Night Currency For Carrying Passengers - can a pilot, whom is NOT night current, carry passengers between the end of civil twilight (FAR Part 1.1 Night “Begins“ Definition) and one hour after sunset, legally?

Yes, that is legal.  Whether it's a good idea or not is something you'd have to think about based on your proficiency and the chance that you'd get caught in the air when the clock runs out.  If anyone asked me about the wisdom of this, I would say that unless you are both 61.57(b)-current and night proficient, prudence suggests planning to be on the ground no more than 30 minute after sunset.
