I re watched a bit of Dead is Dead last night and I had a thought about Ben's encounter in the chamber beneath the Temple. Obviously when Ben is surrounded by black smoke and sees images from his past he is with the Monster. Then after the smoke disappears back into the vent it came from, Ben turns around to see Alex. Everyone seemed to assume at the time that Alex was also the smoke monster, but this was before The Incident and the known existence of Jacob's Nemesis. So what if, the smoke was the Monster and Alex was the Nemesis? I know many people think the Monster and the Nemesis are one and the same, but I don't think so. They may work together, but I do not believe they are the same entity. Thoughts?
