Everyone has been talking about why Ben didn't recongnize Sayid in the hatch about for a week now. This last episode, the writters came up with the "he won't remember anything excuse which I actually thought was pretty lame. Anyway, they did answer the question as to why Ben didn't recognize Sayid. What I want to know is why Russeau, even though she met with Jin and even rescued him, didn't recognize him in 2004. I really don't know if this is a stupid question, I just want that cleared up.
