O'Brien is a top Party member with a lot of influence. Over the course of the story, he and Winston build a strange relationship based upon mutual understanding. Unfortunately, although Winston does not trust him.... he does allow O'Brien the opportunity to coerce, entrap, and in the end.... completely brainwash him through torture. Winston should have listened to his instincts, as O'Brien was a master manipulator with complete allegiance to the Party.
