Just a reminder about Locke and MIB

GRAY-HAIRED MAN: Do you have any idea how badly I wanna kill you?


GRAY-HAIRED MAN: One of these days, sooner or later... I'm going to find a loophole, my friend.

BLOND MAN: Well, when you do, I'll be right here.

GRAY-HAIRED MAN: Always nice talking to you, Jacob.

JACOB: Nice talking to you, too.


JACOB: You like it? I did it myself. It takes a very long time when you're making the thread, but, uh... I suppose that's the point, isn't it?

LOCKE: Hello, Jacob.

JACOB: Well, you found your loophole.

LOCKE: Indeed I did. And you have no idea what I've gone through to be here.

BEN: Have you met before?

LOCKE: In a manner of speaking. [Whispers] Do what I asked you to, Ben.

So, if it's just a theory that Locke = MIB (and I've heard that across the wiki), how can the above be justified?

Which one is more likely (IE, simpler): MIB is now Locke, or a resurrected Locke just happens to suddenly act just like MIB-to the point where he also wants Jacob dead-and is recognized as also searching for a loophole by Jacob?
