Seeing as he ''was'' MaxHeadroom, it seems reasonable to assume he would've seen that video at some point prior to doing ''TheStand'', and there are definitely similarities, particularly Trash's {{laugh|ingmad}}.

** I'd always interpreted the mention of "Ralph" (deceased prior to Carrie's birth) preventing Margaret's intended infanticide as hallucination on Margaret's part, given her general lack of mental stability.

Not the same timeline, because of dates, but the same mythos applies. Randall Flagg is a Black Lodge spirit who has possessed lots of people, hence his nickname The Man With No Face. He sets Trash 'to burn', echoing 'Fire Walk With Me. He calls people to his power, like the Lodge called Windom Earle. Also Mother Abagail's garden looks like Major Briggs' vision of the White Lodge when he was abducted there.

[[WMG: Flagg is the Emperor.]]
Haven't finished the book yet, so don't crucify me, but I read Randal Flagg as a slightly weaker slightly more 'flawed' Emperor from Warhammer 40K. The charisma, the psychic (psyker?) abilities, the need to be the dominant culture, the fascist tendencies it al seems to fit. I like to read him as Emps, before his final form in 30000 a.d., slightly less powerful, slightly less in control but growing.

[[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...

** '''The Tower''' [[Franchise/TheDarkTower has been mentioned.]] ''And'' "The Dark Tower" is the title of the season finale to boot. Now, we may all panic, because apparently, Flynn already not only knows where it is, but knows what to do with it.

[[WMG: Flagg is Carrie White's Father.]]
Although it's stated in the novel ''Carrie'' that Ralph White, Carrie's father, was killed in a construction accident it might be possible that Randall Flagg was responsible for Carrie being born and the Black Prom. At one point Carrie sees her mother chase a "Dark Man" from their house. King also mentioned that "Ralph" stopped Margaret from killing Carrie when she was an infant. This might have been an error on King's part, but it could also be taken that "Ralph" was more than just a normal person. This could also be the case in the film canon, where Ralph is said to have run off with another woman (which might also make Randall Flagg Rachel Lang's father).

* Alternatively, he's Satan. While Nyarlathotep is the SatanicArchetype in the CthulhuMythos(which is pretty ironic), there's one difference between Nyarlathotep and Satan(besides their masters being [[BlueAndOrangeMorality wi]][[CosmicHorrorStory ld]][[AlmightyIdiot ly]] [[BlackAndWhiteMorality dif]][[DidYouJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu fer]][[TheOmniscient ent]]) is that Satan [[TheDevilIsALoser is pathetic on a fundamental level.]] Sure, Satan is portrayed as a MagnificentBastard, but only on an exterior level. Much like typical views of Satan, Randall Flagg is a psychopath who's a good manipulator, but fundamentally flawed [[spoiler:and got [[CurbStompBattle pwned at the end.]] ]]
