I always find the deleted scenes interesting, because you get to see where they decide not to give something away too early or decide to go a different direction. In the deleted scene with Sun, Lapidus, and Christian it seems very noticeable that Christian interacts with his environment. He grabs and uses the axe and Frank's flashlight. It seems that this is very deliberate. There's not really any other reason for the scene, but to show us that he is incarnate. Either they decided to go a different direction or wanted him to remain ambiguous. I'm leaning towards the latter. Thoughts?
