"Sundown" is an orchestral piece from the Season 6 soundtrack. It plays during the Temple massacre.

Scene description

Sayid kills Dogen, and he slits Lennon's throat soon after.The Smoke Monster then invades the Temple, killing everyone in its path and causing havoc. Kate and Miles rush to escape but are separated when Kate goes to rescue Claire. The Smoke Monster sweeps into the chamber forcing Kate to grab the rope steps and dangle while it barrels over her.

Meanwhile, Miles tries to barricade himself in a store room. Ilana, Frank, Sun and Ben break through, and Ben heads for the spring to find Sayid. Ben tells him to come with him but sees the bodies of Dogen and Lennon and runs off in fear.

Back in the passageway, Miles tells Sun he saw Jin. Ilana opens a passage allowing the group to escape just before the Monster thunders down the passageway.


The Temple theme plays early on. A bit of Jacob's Theme plays and the Temple theme returns.

The monster's second motif starts a later movement, and its first motif plays later, followed by some music that does not play in the episode. The main theme then plays, followed immediately by Kate's theme. The main theme plays again, and the second motif closes the piece.
