how come the teacher didnt localize naive time zone and instead converted an eastern timezone
Video duration : 6:45
Kenneth Love started with naive datetime, localize it to eastern then converted it to utc.
how come the teacher didn't localize naive time zone straight to eastern and instead converted an eastern timezone to utc time zone? didn't he get the eastern timezone from localizing naive?

For that, yeah, it's mostly illustrative. But in the real world, you'd, ideally, have a naive datetime that you know where it was created. You'd then localize it to that timezone, then convert to UTC (unless you're lucky enough to have created it in UTC to begin with).
for teaching purposes maybe?
