Terry O’Quinn talks about his character Locke and what he calls “the new embodiment of Locke.” He doesn’t call him “not” Locke or “fake” Locke, or anything like that. And he says that while his character is Smokie, he doesn’t know whether or not he is also the Man in Black. Interesting!
Then a fan asks Damon and Carlton what Damon calls a “new iteration” of the common fan question about whether the writers are making it up as they go along. This time, the question is about whether the backgammon scene in the Pilot, where Locke talked about dark and light, and good and evil, was intended to lead to where we are now. Darlton’s answer? Sort of yes, and sort of no.
