Was this a sign of things to come did the island know that John had to go to the island so therefore it would not let him take a chance at smoking.
I never saw that until you pointed it out. I love that you noticed that and made the connection you did! Isn't it interesting? Was it just a dramatic prop to show that they shouldn't do what they were doing or was that supposed to have a hidden meaning? I guess I'm voting for the hidden meaning!
But, following that train of thought, why would the island who allowed Christian to become Jacob's spokesman, not have protected Christian from alcohol in the same way? Or did it?
