Bernard Nadler is a tail section survivor of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 and the husband of Rose. He is the only tail section survivor that has not been killed, captured, or assimilated in to the Others. He wasn't seated in the tail section, and was only there when the plane crashed because he was using the bathroom then. Bernard cares very much for Rose and feels a need to fix things, like her cancer, not dissimilar to Jack.

On the Island
Season 2 (Days 1-67)
Bernard was very worried about Rose after he could not find her or her body anywhere on the beach. As the tail-section survivors were kidnapped by attacks from the Others over the following weeks, Bernard found himself among the few remaining. Bernard was one of the few tail section survivors, or Tailies, to meet Michael, Jin, and Sawyer from the middle section along with Ana-Lucia, Mr. Eko, Libby and Cindy.
Bernard and the Tailies found the Arrow station and used it for shelter and protection from the Others, who had taken many of the survivors. In the Arrow, Bernard found a working radio. He used it and unknowingly came in contact with fellow crash survivor Boone, who was in the drug smugglers' plane on the other side of the Island and received his transmission. Bernard later gave the radio to Hurley.
Later, Bernard and the other Tailies caught Sawyer, Michael, and Jin and held them in a pit. After they found out they weren't Others, they returned to the Arrow with the Tailies. Bernard opened the door for Ana-Lucia and everyone else, at the Arrow. Bernard later approached Sawyer, Michael, and Jin and asked if there is a woman named Rose where they came from. Bernard was elated when Michael and Sawyer told him that Rose was still alive on the other side of the Island. (2x04)
The next day, the Tailies decided to go to the middle section camp. Before the long hike, Bernard, Ana-Lucia, and Jin tried to catch fish, with Jin being the only successful fisherman in the group. They then began the long trek. (2x05) (2x06)
Upon approaching the middle section camp, Ana-Lucia accidentally shot and killed Shannon, and demanded that Bernard and everyone else not to go back to camp. Later, Bernard asked if he can go and see his wife, however Ana-Lucia replied, "How long have I kept you alive out here, Bernard?" Eventually, Bernard, Jin, and Libby made it back to the camp, and Bernard finally reunited with Rose after 50 days apart. The pair attended Shannon's funeral together and poured a handful of sand into her grave with the other Losties. (2x08) (2x09)
Two weeks later, a bickering Rose and Bernard, who were arguing about forgetting Rose's birthday, were concerned to stumble upon a sick Sun, who was later revealed to be suffering from morning sickness. Bernard and Rose asked if she is alright, but Sun told them she was just light-headed. Later, Bernard tried to communicate with Jin to ask for an oyster for Rose's birthday. Bernard was with Sawyer when he tried to tell Jin that Sun was pregnant, making him one of the first to know about this. (2x16)
Following the DHARMA food drop, Rose took leadership and organized the food. Bernard even commented that she was acting like she had "just got back from the store". After this, Bernard came up with an idea of making an SOS sign to be spotted by aircraft flying overhead. Bernard gathered a group together for a meeting in which he told them that they have given up in getting rescued. Unfortunately, Rose interrupted Bernard and told him he should confer with Jack. Bernard began to get angry, and told her that Jack is only a doctor. Rose then embarrassed Bernard in front of the group by telling him he's only a dentist. (2x19)
Only 15 people came to help build the SOS sign, and Rose didn't help either. Bernard delegated himself the easy job of marking the letters in the sand, while everyone else dragged heavy rocks to the shore. Afterwards, Bernard told Rose about people not helping and asked her why she wasn't supporting him. They began to argue and Bernard told her, "If I didn't always have to do something you wouldn't be here." Rose then walked away, and Bernard seemed to realize that he was out of line. After Bernard criticized Jin's method of building the sign, Jin left the project, and Bernard was now on his own. Rose then approached Bernard and apologized, and told him that Isaac didn't heal her. However, Rose claimed to believe that the Island did heal her, and that if she left this place, the cancer might return. Bernard told her that they’ll never leave, and the two embraced lovingly. (2x19)
During the discharge, Bernard held his ears. Just after, Bernard moved Claire and Aaron to safety, helping them to avoid being hit by the quarantine door. Later, Bernard helped clean up the mess (made from the discharge), when Charlie came out of the jungle. Bernard asked what happened and if he was okay. (2x23)
Season 3 (Days 68-91)
Following the implosion of the Swan station and the capture of Jack, Kate, and Sawyer, Bernard and Rose became less active among the survivors than they were before. At one point, Sawyer stole a Phil Collins tape from Bernard to give to Kate as a "mixtape". (3x17)
When Karl and Juliet informed the survivors of the imminent attack of the Others, a plan was made to fight back. Rousseau retrieved dynamite from the Black Rock and Rose and Bernard searched through the plane wreckage to find wire for detonating the dynamite. The pieces of wire had to be strongly knotted together into longer lengths, which Bernard seemed to have trouble doing well. Rose, who was much more successful at the task, showed Bernard how to knot them correctly. When the survivors realized they needed three shooters to detonate the dynamite, Bernard volunteered and proved his shooting skill to Rose and Sayid by shooting cans of DHARMA food. (3x21)
Before leaving to the radio tower, Rose reminded Bernard that he is "not Rambo," and to be careful. Bernard and Sayid successfully shot their tents, setting off the dynamite explosions and killing seven Others. Jin missed, however, and Bernard ran into the jungle to be caught by Tom, as Ryan, and Jason captured Jin and Sayid. Bernard was forced to tell Tom what he knew of the plan concerning the radio tower in order to save Jin's life, who Tom had been told to kill if they didn't answer their questions. Later, Tom shot three rounds into the ground as part of a ploy to convince Jack (listening on Ben's radio) that they had been killed. Hurley then showed up in the DHARMA van, allowing the remaining Others to be killed, and saving Bernard. Later on, Bernard looked on happily as sat on the beach. (3x22)
Season 4 (Day 93)
While waiting on the beach camp, Bernard is informed by Hurley of the transmission to the freighter. He then urges Hurley to do a cannonball, which Hurley does. Desmond then rows ashore, and Bernard and the others begin to ask Desmond questions. Desmond then reveals that Charlie is dead. After journeying to the cockpit, Bernard is reunited with Rose. After offering to go with Rose on whichever side she chooses (Jack or Locke), Bernard stays with Rose and Jack's side. (4x01)
- Bernard was the nineteenth character to ever have a flashback.
- Bernard's total episode count so far (including flashback appearances, voice appearances etc) is 13.
- The flight manifest from the German 108minuten.de website states Bernard's full name as "Bernard Bernstein". However, that manifest is an expanded and partially corrected version of the manifest from the Lost: The Untold website, and since both versions of the manifest contain numerous details that contradict information stated on the show itself, they're to be considered non-canonical.
- "Greatest Hits" is the first episode of Season 3 that Bernard and Rose appear in (Apart from Rose briefly appearing in a flashback in "").
- In the 05/21/07 podcast, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse joked that Rose & Bernard would later have their own romance-themed spinoff show entitled "Rose & Bernard's Love Island", with Charlie as a pool boy.
- 如對以下的未解決謎題有任何推論，請到 去討論
- Is there a reason why he is the only tail section survivor not captured or killed?
- If he was in the bathroom during the crash, why was he found in a seat after the crash?
- What connection exists, if any, between Bernard and Dr. Gary Nadler?
