Sayid asks Dogen why he wanted to kill him and they fight; Dogen banishes Sayid from the temple. Meanwhile Locke and Claire head to the temple and Claire tells Dogen that Locke want to see him outside the temple. Sogen asks Sayid to kill Locke to prove that there is goodness in his soul. Kate returns to the temple and Miles tells her that Claire is prisoner in the temple. Kate tells to Claire that she raised Aaron in Los Angeles. Sayid stabs Locke in the chest but he does not feel anything. Locke asks Sayid to tell Dogen and his people that they have until the sundown to leave the temple. Sayid destroys the only protection of the temple. In the parallel reality, Sayid visits Nadia and her husband Omer, who tells him that he has been pressed by dangerous people from whom he borrowed money. Omer is stabbed and goes on surgery.

Extra-televisual experience, intense and well designed action scenes, immersive dark fantasy story, very convincing acting, masterful direction and writing
3 March 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I've just seen a UFO ! Right on my TV. Sundown was an Unidentified Airing Episode. The very first minutes were so intense that it felt like watching a completely different show. Was it Lost or Found ? I'm not sure but it definitely succeeded in touching both my heart and soul. The story was so well written, weird and dark that it was like reading a Lovecraft short for the first time. It began with a dynamic fight between two characters and it was so well choreographed that it reminded me of Jackie Chan's best work. The stunt men and martial artists also did a very impressive job.

This time Sayid was featured and his arcs were both excellent but for once the island one was even better than the urban one. Better ? It's a miserable word to describe it because terms like awesome and amazing would be more appropriate. Awesomazing ? Definitely ! John Locke was smoking, more than in LA X and The Substitute, and even Kate dirty hotness couldn't rival with him. Terry O'Quinn dead calm acting was fascinating and disturbing. Naveen Andrews (Sayid) also did a very convincing job and Freckles was irresistible as always. Bobby Roth's direction was fierce and it seems he made his best to show the performers how much this episode was important to him. It was definitely pivotal and as surreal as the few twisted ideas I wrote at the end of my What Kate Does episode review. That's why I wasn't surprise to learn that Paul Zbyszewski wrote it because he also worked on Follow the Leader, an episode I consider by far the best of season 5. In fact he collaborated with Graham Roland, a new team member, who previously worked on Prison Break. Maybe that's why Sundown was so puzzling.

The ambiance was as frightening as in the season 1 pilot and it really seemed like the beginning of the end. The daylight scenes were already unpredictable and strained. But once they turned off the lights, the black order turned into a white chaos. A 15 ft high tyrannosaurus ripped everyone apart. Later Romero's zombies came to have a feast at the guests expense. It's on the cabin an ogre groaned but it was already too late because the Invasion of the Body Snatchers had already begun. To sum things up, it was The Constant the 6th and finale season needed to establish itself as the ultimate evolution of televisual madness.
