"Bon Voyage, Traitor" is an orchestral piece on the Season 2 soundtrack. It plays as Michael leaves the Island.

Scene description

The survivors pick up the pieces at their camp following the Discharge. Charlie returns to camp and expresses surprise that Locke and Eko aren't yet back.

At the Pala ferry, Ben instructs Michael on how to leave the Island. He finds Walt in the boat the Others provided. Bea Klugh sends Hurley back to the beach. Michael steers away in the ship as Jack, Kate, and Sawyer look on, bound and gagged.

Full list of appearances


The first movement is a variation of Desmond's theme. The second movement blends the Others' main motif with Ben's theme before leading into the Others' theme. Ben's theme returns, followed by Desmond's theme and then Ben's theme again. It ends on its own motif.

Title significance

Michael betrayed the other survivors. Before he leaves, Ben wishes him "Bon Voyage." Michael leaves by boat, making the naval phrase particularly appropriate.
