Something didn’t strike me right about this scene when compared to the rest of the episode. The Italian man was visibly distressed at learning that Sayid was one of the Oceanic 6. But, Why?
Fast Forward to the end of the episode. Here is the dialogue:
Ben: Need I remind you what they did the last time you thought with your heart instead of your gun?
Sayid: You used that girl to recruite me into killing for you.
Ben: Do you want to protect your friends or not, Sayid? I have another name for you.
Sayid: But, they know I am after them now.
I think the golf bet happened after Sayid’s fling with Elsa. The “that Girl” is Elsa. The flashforward was out of sequence. So, where’s Nadia? Did Ben reference an incident with her?
Update: David (see comments below) had the Closed Caption text and it read: “You used that to recruit me into killing for you.”
The group did something, We think it involved Nadia. And, it was significant enough to turn Sayid from a reformed torturer to an executioner..
