Jesus Christ, 800 words and I'm only four minutes into the episode. Time to get cracking. Jin approaches Sun in the pagoda and gives her a sneaky kiss. She smiles and pulls away a bit, looking around for her father. "He's busy being a host," Jin replies. Sun tells him she wants to go away to America with him; Jin replies that he loves Sun, but doesn't want to elope with her. "Your father would never allow it," he adds, failing to understand the entire concept of eloping. Jin says he will ask Sun's father for her hand in marriage, but Sun thinks it'll never work. "You don't know my father," she protests. Jin produces a pretty white flower, apparently from midair, and says, "I know me." Sun sniffs the flower and says it's beautiful; Jin wishes it were a diamond. To be fair, a diamond would not smell nearly as good. They kiss. Sun looks very pretty in this scene in a pink dress. Jin looks like a monkey in his waiter outfit.
Midsection Beach. Sun looks up from her reverie to see an angry-looking Jin heading down toward the water. He's looking at Mercutio and Walt, who are hanging out by the surf. As Sun calls out, "What's the matter?" Jin charges Mercutio and lays some wicked fucking wood on him, like a linebacker-quality tackle. As Mercutio protests, Jin throws him onto his back and starts punching him. Slow motion reveals that in about half the shots of this fight, the continuity people failed to put the watch that we'll later find out is the cause of this whole thing on the stuntman's wrist. Walt leaps at Jin, who pushes him away. Then for a solid twenty seconds, Jin punches Mercutio and shoves his head underwater while not one of the ten nearby castaways rushes in to break it up. They're all waiting for someone with a speaking role to do something. Meanwhile, Sun screams in Korean and Walt screams in English. Walt's screaming the usual -- "Get off him," "Stop it," "He never did anything to you except stare at your wife's naked breasts for like an hour" -- while Sun, according to my friend Denny who speaks Korean, screams, "Jin! No! You are taking our discussion of an S&M threesome with [Mercutio] too far! Surely he has used the safe word by now! The safe word is 'ow'!"
After the commercials, Sayid and Sawyer come running to Mercutio's aid. Sayid lays another vicious hit on Jin. Were this a football game, that hit would have forced a fumble. A fumble in the jungle! I have to say, other than the glitch with the watch, this is a fantastically-shot fight scene. Splashy and messy and cool. Sayid puts some kind of a wrestling or law-enforcement neck hold on Jin and asks Sawyer for the handcuffs. Funnily enough, Sawyer has them waiting in his pocket. They handcuff Jin to a kind of pipe connected to the landing gear and Sayid asks Sun, "What happened?" She stares stonily back at him.
