I am totally on board with this!
So obvious, yet so easy to dismiss or overlook.
Now, Smokie has a "two for one..."
Locke is acting on behalf of Smokey. And Ben will have to help.
Now for the logistics that King Nate mentioned...
Is he only one person at a time? Locke was off "finding rope" when Alex came in. So that would lead us to think, yes.
But Claire throws things off. Unless she was Judged, like Ben?
Maybe she was told to do whatever Christian wanted, no questions asked.
I really dig this!
