I listened to The Labyrinth recently, and it got me thinking. What is the darkest Odyssey episode? Obviously The Labyrinth is up there, as well as Mortal Coil, Black Veil, Castles and Cauldrons, and My Girl, Hallie. All of them have dark moments.
The Labyrinth has the finale with Grote, Mortal Coil has the scene with Eugene, Black Veil is self-explanatory, as are C&C and My Girl, Hallie. Obviously the quality standard is huge, with The Labyrinth and Mortal Coil at the top of Odyssey’s episodes and C&C near the bottom. I would say my choice would be The Labyrinth. What is yours?

I would actually reverse that list, with C&C at the top, "The Case of the Mysterious Stranger" right below that, and "The Case of the Secret Room" below that. I'll put some thinking into it! :)

I think C&C is the all-time champion as far as darkness goes. I was always uncomfortable with it, strongly enough that I didn't listen to it for probably a decade after hearing it when I was younger, and when I most recently did as an 'adult' (since it was so long ago I didn't remember it), it was every bit what I'd always thought it was. Other episodes have dark moments but I don't think any of them are as much so all the way through. (As far as quality goes, I'm not sure if it isn't a relatively recent trend in the AIO online community that C&C is nearly unanimously considered a terrible two-parter; in the plus-minus ranking games that someone ran on the ToO a few years back, I think it actually did quite well.)

Mysterious Stranger and the like are going to get mentions and that's reasonable (who wasn't scared or at least unnerved by the end of part 1?). That said, I'd nominate a few radio episodes that I think a lot of people aren't likely to think about:

* The Telltale Cat - I actually heard this episode when it aired. I don't remember being traumatized by it at the time, but even if it isn't creepy, the plot centers around David attempting to kill Mandy's cat. It was discontinued for that reason. FotF didn't discontinue any other episodes just for being dark, that I know of, so certainly this has to be up there.

* No Boundaries - The only reason why people don't count it is because it was in the Room of Consequence. But if you were unfortunate enough to tune in a little late when it aired in '00, you would have had a horrifying story about Alex Jefferson, one of the series' main kid protagonists at that point, turning to crime, killing his best friend, and ending up paralyzed, in vivid detail.

* Two Roads - Two characters die and go to Hell.

* Finally, a mention to a more recent two-parter I haven't ever heard: "The Perfect Church". Frankly, I haven't heard it because I've been actually afraid to listen to it. When just the plot summary is intimidating, I think that's got to count for something.

The Labyrinth literally ends with Jason stopping someone from murdering in cold blood. Just saying, that still gives me chills.

My Girl Hallie left its mark. Honestly, all the Twilife zone episodes were pretty traumatizing. I love that AIO went there though. The dark episodes will always be some of my favorites.

Have you guys forgotten all about Blakggards Revenge? (IDK if I spelled his name right.) That had some dark parts in it too.
