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, and he wears double denim like BOB. Also Mother Abagail's garden looks like Major Briggs' vision of the White Lodge when he was abducted there.

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.

[[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...
