Frank's Role?
« on: February 29, 2008, 12:12:00 AM »
Why is Frank "helping" Desmond and Sayid? If the people on Not Penny's Boat can't be trusted (or at the least he doesn't respect their authority), why did he bring them back there in the first place?

Do you think he just took the job for money? Because he was supposed to be flying their plane, did he have a secret agenda to help them if they were found?

Has he just recently decided to help them the more that he learns about his co-workers?

What do you think?

Well, we DO know that Frank was supposed to have been flying 815 the day it crashed. He knew the dead pilot, along with the plane in the trench, was a plant. I think Frank has a bone to pick over the cover-up of the crash of flight 815.

The 4 boat people that landed on the island seem to each have their own agenda.  Frank's, to me, seems to have to do with guilt.  He was suppose to be flying that plane.  His guilt lead him to memorize all the passengers.  Now that he has met some survivors he can ease his guilt by helping.

Or not.  :D

Still, they wouldn't hire a guy just because he felt guilty.  He must have something else to recommend him. They could choose from any number of pilots. And, if guilt were his specific agenda, wouldn't that mean that he would have worked out a plan with the leaders he met (Jack, Juliet, Kate, or even Sayid) to rescue the rest of the survivors?

He seems to be at least generally doing his job--just flying back and forth. Not on a guilted agenda of rescue.

but he flys well.  that's the key.  he's a superb pilot, with a guilty conscience with an alcohol problem.  exchange pilot for surgeon and what do you get?  christian.  it's a theme.  people who are good at what they do, but sitll have issues.

Franks gonna die anyway so he might as well be nice.  No way Widmore is gonna let him live when he know full well that theres a fake 815 in the Sunda Trench and there are survivors in the S Pacific.

frank obviously got into the group because of that phone call. he said he knew the pilot and the footage on tv was fake. to keep him quiet, they let him come along. he doesnt have an agenda. he was told what and how to act, but is slowly realizing that he sided with the bad guys
