it was right next to him My theory is that his arm glows because it's now a key to unlock the grand temple. It's also probably got some badass moves.

After he hugged him goodbye http://media.ubi.com/us/forum_images/gf-glomp.gif

Or tried to get him deleted. That scene didn't make sense.

Judging from how Subject 16 acted, I wouldn't be surprised if that hug to save him from dissolving is related to the blue/teal color on Desmond's arms.

He himself said he was saving Desmond. The island was "scheduled for deletion" as he said. He held Desmond to make sure he wouldn't be deleted as well and then threw him through the gate before Desmond got deleted along with S16.

Yeah I know he mentioned the whole deletion thing, but I thought it would have just made sense to send him back immediately. Suppose it isn't cinematic enough just telling him to GTFO.

Like Lightrey said.

Also, they were trying to give off the appearance that 16 was thinking of stealing or hitching a ride along in Desmonds body.

Just for a bit of drama before he tossed him in.

I don't get how he helped prevent Desmond's deletion. In get that it was his intent, but if you look closely 16 himself is beginning to disintegrate, so how would he help maintain Desmond's avatar's cohesion?

Maybe I'm just nit-picking...

I can be wrong but I assume that S16 "passed" onto Desmond some kind of protective shield so to speak, the same shield that most likely helped him to stay "alive" within the Black Box, assuming it was NOT the first time that some stuff was scheduled to be deleted.

I would think this is the case too. He was a programmer and as we can see from what he left inside the Animus and from some of the things he said in ACR he was able to manipulate it quite well before and after his (physical) death.
