The "Original Sawyer's Theme" plays during several scenes featuring James Ford's quest to kill the "original Sawyer". The disquieting four-note piano theme is based on three repeated intervals of a major sixth and then another, a major second up.

    • He gives him his letter. Cooper rips it up. ("The Brig")
