It's revealed in ''The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower'' that Flagg has no interest in the Crimson King's plan to pull down the Tower -- he wants to ascend the Tower and control it himself. For this, Flagg needs Roland to live long enough to foil the Crimson King, hence he needs Patrick Danville to save Roland. Since Derry was the Court of the Crimson King, and Flagg was ostensibly in the King's service, Flagg had to limit his [[Main/TheStarscream insubordination]] to offering a crucial bit of advice to Louise. Even so, Flagg had to disguise himself to prevent the King from finding out.

** Green is also a color associated with Flagg in ''Literature/TheStand'', and what he says to Lois (specifically, the laugh being described as a "titter" and saying "Look at me Lois/Llyod") further strengthens the argument.

to:

*** Furthermore, it's stated in the very same novel [[spoiler: that all writers are prophets of Gan, and that all stories are depictions of real universes and their events.]] So it's likely that the world of ''Insomnia'' is indeed real and part of the greater multiverse, which, by extension, would lend some credibility to the theory of Flagg having shown up there.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:Black gunslinger is not actual Roland but only took his name]]
Related to one above. Black gunslinger we see in the movie is not Roland himself but is most likely another version of Speedy Parker/ Parkus the gunslinger from Talisman who took his name. Probably because Roland is dead but hey, somebody has to carry on and finish his quest.

* During his and Roland's palaver in ''The Gunslinger'', Walter[[spoiler:/Flagg]] briefly says, "As you resume your quest for the Tower," with Roland rudely interrupting with "Resume? I never left off!", causing Walter to laugh uproariously for a moment before being able to continue. [[spoiler:This conversation only takes place in the revised edition, which takes the seventh book's ending into account.]]

That's why they're so smart, and seem to combine traits of several different animals.

[[WMG: BANGO SKANK is Jamie DeCurry.]]
At some point he picked up a copy of Wizard and Glass brought to All-World from Keystone Earth. He was so mad about being left out that he traveled to Keystone Earth and scrawled his graffiti on everything so he could still be in the story. He used BANGO SKANK just because [[StableTimeLoop it was on the road sign at the beginning of Wizard and Glass.]]

Stephen King states in his forward to ''The Gunslinger'' that the books were originally conceived as ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''. The latter took place during the Civil War; although it wasn't the focus, it was an omnipresent force shaping the characters' actions - much as the Fall of Gilead was treated in the first volume.

[[spoiler:He could still use the sneetches because they were technology-based and not created by the King himself, but his other abilities (permanently turning an area the size of Thunderclap into a blighted wasteland, for example) were shut down by the same magical field that kept the King from just jumping or climbing off the balcony.]]

Since the books did make Deschain being white a plot point in certain areas concerning race. [[spoiler:It's also worth noting that this isn't the first time the Gunslinger has gone on his quest. Who is to say that he had to look and be the same person every time he went through his quest?]]
