEL:
"We could've handled it" (3 sec)
"Their now an intruder" (4 sec)
"Tell them that we located it and they will be soon be going" (6 sec)
"What are you going to do" (9 sec)
"Will you get going" (11 sec)
"There's no telling when they'll leave" (13 sec)
"Do you know what to do with them if they don't leave" (14 sec)
"Do you remember what the plan was" (17 sec)
"Look, now they've found another one" (19 sec)
"Okay, stick to the plan" (20 sec)
"Alright, no sign of any problem... it's quiet" (24 sec)
"Stand ready" (27 sec)
"Go for control of the window, we'll cover you" (29 sec)
"Keep them from suspecting anything" (35 sec)
"And don't let anyone else to know we're here" (36 sec)
"They've already seen" (40 sec)
"Don't let them go free" (42 sec)
"Don't matter" (48 sec)
"Did you see the scared look on their faces" (48 sec)
"Okay, follow them" (56 sec)
"Make him run for his life" (61 sec)
"Keep running, keep... damn, he did get far enough" (66 sec)
Kate hides in the tree
"Bet that lightning bolt scared her" (88 sec)
"What we're gonna do is separate you" (91 sec)
"Do you like the way you left him to be eaten" (93 sec)
-----
LEFT & RIGHT CHANNELS:
"Tell me when you're ready" (1 sec)
"We could've handled it" (2 sec)
"They're now an intruder" (3 sec)
"They're not leaving" (4 sec)
"Before you..." (5 sec)
"Try and get to the tower..." (5.5 sec)
"You hearing me at all" (6 sec)
"Interference" (7 sec)
"Hello" (7.5 sec)
"Can you hear" (8 sec)
"There it is" (8.5 sec)
"I didn't hear anything" (very faint; 9 sec)
"Quiet" (10 sec)
"Look they helped their captain" (11 sec)
"Hurry it up" (13 sec)
"Let him see you... then try to grab him" (14 sec)
"Kill all of them" (26 sec)
"I told you the plan" (27 sec)
"Kill the pilot, chase them away" (55 sec)
"They really got after it" (77 sec)


From these, and the other transcripts, it sounds to me like the others watching the losties but if thats the case then I don't know why they needed to send Ethan and Goodwin. Just found it interesting - no transcripts of this epi are on there yet though.

Is is just me, or does Locke want to put fear into all the Losties minds... From what I've heard Eko was saying 'The Lord is my Shepard' The same prayer Eko and Charlie said together when they burnt the drugs plane.
The question is, why would Locke want to put fear into their minds? To convince them to go with them in a plot to save Jack, Kate and Sawyer? Or just a simple plot to make sure he is in control of the camp? Perhaps he just mis-heard him? :D

I'm not sure that Locke is that devious, IMHO

I didn't think Sun would shoot someone. I thought the Glass Ballerina clarified that anyone is capable of anything.
