|Dr. Sanders and Bernie are devoured by a zombie and a zombified Larry|
Very little is known about Bernie's life before the outbreak started. However, he is shown to have issues dealing with stress and anger, and is seeing a therapist, Dr. Sanders, to work through these problems.
Bernie is first seen threatening Dr. Sanders with a lamp, as he has just learned his wife is leaving him and is lashing out as a result. As a result of Doc's intervention, he calms down and apologized to Dr. Sanders. However, as soon as Doc leaves the room, Bernie and Dr. Sanders are both attacked and devoured by zombies.
