For all you "haters", just wait until the show is cancelled and I'll tell you what episodes you need to watch in order to get the "mythology." It's just getting old to come in and bitch about the same television shows week after week. If you don't like it that much, don't watch it. Go pull out some Star Trek: TNG DVDs or catch up on Dancing With the Stars. There's a difference in being critical and being annoying.
But, truthfully, I'm not defending this episode per se. It was pretty bad.
