I like this account, except that therefore Locutus was completely and utterly misdirected.
Why is that bad? Locutus was misdirected and I think that's cool. If it had been Picard, he probably would have figured it out via intuition/gut feeling. Locutus doesn't have that. Therefore he fails.
I never said it was bad. My point was that being misdirected is really something like being confused.
Ah, I see. When you said "I like this account, except that therefore Locutus was completely and utterly misdirected"... it reads that you liked everything about the account except for the fact that Locutus would be misdirected. Sounded like you were against that idea.

Not the same as confused.

This isn't quite true. Picard was still alive inside Locutus, experiencing everything that happened, and the Borg were aware of everything that Picard was thinking. If Picard was able to figure it out, then the Borg would have known instantly.
What picard is and isn't experiencing while he is locutus is left pretty ambiguous. Picard might have realized something in his regular form that Locutus wouldn't. The small part of Picard left in Locutus might not have picked up on it, therefore locutus would have no idea.
