Bernard Ferrion, played by Leslie Jordan on the series, is a man who repeatedly killed people with frying pans.
Bernard Ferrion is small statured Jewish man who first met Alan Shore when he whacked his mother over the head with a frying pan. She proceeded to die from that blow, but Alan got Bernard off because the police had no evidence on him. Later, Bernard intentionally whacked a neighbor over the head with a frying pan to keep her from contacting the police regarding the incident with his mother. Alan refused to represent him, claiming him "evil", and instead turned him over to Tara Wilson, who proceeded to keep him out of prison, again due to lack of evidence. Catherine Piper met Bernard shortly after and tried to introduce him religion, by trying to get him to turn his life over to God, but could not reach him. Convinced he would kill again, Catherine struck Bernard down with a frying pan, killing him in the same manner he killed his mother and neighbor, and hides his body in a freezer.
