May I remind y'all that Smokie the Monster actually left Eko after he refused to confess, but Eko chased after Smokie.  Yes, Smokie did kill Eko, but Eko was chasing Smokie, so it may not have been Smokie's original intention to break Eko at that point.

Also, did you like that clicking noise that Smokie was making, like unto the other episodes, like when Walt appeared, etc.?  (I think the Walt apparition had the clickies, anyway.  At least one of the other "hallucinations" had it.)


If smokie had not intended to kill echo  it could have    * poofed*  at anytime and been gone

it does seem that Echos death was directly tied to his unwillingness to confess his sins and that smokie made a "judgement' about that decission

I agree it would have wisped away and the unwillingness to confess led to Eko's demise.  On by the way, this is a law nitpick, there is only one "e" in judgment.  :)

Not really, Echo chased after his brother...it hasn't been proved that Smokester can change into people...

There may be more than 1 Smokester come to think of it! Maybe a "communicator" and an "exterminator"...just a thought!

Tonight in chat, Linuses_Blanket did mention the cerebrus had three heads.  Are you going for something similar to that?

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?

Did anyone have close captioning on 1) when Eko was whispering to Locke and 2) when Ben was giving the eulogy?  Did the cc reveal anything?

Let me think..."you're next"...

I've got it!

It's so simple now...the island is actually the worlds most exculsive restaraunt and Smokester is the matre'de!  :D

...well, it's as good as some of the theories out there...

I had my CC on - and I didn't get anything from Eko or from Ben in the scenes in question.  My CC could be really cruddy though...it messed up some of the words other people said....

i had the impression that he told locke 'You're next' because he knew he had encountered smokie before.. then locke simply got his interpretation wrong...

Yeah - the whole "You're next" think has me a bit confused.  But I'm atleast glad that Locke actually told us what he said rather than just seeing the big LOST letters and making us wait!

I think that Smokey is some kind of technology run amuck and may think he's God.  This would fit in well with the 3-head thing... a "trinity"?

They are next to be judged not necessarily killed.
