** Green is also a color associated with Flagg in ''{{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.

[[Each cycle is a doomed timeline and the cycles will end when Roland abandons saving the tower in favor of building a new one which will create a new world.]]]] [[WMG: Everyone's random bursts of intuition are echoes of the previous cycles.]] Many, many times, the protagonists seem to simply "know" what to do without really any explanation. They're in fact remembering echoes of the previous cycles, repeating what worked before and avoiding what hasn't. For instance, the reason Eddie and Jake knew about Dandelo was because they were with Roland during previous cycles when they met the empathic vampire (Susannah might've been with them too, or might've died before then during the previous cycles). The cycles may end when the entire Ka-tet makes it to the Dark Tower, and Roland chooses not to enter and remain with his loved ones.

** Not so {{Jossed}}, especially considering that this is WMG. [[spoiler: Dandelo is very similar to IT, and has a stuttering robotic servant named after the stuttering hero of ''{{It}}''. This, in combination with hints from ''Dreamcatcher'' that It is still alive, indicate that Dandelo is It in Allworld.]]

** In {{It}}, the driving force behind IT was the deadlights (the red) circling outside the gates of the universe while the other that help the kids after the turtle was the white. Since Pennywise was the physical embodiment of the deadlights, IT was[[spoiler:/is]] the most powerful creature in King's universe. All others that followed were decedents/creations of Pennywise or at least a varintant (like the Crimson King's Spider-god mother).

Blaine claimed that Patricia, the other monorail based in Lud, had essentially had a mental breakdown and would not stop crying. He removed certain restraints from Patricia's programming so she could kill herself. He then goes on to plan to kill himself, after destroying the city of Lud.

Just re-read the books, and was thinking about the series from the Bad Guys' perspective.
She wasn't that much interested on the Tower as Roland and Eddie from the get-go, and as soon as she had a chance to stay with a twinner Eddie, she took it with both her hands.

of the boulder free zone committee ignored the urging of Mother Abagail...Abagail... [[WMG: The reason Susannah gives up on the Tower...]] Is that she never had the chance to see the rose as the others. She wasn't that much interested on the Tower as Roland and Eddie from the get-go, and as soon as she had a chance to stay with a twinner Eddie, she took it with both her hands.

The series as a whole seems to run on a dreamlike logic when you think about it. The strange setting, the deus-ex-machinas, the abundance of characters just plain knowing stuff out of nowhere... It's all a dream that Stephen King had one night, hence why King's works, King himself, and his childhood memories keep showing up.

[[WMG: Flagg rules a level of the Tower Akin to 'The Stand'.]] In 'Wizard and Glass', the Ka-tet visits a world the twin of 'The Stand'. Not the exact same, mind you as the products are Tukuro Spirits and Nozz-A-La. Its mentioned in The Dark Tower that he does indeed rule "a level of the tower" so its not much of a stretch to assume that Flagg drew them into the level of the tower that he himself controlled... Possibly one in where the remains of the boulder free zone committee ignored the urging of Mother Abagail...

** {{Jossed}} by the last book. ''{{Insomnia}}'' is not a part of the tower universe; it's actually a deception in the same mode that Odd Lane is a glamour and a "wrong direction". *** Still possible. It's Roland who declares ''{{Insomnia}}'' a dead end.
