I agree. He does have a saviour complex, he wants to play the hero and flipping on his sister to save himself is the last resort, but the opportunity to make a deal is rapidly diminishing. He doesn't do it soon, then the deal is gone. But whatever deal he strikes won't see him being released anytime soon. Maybe 20 years? He will want to save his Mum. They have a very strong bond, albeit extremely toxic and unhealthy. It must be killing him having her languishing in a jail and not being able to speak to her. So if he does make a deal it would be most likely to save her. She's still going down for 10 years+.He probably at least files an initial appeal. But, the world looks different from state prison than it does from the relatively comfy (by comparison) Leon County Jail, and CA's worldview could evolve pretty quickly once everything sinks in. CA must know that Sigfredo Garcia turned down offers to cooperate and will now die in prison.
