Sayid Fails?!

By Katelyn

Sayid Jarrah is an all around badass.  He was a torturer and communications officer in the Iraqi Republican Guard.  For heaven’s sake, he broke some dude’s neck with his feet!

Once he was off the island, Sayid began working as an assasin for Ben (and sporting a ponytail).  Sayid had no problem killing anyone he needed to.  He never failed at a mission.

He never failed at a mission until his most recent one.  Young Benjamin Linus was finally a match for him.

Sayid shoots young Ben at close range and Ben happens to live… seriously?!  The island’s second biggest badass (second to John Locke) fails to kill a little boy?  Is Benjamin Linus the new “boy who lived”?

I know Miles said that this is the present day for all of the “Losties” (we’ll just call them that) but it is the past for all the Dharma folk so technically no matter what the Losties do to the Dharmas they can never change the future.  But come on… Sayid is a badass.  He’s supposed to be able to kill anyone!

Bottom Line:  Sayid really let me down.

I am curious, however, how Richard Alpert and his eyeliner are going to save young Ben and what exactly he meant by “taking away his innocence”.

      That is true! He will always be a badass. I was just a little disappointed in the fact that he can kill dangerous adult men but he could kill the naive little Ben. But knowing what we know now, I suppose it happened like that for a reason.

    I can’t wait to find out the deal with his ‘awakening’ at the Temple.
