#13: Sawyer Becomes LaFleur
Always the schemer, it is a shock when the con-man James Ford/Sawyer becomes the calm and collected Dharma leader “LaFleur” in 1977. Preferring brains over brawn, LaFleur thinks things through with books as his guide instead of jumping into the fray with guns. When Sawyer finally lands in 1977, he blends in with the Dharma Initiative and becomes known as a reliable, respected leader with courage and common sense--in a way, Sawyer becomes Jack 2.0. He gets a second chance to be someone who always considers the consequences, who is loyal to his friends, who finds true love, and who is finally at peace with himself.
