just because he was going to help, doesnt mean he wanted to. he said over and over that he was done with them now.
he also probably was in the dark about a lot of the things.
is he mentally retarded?
he understands the stakes (200+ dead) and still helps them, which is weird as shite and all, but whatever
why would he allow the old man to talk to his boss?
or more importantly, why would he still help "them" after 200+ are dead and a crazy old man is talking about the coffin being a coffin...which he knew was trying to be smuggled out at that very instant
