Title: Why Sayid is working for Ben
Post by: jugdish 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.

it almost makes me wonder if ben could have been behind nadia's death.  just to get sayid's help.

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..

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.

Post by: Lostfanchrim on April 25, 2008, 10:05:59 AM
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?
Title: Re: Why Sayid is working for Ben

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...

Yeah. When Ben said "he changed the rules" first I thought he meant the island or Jacob, by not letting the bullit bounce off the head of Alex. Ben immediately went into his secret room and released Smokey. So I think that was against the rules too.

Post by: BobBX542 on April 25, 2008, 11:14:16 AM
Well, the thing that got me was how Ben said all of that right before she got shot, almost as if, if you say it and believe it, it will happen. That's why I think that Widmore said to Ben that he killed his daughter, because Ben didn't believe that he didn't care about Alex.

Post by: blueeyed2200 on April 25, 2008, 11:17:07 AM
I think Ben's grin as he was walking away from Sayid was merely just satisfaction with himself for being able to recruit Sayid to help him.  He was not being inconspicuous in any way following that guy.  And knowing Sayid and his personality, he had to have known that Sayid would be watching Ben from the moment he saw him in Iraq.  So naturally Ben had to have known that if he was able to lead him to Nadia's killer, that Sayid would be willing to work with him to take down Widmore and his men.  I honestly don't think he would have been behind Nadia's death, but with this show, you never know.

...which is what I hope is coming.  Frankly, I've become satisfied with or lost most interest in the direction of many of the storylines, but this season has piqued my interest in the Desmond-Penny story.  "The Constant" wasn't about Des being Miles' constant, it was about Pen being Des', but even more about love being a true, if not always solid, constant in the world.  I think the love between Des & Pen is the most true and honest represented on the show.  Everyone else has some form of awful little secret s/he is (or feels) forced to hide, and then there's Ben, the master of secrets and manipulation.  A showdown 'twixt Ben and Des over Pen would really be a battle of unconditional love against (choose your evil force).   
Title: Re: Why Sayid is working for Ben
Post by: Austruck on April 25, 2008, 01:26:04 PM
To me it seemed as if Sayid knew he was being followed, but that he said some little thing like, "You!" when he uncovered and saw that it was actually Ben. I found that a little odd.

Also, I don't find Ben's answer as to how he got off the island all that weird. (It's not true, but it's believable.) After all, Des didn't get it to work because he didn't know the bearings to follow. But Ben does. He had Michael follow them, and that worked (which Sayid would already know). The helicopter pilot knows the coordinates to follow too.

So, the issue is whether or not you can steer the vessel properly and determinedly enough to get through whatever hassles there are in getting there.

Yeah, that was set up prior when Ben saw him on TV being hounded Paris Hilton style by the press. So Sayid just thought he was another paparazzi.

His "travel story" did sound plausible, but did he do a Bunny Trick? hehehehe Cause, unless he was hijacked by Capt. Jack Sparrow and dumped in the Sahara, we know that's bull.

Put nadia on the same list as the fake plane crash.  Widmore? Ben?  We could debate this until next year and we won't have the answer until it's given to us.

Didn't someone have a fence party going on around here somewhere?  I'm climbing right up on this one myself.

Maybe neither of them are responsible for Nadia's death.  Ben saw Sayid on tv trying to bury his wife in peace... maybe he just decided to use this as an opportunity to recruit Sayid.  What evidence is there that the picture was taken as close to where Nadia died (in location as well as time) as what Ben stated?  Sayid was seeking vengeance and Ben knew that he wasn't going to require much, if any, evidence of who was responsible.

I don't recall that it was but I only watched the original airing last night (and 10pm is too late to catch everything).  You watched it again at lunch... did you see the info?

Actually, never mind.  Why would Bakir be watching the funeral procession if he didn't play a part in her death.  He must be responsible and we know that he works for Widmore because Ben wanted to have him give Widmore a msg.

I saw some stuff in the rewatching, but wasn't really looking at that at the moment. As for the rest, I assumed it was just a nice happy coincidence that Ben saw Sayid on TV and decided to use it to his advantage.

The hotel was in Tunisia and Ben obviously has access to money, so we can assume he traveled in a more modern fashion to Iraq.

I won't believe Widmore engineered Nadia's death until someone comes up with a likely motive. Ben, on the other hand has a motive. He needs a killer and knows how to manipulate Sayid. I'm less sure that Ben had the opportunity though as he was apparently pretty busy hurting his arm and teleporting about the time of her death. So, I'm not sure.

Bakir could just be watching Sayid. I'd lay odds that Widmore's got all of the O6 under surveillance.

do see that ben has more motive in nadia's death, is hard to see this one for the trees in the forest are blocking the forest (?)...

with if's being the sinkholes in many an idea is a hard read indeed...I at this point trust neither, seeing the ends they will go to...

was widdy having sayid watched in case ben came a looking for him? the guy watching him? was he working for ben really thinking he was working for widdy, that fits within a ben M.O., the twisty turnin' con man....it's like a pretzel in knot theory.....*whoosh*

Post by: nomteticus on April 29, 2008, 11:05:42 PM
Since I'm kind of a Ben fan, I say Widmore was up to it. That being said, I believe Ben wanted to recruit Sayid by handing over the killer. He probably didn't want to meet him right away (he tried to run when Sayid saw him), that's why he had to make up the story of how he got there, but his objective was accomplished nonetheless.

Still, Sayid's gulllibility surprises me. He could have tried to ask Bakir a few questions before capping him.

I believe Ben is not evil, that he would not kill an innocent person (Nadia), but he knows how to take advantage out of a given situation.



P.S. I was right about the boat people being the Russeau and Carl shooters. It was obvious from the start - the others wouldn't have opened fire risking to shoot Alex. Ben is not a cold blooded killer (he had to kill the arab guy and he left the other one alive).

Amen, brothah.  I believe Ben also manipulated the situation; he knew what Widmore's next chess move would be and trumped him on it.

I also must tell my good chat buddy Juggie:  Bring back "Is Kelvin Dead" string.  Just because you're tired of it doesn't mean we are, and it also doesn't mean that because it's locked now that it isn't a pertinent thread to the overall storyline--particularly after tonight's epi in which we find out Christian is back.

Kelvin is alive, and we'll see him again.  <wink> to BRB

How was Nadia killed 5 days before she was buried?  Her religion dictates that her body must be laid to rest within 24 hours.  This is a time quagmire because I can guaranflippingtee you that Sayid would bury her within 24 hours, as he did his buddy who committed suicide in S2 when the CIA got Sayid to spy on his buddy so as to find out where Nadia was.

This timeline makes no sense whatsoever, particularly given Sayid's devotion to his religion.  We've seen him in a few instances at prayer rituals on the Island.

I agree with the time thing and the burial, but you have to accept the fact that sometimes things happen that hinder the actual process. Look at Jack's dad. They almost didn't allow the body on the plane, and not to sound racist about this, but maybe they thought that Sayid was a terrorist or something, and that the body actually had a bomb in it. I know how ridiculous that sounds, and I don't believe that myself, but there are several reasons why he might not have been able to bury her right away.

As for the Kelvin thread, don't worry about it, we're basically over it now. I'm just leaving the juggy line in my sig just for a while for the hell of it.

That was the point I was trying to make. There are a whole slew of reasons why he might not have had her in the ground right away, andI hate to sound racist again, but does anyone really think that there would be any kind of special treatment given to Muslims just because it's a body?? I don't. Not in this day and age.

the fact that Sayid had to wait that long to bury Nadia in her homeland makes it even more heartbreaking for him, I bet.  Particularly because if you recall, Sayid was on 815 BECAUSE he delayed his original trip to Sydney to bury his friend in keeping with his religion.

How sad... :(
