But who does Elsa and Abaddon work for?  I'm assuming they were after Ben (given the info we have so far) and now, they're after Ben's island buddies?  what gives? :-\

I took it to mean that Sayid was working to keep the other 5 of the Oceanic 6 alive.  Like perhaps these people they're chasing are a danger to them.

I think that is the right line of thinking.
I concur... I think Abaddon getting through to Hurley was a mistake on Sayid's part... maybe not getting Elsa's boss?

Either that or maybe Abaddon getting through to Hurley was what set Sayid off to play the role of executioner again.

Ben is protecting the other survivors. Either the Oceanic 6 or the people that remained on the island.
Obviously Sayid makes some stupid mistake that gives Ben power over him. I'm sure Desmond has something to do with it too, since they both got on the helicopter.

I have a weird felling that Desmond will be dead by seasons end.  Penny's people will run into Ben's and she's gonna die too.  Just throwing that out there.  He is not one of the Oceanic Six.

I'm guessing Paik/Widmore...

Ben would not send Sayid out to save the Oceanic six if in fact Sayid is one of the survivors.  That would make no sense what-so-ever.

  I called it though about Ben being Sayid's boss. 
The voice threw me off, at first I thought it could have been Christian.

yeah, but that didn't really effect him too negativly...Bhasra incident?

The only way i can see Sayid working for Ben is due to a common goal... Sayid isn't in it for any money or anything, he has enough of that.  So he must want to take these people down as bad as Ben does, and that is where he gets his info.

Why not?  If Ben is supposedly 'good' then it would make sense that he wants to protect those that he tried to warn.  And if Ben has only 6 to choose from, and we know who 3 of them are, Sayid would make the strongest/most clever assassin, wouldn't he?

He's not Oceanic Six because he wasn't on Oceanic. Ben isn't Oceanic Six either.

Whatever Ben is doing is "best for the island." Maybe keeping the 6 alive is in the island's best interest somehow.

Well...if we know Jack and Hurley want to go back...maybe Sayid is fighting because he sees it as his way to go back..and that is what Ben's main goal is?  But why would killing people accomplish that?  It seems like more of a vendetta...

I feel like somehow Ben is manipulating and using Sayid - he had some agenda where he needs these people dead, probably because they're after him and connected to Abaddon, etc., and he's like threatening Sayid with the "you don't want your friends to die, do you" thing.  It's Ben doing what he always does, which is find out what people care about and exploiting it.

And how the heck does Ben get off the Island!!!!
