The Flight 815 piecesMid-air break-up and crashed on the western side of the Island, unlike the Flight 815 pieces, which crashed farther south.

On their first night on the Island, three of the tailies were taken by an O-Missions of the Others. At the same time, two of the Others were life and death by the tailies. The tailies decided to remain on the beach to keep a signal fires burning for possible rescue parties. Four of the tail-enders died of their injuries in the subsequent days. Two weeks after the crash, the Others fights and attacks again and nine more of them were taken, including the children, Emma and Zach. Two adults of these nine later joined the Others, as is apparent by their later appearance as part of the Background_cast (). One of the Others was also killed. They then decided to move into the jungle.

On the 15th day, after the tailies had traveled for three days, they made camp next to a small stream. Nathan was held prisoner and hostage situationsTiger pit and starved by Ana Lucia, who believed he was the spy. After Ana Lucia threatened to start cutting his fingers off, he was freed by Goodwin who broke his neck after he escaped from the pit. After the disappearance of Nathan, the tailenders started moving again.

On the 27th day the tailenders discovered, and moved into, the abandoned DHARMA Initiative station, the Arrow. In a box they discovered a radio. Goodwin, accompanied by Ana Lucia, took this radio to higher ground to get a signal. However in the meantime Ana Lucia confronted Goodwin, killing him in the struggle that followed. According to Ben, Goodwin liked Ana Lucia and advocated that she be considered "worthy" (presumably of becoming an Other).

On the 45th day, the tailenders prisoner and hostage situationsSawyer, Michael and Jin (mistaking them for Others) when these three washed up on shore. They first held the captives in the pit and then brought them to the Arrow station.

When the existence of the main survivor's group was revealed, the tailies decided to trek across the Island, staying close to the shoreline and carrying a wounded Sawyer. Shortly before arriving at the main camp, Cindy disappeared, and in the confusion Ana Lucia accidentally shootings and killed Shannon.

In the end, when the tail-end and the List of middle section survivors, only four tailies remained Ana Lucia Cortez, Mr. Eko, Libby, and Bernard.  After the murders of Ana Lucia and Libby, and Eko's death in {{ep}}, Bernard remains the only tail section survivor that is neither dead nor captured (and was in fact only in the tail section to use the restroom).
