For starters, I seemed to have missed the trailer/E3 thing that basically spoiled this.
Not sure how many of you read the comics, and this also might be pretty obvious. So, basically, before the Illusive Man was TIM, he was "touched" by a reaper artifact and not indoctrinated, but "tainted", for lack of a better word. Here's my question: Was TIM basically a super low key sleeper agent for the Reapers the whole time during ME2? Was he under their power enough that they could maybe gain his control, but not enough that he was aware? I got a sneaking suspicion about him many times, but I wasnt really sure the role. Now that we know he is after Shepard, it kinda makes seems like this is the logical conclusion. Thoughts?
