There are a number of stories out this morning after Mr. Eko’s death last night. The New York Post as a some quotes from the producers about Eko’s demise, and MSNBC has an article that discusses Mr. Eko’s impact on the show.
I’m sure this was all planned out in advance, but it sure seems like if someone gets in trouble with the law in real life, their characters aren’t far away from dying on the show.
I told a friend last night that I think Bernard is going to be pretty upset about Eko’s death… After all, he’s the last one from the tail section that hasn’t been killed or captured.
I think it’s also pretty clear that the theory that “Smokey the Cloud” can manifest itself as a real creature, whether it be Jack’s dad, Kate’s horse, Walt, or Eko’s brother Yemi… well, I think that theory just got a lot stronger.
