After a long summer of battling the thaw, Life Below Zero‘s Alaskan adventurers are running on empty. On tonight’s season finale, it’s a Long Road Home for the four camps of wilderness dwellers, as they brace themselves for the treacherous winter ahead.
Struggling all summer to scrape by on Chandalar’s dwindling food supply, Glenn needs help. Resources are drying up, game is scarce and edible plants are few and far between. In order to survive, Glenn embarks on a 60-mile journey out of the wild and back to civilization, with only a small ration of food to last him through the difficult journey.
For the Hailstone clan, the annual salmon run is vital for their survival. Every year, thousands of salmon make their way from the oceans to the rivers around Noorvik, and the family relies on their native fishing technique, perfected over hundreds of years, for enough fish to last them through the months ahead.
Sue faces a dire situation in Kavik. With the winter months fast approaching, she’s out of fuel and saddled with a roof full of holes on her compound. After a perilous summer season spent preparing for the winter months, Sue’s running behind schedule and her business is at risk.
For Andy and Kate, building their dream home is a nightmare. In order to pour the foundation for their future house, they must travel down the Yukon River to retrieve two-ton bags of gravel, unloading them with a makeshift crane. Will the dangerous process halt their plans in its tracks?
After a season of hard work and well-won survival, the Life Below Zero camps are running out of time before winter’s arrival. Will they make it through the thaw?
Say goodbye to Sue, Glenn, the Hailstones and the rest of Life Below Zero on the season finale tonight at 10P.
