Quote #10

What remained of the face became a strange and shifting composite. […] Danny saw the woman in 217; the dogman; the hungry boy thing that had been in the concrete ring. (55.76-78)

This is after Jack destroys his face with the mallet. The passage reinforces the idea that he's possessed by the Overlook and no longer acting of his own free will. Do you buy it?
