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.....
