So Is Sayid Back To Normal?
« on: April 07, 2010, 12:47:16 AM »
He definitely didn't seem like the "I feel nothing" zombie of past episodes. His recognition of Desmond from last week: did that trigger something in Sayid or was finding and bringing Desmond to MIB his mission all along?

I didn't see anything to make me think anything's changed with Sayid.  And yes, I suspect retrieving Desmond was his mission.

I definitely saw a difference, whether intentional or not. The way Sayid said "Run..." to the woman escorting Sayid (Zoe) had a noticeable amount of "old" Sayid's cockiness and confidence to it as where lately Sayid's every word has seem to come from a drugged-out, non-emotional state. And the tone of voice Sayid used to tell Desmond that he "didn't have time to explain" was very reminiscent of "old" Sayid's personality as well. Don't know how much of that was purposeful or if it was just Naveen Andrews letting some natural "Sayid-ness" slip through lol.

I noticed it too, but I'm not sure what to think of it though.  I hope he is back to normal.  I miss "old Sayid".

Something tells me it wasn't mercy that he let Tina Fey err I mean Zoe go. It might have been something as simple as just letting someone live to spread fear among the rest of Widmore's people.

Why was Desmond so willing to go with Sayid. Is this the mission that Widmore has planned for Desmond?

I'm getting the impression that Desmond has  connected onto something "bigger" and understands it in a way that we don't quite know about yet, and it is giving him a definite sense of peace and calm. Widmore's questionable tactics and requests don't phase him, and neither does Sayid's violence and requests. It's like Dez is saying "I'm not worried or confused anymore. I get it."

To me, it looked like Desmonds consciousness jumped from the sideflash, like he has become aware of both timelines now. When he woke up in the lightning box, the first thing he did was look at his hand, the hand he just used to touch Penny. It goes back to the scene with Daniel on the bench, "What if all this wasn't supposed to be our life?"

The old Sayid would have popped a cap in Zoe so fast your head would spin.
I can hope he is going to get back to a kinder/gentler Sayid, but I doubt it. Sayid wants Des and wants to get him away from the enemy (widmore).

Des is willing to go with Sayid because he knows what he has to do, to protect his timeline and prevent the alt. He is working on it from inside the Alt and will soon make all of the main characters remember their Island life. I can't wait for him to get Jack and Locke together. If they remember and reconcile, I think I'll be screaming for joy.

To me it looks like the old Sayid is dead. Kinda like Darth Vader. Anakin Skywalker was dead and all that was left was the evil Vader. However, there was still some good left in him that Luke was able to bring out. So maybe there is still some good left in Sayid that someone can bring out, but my gut tells me the Sayid we knew is long gone.

If anything, I'd say that it's Desmond whom has become as "un-normal" as Sayid and Claire - although he's obviously at the other end of the spectrum from those two.

I think Sayid was just doing his job of retrieving Des from the sub. I'm not even sure if he feels Widmore's people are "evil." (Can't remember his exact  statement to Des.) I'm not even sure MIB is "evil." For some reason I've liked him more than Jacob (not sure if it is just Terry O'Q's brilliant acting).

I thought after he told her to run he was going to kill her.  But maybe he just wants Des to feel "safe."  But Des knows better!

If Sayid (and Claire I guess) are filled with "darkness"; could Desmond be filled with "light"?
