Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)
I watched season 1. Your man from veronica mars appears, turns out to be this big bad guy, disappears for about 6 episodes, reappears to tell jim caviezel he is back at the end of an episode and then disappears for another 6 episodes.
Amy Ackers arc only lasted 3 episodes as well.
Those flashbacks add nothing from what I saw and there wasn't any real over-arcing story and 90% of it is pure fluff of jim saving some random.
