    Default Potential RF sighting in Keyhole? Not too spoilery...

    Nearing the end of the book, on my edition pg. 282 Roland surveys a crowd of miners.

    "He went back and I surveyed them. Luka was the oldest by far."

    But a few pages later (286), during the same scene, after Roland has the men line up by age, the man AFTER Luka is described:

    "After him came a man nearly as old, with a mangy white mustache, dirty gray hair falling to his shoulders, and a sinister, squinted look in his eyes. Or perhaps he was only nearsighted."

    Immediately after I read "nearly as old" I did a double take and reread the paragraph from before. I verified that Luka was the oldest by far and I thought this was a brain fart on King's part until I read the next sentence, given it's own line--

    "The list named him as Bobby Frane"

    Bobby Frane, Robert Frane, RF.

    Maybe this was obvious, but I love those little easter eggs and a google search didn't turn anything up so I thought I would share.

    Maybe but it would be strange since he already wrote him into the fairy tale portion of the novel. Then again it could just be a further example of how much Flagg played a part in Roland's life and just how clueless Roland was to it.

    King probably would have made the connection clearer if he was a manifestation of Flagg.

    Since the letter to Tim was signed with RF/MB, and the guy acted exactly like him, I don’t see any way it could not be him.
