My issue with the direction they are heading with Adam is that in Within These Walls Adam said he would not keep things from the team. If they shared the risks they should be able to share in the information. So in Lest He Become when he was keeping things from the team, to me it was like the writers forgot about that part of Within these walls.

I hear ya Shalgal.
But you could make an argument for Adam's reasoning in "Lest He Become". Because Adam knew how much it would hurt them to tell them the truth, and their safety didn't depend on knowing that particular bit of info, he decided it might be better to keep it from them. And he was so deeply ashamed that maybe he couldn't face telling them in spite of his promise.
More likely though the writers conveniently forgot about his promise to the team in "Within These Walls" in favor of turning our perception of Adam and the show upsidedown.
My theory is that the writers convently forgot, but I think honesty is the best policy and would have at least hoped Adam would tell the team the truth because they needed to know Adam's exact involvement. How else are you susposed to follow and trust someone the way the MX team had to trust Adam?
