Darkest episode of LOST ever? Quite possibly. "Sundown," was a wonderful title because it had many meanings, including the obvious one from the context of the episode. However, I think it also had that wonderful double meaning of the sundown in Sayid's "scale" between good and evil, and a possible sundown for the tone of the series as a whole.
The episode was one of those kickass actioners you usually only see once a season (i.e. "Homecoming," for season 1, "The Shape of Things to Come," for season 4) and did it deliver. I don't think that even "The Shape of Things to Come" had such a dramatic impact as "Sundown" did. Sure, nobody really major died (Sayid's soul notwithstanding), but the character development in this episode remained really, really strong (as it was in last week's "Lighthouse" and the week before's "The Substitute"). Sayid was developed in his descent down into darkness, and I hope there's some redemption for him in either this universe or the other.
