* MotiveDecay: Teddy Daniels keeps changing the reasons for his investigation. Initially he arrived at Ashecliffe to investigate Rachel Solando's disappearance but then he tells Chuck that the real reason was another inmate who he holds responsible for the death of his wife. From there he becomes obsessed with a massive conspiracy at Ashecliffe to suppress and cover up the truth and plans to expose the operation to the public. [[spoiler:This later gets explained as a symptom of his insanity, his lack of clarity impairs him to truly know his real self and his actual goals, so he has to constantly change and alter his circumstances]].
