Should Sebastian have taken more care knowing Obadiah was after him?

Dec 2, 8:46pm Top

Yes definitely! He really slacked off and didn't pay attention to where he was being taken. I guess that had to happen so Obadiah had an opportunity to attack him but Sebastian could've done better!

yes - I agree with >2 gaylebutz: that he wasn't paying attention like he should have been (of course, I can't really blame him considering the things he's been finding out in this book)

I wonder if Henrietta knows about the discrepancy re Sebastian's birth and the voyage to America - perhaps she thought it was time for him to find out for himself and she involved him in this murder as it had the possibility of coming out.

He should have known Obediah was going to go for him. Now that his lack of attention endangered Tom there's no way he'll let Obediah live.

Yes Sebastian should have been taking more care knowing that Obadiah was after him.

This is invincible Sebastian we are speculating about here. He should have known that Obadiah was going to try time and time again to get him and been more careful...but this is Sebastian.

Yes, Sebastian should have been more aware, but he was momentarily distracted. Very stressful to be constantly on the lookout; luckily Sebastian can respond to danger at a moment's notice.
