Theory About John Coffey (Spoiler Included)

    Hi everyone!

    I have a theory that John Coffey shines. He knows other's thoughts and feelings, and knows of other's illnesses. This is VERY similar to Danny Torrance in Doctor Sleep. John is even able to move illnesses between people.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    ....welcome young lady!....I would concur that John has a touch of The Shine, but he takes it one step further by being able to eliminate physiological ills he senses.....

    Even Steve admitted to it being a little heavy-handed, but John Coffey shared the same initials as another very important historical figure who also had powers to change water into wine and heal people's afflictions.

    John Coffey is a mutant roont. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

    Welcome to the boards! Yes, this is a great place!

    And I'll jump on the bandwagon and say, yes, John Coffey (like the drink. but not spelled that way) had a shine as well as his incredible healing powers.

    as anyone noticed how much John coffey fits the description of the "roont" children from Wolves of the calla, maybe he's a walk-in, what do you all think?
