Problem when installing VPT24-1P

Newbie

I am trying to install a Leviton VPT24-1P Digital Timer Switch:

Hi I'm trying to install the timer swtich on the right most light switch of a 3-light switch electric box.
-----------------------------------------------------
Original box setup:

From left to right:

[1] the one i want to replace to timer (Single Pole)
[2]  3-way 
[3]  3-way

The bottom of [1] links to the side screw of [2].
The bottom of [2] links to the side screw of [3].

------------------------------------------------------------
What I did:

I took the top black and wired it to the "Line" (Black)
I took the bottom black and wired it to the "Load" (Red)

Behind the 3 original switch there is a bunch of White and a bunch of Green

I took a random White and wired it to "Netural" (White)
I took a random Green and wired it to "Ground" (Green)

---------------------------------------------------------------
I wired it all but I have the following problems:

- light flickers
- [3] (both switch of the 3-way) controls the power of [1]

--------------------------------------------------------------

Question:

1) how did [3] and its 3-way become controlling [1]
2) why is if flickering... the trouble shoot guide suggest that it maybe the load... but it seemed to hv good connection.

Thanks
