Obrien is a prominent Inner Party member with whom Winston feels a strange bond. Winston feels that even if O'Brien is an enemy, it wouldn't matter because he knows O'Brien will understand him without explanation. Winston has a feeling that Obrien, part of the inner party, somehow harbors revolution against Big Brother and the party.
