I get that the game scenes are really more about Jin figuring stuff out, but I was enjoying Jack and his approach. When he walked out of the pitch meeting I definitely had a bad feeling. And Benedict Wong's detective can't even see him getting murdered looking through glass walls with binoculars, so there's more going on than just video footage getting erased.

Poor Samwell Tarly made it past the wall, down to Oldtown and back, but cant' survive a hard sell timeshare presentation.

I was also enjoying Jack and his approach. It felt sad and unfair that his role has ended.

Jack was my favorite. This show needs his comic relief.

I'm not necessarily sad that Jack is gone - he was a lout who made me ask "why is any one of these people friends with him?" whenever he had a scene. BUT he also had an actual defined personality which seems mostly absent in the rest of the core ensemble. Shruggie

It was a bit weird how the game playing was dealt with so quickly. The game seemed to go on forever in the book (from what I can recall.)

Well, he definitely had an extremely high-energy, attention-seeking, personality, anyway. Everyone else just seem to be regular people. I won't miss Jack. He seemed to be an invader from another tv series. Felt out-of-place.
