UPDATED: Recap This Episode!
“The Last Alaskans” continues tonight on Discovery Channel, one man down after the departure of Bob Harte from the Alaska Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. But, after tonight, fans will have been introduced to another resident in the refuge.
Viewers have no doubt wondered who else has a permit in the refuge. In the opening credits, it is always stated that seven permits remain. However, there are currently only four families featured on “The Last Alaskans”: the Korths, the Seldens, the Lewises and, until recently, Bob Harte. Tonight, a new Last Alaskan is introduced on episode “Dark Winter”:
It’s the dead of winter and the Last Alaskans move through the icy Arctic. Heimo still needs a moose, while the Seldens embark on the next part of their trapline journey. One of the last of the Last Alaskans – 20-year-old Charlie Jagow – is introduced.
Take a peek at tonight’s all-new episode, and meet Charlie Jagow:
Young Charlie Jagow sounds very optimistic about the possibilities of living in the refuge. And, at first look, he also seems grounded enough to realize there are big challenges ahead of him. Can he make it? Stay tuned.
