"Alex in Chains" is an orchestral piece on the Season 5 soundtrack. It plays as Ben kidnaps baby Alex.

Scene description

Ben has just entered Rousseau's tent, discovering baby Alex. While Rousseau screams at him, Ben picks up the baby, firing his gun to keep the mother back. He warns her never to come after him. And he tells her to flee whenever she heard whispers.

In the present, Ben searches through his office on Hydra Island and finds a picture of him with Alex.


The piece begins with Danielle's theme, which quickly weaves into Ben's theme. The two play both together and separately before it ends on a statement of Ben's theme combined with the Rousseaus' theme.

Title significance

The title likely references the band Alice in Chains. When it plays, Alex is kidnapped.
