*** The glass couldn't have been poisoned right before it was handed to Corvo, because the poison was put in by Samuel, who would have had no opportunity to do so (since he was on the mission with Corvo, and stayed with the boat while Corvo went to the pub)

** It's a largely odorless, colorless, tasteless poison that mimics the effects of intoxication until you pass out and (presumably) die. If Corvo dropped dead on the spot, everyone in the room not in on the conspiracy-ception would have panicked. If Corvo had copped to the fact he was being poisoned before it could work on him, he would have murdered the conspirators right then and there. Poison allows them to dispose of their biggest threat with minimal effort. And really, it would've worked if not for Samuel's attack of conscience.


Added DiffLines:

** Anything Corvo could (to Samuel's knowledge) do with the drink on the spot would have immediately roused suspicion. It would have been odd to turn down a drink for a celebratory toast, and he would not have been clumsy enough to accidentally drop a glass. It's also possible that Samuel hadn't made up his mind on whether or not to save Corvo until the very last second. I am assuming - though I have no basis for this without replaying that cutscene - the glass was poisoned right before it was handed to you, so it may have just been a spur of the moment decision on Samuel's part to underdose you. Which means he obviously couldn't have warned Corvo in advance.

** It could also be argued that killing Weepers increases Chaos because the Weepers you kill are people who contributed to the city. These are people who helped move the economy and produced goods and offered services. As far as it goes with the origin of the plague initially being to wipe out the poor and "lazy" people, many of the people infected at this point are not the same as those who were first and purposefully infected, since they likely died in the 6+ months since Corvo returned to Dunwall. No matter how you dispose of bodies, you're still straight up murdering folks who had a place in the city's system. And they are innocents who are sick with something they can't control and can be potentially freed from.

** Because Samuel doesn't want Corvo to die and the Loyalists state they need the body.

** The Loyalists state that they need the body, Samuel put Corvo on the raft independently.

\n** The Outsider relishes conflict and probably gave the mark to opposing parties on purpose.

** The only thing that makes sense is that Samuel didn't slip Corso the poison, but rather the antidote on the way back from the Tower. Then convinced the conspirators to allow him to "dispose of Corvo respectfully" or some such nonsense, in exchange for making Corvo think he was a backstabber. As for the Flooded District, he needed some place where the conspirators wouldn't go and check if the only flaw in their plan was still breathing. Besides, Corvo's done the impossible at least twice now, if he can do it a third time he's earned Samuel's loyalty for good.

* Fourthly, why take the corpse on a long boat ride across town? Taking an individual, unmarked corpse all the way to the flooded district has got to be the most obvious way of getting rid of the body. Especially since the compound actually has a cage filled with rats that strip a corpse to the bone in minutes. At the very least, if you're gonna put him in a boat, take away his gear (so he can't be connected to the recent killings) and put Corvo in one of those plague victim body bags (since his face is on wanted posters throughout the city).

* Secondly, why have Samuel do the poisoning? He doesn't seem close to any of the conspirators, has no official or professional loyalty to any of them, has the most moral compunctions and personal connection to the target, and spends a lot of time away from the pub. Why not Wallace? He's got extreme personal devotion to Pendleton, sees commoners like Corvo as being of lesser value, and he's already the guy in charge of getting everyone drinks. Heck, why not pour the poison in there yourself?
