Below are spoilers for Season 3:
>! Something very interesting about the hut is that once David and Sydney are in it, they are stuck in it. They are stuck in their maze. And that's because it's paradise and they don't want to leave. !<
But because David is in the maze, he is no longer a threat to Farouk. So, at this point in the show, Farouk's seemingly won. Farouk's opponent, David, is gone. There's no one stopping Farouk from getting his (Farouk's) body back. Farouk has won.
But Farouk goes out of his way to make David leave the maze.
There's diff ways to interpret this. Imo it heavily implies that Farouk doesn't want to 'defeat' David.
