    maybe he tries to lead her on , by purpose because he is lonely, maybe it tries to make us think he likes her, which is why he sends her to the barn, to blackmail her because he knows he can get something better out of her (idk if that makes any sense) maybe im just over thinking because im nervous about tomorrows exam

    i suppose it could be. I wouldn't get too nervous, as long as you stick to timings and that it should be ok.

    friendship, he thinks he could have what George and Lennie has.. as soon as George and Lennie arrive, slim and the newbies become quite close.. slim sticks up for lennie which would make George like him even more??

    Oh my god, I've had a similar same train of thought for Slim, since some of the quotes suggest a darker personality

    'Slim neither encouraged nor discouraged him. He just sat back quiet and receptive.' - This bit is followed by George opening up to Slim greatly. So Slim knows how to get information off people with arguably the most persuasive technique: silence. People try to fill silence as it's awkward to just stop a conversation midway and they're more likely to open up.

    '"What'd he do in Weed?" Slim asked calmly. "What'd he do in Weed?" Slim asked again.' - Shows persistence. Slim won't stop when a subject intrigues him and will persist until he gets what he wants.

    "I wisht somebody ... old an' a crippple." (in reference to Candy's dog) - Insensitivity towards Candy. Slim knows Candy is 'old an' a cripple' and may be planting suicidal thoughts in Candy's mind.

    "Me an' you'll go in an' get a drink." - He says this right after the death of Lennie. Perhaps he's capitalising on the moment and trying to get through to George and seal their friendship at George's most vulnerable?

    "You hadda George. I swear you hadda. Come on with me." - This quote wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't said 'Come on with me'. He consoles George after Lennie's death and tells George to 'move on' with him. Since George is in a very vulnerable state, he's more susceptible to suggestions.

    (VERY speculative) After George told Slim about the trouble that Lennie got into in Weed, he knew it was only a matter of time before Lennie got himself into trouble again. Slim tested this theory with a puppy. As mentioned before, ("drowned for of them right off" in reference to newborn puppies) Slim has no moral trouble causing the death of animals, even babies. He later sees the results of his test but also sees Curley's wife's dead body. At this very moment, Slim knows that George will take the matter into his own hands as if Lennie was left to the mob, Lennie would surely die a painful death. He purposely leaves George alone during the mob chase to allow George to kill Lennie and later capitalises on George's vulnerability to take Lennie's place as George's close friend. Motivations include loneliness, jealousy and a need for companionship.

    if asked a question about loneliness or slim being "godlike" it could be possible to speculate...?
