"In with a KABOOM!" is an orchestral piece on the Season 3 soundtrack.

Scene description

The Others' book club meeting has just been interrupted by a series of tremors. The whole group walks outside to see what has happened. Ethan reveals his face, and another familiar character walks out of a house. In the air, a plane breaks up.

Ben sends two people to infiltrate the new survivors' camps.

The camera zooms out to show the village we've been looking at is in a valley on the Island.


The piece uses the Others' early theme, their action theme, and their main motif.

Title significance

The name refers to the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, and to the season's dramatic opening.
