It's like I expect him to turn like a compass and hone in on some dark spot--and you don't know why he's looking in that direction, you can't see anything there. But then he steps up, shine that light on it, and exposes whatever (or whoever) is hiding there.

In other words, you can hide from the lantern light, but not those glowing, see-in-the-dark eyes.
I hear you. I think the part that intrigues me about this deck is the dual personality. I agree with your assessment about his eyes showing his inner light, but I think the shadow side of this card could be a possibility of following what's seen from the lantern and ignoring what his eyes truly tell him.
