So if he can't kill them himself, is the plan to let Richard blow up the plane with all the candidates on it? And Smokey probably won't be hurt one bit.
Edit: If this is Smokey's plan then Michael's ghost was right about not blowing up the plane. And if Richard kills a bunch of people in a failed attempt to get rid of Smokey, it will be very ironic and sad, and I mean sad for Richard. Because the reason he came to the island is that he killed someone trying to save someone else, and in all these years he hasn't learned a damn thing.
