Because Dex hopes to escape Earth to some orbital station, where Arasaka would not be able to get him. He makes a call about single seat in a shuttle if V waits a bit instead of going to bathroom in Dex' room. He only needs few hours of time to get out of reach of Arasaka (orbital stations, as we know from certain texts in the game, are independant territories where local rulers reign supreme, controlling everything on board). He calculates that during those few hours, being together with V - a person who most likely was seen by witnesses in Konpeki at very least - much increases chances Arasaka would trace him before he leaves the planet. At least, i would in his shoes.but why would dex think he is going to be in a better situation against the "cia" by killing the last lead? If he helped V escape, at least he'd have some type of leverage with Arasaka. Hind sight says he survived as long as they didnt have V in custody.

I disagree, I think its likely that Takemura was specifically not supposed to be hunting V. Yorinobu wants takemura not to question Saburo's death, and focus instead on protecting the new head.
Hunting V doesn't help yorinobu's real goals, and yorinobu is specifically trying to get the relic into hands other than Arasaka (and possibly ressurect johnny). Having a nameless assassin no one ever finds is the thing most likely to achieve all of yorinobu's goals.
Once Yorinobu sees Takemura has found V, only then are great efforts made to deal with him, and Yorinobu's attacks are always focused on Takemura.
Takemura was _specifically_ _ordered_ by Yorinobu to find V. This:
See, Takemura says: "Arasaka-sama, i've found your father's killer". Takemura would never report the finding right away to Yorinobu, unless having direct order. As we learn in the game, Takemura himself despises Yorinobu for starting all the internal struggle in Arasaka. If Takemura would be acting all on his own, he'd at very least interrogate V 1st, before even considering to call Yorinobu about it.
And just few lines later, Takemura also says to Yorinobu there: "Yes. I expect to be there in one hour". Means, at this time, he takes orders from Yorinobu about where to move V. Note: in japanese, the word Takemura used - "hi!" - is only loosely "yes" in english. In actual japanese, this word is much more like "I understood and i obey!" sort of expression.
And yet in this same video, 5:30 mark, Takemura asks V if she knows any Ripperdoc, for medical attention. This means, at this point, Takemura is already stripped of all his Arasaka privileges. He's already betrayed by Yorinobu and being hunted by whole Arasaka. Otherwise, he'd just go and get "top notch medical care" - much like it happens to another high-rank bodyguard, Oda, after V defeats him.
Those are some, but far not all, of the deets based on which i base above version of Takemura's behaviour.

"A relic"? Just "a" one? Hellman's conversation says otherwise. Hellman confirms it's Relic 2.0 in V's head, and much elaborates about it, if to follow all the blue lines and yellow "gimme more details" kind of lines.the document you are referring to, are notes on a relic that never succeeded. Not with dead. nor alive subjects.
So obviously the relic in V's situation did not behave the same way it did in previous tests.
You can't refer to a document that says relic always fails. as an explanation of how it succeeds.
Its unknown exactly why, or how, if V died, or if he lived, how much brain was Johnny or V at any given moment during the story.
And this shard - it doesn't just say "never succeeded". The text is quite a bit longer than that. And for good reason: namely, it tells much more detailed story than just "never succeeded". Which details are quite important to me. If not to you - it's OK, it's just a game, yep.
