— Feldman tells Jill about John's last will[src]
John Kramer's Final Request
Bernie Feldman was an executor responsible for informing the surviving dependants about the final requests of his clients in the event of their deaths. At some point, John Kramer, one of his clients, gave him a black box and an envelope for his ex-wife, Jill Tuck, and told him to contact her in the event of his death. Later, Feldman was shocked when he learned that John was in fact an infamous serial killer known as Jigsaw. Nonetheless he followed the instructions John had given to him. When John finally died at the hands of Jeff Denlon, one of his victims, Feldman called Jill to arrange an appointment with her. (Saw III, V)
Shortly afterwards, Jill visited him in his chancery. Upon entering, Feldman told her to take a seat. When she asked her for the reason of his call, he told her that he was John's executor and thereby voiced his surprise of the revelation of John's true identity. Afterwards, he opened the envelope given to him by John, which contained a video tape. This tape was made by John before his death. In his video, he apologized to Jill for the death of their unborn son, Gideon, who died during a miscarriage when Cecil Adams, one of Jill's former patients, robbed her at the Homeward Bound Clinic. John deemed himself partly responsible for this tragic incident due to his support of her work at the clinic. He also told her that he still loved her and would always do so. Finally, he told her about the box, saying that its contents were of grave importance. Despite their disagreements on his methods and moral beliefs, he claimed to fully trust her that she would know what to do with the things in the box. As the video ended, Feldman finally handed her the box and put it on a table. Jill took off her necklace, which had a key attached to it. John had given this key to her during their final conversations on the day of his death. Upon unlocking and opening the box, Jill seemed to be shocked by its contents. When Feldman curiously asked her what was in the box, she closed its lid, thanked Feldman for his call and then left his office with the box. (Saw IV, V)
Bernie Feldman was a very calm individual. During his work as an executor, he treated both his clients and their surviving dependants with great respect and showed understanding for their difficult emotional situations. He was also very responsible and conscientious, as seen when he carried out John's last request to him even though he was shocked when he learned that John was actually the Jigsaw Killer.
