Oh wait, I have a either a nit to pick or a point to ponder. Is it just me, or is there a day's difference in the Sideways timeline between Sayid's episode and this one? Sayid came to L.A. on 9/22/2004. Omer (not Omar) got jumped on 9/23. Sayid didn't get grabbed by Omar (not Omer) until at least 9/24. Unless Jin and Sun spent upwards of 36 hours in Customs, which seems unlikely, then Jin and Sun arrived in L.A. on 9/22 and by the time Customs released them and they settled in at the hotel, it was 11:30 PM on 9/22. Keamy grabbed them on the morning of 9/23, sending Sun to the bank with Mikhail and taking Jin to the restaurant. When Sun and Mikhail return from the bank, Sayid has already shot up the restaurant and Jin has escaped from the walk-in. I hate like hell to think the show was so careless about frigging TIMELINES at this late date, but this week, I'm nearly fresh out of faith. My only half-assed theory is this: Widmore says Zoe grabbed Jin ahead of schedule. Perhaps, by acting too quickly, Jin's Island kidnapping had a ripple effect on the Sideways Reality. Do I just need a good clue-sticking, or am I onto something? What do you think?
I'm ending it here, this week, because in his off hours, shirtless Jin keeps his shoes under our bed in the forums, where we have champagne on ice, and will never open the door to Martin "Die Hardest" Keamy -- not while our moderator staff still breathes.

Cindy McLennan enjoyed aspects of the ride this week, but she felt every pothole, and may need her shocks replaced, yet the only mechanic in town is played by Jeff Kober, so screw that. Let her know what you think at CynthiaMcLennan[at]gmail.com, or follow her on Twitter.
