Why was Sayid going to Toronto?
« on: March 03, 2010, 03:43:32 PM »
In the Alternate timeline, Sayid says he's going to Toronto to work.

The only other Toronto reference I can find is when Sawyer is pulling a con on Jess ("Confidence Man" s1e08) and says he has an investor in Toronto, but this could have just been a story since he's conning Jess.

Do we have any other information to help us know why Sayid would be going to Toronto to work?

Sayid had said that he was working as a translator for oil companies.  Maybe he's negotiating up north?

Because that's where his boss told him to go. I wouldn't worry about this one too much Zeke. It seems to me that all of the off-island timeline stuff is pretty straight forward. What you see is what you get.

To see a Maple Leafs game and visit the Hockey Hall of Fame.  Beginning of October means the beginning of hockey season and Toronto is the Mecca of hockey!  ;D

Every now and then we agree Bri. The other times we don't, you're wrong. LOL
