I thought Sayid was supposed to scout the Others' camp, light the signal fire, and then wait for Jack and the others to meet up with him.
But instead Sayid does more than scout--he "goes Rambo". He goes ahead and searches each hut. In fact, he opens every door he can find. If the Others were actually there, he'd be in a heap of trouble. One against more than a dozen or so.
Then he (presumably) lights the signal fire. Later on, Sayid is shown back on the boat with Sun and Jin. I thought he was supposed to wait for Jack and the others on the beach.
Didn't seem like that good of a plan to me. Especially with the boat floating out there in broad daylight on a cloudless day... Also, I wonder how Sayid could get ashore undetected in said weather conditions...maybe he has gills...
Anyone else think Sayid's plan was poorly designed and executed?
I thought they sailed to some nearby beach area out of sight of the camp so that once he swam to land, he'd still have to hike a little ways. He'd still beat Jack's group back there. I think once he got there, it was so clearly deserted that he had to "go rambo" checking to make sure there really wasn't anyone there, but prepared to fight them off if they were hiding in the huts.
I wonder where the really do live.

sayid, combat verteran, jack sawyer kate and hurley,,, regular types, adn 2 know how to at least point a gun. sayid i think intended to subdue the others if possible, and basically have dinner cooking when jack and company got there. this guy was republican Guard, no slouch
haha i totally agree with baylady and digital... Sayid is the man, and he probably saw the desertedness and just played it by ear... kept goin closer and grew more and more privy to the fact that no one was there... Then, he still lit the fire for Jack and Co. and waited, probably just offshore (they didn't look like they were sailing, just floating/anchored), for them to arrive.. Hopefully we'll get to see some good rescue attempts when Jack and them never show up!!!
That is, unless they are awaiting this Pala Ferry and are already gone by then.
