Why Sayid is working for Ben
« on: April 25, 2008, 12:19:05 AM »
We got this information tonight. Ben delivered Nadia's murderer to him and instantly became his soldier. Pretty decent explanation for those turn of events.

Ben also played Sayid perfectly!! Tried to talk him out of it, acted like he did not want his helped. THen reeled him in.

And that little smirk Ben gave walking away.  Kinda like the one the Emporer gave Vader when he told him he killed Padme.

Since Ben can't kill Widmore, he's found a hitman in Sayid to do his dirty work..
but, I don't think Sayid will be able to kill Penny if it ever gets to that.. So maybe Ben may ultimately have to get his hands dirty..

That is setting us up for a nice show down with Desmond and Ben over Penny.

If Desmonds survives.

I think he probably has enough people working for him and I believe he really wouldn't kill an innocent for personal gin.   Or maybe I'm as gullible as the rest of them!

I think Ben killed Nadia to get Sayid to kill for him.
Like he used Walt to get Michael to kill for him.
Sayid is his best chance to get to Desmond and to Penny.

I'd like to know how Sayid bought that story about how Ben got to Iraq. He just used Desmond's boat, the Elizabeth and floated to safety in Fiji, then chartered a plane........HUH ??? :-\  Why wouldn't Sayid ask about the rest of the people obviously left alive on the island? If it's just that easy for Ben to leave, why isn't everyone leaving?

For an interrogator, Sayid is just not very curious, and tends to accept certain things at face value.

Also makes you wonder if Widmore can't kill Ben. You'd think he would have tried, especially after Ben announces his intentions to kill Penny.  Maybe it's one of the "rules" as in "you changed the rules."

Technically, he didn't use Walt to get Michael to kill for him. It was already stated that The choice to kill anyone was Michael's.

I'd like a peek at that rule book. Ben looked genuinely "lost" when she got shot. Had he been following a set of unspoken rules heretofore? Now all bets are off...

Am not sure if he killed off Nadia tho'....When Sayid spotted him, he looked like he was really trying to get away...but his connin' ways are solid and well studied, sooooo that door is
still one of the choices...
There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.
