We don’t get to meet Wild John until nearing the end of, “Way of the World,” but he is an intriguing character, to say the least. Michael meets John in the middle of the desert, and the stubbly-bearded man is wearing no clothes.
That’s right, he’s absolutely naked.
Michael inquires as to why, and the response strangely alludes to his connection with divine forces. Wild John goes on to say Michael is ‘from above’, to which Michael dismisses quite easily.
Obviously, being a ruthless murderer throughout his childhood makes it easy for Michael to be know that he is no angel.
Wild John leaves Michael with the curious words, “I have to make straight the way for the promise.”
Michael shrugs, and leaves the naked man with a potato sack to use for some pants.
