The says himself the reason he made the deal was that they convinced him they had his friend, that's not him wanting to help. He knew he was betraying the group, betraying is a harsh word i admit, but the closest to being accurate.
Ultimately though i dropped him because he was the grim reaper to anyone around him, and had caused some very avoidable deaths of good people, sometimes through fuck ups and others out of cowardice, so i thought i'd take the decision to protect everyone else over protecting him.
Ultimately in hindsight since him being around in episode 5 doesn't cause any more deaths than him being dead im more inclined to keep around (although i still dislike him), but especially with 5 being the last episode i couldn't have known that at the time.
It was actually the decision i took the longest to make in the game, had to pause it for some time.
