‘Alaska: The Last Frontier’ Episode Guide (Oct. 23): Eve and Jane Are Lost at Sea

“Stranded” (10/23/16) – In the days following the Earthquake, the Kilchers rush to complete important projects.

Meanwhile, Otto, Charlotte and Eivin retrieve a family relic. And later, Eve and Jane are lost at sea during a fishing trip.

Grammy award-winning singer, Jewel Kilcher, better known as “Jewel” grew up in Homer, Alaska, born into the rich heritage of homesteading. The Kilcher family has cultivated and inhabited their Alaskan homestead for generations, learning how to live off the land, hunt for food and survive the harsh Alaskan wilderness. After nearly seven years away, Jewel returns to rejoin her family on the homestead and give her young son a taste of how she grew up. The new season of Discovery’s ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER, premieres Sunday, October 2 at 9PM ET/PT.

Prior to Jewel’s return, Mother Nature challenges the Kilcher family when a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hits, shaking the homestead to its core. In the wake of the natural disaster, the Kilchers scramble to recover, facing widespread damage in the form of dangerous landslides, muddy road collapses and the bonus of deadly gale force winds. With their way of life at risk, the Kilchers must learn to adapt to this new reality.

The earthquake causes the first shakeup of the season but certainly not the last. Otto and Charlotte face their own mortality as Otto goes under the knife to fix his life-threatening hernia and Charlotte bids a final farewell to her mother. Eivin and Eve continue to focus on their own home but Eivin finds himself pulled to help his aging father more and more facing the realization that it’s becoming time to step up. Meanwhile, Atz Lee and Jane remain at odds about his desire to move deeper into the Alaskan wild causing a rift in their relationship. Pushed to their limits by both nature and each other, the Kilchers must all come together as a family to sustain the free and simple life of homesteading they’ve chosen to proudly carry on.

“Alaska: The Last Frontier” is produced for Discovery Channel by Discovery Studios. Executive Producers are Daniel Soiseth,Vince Ueber and Brigham Cottam and Co-Executive Producer is Dustin Rubin.
