I am so, so sad to say it, but I have a bad feeling Sayid may be one of the characters who does not ultimately find redemption.

It's difficult to come to the realization that some of my favorite charactes probably won't find a happy ending!

wow... i think you may have totally missed the "rebirth" idea at the end of episode. He dies and is reborn.
