"A New Trade" is an orchestral piece on the Season 2 soundtrack. It plays at the end of "One of Them".

Main appearance

Sayid talks to Charlie about having tortured Henry Gale. He says he knows Henry is one of them because he felt no guilt when he tortured him. He reminds Charlie of what he suffered at their hands.

Full list of appearances

The motif that closes the piece, called the "distrust motif," plays during the following scenes:

  • The survivors leave Kate after learning she is a fugitive. ("Born to Run")
  • Sayid reminds Charlie of what the Others did to him and Claire. ("One of Them")


Before ending on a new motif which first played in Born to Run, most of the piece plays a variation on Sayid's theme.

Title significance

In the scene before the scene plays, Inman tells Sayid that his time working with the Americans has given him a new skill — torture.
