Randall Flagg name checked?

Discussion in ''Salem's Lot' started by Takoren, Dec 2, 2015.

    Check this link out: These Stephen King Connections Will Blow Your Mind

    Scroll down to the picture of Danny Glick floating outside Mark's window from the mini-series.

    If this was the only site talking about Flagg's mention in 'Salem's Lot, I'd just ignore it. But they got everything else right, plus I've seen this mentioned elsewhere.

    I just recently read 'Salem's Lot for the second time. My edition was older, so maybe the newer ones say something the older one doesn't, but nowhere in this book was there a mention of Flagg. I definitely would have noticed that.

    Anyone know what this article is talking about?

    He might be name checked in the mini series but not in the novel.

    The 2004 mini-series? Well, anyway, the article made it sound like the book name-checked him but I can vouch that at least the initial version did not.

    Never watched the mini-series but I know it's not in the book. Don't know that I've seen many connections in SK's movies other than towns/cities?

    This question is asked in a lot of places on the internet, but no one has come up with a conclusive answer. He's definitely not in the novel--he hadn't been created yet. There are claims that he's mentioned in the miniseries, but no supporting evidence. And which version of the miniseries?

    Cats don't know what they're talking about. Ain't no Flagg in Hooper's Lot. Hutch, maybe...and Fred Willard (!), but no walking dude.

    And the rest of the list, most of it, is like...duh? Yer just now figuring this stuff out?

    (Did make me wanna watch DEAD ZONE, CUJO, DARK HALF, and NEEDFUL THINGS again, though, in that order, all at once like.)

    The article came from Buzzfeed. The site where All you need to know if you are like 16 and think you're cool.


    I read buzzfeed, be quiet

    Maybe he was Callahans 'Mr Flip', we just didnt know the boogieman's first unknown name was actually Richard or Mayhaps Roland.

    The child that gets hit by his mum is called Randall. Random thought.

    That must be it. Somehow that slipped by me, as did the "RF" character in The Jaunt.

    Wow, I had never thought of that. Probably because I was too busy being upset that the baby died.

    I don't remember if that part is in the mini-series. Don't think they would show that back then.

    I may be out on a limb here, but didn't Barlow mention a master he serves? No names were mentioned but I'dguess that was Flagg.

    I'm on a re-read right now and I've definitely not seen a mention of Flagg or interpreted anything to be representative of him, unless you count him as the Dark Lord that Straker offers the Glick boy to as a sacrifice. The McDougall baby is named Randy as mentioned, but I'm not buying that as a connection.
