Again this episode wasnt what I wanted. you mean most manipulative? misleading? keep in mind Jin's flashbacks served no purpose but to be a red herring they had nothing to do with the story being told, it's bad writing. They can't justify showing that.
Try watching the episode again and not getting irritated knowing he's buying a panda for a stranger.
And whats with the children's comedy music going on during that slapstick scene with the cell phone?
gimme a break ridiculous, waste of LOST-time Hopefully next weeks will be better, and carry us through til April. Again just prey it gets better.
