I can't make up my mind...

Ben to Sayid "Do you want to protect your friends or not, Sayid?"

What friends is he talking about? The Six? Or the ones left on the island? I've been going over that one now for the last week and can't come to any conclusion...

The one and only thing I can come up with for this one is that the Oceanic Six are now such public figures - signing autographs kind of famous - I don't think that anybody would get away with 'getting rid' of them.
The ones on the island however... people don't even believe they're alive and if somebody is trying to cover it up, they certainly don't want the survivors coming back and telling their stories...

So, based on that and that alone, I'm thinking that Sayid is actually protecting his 'friends' on the island... I don't think the Oceanic Six needs that kind of protection.

It could go either way. Sayid's friends could mean Bernard, Rose & company on the island, or the Oceanic 6.  The Oceanic 6 may not need protection from violence - Abaddon just seems to loom -  but they may need protection from rampant insanity (half of those shown so far have been shown to have gone bonkers).

Ben as a boss would be like that episode of the Family Guy where Stewie loans Brian money and in return, Brian has to work it off by being a telemarketer for some ponzi scheme business the baby has created.  It was on tbs two nights ago.  Priceless.
hmm I guess it would help if I watched FamilyGuy....I don't get it...

Broaden your horizons.  Roll a big one and turn on a Family Guy marathon.

About Kate's redemption...
I'm not sure, but if someone is declared dead isn't he absolved of his sentence, even if (s)he "comes back to life"?

This is off topic in this thread, but no, a person isn't excused from a crime just because someone mistakenly declares them dead.  You may be thinking of 'double jeopardy' where if a person is aquitted of a crime and then new evidence turns up that proves them guilty, they cannot be tried again, no matter how damning the evidence.  This is why many prosecutors will not go forward with a murder case if they don't have a body (like the unfortunate Natalie Holloway case in Aruba).  They fear that they will lose and if the body turns up later, it's too late.

OK, sorry, now back to our regularly scheduled program, "Who's the boss" already in progress.......

I was just rewatching and Sayid to Locke says the day he starts trusting Ben, is the day he sells his soul...just thought it interesting and worth repeating...
