There *is* such an option.  Go to the "watch recordings" menu and
navigate to the episode you want to keep.  Activate the pop-up menu and
select "don't auto expire".  That flag applies only the the selected
episode without changing your preference for the recording rule so later
episodes will be expired normally.
