ATL Sawyer can’t lie
I’ll have to refer again to something I read on Lostpedia Forum.
Someone there noted that Sawyer in the ATL is a very bad at lying. He doesn’t manage to fool Ava, he doesn’t manage to fool Miles and he doesn’t manage to fool Charlotte. Compare this with Island Sawyer, who is an incredible lier according to Not Locke. I don’t know what this means. Cops can’t lie properly?
