"Eko of the Past" is an orchestral piece on the Season 3 soundtrack. The brooding ascending minor second followed by a falling minor second, represents particularly the brutish side of Eko's past.

Main appearance

Eko dreams of the events from "The 23rd Psalm". When he wakes up, he sees Yemi standing over him, saying it is time for Eko's confession, and he will be waiting somewhere for him.

Sayid and Charlie notice that Eko's tent is on fire. They drag him from it. When they look back a little later though, Eko is gone.
