The door is kicked in and American soldiers capture the Iraqi soldiers. Their SGT Buccelli wants to know who is in charge. One of the new prisoners speaks English Sayid. When Sayid says there is no commanding officer present, the soldier senses Sayid is lying, and knocks him out with his rifle's butt. Sayid is taken aside by Sam Austen, Kate's father, for questioning and asked where the commander, Tariq, is. But Sayid, as a loyal member of the Republican Guard, tells the Americans that Tariq fled to WikiPediaAl Hillah long before they arrived. The Americans lead him into a room, where he finds Tariq, tied to a chair in front of him. Sayid is used as translator for the interrogation of his own commanding officer. The Americans are looking for a missing helicopter pilot and they know Tariq can lead them to him. Tariq refuses to cooperate, ordering Sayid in Arabic to steal the guard's gun and shoot as many of the Americans as he can. Sayid doesn't do this, but tells the Americans simply that Tariq doesn't have their answer. {{I=2X14-JoeInman.jpg=left=200=Joe Inman introduces himself to Sayid.}} Sayid is introduced to a Joe Inman who tells him it is very important they find the missing helicopter pilot, but he knows Tariq will never talk to him. He plays a WikiPediaDefense Intelligence Agency video tape, which shows a village of people dying from a sarin gas attack that was ordered by Tariq. The man knows that Sayid had family in that village. Sayid, feeling betrayed, agrees to interrogate Tariq. The American officer hands Sayid a large box. Sayid's Theme|♪ Sayid begins to interrogate Tariq, who is incredulous that Sayid is working with the Americans. After a period of time, in which Sayid interrogates and tortures Tariq, he walks out of the interrogation room, and has the information from Tariq the American pilot was executed 2 days ago. He hands the box to the American officer. His hands are bloody. {{I=2X14-SayidLastFlashback.jpg=right=200="''One of them''"}} Sayid is in the back of a military transport with several soldiers, one of whom, Sgt. Austen, holds a picture of Kate. Sayid is driven down a deserted road in the Iraqi desert. Inman takes Sayid out of the transport, telling him the Americans are pulling out of Iraq. He says he thinks Sayid is lucky now that he gained a new skill that he can use. Sayid tells him he would never torture anyone again. Inman suddenly begins speaking in Arabic, telling him that one day, there will be something he will need to know - and now he knows how to get it. Inman hands Sayid the box, gives him $1000 to get back to Ramadi, and leaves. Sayid's Motif|♪ === On the Island === {{I=Henrygettingcaught.jpg=200=left="Henry Gale" caught in Rousseau's net trap}} On the Island, Ana Lucia comes to Sayid and tells him she saw "The Others" near the camp. She and Sayid track the person, but Sayid recognizes the person as Danielle Rousseau. He tells her to go back to their camp, and orders her not to tell anyone about what she saw. Sayid jumps in front of Danielle, asking what she is doing here. She says that she is looking for him. She leads him through the jungle to a clearing, where there is Ben hanging in a net from a tree and calling for help. He claims to be Henry Gale (original), from Minnesota. Danielle warns Sayid not to free him, and tells him he should not believe any word Henry says. Sayid cuts him down, and as Gale tries to escape, Rousseau shoots him in the back with a crossbow, purposely missing his heart. She is convinced that Gale is an "Other," and she tells Sayid to take him back to their doctor. Sayid ties him up, and she tells him that Gale "''will lie, for a long time... he will lie.''" Danielle's Theme|♪ {{I=2X14TreeFrog.jpg=right=200=The Tree Frog}} Meanwhile, Sawyer is irritated by the loud chirping sounds made by a Tree Frog. Sawyer asks Jin if he hears it too, but Jin does not answer, angry after what happened The Long Con. He heads off into the jungle and comes across Hurley, eating from his personal stash of food. Sawyer says he will not say anything to anyone about Hurley's stash's hidden stash if Hurley helps him find the frog. During their trekking journey, Sawyer keeps calling Hurley in different nicknames, each one of them has something to do with Hurley being overweight. Hurley's temper eventually heats up and he tells Sawyer that even though he is fat, people still like him, while nobody likes Sawyer. Sawyer apologizes and Hurley decides to continue the journey with him. Eventually, Hurley and Sawyer find the frog. Hurley tries to reason with Sawyer promising to take the frog to another part of the island, but Sawyer crushes it in his hand.
{{I=2X14-SayidLocke.jpg=left=200=Sayid convinces Locke to change the combination }} In the Swan, Sayid wakes Locke up and tells him Gale's story. Sayid tells Gale he has to calm down, and then asks him some questions. Gale claims to have crashed his balloon on the Island, that his wife died after she got sick, three weeks ago. According to Gale, they were staying in a cave off the beach. Jack arrives and removes the arrow from Gale's shoulder. Sayid takes Locke aside and convinces him to change the combination on the armory door so that he can interrogate Gale without Jack's interference. They trick Jack into bringing Gale into the armory, and Sayid shuts the door as Jack and Locke walk out. While Jack is banging on the door asking Sayid what he is doing, Sayid replies quietly "''what needs to be done''." {{I=2X14-SayidIsland.jpg=right=200="''My name is Sayid Jarrah and I am a torturer.''"}} Jack and Locke argue about the combination on the door and Jack's plans to start an Survivors' army. Locke says that Jack raised an army because they are at war so whatever Sayid is doing with Gale is part of it too. In the armory, Sayid questions Gale about his life on in island on the last 4 months. He also asks about Jennifer Gale, and Gale reveals she died when she suddenly got the Sickness. He says it started as a fever, and after two days she was delirious and died. He asks to know who Sayid is, so Sayid tells him about his military career, about the things he did he wishes he could erase from his memory. He introduces himself with "''My name is Sayid Jarrah, and I am a torturer.''" {{I=2X14-SayidPunchingHenry.jpg=left=200="''You would remember!''"}} Jack is cleaning up Gale's blood, and argues more with Locke. Sayid continues his interrogation about the balloon and Gale's wife. Gale claims that he "was rich", after he sold his non-metallic minerals mining company. Sayid asks about his wife's grave the location, "''How deep? How many shovelfuls of earth? Did you use your hands? How long did it take you?"'' When Gale does not know what to answer, Sayid becomes violent, and begins beating him severely. Sayid claims he would remember how deep that grave is, if he would really have buried the woman he loved. He would remember - if it were true. Gale asks if Sayid lost someone he loved on the Island, and Sayid only says that it was an accident, and that the Ana Lucia who accidentally killed Shannon thought she was "the Others, someone like you Gale." {{I=2X14-JackLocke.jpg=right=200=Jack prevents Locke from push the button}} Sayid punches Gale in his face over and over, while Gale begs him to stop. Gale's screams lead Jack to force Locke to open the armory door, just as the Countdown Timer begins to sound. Jack says if Locke would not open the door, he will not let Locke push the button. Locke does not believe Jack will risk everybody's life on the Island, but Jack says he does not believe anything will happen if the button is not pushed. Locke eventually opens the door, and rushes to enter the Numbers and push the button, but his fingers trip over themselves and does not get them entered in time. {{I=Flipping Hieroglyphs.JPG=left=200=Hieroglyphs flipping on the countdown timer}} As the timer hits zero, hieroglyphs appear in place of the Numbers, and what sounds like a generator begins to fire up. Locke finally enters the code, and presses the button. The sound dies down and the timer returns to 108. Meanwhile, Jack stops Sayid beating Ben, but Sayid is convinced that Gale is one of them, although his reasoning does not satisfy Jack. Gale thanks Jack and before the armory's door is closed on him, shows some kind of a smile. On the beach, Sayid is telling Charlie his story, and claims that he knows Gale is an "Other" because he felt no guilt for what he did. He tells Charlie that it seems everybody has forgot what the Others did to them -- how they abducted Claire or All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues. {{I=2X14-CharlieSayid.jpg=right=200=''"So tell me Charlie... have '''you''' forgotten?"''}} He asks Charlie if he too, has forgotten. A New Trade|♪Sayid's Theme|♪ ==Trivia== * Although it is believed that Sarin gas was used by Iraqi forces in the Iraq-Iran war, there is no record of its use in the Gulf War, within Iraq or otherwise. * The first appearance of hieroglyphics in the series occurs in this episode when the Swan countdown timer gets past zero. * This episode is rated TV-14-V. ==Production notes== * Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) appears without speaking lines. * This episode marks the first appearance of Michael Emerson as Ben, although he is credited only as a guest star throughout the remainder of Season 2 when he is still known as "Henry Gale." He earns main cast status at the start of Season 3. * It also marks the first appearance of Clancy Brown (Kelvin Inman). *Sam Austen is seen holding a picture of his daughter, Kate while transporting Sayid in the military truck. This is a photo of a young Evangeline Lilly. * The cast are not credited in alphabetical order. Michelle Rodriguez is credited before Harold Perrineau. **This has been changed for the DVD release. ===Bloopers and continuity errors=== *When Sayid first confronts Danielle there is a moving microphone visible for a second behind Danielle's head when Sayid says the words "What are you doing here Danielle?" *During the scene where Jack is demanding that John open the safe door, we get a glimpse of the countdown timer reaching 10 seconds left. The camera then cuts away while Jack is seen pulling Sayid off of Henry and we then see John frantically entering in the code. When the clock is shown next, it is down to 2 seconds left. However, even if the developers were trying to show us the two separate scenes as one consecutive time lapse, it still took John roughly 13 seconds to enter in the code starting from the time he got to the computer to when he looks up at the timer showing 2 seconds left; it obviously should have only taken 8 seconds. ===Music=== The Lost Season 2 (Original Television Soundtrack)'s closing music as "A New Trade", the first statement of "Sayid's Theme" to appear on a soundtrack release. ==Analysis== === Recurring themes === {{NavMinor-RecurringThemes}} *Kate's father, Sgt.

Babar is a young elephant who undergoes many challenges and adventures, but always finds the strength to rise above difficulty and search out every cloud's silver lining. {{crossref}} *'''''The Wonderful Wizard of Oz''''' "Henry" says that he became stranded on the Island after his hot-air balloon went off course and took him there. This is a direct reference to the 1939 film ''wikipediaThe Wizard of Oz (1939 film)'', where the main character, a girl named Dorothy Gale, dreams she has become lost in a fantastical world after her house is sent there during a tornado, many points of which have a parallel within the world of ''Lost''. The movie was based on the wikipediaThe Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Frank Baum. Frank Baum (1900). {{crossref}} *Henry Gale is the name of Dorothy's uncle in the 1939 film. *The famous "Wizard of Oz" arrived in the Land of Oz when his hot-air balloon took him there by mistake. He too, like ''Lost'''s "Henry", comes to live in a community that exists in a strange location where its inhabitants seem to stand out from their surroundings. *'''''wikipediaWhat's Happening!!’s Happening!!''''' Sawyer calls Hurley "Rerun." Fred "Rerun" Stubbs was a heavyset character on this TV show, which aired from 1976 through 1979. {{crossref}} {{brclear}} ===Literary techniques=== {{NavMinor-LiteraryTechniques}} *Henry Gale is described as "one of them", being one of the Others, whilst Sayid is "one of them", helping the Americans. {{crossref}} *As Jack reminds Sayid, Rousseau once tied him up and tortured him out of her belief that he was "one of them". {{crossref}} *Sayid says Claire was kidnapped, and "god only knows what happened to her" during that time.
