Maybe John is the one who was in change of protecting the Island and it scared him. I know that this is not making scence. But it would explaine his look when John choose the knife. I was also wondering about the Book. Book of Laws could it be more like the Rule Book when Ben said he changed the rules? I found it strange the comic book was titled "HIDDEN ISLAND" seeing how that is what the island is. Does john ever remember this? I don't know but this is just something i started to think about today sorry if you think it's stupid. I i keep thinking aobut it.
To be honest. John should remember that. He is old enough at that age to remember it later as "the strange man with his strange stuff where I had to chose one from". That is why I don't understand why we never had a flash back of the contact between john and Richard earlier in the series.
I mean, Lock met Richard already on the Island. Richard gave him the files of the Con-man= the one that stole his kidney and the one that made that the parents of Sawyer ended up dead. So he saw Richard but he didn't recognize him. He didn't had a face like "he I know you". I think that is strange as Richard his face never changes in times. So maybe John lost all his memories when he was thrown from the building? I don't know.
When Richard was visiting Lock with his items, john must have had nearly the same age as Ben when he sees Richard the first time on the Island.
Aren't John and Ben nearly the same age? And both suffered from not having a caring mother and father.
