In the latest episode of “Alaskan Bush People,” the Brown family deals with the aftermath of a devastating wildfire. Though it’s been five months since the fires destroyed much of the family’s animal enclosures, they need to focus on moving their animals back up the mountain.
In the clip for tonight’s episode, the “Alaskan Bush People” stars discuss how they’re going to tackle moving their animals. They’ve built a makeshift campsite on the property that’s been demolished by the fires. A narrator for the show details that the “family has been working tirelessly” to restore the property.
Rain Brown shares that her biggest concern is just getting the animal enclosures secure enough to keep all of them safe.
“Our animals have been staying in town with friends…but we are definitely very eager to get them back up the mountain,” Snowbird Brown says.
Further, the road conditions are such that bringing the livestock up the mountain will be incredibly difficult. However, the family knows with Billy Brown’s health getting worse, he wants his animals to be with him near the family’s home.
“Dad’s made a connection with basically every animal we have, so it’s important we get them up there,” Rain Brown says.
Billy Brown’s Untimely Death
Though Billy Brown passed away last year, the current season of “Alaskan Bush People” details the end of his life and last moments with his family.
Though it’s a tragedy, his family believes he was laying out a plan for the Brown family before he passed.
“Looking back, Dad knew his time in this world was coming to an end, and we can see now he was laying out a plan for us, preparing us to achieve the vision,” Snowbird Brown said.
She went on to add:
“If only we understood his plan sooner. Life now is unlike anything we’ve faced before. We’ll never give up our fight for total freedom, but can we do it without Dad?”
So what was his plan, according to Snowbird? That all his children will live and adventurous, full life. And it appears the kids are trying to do just that as they learn to navigate life without their patriarch.
“I find myself hearing the call of Alaska,” Bird says. “It’s hard answering, do I want to move back? There’s still a part of me that feels really lost.”
During this season, the family will experience the loss of Billy Brown with a trailer sharing a 911 phone call. No doubt it’ll be hard for the family to relive as it airs.
The latest episode of “Alaskan Bush People” airs tonight at 8 p.m. on Discovery and Discovery Plus.
