When Sayid was a kid he calmly broke a chicken's neck so that his friend wouldn't have to kill one. Of course he did. Sayid was a badass even then.
Young Ben tells Sayid about how he met Richard in the jungle a few years back, looking to join the Hostiles, and Richard told him to be patient. Ben tells Sayid he will help him.
Sayid doesn't want to lie and say that he's a Hostile trying to defect, so he's taken to some dude in a teepee to be tortured. As Sawyer says to Sayid, "He's our you." Uh-oh, Sayid may have met his match. He's drugged, and Sayid tells all about how he used to be on the Island and he knows all about the Stations, etc. Once he gets to the "I am from the future" bit they just think he's been over-drugged. The leaders vote to have Sayid killed.
A burning van rolls through the camp, setting a house ablaze. It was Little Ben, using that distraction to set Sayid free. Ben's all, "If I let you out, will you take me with you?" LOL, Sayid's gonna break this kid's chicken neck, isn't he?
Yep, Sayid does it even better - shoots the kid right in the chest. OK SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Like, what does this mean for the timeline? If Ben dies as a kid, can he still be alive now? Oy. I'll just sit back and wait for them to spell it out for me -- or just read my blogs tomorrow.
We also found out how Sayid got on the airplane. He met a chick at a bar and made out with her. That chick turned out to be a bounty hunter sent by the family of one of his victims to bring him to justice. And she brought him onto the doomed flight everyone else is on. Sayid's all, "Can we get the next plane?" HAHA. No. You can't.
