2X16 RoseBernard

Rose and Bernard ("The Whole Truth")

Roseard is the fan-given name to the relationship between Rose Henderson and Bernard Nadler. Such nicknames for pairings are also more generally known as 'ships (short for "relationships").

Rose and Bernard were the only married couple to survive the crash of Flight 815, with the exception of Sun and Jin Kwon (Jun).

When Flight 815 crashed, Bernard was with the tail section survivors and Rose was with the main section survivors. They were reunited after nearly 50 days apart.

Important moments before Flight 815[]

Rose introduces herself to Bernard in ("S.O.S.")


  • Rose and Bernard met, when Rose's car was stuck in the snow. Bernard offered to help her out.
  • When the car emerged from the snow, Rose offered to buy Bernard a cup of coffe to thank him.
  • Bernard proposed to Rose at Niagra Falls. Rose told him that due to a terminal illness she only had one year left to live and asked him if he is sure he still wanted to marry her, but Bernard was not deterred.
  • During their honeymoon in Australia, he took her to the faith healer, Isaac of Uluru. Isaac told her that she could not be healed but there were places that would heal her. Rose lied to Bernard and told him she was cured so they could enjoy their remaining time together.

"Pilot, Part 1"

  • Bernard was sitting in seat 23E on the plane, but left to go to the toilet shortly before the turbulence started. As a result, he ended up in the tail section of the plane when it broke off. Since his fingers were prone to swelling when he flew, he had left his wedding ring with Rose.

3x21 Bernard shooting

Bernard demonstrates his shooting skills in ("Greatest Hits")

  • Rose and Bernard searched through the plane wreckage to find wire for detonating the dynamite.
