Smokey/Nemesis...plotting all along

I was so thrilled by the finale of season 5. The best finale yet in my opinion. As always, it leaves questions...

I am now compelled to watch all of the previous episodes with Smokey - I am so sure that he has been plotting - I keep thinking back to Eko and Shannon. Until tonight I had always thought that Smokey was judging for the best in a character but I now think that he was analysing for his own purpose and John Locke was the most impressionable target he found...someone who wanted a purpose and could be moulded into what was required. Smokey can take the form of the dead - only a leader can see Jacob, so Smokey (aka "Nemesis")worked his twisted web, using the form of Christian in order to sacrifice John for his requirements. Thoughts?
