Season 1 Edit

Pilot Edit

He brings Sayid to the hospital in the morning of Day 1 of the outbreak, for flu-like symptoms. He acts as a translator for Sayid, and tells Dr Sanders that he refuses to stay in observation and just wants to go home. The first official version was that this was the moment Sayid infected Dr Sanders when it is actually the contrary.

Later, the Police traces Sayid to Radwan's house because traffic cameras got the tags on his car. At first he lies to Jake, saying he doesn't recognize Sayid's picture but when he assures that he is not with Immigration he explains that Sayid is his nephew. He brings them to the bedroom even though his wife Lena doesn't agree and warns Sayid about the Police.

The IES then gets the entire Nassir family into isolation. He tells Jake that it is their fault, because Sayid only had a bad cold.
