Nathan and Eric is the relationship between Nathan Miller and Eric Jackson. They are portrayed by cast members Jarod Joseph and Sachin Sahel. They are first seen together in "A Lie Guarded" of Season Four.
It is unknown if Miller and Jackson knew each other on the Ark. In "A Lie Guarded" Jackson is shot and pinned down by one of A.L.I.E.'s drones. Miller accompanies him until drones are disabled and Jackson is safe. Jackson later makes a pass at Miller in "DNR", and they are seen together in "The Chosen". During their time in the bunker, they fall in love and have stayed together since. During the brief glimpses we get of their relationship, they seem very harmonious, affectionate, and supportive of each other.
Throughout the series Edit
In A Lie Guarded, Miller and Jackson are part of an expedition to Becca's lab in order to produce nightblood serum. After Emori crosses a line, beyond which no mutants are allowed, drones are automatically sent after the expedition. Drones attack everyone who crossed the line, even non-mutants, including Jackson who gets shot in the arm. Nate accompanies him until help comes, shooting the drones until he rans out of bullets. Luckily, Raven manages to shut down the drones with help of Luna and Jackson is finally safe.
In The Chosen, Jackson can be seen with Miller in the bunker during the lottery. After Miller's name is drawn, they hug each other. Jackson already had a guaranteed place in the bunker, because he was a doctor.
In Red Queen, Jackson and Miller are in the mess hall. After a small talk Miller leaves the room and goes on his shift. Moments later Kara Cooper and her rebels close farm's doors, leaving only Skaikru members inside. Jackson wants to stand up against Kara to save Miller but is advised not to by Abby. They are reunited after Octavia and Jaha manage to open the door. They share a hug and a kiss just before the first Gladiator battle starts.
Because of their duties, they are not seen too many times together later in the season.
In The Dark Year, Jackson holds Miller's hand as they proceed to eat human meat in order to survive the "Dark Year" in the Second Dawn Bunker. Miller tells Jackson that they will get through this.
In Damocles (Part 1), Jackson is there to help Miller when he gets shot in the side.
In Sanctum, Miller and Jackson are selected to be members of the team heading down to the surface. Abby tells them to keep each other safe as she bids them farewell. They sit around a campfire and Miller shares his regret over actions he took in the bunker. Jackson tries to console him.
In Red Sun Rising, both men are impacted by the toxin and have the same hallucination, which centers around Miller’s guilt and fear over not having been able to save Obika in Season 5.
The Children of Gabriel shows the couple being affectionate with each other several times, especially when Russell says that Clarke and her people can remain on Sanctum. In The Old Man and the Anomaly, Jackson insists that he is not leaving without Miller.
In Adjustment Protocol, Jackson is taken aboard the ship by the Primes. Miller is extremely distraught at this, and he even stands up to Blodreina in demanding that he be allowed to rescue his partner. During the final episode of the season, The Blood of Sanctum, Miller and Jackson are reunited with a kiss. By the end of Season 6, both members of the pair have shown individual growth as well. Miller stands up to Octavia when he tells her that he doesn't take orders from her anymore, and Jackson survives a falling out with Abby, reconciles with her, and in the final episode demonstrates his competence as the main medic now.
In False Gods, Miller and Jackson have a drink together at the tavern and discuss Jackson's reaction to Abby's death. Miller holds his hand and listens supportively.
