This is an overview of episodes 103 to 118 in the series, 7 Days to Die.
The season begins where Season 5 left off, with Aaron abandoning his redemptive quest to demolish the "Skyscraper of Babel." Aaron and Emre flee across country, and the series picks up with them an unknown time later after they've set up shop somewhere far, far away - possibly even Canada or Russia.
Emre leads Aaron to a "haunted" flooded house he's found at the edge of a vast chasm in the earth, kicking off the events of the new season. Aaron builds a massive fort in the Death Pit, calling it Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort.
Aaron and Emre deal with several issues over the course of the season. Emre appears to be possessed by a demon, while Aaron develops a sudden fascination with human poop. Aaron insists that eating poop will "exorcise" the demon. At first, Emre believes the "possession" is merely Aaron hallucinating, until the "demon" jumps to Aaron.
Aaron and Emre also explore a wintry biome, where they discover a lumberjack-infested city and an underground bunker. When growing hostilities cause Aaron and Emre to partially dissolve their partnership, Emre relocates to the underground bunker, building into his own fort, the Snow Mansion.
The most portentous development of the season, however, is the mysterious appearance of a huge and slowly expanding rift into the Void that manifests in the shadow of Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort. Aaron develops an unhealthy obsession with the rift, resulting in long discussions of its Lovecraftian implications.
At the end of the season, Aaron and Emre reunite to battle the Day 28 feral horde. Aaron challenges Emre to destroy Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort, which proves resilient well beyond what the laws of physics should allow. Aaron leaps into the rift, wanting to go "home" to Navezgane, and beckons Emre to join him in the Void.
Season 6 Death Count Edit
The Cabin Edit
- A rustic cabin in the woods that Aaron and Emre have been using as a temporary base when the new season begins. Features minimal defenses.
- Permanently abandoned in Episode 106 (Always Dead Glitch) in favor of Geroge Porgie Pudding and Fort.
Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort (a.k.a. Fort George, a.k.a. Fort Sass 'n' Pancakes) Edit
- Aaron's Fort: A robust concrete tower rising up from the middle of an extremely deep crevice (the Death Pit).
- Aaron starts pondering building a "mega-fort" in the Death Pit in Episode 104 (Cave Explorers). He doesn't like the location at first, but starts construction on Day 6. The Day 7 feral horde undermines the fort, completely destroying it (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol), but Aaron rebuilds.
- Aaron suggests building an invincible mega-fort and naming it George on Night 8. Emre suggests Fort George, but Aaron prefers just George, then muses on George the Fort. When Emre spits out Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort, the name sticks (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch). Later, Emre complains that he's always hated the fort's name; Aaron retorts that while it's hard to remember, it's "dominant" (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In).
- A rift into the Void spontaneously opens to one side of the fort, swallowing anything that steps into it. This "nether void" actually adds considerably to the fort's defenses.
- Aaron accepts Emre's challenge to destroy each other's fort, convinced that Fort George is literally invincible. Emre barely succeeds after a full day of demolitions; the fort is so strong it remains standing for several minutes even after its foundation has been completely undermined. When the fort is hovering in the air (doomed but still appearing intact), Emre finally declares his love for Fort George, deeming it the Most Impervious Fort in Hell. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
Snow Mansion (a.k.a. Fort Aaron's Genitals Are Fluid) Edit
- Emre's Fort: A preexisting bomb shelter hidden under a shed in a snowy biome. Emre further fortifies the bunker, adding interior walls and a boobytrapped escape tunnel. He eventually adds a sturdy curtain wall and minefield on the surface.
- Aaron discovers the bunker in Episode 113 (New Underground Base). After spending the night there in brutally cold conditions, Aaron returns to Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort, ordering Emre to remain. Emre complies, saying he likes the bunker better anyway (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In).
- Aaron sabotages Snow Mansion as a spiteful response to his mistaken belief that Emre has stolen his nail gun. The sabotage blows a hole in the wall, but the fort (and Emre) survive the Day 28 blood moon. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Emre lets Aaron work out his frustrations by destroying Snow Mansion, challenging him to destroy each other's forts. Aaron uses a combination of explosive crossbow bolts and Emre's own explosives to blast holes in the base. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- "Ohh! I am swimming in the gross flooded basement of this place, and it is making me so happy and so wet." - Emre (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)

Women are the worst." - Emre "No, they don't like men at all in the apocalypse. Not the ones we've met." - Aaron (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)

- "I think it's that demon that possessed you; he's making you do rash and crazy things, totally unacceptable and un-moral things. Like go to places without me and not wait for me." - Aaron (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- "There's only one way to exorcise the demon from your body." - Aaron "P90X?" - Emre "Nope." - Aaron "That's the best way to exercise anything." - Emre "Exercise will not get rid of a demon, I'm sorry." - Aaron "(laughing) You just said 'exercise' it. Y'get it?" - Emre "Uh, no. Ex-OR-cise. Goddamn it." - Aaron "Oh... okay. How are we gonna exorcise the demon, then?" - Emre "Ever since you became possessed your puns have been not as good." - Aaron "This demon is sapping away all of my favorite things about myself!" - Emre (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- "If you want to do something really exciting, you could build a forge." - Aaron "A forge?" - Emre "Yeah, we're going to need one at our new place." - Aaron "We need a forge for George?" - Emre "Yeah, we need a George forge!" - Aaron "So you're saying I could be a George Foreman - Forgeman? A George Forgeman?" - Emre "...I wouldn't. I wouldn't say that! No, actually I would go out of my way to not say that ever." - Aaron (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)

- "I always thought we were in Purgatory, but I'm pretty sure we're in some sick, eldritch horror's dreamworld." - Emre (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- "We make [Fort George] even more impregnable. We make it so that the sides are so deep we open up three more planes to the Old Ones. We awaken whatever is living down there. And we destroy this plane once and for all, and escape it!" - Aaron, ranting (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- "I have a really really nice machete man, it's blue." - Emre "Do you know how to make a machete man?" - Aaron "You can't make a machete, man." - Emre "Can you make a man out of machetes?" - Aaron "N-no." - Emre "'Cause that would be a pretty cool thing to, like, if we could remote control a machete man..." - Aaron "Well, you work on that! You work on that, okay?" - Emre (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- "Sometimes it's good not to think. It feels good. It does your heart good. Hearts don't have minds, you know what I mean?" - Aaron (Episode 112 - Rooftop Argument)

- "We need to go back home, where we started, and live there. And clear out the remaining zombies, and start a place where other people can come and live. [...] It should be our home, man, it should be where we started! [...] And we're going to make that place our place where we welcome all newcomers, and everyone is welcome, and no zombies can touch us. And there's no more sabotaging forts! It's a happy ending, where everybody lives! You build some horrible church, where you teach children that striking them is the best way for them to be punished-" - Aaron "It is!" - Emre "-for throwing water balloons at them, and I build a laboratory where I do experiments that don't create world-ending apocalypses. Unless I get bored or something again. But, y'know, in the meantime I do things that, like, create teleportation and invisibility and, like, weird science - like, we can create chicks." - Aaron (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- "I think we need to give SP Cakes another chance. I think we - we - we - we just - we didn't say the right things; you know how like when you go on a date, and you just say a couple of things that are a little bit off? And the girl's, lilke, 'Nnyyyeeah, I'm gonna' - and they shoot you in the face, and they're, like, 'Get away from me.'" - Aaron "Yeah, I guess." - Emre "We just gotta-" - Aaron "I guess Jesus would forgive her." - Emre "Exactly! And... and... that's the way we need to live our lives." - Aaron "Like Jesus?" - Emre "Well... like Jesus trying to score with a chick." - Aaron (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)

You're right." - Emre "He's like a white dude with white hair and a beard." - Aaron "And He's got a tattoo!

- Part 2: Aaron sabotages Snow Mansion just before the Day 28 blood moon, hoping to blast open Emre's escape tunnel to provide the feral horde easy access into the fort.

(Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Part 3: Aaron admits that his scheme to sabotage Snow Mansion has backfired, resulting in Emre having a fun, action-packed night, while Aaron died and spent his night bored and alone.

Aaron is so disgusted to learn that Emre's escape tunnel would have actually worked that he gets permission to shoot the explosives surrounding Snow Mansion. Emre challenges him to destroy each other's forts. Emre discovers a cache of gas barrels in Aaron's storage chests at Fort George, which he surmises Aaron had been hording to use against him.

(Episode 117 - 28 Days Later; Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Aaron the Proper Host: Emre complains that he gave Aaron food under his own roof, and Aaron then turned around and betrayed him, comparing Aaron's behavior to the Red Wedding.

- Aaron the Trickster, Part 1: When Emre complains that his Wellness has fallen to 62, Aaron shares in the sympathies by claiming that his own Wellness has fallen to 64. In fact, Aaron's Wellness at the time is 74. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 2: During the Day 28 blood moon, after he's killed and respawns at Fort George, Aaron tries to trick Emre into thinking he's staying put while actually racing cross-country to reach Snow Mansion to recover his mini-bike.

Aaron accidentally lets the cat out of the bag when he complains about having "lumberjack issues." (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Aaron vs. Gravity, Part 1: Aaron rejects the "haunted" flooded house as soon as he sees how unstable it is. He and Emre both fall through the floor, but for once it's just Emre who hurts a leg; Aaron lands in the flooded basement.

- Part 5: On Night 15, Aaron tells the childhood story of the night he spent waiting for Santa on his parent's roof. Naturally, he fell off, and the enchanting/disturbing events he vividly remembers after that may have been the result of hitting his head. (Episode 112 - Rooftop Argument)
- Part 6: Hiking straight from the Snow Mansion to Fort George, Aaron enters a section of the wasteland that is riddled with caves and crevices. Stalking zombies push him to try to cross a land bridge, but it collapses under his feet, dumping him into the caves. "It's not a path across!! It's not a path across!!" he shrieks as he scrambles for solid ground. When the zombies follow him in and surround him, he flees even deeper into the earth, repeatedly breaking his legs. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Part 7: Just after convincing Emre to return alone to Snow Mansion during a blood moon, Aaron falls down a ladder in Fort George, badly injuring himself and spraining his leg. (Episode 116 - Night Hunt)
- Part 8: Fort George proves itself utterly invincible, the "most impervious fort in Hell," by levitating in midair after Emre has completely demolished its foundations. After thoroughly congratulating himself for the grandeur of his creation, Aaron walks back into Fort George, which instantly starts collapsing under his feet. It first dumps him down to a lower level, breaking his leg. Emre narrowly escapes as the fort begins to cave in overhead.

Fortunately, that was his end goal all along anyway. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)

- Part 5: Aaron believes the forge in Fort George has either "melted" or "entered the Void," but when Emre looks at the forge it's fine. Aaron isn't sure if he has something in his eye, or perhaps if there's something wrong with his goggles. (Episode 116 - Night Hunt)
- Aaron vs. Homesickness: Starting in Episode 114 (Crappy Cave-In), Aaron starts yearning to go back home to "where it all started." Emre doesn't remember where that is, so Aaron reminds him of Navezgane, Arizona.

- Aaron vs. Pit Stops, Part 1: Having finally obtained a working mini-bike over the course of the previous season, Aaron strikes upon the idea of running down the mobs of zombies swarming in the streets. He hits a zombie cop, immediately gets the bike stuck in the zombie's guts, and is ultimately forced to abandon it when he flees the region. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: After giving Emre his first mini-bike, Aaron warns him at length not to drive it into pit, because Aaron will not replace it. Moments later, Aaron drives his mini-bike into a deep pit.

- Part 3: As Emre drives away from Fort George: "There's a lot of pits, be careful." - Aaron "Yeah. Just have to make a pit stop - get it?" - Emre (Episode 116 - Night Hunt)
- Part 4: En route from Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort to Snow Mansion, Aaron drives his mini-bike straight into a pit and actually worms his way deeper into the earth as he tries to back out. He has to disassemble his bike to free it.

(Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Aaron vs. Poop, Part 1: Aaron has an ever-evolving attitude toward poop. He's fascinated by human turds when he first discovers them in the game, and keeps one of his own turds in his pocket until he has an opportunity to gift it to Emre. Emre is disgusted, but Aaron lauds the merits of poop. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Aaron is absolutely delighted when he finds turds in a toilet. He informs Emre that the only way to exorcise the demon possessing him is for Emre to eat human turds; demons cannot abide them. (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- Part 3: Aaron clarifies that Emre needs to eat at least four human turds, but they can be baked or boiled. Emre not only refuses to eat any turds, he insists that it isn't possible to eat turds. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 4: Aaron thinks it's "awesome" when he finds Emre's poop in Emre's toilet. He keeps half of it for himself and leaves the rest in a cooler.

- Part 5: At the end of the season, Aaron decries playing with poop as "depraved and disgusting," claiming that all of his poop-play was just a "brilliant" ploy to distract Emre from his true plans. In the end, however, he protectively clutches on of Emre's turds as he leaps into the Void. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Emre Ain't Afraid of No Zombies, Part 1: Emre is now so dismissive of zombies that he doesn't even notice when new zombie types appear. "All zombies look the same to me, man." He claims to have not cared about or looked closely as a zombie in a year; they aren't worthy of his consideration. In short, Emre considers him far better than a zombie. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Aaron stops Emre from simply heading out to explore with an hour to go till dawn on a blood moon night. "Dude! It's nighttime! You can't fucking go out there yet." - Aaron "I bet I can. I'm not scared. At all." - Emre. Emre shows off his machete skills, mowing down zombies left and right, but a pair of lumberjacks bring him down, leaving Aaron alone with 2 bullets vs. 7 lumberjacks. Freaking out, Aaron calls Emre an "over-cocky machete asshole." (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 3: On his first night alone in the Snow Mansion, Emre smugly claims that zombies won't even know he's there. "I'm perfectly safe. I've never felt safer than I am right now." (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Emre is Squishy, Part 1: Emre's Wellness has fallen to 71 by the time he starts complaining on Day 8. Aaron blames the demonic possession for his affliction. (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)

- Part 3: Thanks to some bad luck and extreme starvation, Aaron's Wellness actually drops below Emre's (to the minimum of 60) for several episodes. (Episode 108 - Lumberjack City; Episode 109 - Ride the Blunder Bus)
- Part 4: Emre hits upon a plan to end his constant vulnerability. Living in a cold biome lowers his body temperature, which causes him to burn calories more quickly. Since he needs to eat constantly, the meaty meals will drive up his Wellness, which should result in making him a "super-fit, super-powerful Viking Norseman guy." Meanwhile, living in the warm south, Aaron will turn into a "squirmy, scrawny little bitch." (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Emre the Bleeder: Popping pain pllls does nothing to save Emre as he bleeds out from zombie attacks in the Death Pit. (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- Emre the Cave Explorer, Part 1: Emre leads Aaron to the cave-riddled wasteland where they'll eventually build Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort. After they arrive, Emre asks Aaron if he wants to play "Cave Explorer" with him. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Emre presses Aaron to explore the massive cave with him. The next day, he stands on the lip of the Death Pit to mine some clay, setting off a big cave-in that dumps him into the pit (much like sitting on a tree branch while sawing it off). (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 3: Emre explains that while working on Snow Mansion, he got bored one day and started to dig. He found a really big, awesome cave area, so he turns the tunnels into an emergency fallback, including a booby trap involving explosives and a spiked pit. The escape tunnel leads to just below the snow's surface. (Episode 115 - Mini-Bike Mistake)
- Part 4: Emre spends all of Day 29 and into Day 30 setting up and shooting gas barrels to undermine the foundations of Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort. After Fort George has been fatally wounded, he fails in his attempt to leap into the Void and has to dig his way into the rift. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Emre the Fashionista, Part 1: Emre is upset that the heat in the wasteland won't let him wear his "cool" puffer coat. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 2: Emre is very pleased with how cool he looks his new leather duster, comparing himself to Denzel Washington in the post-apocalypse movie, Denzel and the Apocalypse Boys.

- Emre vs. Bees, Part 1: A buh-buh-buh-bee flies right past Aaron without attacking him, continuing on its merry way. Minutes later, what is likely the same bee (now joined by a partner) swoops down to pursue Emre while he's fighting off a pack of dogs. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Emre encounters a bee that's just "chilling out" on the ground near the Death Pit. He beats it to death while it just stares at him. Aaron warns Emre to watch out for "ground bees." In terms of being man's best friend in the apocalypse, Emre judges that bees are even worse than dogs but not as bad as women. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 3: A lone bee comes after Emre while he's cornered at the edge of the Death Pit, but he guns it down. (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Part 4: When the Day 21 feral horde fails to show up, Emre amuses himself by picking off distant bees with his rifle. The one bee Emre doesn't kill actually sneaks up and attacks Aaron, for once. (Episode 116 - Night Hunt)
- Part 5: Emre desperately defends his sabotaged Snow Mansion from the Day 28 horde alone. As he shoots from the ramparts, a bee jumps in him behind, nearly causing him to fall off the walls into the midst of the zombies. Several more bees attack him over the course of the night. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Part 6: Near dawn, another bee ambushes Emre as he continues his defense of Snow Mansion, startling him. In true action movie hero form, Emre slings his rifle to take on the bee mano a bee-o with his machete, trading blows with the mutant before finally killing it. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Emre vs. Fire: Emre has a bad habit of walking into campfires and setting himself ablaze. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Emre vs. Morality, Part 1: Left to his own devices, Emre goes back to using human corpses for storage and decor in his home. He names a storage corpse in the forge room at Snow Mansion "Geordi La Forgemaster." (Episode 115 - Mini-Bike Mistake)
- Part 2: Aaron makes time to destroy Geordi La Forgemaster while demolishing Snow Mansion. He can't remember what Emre named the corpse, so he calls it "Jimbo," "Gumbo," "Danny," "forge buddy," and Emre's "house toilet goblin." (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Campfire Tales, Part 1: While huddled around a campfire on Night 9, Aaron tells Emre at great length about the northern tradition of ball scarves. (Episode 107 - Night Vision Fail)
- Part 2: Hunkered down by rooftop campfires on Night 10, Aaron passes the time (and ignores his hypothermia and starvation) by deciding Emre is his apocalypse mascot, giving him the nickname of Sucky the Shit-Sucker. He then has Emre give him a mascot name: Fucky the Slut-Fucker. (Episode 109 - Ride the Blunder Bus)
- Part 3: Aaron proposes a new round of nicknames the following night, settling on calling Emre "Fucky Sucky Short Shorts." This leads him into musing on short shorts. Emre tries to give himself the nickname of "Badass McGee," which Aaron rejects. Emre eventually nicknames Aaron "Buh-buh-buh-buh-buh-buh Butt." (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Part 4: Aaron tells a disquieting childhood tale of the Christmas Eve he spent waiting on his roof for Santa. He may have met Santa, or he may have been raped. But he definitely fell off the roof and hit his head. (Episode 112 - Rooftop Argument)
- Chickens!: Chickens enter the game this season. Emre encounters a "genius chicken" that uses a dead bush to weave around his attacks until making a break for it and escaping. He's amazed and delighted by the chicken's ingenuity. Aaron is more interested in the fact that chickens exist now. Emre thinks it's obvious that they've simply wandered to a distant region where different animals and even different zombies survive. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Demonic Possession, Part 1: Emre admits that he hasn't heard Jesus' voice since the day Aaron failed to demolish the Skyscraper of Babel. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 2: After Emre dies during the Day 7 blood moon, he respawns with glitchy, floating movements, as if he's suffering a full-body seizure. This highly disturbs Aaron, who offers several possible diagnoses, including epilepsy, palsy, that Emre has become a ghost. Emre proves he's corporeal with a punch, but then appears to spontaneously die and snap back to life, which returns him to normal. Emre insists it's all in Aaron's imagination, but Aaron responds that Emre stopped hearing Jesus because he's possessed by a demon. Emre starts intermittently speaking like a demon, further messing with Aaron's head. Aaron eventually concludes that Emre was possessed by the demon when he first entered the "cursed" flooded house. He also states that there's only one way to exorcise the demon: eating human turds! (Demons cannot abide human turds.) Emre appears possessed again the next time he dies respawns. (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- Part 3: After Aaron and Emre are killed by zombies on Night 8, the "demonic possession" leaps from Emre to Aaron. After suffering seizures and floating around most of the night, Aaron suddenly falls prone, like a corpse, but continues to slide around the floor. Aaron insists he's just having a little seizure and he'll get up in a second. He and Emre agree that they might be going crazy. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 4: Aaron appears possessed again after he's massacred by lumberjacks. Emre describes him as looking either cold or at a rave. Aaron then spontaneously "passes out" and slides across the ground. (Episode 107 - Night Vision Fail)
- Part 5: The quivering returns when lumberjacks kill Emre. Aaron initially wonders if he has "rammy leg syndrome," and then claims he's quaking with fear. Emre explains that he has restless leg syndrome and doesn't like talking about it. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 6: Aaron appears to be possessed again after he dies in a deep cave and respawns at the Snow Mansion. Emre is delighted by seeing him "jam out" on air guitar, though it occurs to him that Aaron might just be fucking a pie. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Dr. Pussyfun's Disease, Part 1: Emre complains that he's sprained his leg by walking down a hill. Aaron points out that if you sprain your leg once, it's a lot easier to sprain it again. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 2: Aaron sprains his leg on a slight incline. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Part 3: Emre accidentally walks off the edge of a wood frame bridge at Fort George and sprains his leg. The descent to Fort George's foundations brings him more pain, particularly when he sidesteps into a deep, unseen hole and breaks his leg. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Gaslighting Supply Drops, Part 1: Emre chases after a supply drop on Day 7. Aaron hopes that Emre finds everything he's always wanted in the crate, then asks Emre what that would be. "You to shut your fuckin' mouth for once in your goddamn life." - Emre "Yeah, but that's not going to be in the crate, man." They imagine the top three things each of them would hope to find in the crate. Emre's top three: World peace; a time machine (see Terrible Uses for Time Machines); and $100,000 of Netflix stock from 2006. Aaron's top three: A really hot blond who likes science; baked raviolis with meat in the center; and a big box of all kinds of sins, mostly sloth (because Emre doesn't like sin). Emre thinks finding a box of sloths would be awesome. When Emre finds the crate, he opens it up and is suddenly attacked by zombies. The crate breaks as he defends himself, and he loses almost all of the crate's contents. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 2: By Day 15, Aaron can't remember when he last saw a supply drop. Even if one did fly by, he would never set out "for two days to find the fucking thing." (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 3: The final supply drop of the season (on Day 28) is so far away that Aaron and Emre blow it off entirely. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- The Gospel According to Emre, Part 1: When Aaron develops a fascination with the "nether void" and a belief in Lovecraftian Old Ones who control their reality, he presses Emre to specify exactly which god he worships. Emre states that he worships Yahweh, or Jesus, whatever you want to call him. Emre's starting to think Jesus might be an Old One. Jesus not only approves of machetes, he had his very own machete, which he named Mary Macheteline. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 2: Emre begrudgingly accepts that Jesus would forgive SP Cakes for killing them all the time. Specifically, Jesus would forgive a chick if he went on a date with her and said a bunch of wrong things and she smacked - or killed - him multiple times. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Immortality, Part 1: Emre acknowledges that if they die, they come back ("because that's the rules of this"), but he's worried that if you jump in the Void, you might never come back. (In fact, Emre once killed himself to escape the Void in Episode 83 - Conversation With God.) (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Part 2: While Fort George is busy defying all known laws of gravity, Aaron assumes the Void is supporting it and wouldn't be surprised if the fort actually granted immortality. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Landmine Your Own Business: By Day 28, Emre has surrounded Snow Mansion with a minefield littered with gas barrels. He makes a faltering attempt to conceal the presence of the landmines from Aaron, telling him only that he's set up a new game: "Red is Dead." Aaron wanders straight into the minefield, but manages to avoid harm. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Part 2: In a destructive frenzy, Aaron purposefully steps on a land mine at Snow Mansion to "fast travel" back to his bedroll at Fort George. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Mind the Spikes, Part 1: Aaron takes all day (and two tries) to race home to Fort George, then walks right into the spikes by the entrance. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Part 2: When Emre returns to Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort for the first time in a week on Day 21, Aaron has surrounded the Death Pit with so many spikes that Emre can't even figure out how to reach the fort without Aaron directing him. On his way back out of the fort a few hours later, Emre walks right into the spikes. (Episode 116 - Night Hunt)
- Part 3: Aaron runs into Emre's spikes while demolishing Snow Mansion. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- The Multiverse: The appearance of a permanent rift into the Void prompts Emre to comment that while he always thought they were in Purgatory, he now believes they're in some sick eldritch horror's dream world. He and Emre debate exactly which Lovecraftian horrorscape they actually exist in (Aaron notes the Dreamlands were fairly pleasant). (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Naked and Confused, Part 1: Season 6 begins on Day 6, after Aaron and Emre have voluntarily trekked somewhere new, far from the Facility. As such, they begin the season with clothing and basic gear, but when the series catches up with them in their new environs, Emre is surprised to hear that his shirt has vanished. He blames a zombie dog for biting his shirt off. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Aaron informs Emre that his shirt and chest armor have gone missing again a day later. Emre is really upset; he loved that shirt! Aaron suggests that Emre is being haunted by a ghost that keeps removing his shirt. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 3: Emre's shirt has vanished again by Night 8, to his bewilderment. Aaron assures Emre that Emre doesn't need to "Matthew McConaughey" him all the time. Emre figures he's developed an instinctive reaction to strip off his shirt whenever he's attacked by zombies. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 4: Emre's shirt vanishes again after he's killed by a zombie on Night 11. When he respawns, he blames the zombie for wrecking his shirt. (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Part 5: On Night 15, Emre discovers that the reason he's freezing to death is that his leather duster has vanished. Aaron suggests that zombies must have stripped him the last time they slapped him down. (Episode 112 - Rooftop Argument)
- Other Survivors, Part 1: Aaron suggests that if they apocalypse was over and they found other people, he and Emre wouldn't be friends. Emre protests, claiming they are friends now. Aaron raises the possibility of, and then rejects, getting together when they're 80 for a post-post-apocalypse reunion. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 2: While obsessively ranting about leaping through the Void to Navezgane, Aaron imagines creating a new home where they can welcome other survivors, potentially including children and maybe even chicks that they haven't made in a lab. See Quotes, above. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Pie Bangers: While complaining that he has never found any pleasurable items (such as a board game) while scavenging in the post-apocalypse, Emre allows blueberry pies as a possible exception. Aaron suggests that they could really have some fun if they found a blueberry pie and a corncob; Emre thinks he's disgusting. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Poor Craftsman: Aaron complains when he degrades the quality of a club by repairing it. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Snipe Hunt: Emre demonstrates the internal defenses at the Snow Mansion by having Aaron stand still, then walking around to the other side of some metal grates and shooting him in the gut. (Episode 115 - Mini-Bike Mistake)
- Terrible Uses for Time Machines: Emre fantasizes about finding a time machine that would allow him to go back to the moment when Billy Ray Cyrus was about to conceive Miley Cyrus, so that Emre could high-five him and tell him "Way to go, dude." That this would also return him to a pre-apocalyptic world is good but coincidental; he would use the opportunity to invest in Netflix. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- They Delved Too Greedily and Too Deep, Part 1: Aaron blames the appearance of a rift into the Void on digging the Death Pit so deeply that he either broke into "Cthulhu's realm" or awakened an Old One. Aaron hopes to keep expanding the Death Pit, digging so deep that "we open up three more planes to the Old Ones." (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Part 2: Aaron states his intention to keep digging until he finds the Old One that runs the Hell they're trapped in and thus escape their endless torture. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 3: While making plans for additions to Fort George, Aaron imagines digging "so deep that I don't know what we're going to discover. Maybe the center of the Earth." Emre's certain that something really bad is going to happen, because it always does. He imagines Aaron opening up another "portal to the Abyss." Aaron had already forgotten about the first one. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Unbearable Facts, Part 1: Aaron tries to provoke a bear into attacking a group of lumberjacks so he can sit back and pick off whichever weakened side wins the fight. When he can't get the bear's attention verbally, he shoots it in the rump. The bear immediately chases after Aaron, ignoring the lumberjacks, and mauls him. The bear vanishes just after killing him. When Aaron and Emre decide to leave the city, they pause to watch a bear kill a lumberjack, but then flee in terror when a zombie horde shows up. They really wish they could stay to watch the epic battle between bear and horde. (Episode 109 - Ride the Blunder Bus)
- Part 2: On Day 17, Emre easily kills a bear with his hunting rifle. Late in the day, he spots another bear and eagerly declares that he's going to kill two bears in one day! The second bear proves more challenging, managing to charge him and deliver a nasty swipe before he brings it down. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- The Void, Part 1: On Day 14, Aaron discovers that a huge rift into a featureless "nether void" has opened up on the lip of the Death Pit right next to George Porgie Pudding and Fort. Aaron assumes he dug so deep he awakened an Old One. Emre recalls the last major appearance by the Void in Episode 83, when "God" attacked them. Emre theorizes that while he once thought they were trapped in Hell or Purgatory, he's now pretty sure that they're stuck in some "sick eldritch horror's dream world." Emre really hopes they never accidentally fall into the Void. Aaron begins to formulate a plan wherein they dig so deep they open up more planes and awaken the Old Ones to destroy the plane of existence they live on (and thus escape it). (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Part 2: Aaron returns to Fort George after a few days away and sees that the Void rift has returned - and expanded. "I'm hypnotized by the Void, man. Holy shit. I can see into space." (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Part 3: The Void rift has continued to expand between Day 17 and Day 21, to the extent that Aaron can see the Moon inside it. (Episode 115 - Mini-Bike Mistake)
- Part 4: After his scheme to sabotage Snow Mansion backfires, a frustrated Aaron decides he wants to "explore" the Void. He begins to speculate that there might be something on the other side. "You don't know until you explore it!" Emre thinks that sounds really stupid and dangerous. Aaron obsession with entering the Void eventually convinces Emre to join him. After Aaron leaps into the Void, he cajoles Emre to follow. Emre does so, face-planting on the edge of the rift. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
Callbacks to Previous Seasons Edit
- Aaron the Gender Bender: Aaron previously "explored his feminine side" at the end of Season 2 (Episodes 48 & 49).

- Check the Map, Part 1: Aaron and Emre express regret for leaving "that other location" (the region from Season 5, including Bethlehem, the Kill Grille, and the Facility), since the rules are different in "this part of the country." (Episode 107 - Night Vision Fail)
- Part 2: Aaron yearns to return to Navezgane, "where it started," and imagines that he might find it beyond the Void. However, while Emre remembers that Navezgane in Arizona, Aaron has forgotten and thinks it's somewhere near there, like Kansas, Louisiana, or Nebraska. Emre seems to think those places don't really exist. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Fort Titanic, Part 1: When Emre states that Fort George is impregnable, Aaron responds with "Don't say that, Mister Titanic." (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort) A possible reference to a similar discussion surrounding the naming of Fort Titanic (Episode 68 - Fort Titanic).
- Part 2: When Emre shows Aaron around the completed Snow Mansion, he notes that while all of his forts are intimidating, Snow Mansion has a little less "rusted, gross, blood-colored metal than I would like," referencing the Christ Tower. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- God's Wrath, Part 1: As Aaron informs Emre that he's accidentally opened a rift into the Void (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort), Emre relates it to the time distortions and "falling through the world" they encountered when God (or at least a guy claiming to be God) attacked them (Episode 83 - Conversation With God).
- Part 2: Aaron now speculates that the "God" who attacked them may have been a servant of the Old Ones. Emre suggests Nyarlothotep. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)

- Skyscraper of Babel, Part 1: Season 6 picks up directly from the end of Season 5 (Episode 102 - #SkyscraperForJesus), with Aaron and Emre rushing back to finish demolishing the skyscraper. They devote roughly a third of Episode 103 (Creepy Flooded Basement) to wrapping up the Skyscraper of Babel before transitioning to the new Alpha, region, and storylines.
- Part 2: Aaron asks Emre if Jesus thinks his partially successful attempt to collapse the "Skyscraper of Babel" at the end of last season was good enough to redeem him. Emre replies that Jesus hasn't been talking to him lately. "I don't know what His deal is, but I haven't heard His voice since that day." (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- The Unstoppable SP Cakes, Part 1: Aaron and Emre refer obliquely to SP Cakes when they muse that women are not man's best friend in the apocalypse. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 2: Aaron mentions SP Cakes again as he envisions a future home in Navezgane, thinking she'll be so impressed with the good they're doing in the world that she'll stop killing them all of the time. Emre is wary; he doesn't really want to see her again. Aaron insists they just didn't say the right things and need to give SP Cakes another chance. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
Referenced in Future Seasons Edit
- Jesus Pig!: A pig suddenly rushes into a store Aaron's looting and perches atop some shelves. Aaron freaks out, claiming the pig is trying to kill him, and immediately guns it down while giggling at its demise. Moments later, he asks another pig to save him from a bear chasing him, but that pig just runs. Later, Emre is astounded when he encounters a pig that he declares to be immune to his blunderbuss. (Episode 109 - Ride the Blunder Bus)
- Land Bridge to Russia: While admitting that he honestly has no idea where they are in the country, Aaron jokes that for all he knows they could have crossed a land bridge into Russia (Episode 107 - Night Vision Fail). In Season 9, the ex-cosmonauts who briefly visit Pleasure Shire in Episode 168 (Bad Hobbit) will also claim to have crossed a land bridge from Russia to reach Navezgane.
- The Multiverse: Aaron dreams of opening up more rifts to other planes and awakening the Old Ones. Ultimately, he dreams of destroying their own plane of existence in order to escape it. In Season 9, Aaron and Emre are thrust into another plane of existence, the Evilverse, where they discover that alternate-timeline versions of Emre's followers have already destroyed countless dimensions in order to prevent the destruction of their own world. (Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort)
- Other Survivors/Pleasure Shire: As he grows increasingly obsessed with leaping through the Void to Navezgane, Aaron imagines building a "home" where they welcome all newcomers and no zombies can touch them. See Quotes, above, for his full vision. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Pie Bangers: Aaron imagines creating a home where he could use weird science to create chicks. Emre approves, as perhaps the one good use for science. In Episode 172 (Blueberry Woman), Aaron discovers his Evilverse counterpart eventually succeeded, creating Bloobs. (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- Series Recap: The introductory montage that opens Season 7 (Episode 119 - New Recruits) visits a scene from Episode 118 (Enter the Void).
- The Unstoppable SP Cakes: During the rant in which he imagines creating a new home for survivors in Navezgane (Pleasure Shire), Aaron even envisions SP Cakes seeing the good they're doing in the world and stopping her efforts to kill them all the time. (It doesn't work out quite that way.) (Episode 118 - Enter the Void)
- The Void, Part 1: A huge rift to the Void spontaneously opens next to Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort, sparking a discussion of Lovecraftian Old Ones, "eldritch dream worlds," and other planes of existence. The Void draws more focus in future seasons, culminating in Season 9 (Episodes 152 - 175).
- Part 2: The introductory montage that opens Season 7 explains that following the conclusion of this season, Aaron and Emre traveled through the Void to Navezgane, where they build a new settlement. (Episode 119 - New Recruits)
- Part 3: Emre face-plants on his first attempt to leap through the rift into the Void (Episode 118 - Enter the Void). This is used as the rationale for a horrific glitch distorting his face early in Season 7 (noted in Episode 122 - Sh*t Eater).
Fun Facts Edit
- Blood Moons: This season features four feral horde nights. Toward the end of the season, the series starts skipping from one blood moon to the next.
- Day 7: Aaron and Emre fend off the Day 7 blood moon relying primarily on the Death Pit itself to keep the zombies at bay. The zombies spend half the night unable to navigate the Death Pit, but when Aaron and Emre shift position slightly to look at a more vulnerable section, the zombies follow, reach their fort, and completely collapse it, killing them both. (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- Day 14: The Day 14 feral horde strikes in Episode 110 (Pudding and Fort), attacking Aaron and Emre at Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort. Most of the zombies are destroyed by the fort's passive defenses, including the Death Pit and a massive rift into the Void that's just opened up.
- Day 21: The Day 21 feral horde attacks in Episode 116 (Night Hunt). Aaron and Emre team up at Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort against a disappointingly feeble horde.
- Day 28: The Day 28 feral horde strikes in Episode 117 (28 Days Later) and concludes in Episode 118 (Enter the Void). Aaron and Emre are separated in their own forts. The night passes uneventfully for Aaron at Fort George, while Emre desperately fights off a huge feral horde at his sabotaged Snow Mansion.
- Building the Fourth Wall, Part 1: Emre looks to the rising sun and jokingly announces that "This episode is brought to you by Coors Light. Cold as the Rockies." His faux-plug is interrupted by an attacking zombie. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Aaron devotes some time to destroy "an abomination of physics growing here" - a dead bush seemingly hanging in the air. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 3: The recurring themes surrounding Emre's vanishing shirts and body-jumping demonic possession are attempts to lampshade recurring glitches affecting Emre and Aaron's characters. Episode 106 (Always Dead Glitch) is named for a recurring, unpredictable bug that causes a character to appear prone, as if dead. This bug will return now and then for the rest of the series, up through Season 9 to date.
- Part 4: The massive, permanent "nether void" rift that opens in the earth next to Fort George (starting in Episode 110 - Pudding and Fort) is a graphical glitch caused by vertices in adjoining ground blocks failing to connect properly. (For those playing at home, these "rifts" can be repaired by using wood frames to smooth out the rugged terrain.) Because the rift is so prominent - not just visually, but also by acting as an invulnerable line of defense - it draws a great deal of attention, including Aaron and Emre's Lovecraftian speculation on the Void.
- Part 5: Emre blames lag when he loses a machete fight vs. lumberjacks. Aaron claims not to know what "lag" means, getting Emre to clarify that he got a headache and momentarily froze up from fear. When Aaron reads off some information from the iron chest armor description in his inventory, he suggests that Emre must have written it when he made the armor. (Episode 111 - Machete Massacre)
- Part 6: On Day 17, after a day and night spent nearly freezing to death, Aaron says that he had a "dream" in which a stranger (someone on the internet who watched the previous episode) advised him that wearing bandannas makes you colder. Later, Emre easily kills a bear, then has a terrible time killing a zombie nurse. "I hope nobody was watching! That would be really embarrassing, right?" Aaron complains about having "the worst headache" that wouldn't let him think or do anything (he usual take on game lag) after he falls in a deep cave. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- Part 7: Aaron covers for a recurring graphical glitch by claiming that when he's riding his mini-bike, he likes to pretend he's running really fast. (Episode 115 - Mini-Bike Mistake)
- Part 8: As Aaron expands Fort George and the Death Pit, he and Emre experience increasing lag in the immediate area. Emre comments on this on Day 22, saying, "The further I get away from your terrible fort, the easier it is for me to fucking exist, you know? I feel like I'm choppy and laggy and stuff when I'm near your place." Aaron again points him toward passing off the lag as a headache. (Episode 116 - Night Hunt)
- Part 9: Aaron can tell that lots of zombies are attacking Emre at Snow Mansion because he starts suffering a "headache" over at Fort George that makes everything "blurry and slow." Emre doesn't know what he's talking about. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Part 10: Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort remains standing (literally floating in midair) after Emre has completely excavated its foundation (most likely due to overwhelmed game physics). Aaron credits the Void with supporting the fort.
- Check the Map, Part 1: This season takes place somewhere far from the region that included Aaron's Facility and the Skyscraper of Babel. When Aaron and Emre flee that city, they decide to run for at least a week. After they've settled down in a new region, Aaron states that they got lost a bunch of times during their journey and he couldn't find his way back if he wanted to. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Aaron names the wasteland where they're attempting to build a fort in the Death Pit the "Accursed Lands." "Mapbook" isn't letting him track Emre again. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 3: Aaron and Emre try to work out where in the country they might have wandered now. Initially, Emre thinks they're in Montana, while Aaron guesses Louisiana. The presence of snow (and absence of crawfish) suggests that they aren't in Louisiana, so Aaron admits that for all he knows, they've crossed a land bridge into Russia. Emre agrees that Russia makes sense. Ultimately, what convinces them they're in Russia is the curative properties of honey; Emre's heard that Russian honey cures all sorts of diseases. They could be in Canada though. (Episode 107 - Night Vision Fail)
- Part 4: Aaron finally gets "Mapbook" working again on Night 10. The overwhelming presence of lumberjacks in the snowy city briefly makes Aaron think they're in Canada again, but Emre reminds him they're in Russia. (Episode 109 - Ride the Blunder Bus)
- Part 5: When Aaron yearns to return to Navezgane, Emre remarks that they're "really far from there." Aaron amuses himself when he figures out how to mark Fort George on his map. (Episode 114 - Crappy Cave-In)
- The Pre-Apocalypse, Part 1: Emre was a huge Miley Cyrus fan. (Episode 104 - Cave Explorers)
- Part 2: After hearing that Aaron keeps his water on his tool belt, Emre irritably suggests that before the apocalypse, Aaron was the sort of driver who would let his gas gauge reach "empty" before filling his tank. Aaron denies that, insisting instead that he kept a gas can on his tool belt and used that to refuel when he ran out of gas. (Episode 105 - Turds and a Pistol)
- Part 3: The Nintendo 64 was Emre's favorite video game system, and Super Mario 64 was the first game he had for the system. (Episode 106 - Always Dead Glitch)
- Part 4: According to Emre, literally everyone ever has seen Star Wars. (Episode 107 - Night Vision Fail)
- Part 5: Aaron claims that the movie Pride & Prejudice & Zombies was okay, but not worth killing him to see it. Emre agrees that the movie was only okay. Emre formulates a theory that the lumberjack zombie-infested Russian town they've been exploring was hosting a lumberjack convention and a hipster convention and a beard convention when the zombie apocalypse struck. (Episode 109 - Ride the Blunder Bus)
- Part 6: When he was a kid, Aaron once spent Christmas Eve waiting on his roof for Santa. He fell off the roof, and maybe hit his head a little bit, but then he saw Santa! Santa took him around to all the houses he broke into, and gave him some little red capsules to eat. Then on Christmas morning, Aaron woke up in his own bed, and all his gifts were there. Emre's pretty sure Aaron was raped. (Episode 112 - Rooftop Argument)
- Part 7: Aaron was a scientist, not an engineer, which is why he doesn't really know his way around dirtbike engines. (Episode 115 - Mini-Bike Mistake)
- Series Records, Part 1: Season 6 and Season 8 (Episodes 140 -151) are tied for Emre's record lowest death counts to date (7 each).
- Part 2: To date, this is the only season where Aaron has suffered more deaths than Emre (8 vs. 7, respectively). The final death that puts Aaron over the top is an explosive suicide performed to "fast travel" back to his bedroll at Fort George (Episode 118 - Enter the Void).
- Time Doesn't Exist Here, Exactly, Part 1: An indeterminate span of time passes between Seasons 5 and 6. When Aaron and Emre abandon the region they were living in last season midway through Episode 103 (Creepy Flooded Basement), Emre suggests they run for a week to set up again somewhere far, far away. A time jump covers the transition from Alpha 12 to Alpha 13. When Aaron and Emre abandon the Facility and the Skyscraper of Babel, it is Day 24; when next we catch up with them, it is Day 6, so presumably at least six days have passed, but it could potentially be far longer. Later, Emre claims it's been a year since he stopped caring about or looking at zombies. (Episode 103 - Creepy Flooded Basement)
- Part 2: Episode 104 (Cave Explorers) skips past a few minutes of Day 7 construction.
- Part 3: Episode 110 (Pudding and Fort) jumps from the morning of Day 12 to the afternoon of Day 14 to skip over extensive construction at Georgie Porgie Pudding and Fort and expansion of the Death Pit. Aaron also notes that "time really seemed to slow down" during the unseen two days, accompanied by the appearance of a rift into the Void.
- Part 4: The series skips from sunset on Day 17 to the morning of Day 21 between Episode 114 (Crappy Cave-In) and Episode 115 (Mini-Bike Mistake). Aaron and Emre spend the unseen time in isolation, building up their separate forts, and Aaron builds a mini-bike.
- Part 5: The series skips ahead again from the morning of Day 22 to the morning of Day 28. Aaron and Emre once again spend the unseen time working on their separate forts while ignoring each other. (Episode 117 - 28 Days Later)
- Part 6: Episode 118 (Enter the Void) jumps ahead a few hours on the morning of Day 29 to skip past Emre's jog from Snow Mansion to Fort George. It skips ahead a few more times while Emre lines the foundations of Fort George with gas barrels.
Game Notes Edit
This season updates to Alpha 13 and uses a new, randomly generated map. Alpha 13 introduces several new zombie types, including zombie bears and screamers, but also removes some of the old models, most notably the Hawaiian shirt-wearing "fatties." (These zombies would later be updated and reintroduced in Alpha 16.) Players can now knock down, cripple, or even dismember zombies in combat. Dead animals must now be harvested for supplies, rather than simply searched. Extreme temperatures and weather become survival factors as well.
Aaron's plan to drain the flooded basement by knocking a hole in its side couldn't have worked; the game engine doesn't support advanced water physics.
The rift to the Void is a known game glitch which can occur when "ground" blocks fail to align properly. As shown in the series, once created, these glitches can grow over time. In a normal game, a player can seal a "rift" by smoothing out the terrain (by placing and removing wooden frames, for example).
When Aaron and Emre split up during the Day 28 blood moon, Aaron's oddly quiet night is due to the fact that until Alpha 16, feral hordes would target a single, random player at the start of a blood moon and continue to pursue that individual throughout the night.
New additions to the game's character creation options allow Aaron and Emre to finally assume the appearances they'll maintain from this point onward, though the bandannas they wear this season prevent the audience from seeing their faces most of the time. Emre's bearded face is first seen in Episode 109 (Ride the Blunder Bus); Aaron's face is not revealed until Episode 114 (Crappy Cave-In).
|103||Creepy Flooded Basement||Jan 9, 2016||Link|
|Having respawned atop a mountain, Emre greets the dawn of Day 24 with a plug for Coors Light. He and Emre race back to the Skyscraper of Babel, discovering that only a tiny section of the building has collapsed. Aaron accidentally grabs both backpacks, then hides atop a roof while Emre struggles to find him while weaving past zombies. After they finally reunite and sort out their gear, Aaron returns to demolishing the skyscraper, but the building's aggravating tenacity and an endless stream of dogs and zombies eventually convince Aaron to abandon the entire project. He even abandons his mini-bike, now mired in zombie guts. Aaron and Emre agree to run for a week before stopping. A time jump (to a new Day 6) finds them camped at a rustic cabin. Emre leads Aaron to a spooky "haunted" house he's found. Along the way, a single lumberjack proves a fearsome foe. They check out a burned cabin, and an unrelated house. Aaron gifts Emre with a human turd, Emre encounters a genius chicken, and they discuss how the animals and zombies are different in this new region. Emre eventually leads them into a wasteland, where they reach the "haunted" house, which is surrounded by a "ginormous" cave opening. Emre enters the house ahead of Aaron and falls through the floor into a flooded basement, where he's attacked by zombies. Aaron follows behind, slowed and distracted by the creepy new zombies hunting him. Emre risks drowning to break into an underwater, glitchy gun safe, while Aaron finally catches up starts thinking of how to turn the crevice-riddled ground to their advantage. Emre asks Aaron to play Cave Explorer with him. Aaron points out that they're only a day away from the next feral horde. The gun safe turns out to be a bust.|
|104||Cave Explorers||Jan 10, 2016||Link|
|Aaron and Emre explore the flooded house. Aaron mildly panics when he sees how unstable the building is, but for once he isn't the only one to fall through a floor. Abandoning the house, Emre pushes them to explore the extensive cave network running through the area. Aaron falls deep into the caves and can't find his way out; the spelunking turns even more dangerous when zombies appear. With the sun setting, Emre abandons Aaron in the "Death Pit." Emre tries using wood frames to hide on the roof, but the ground caves in, dumping him into the flooded basement. Emre spends Night 6 barricaded in the crumbling house's attic while Aaron looks around deep in the caves. On Day 7, Emre attacks a "ground bee," then mines for clay, setting off a cave in that dumps him into the Death Pit. Aaron sets off another cave in and narrowly avoids it. Finally burrowing free of the Death Pit, Aaron spots a promontory rising up from the rift and starts building a new fort. Aaron chops a hole in the side of the flooded basement, releasing a stream of water. They start preparing for the blood moon. Emre chops down a tree and freaks out Aaron, who thinks the world is breaking. They discuss making The World Is Breaking, the movie. As they work, they each imagine the top three things they'd love to find in a crate. Emre finds the crate and is immediately mobbed by zombies; he fights for his life while Aaron rambles about his top three crate-choices. Emre runs back to the cabin fort to grab some gear, forge some iron, and make some coffee. Aaron urges him to run home as the sun sets on Day 7. Emre expresses concern that the zombies will just undermine the new fort.|
|105||Turds and a Pistol||Jan 18, 2016||Link|
|Emre reaches the Death Pit just ahead of sunset. He makes a "Roman Column-seum" pun that pains Aaron. The Day 7 blood moon sees Aaron and Emre with virtually no defenses prepared, but they're delighted when the Death Pit protects them all on its own. After half the night is gone, however, the zombies suddenly shift direction and reach the base of their fort, completely collapsing it out from under them. When Aaron and Emre respawn at their cabin, Emre constantly quivers and moves by floating along the floor. Aaron initially blames the bizarre glitch on epilepsy, but soon theorizes that Emre is unwittingly possessed by a demon. The rest of the night passes quietly. On Day 8, they return to the Death Pit, arguing about Aaron's drinking habits. Far ahead of Aaron, Emre jumps down into the Death Pit to recover his backpack, but is attacked by zombies and bleeds out before he can find a way back up. Still trekking back from the cabin, Aaron searches a toilet and finds a pistol - and some turds! Aaron reaches the Death Pit, with Emre not far behind him, and informs Emre that he must eat turds to exorcise the demon. They team up and carefully work their way into the Death Pit to recover their gear and clear out the undead.|
|106||Always Dead Glitch||Jan 24, 2016||Link|
|Aaron continues to insist that Emre is possessed and that the only way to exorcise the demon is to have Emre eat human turds. He tries again to drain the basement, but the water supply is endless. In the afternoon of Day 8, Emre heads east to explore, and Aaron chases after him, falling in a pit along the way. As night falls, Emre hides in an old cabin, but Aaron loses track of him and heads off in his own direction. At sunset, he gets caught out alone in the woods and is immediately killed. Sadly, Emre's attempt at stealth works no better, and zombies massacre him as well. Aaron respawns in the cabin; Emre accidentally respawns in the woods. When Emre reaches the cabin, Emre's has lost his shirt again, but the "demon" has now jumped to Aaron! They agree they should stick together from now on, and pass the night by making plans for an invincible mega-fort. They're distracted when Aaron starts sliding around the floor like a floating corpse. Abandoning the cabin forever, they head out at dawn on Day 9, and Aaron returns to normal. They return to the Death Pit to drop off their gear, but Emre insists on finding a city to scavenge. They get separated, and Aaron reaches the Death Pit first. He sets down a bedroll while Emre catches up. As they admire the site of their future Fort George, they are suddenly jumped by zombies. Emre crafts a blunderbuss and tries to give it to Aaron, but the weapon bounces off into the depths of the Death Pit. Distressed and frustrated, Aaron suggests that they ignore the late hour and head straight out to find a city to scavenge.|
|107||Night Vision Fail||Jan 29, 2016||Link|
|Aaron and Emre leave the wasteland and check out a house, where Aaron steals a "kill" on a car. They try to work out where in the country they might be as they cross a wintry region. They reach a burned out cabin and explore it, planning to spend the night, while Aaron runs a Star Wars reference into the ground. Aaron steps outside just as a zombie horde pours into the building; the warning gives Emre time to flee in terror. Searching for shelter, Aaron and Emre find a ruined city just before sunset. They plan to stealthily take shelter for the night, Aaron loses his cool and bolts when lumberjack zombies close in. He places a bedroll, then leads the lumberjacks on a frantic and doomed chase while Emre hides quietly in the woods. After Aaron dies and respawns, he finds Emre but also appears possessed again. On the upside, Aaron finds night vision goggles! (Which completely blind him whenever he turns them on.) While they wait for dawn, native northerner Aaron explains the importance of ball scarves to native Texan Emre. At dawn on Day 10, they creep into the city. Emre finds a Shotgun Messiah while Aaron finds himself hunted by a horde of lumberjacks.|
|108||Lumberjack City||Feb 6, 2016||Link|
|Emre breaks into a Shotgun Messiah while the lumberjacks find Aaron. He barely escapes, but risks freezing to death when the pursuing zombies won't let him warm up by the fire. A lumberjack eventually catches and kills Aaron when he pauses to loot a car, but the distraction buys Emre time to loot the store. A lumberjack breaks into the store; Emre tries fighting it, but is forced to retreat, especially when he sees more coming in. Outside, Aaron freaks out when he bumps into an unexpected lumberjack. Aaron and Emre both end up running for their lives. Aaron breaks into another Shotgun Messiah while Emre searches a bookstore full of schematics. They lose their pursuers for a while, and some excellent looting improves their mood. A lumberjack eventually finds Aaron, who burns it to death with a torch. Emre retreats to a Shamway when the zombies find him. Aaron tries to lure the zombies stalking him away from the store, using promises of Emre meat as bait. Emre flees his store while Aaron sneaks back into his. Aaron finds his first AK-47 schematic, and Emre finds a machete! Late in the day, Emre makes camp atop a store roof. Aaron eventually retreats to a rooftop as well. As the sun sets on Day 10, they are both extremely pleased with the results of their supply run.|
|109||Ride the Blunder Bus||Feb 18, 2016||Link|
|Aaron and Emre spend Night 10 huddled by campfires atop separate stores in the city. While Emre crafts, Aaron starves and freezes. Aaron grows so desperate he nearly sets out to search for food at night. He loses his nerve, but draws the attention of a lumberjack. They return to scavenging in the morning of Day 11, with Aaron deciding to ignore his extreme hunger in order to devour a bookstore's worth of learning. Meanwhile, Emre machetes some lumberjacks and is extremely pleased with how he looks in his new leather clothes. Aaron's finds mini-bike schematics, but his profound joy is interrupted when a lumberjack ambushes him. He lures the growing mob of lumberjacks outside, then tries to slip back into the store to keep looting, but the zombies catch and kill him while he sputters in fear. Fortunately, death solves Aaron's starvation problem. He respawns and goes back to looting while Emre finds a movie theater and decides to try out his blunderbuss, which proves disappointing. Aaron guns down a pig that rushes up to him, then attempts to goad a bear into attacking lumberjacks. Aaron's plan results in his almost immediate death. Aaron grabs his backpack; fortunately the bear has vanished. As yet another zombie horde wanders into town, Aaron and Emre finally flee back to home, distracted only briefly by a bear. Emre hunts a pig that's nearly immune to his blunderbuss. Now separated, Aaron and Emre don't agree on where "home" is, so while Aaron runs to (and reaches) the Death Pit, Emre makes for the cabin.|
|110||Pudding and Fort||Feb 28, 2016||Link|
|Aaron barricades himself inside the cursed house's attic as Emre reaches the cabin shortly before sunset. They hide out at their separate locations, giving each other nicknames while hiding from zombies. Aaron is pleased to discover that his night vision goggles are working now, while Emre's cooking fire draws deadly undead attention. Emre respawns in the city, shirtless yet again. The attic floor collapses out from under Aaron. At dawn on Day 11, Aaron focuses on building Fort George while Emre starts for home, finding a great supply crate along the way. Jumping ahead to Day 14, Aaron has started work on Fort George, but his work is interrupted by a wandering horde. In the meantime, Emre has been staying at the cabin while exploring the region. As Aaron and Emre commiserate over how the past day seemed to pass extremely slowly, Aaron turns and notices that a huge rift into a featureless "nether void" has materialized at the western lip of the Death Pit. Aaron and Emre attribute the flickering void to eldritch Lovecraftian entities. On the upside, the rift swallows any zombies that walk into it. Emre reaches the fort late in the day and fights his way past the clustered zombies to join Aaron inside. Emre presents Aaron with a gun safe as a housewarming gift. Fort George is still incomplete, but the nether void helps Aaron and Emre sit back and survive the Day 14 blood moon with ease. They spend the night pondering the nature of reality.|
|111||Machete Massacre||Mar 5, 2016||Link|
|With the danger passed, Aaron and Emre spend the rest of the blood moon discussing the existence of God and/or the Old Ones. Despite Emre's cynicism, Aaron promises that he would never destroy Fort George, since his new goal is to keep digging until he finds and confronts the Old One who controls the hell they're trapped in. Emre flirts with the notion that Jesus might be an Old One as well. At dawn on Day 15, Emre mops up the lingering zombies in the Death Pit, then sets out with Aaron to explore south. Emre shows off his skills with a machete, decapitating one zombie after another, but his luck runs out when they stop skirting the wintry woods and go up against a gang of lumberjacks. Aaron is forced to keep the zombies busy while Emre rushes back. Emre arrives just as Aaron runs out of ammo. Aaron is overjoyed when he finds a desperately needed handlebars schematic in a shed. As the sun sets, Aaron wants to go home, but Emre insists they spend the night in a cabin and keep pushing south. Emre hunts a deer while Aaron retreats to the roof.|
|112||Rooftop Argument||Mar 12, 2016||Link|
|Aaron and Emre take shelter on the roof of a winter cabin for the night. This protects them against zombies, but not hypothermia. When Emre starts freezing to death, he realizes his duster has vanished and badgers Aaron into sharing his puffer coat. As they slowly freeze, they argue over whether to go inside or stay on the roof. Aaron urges Emre to wrap himself around Aaron and stick his fingers in his butt for warmth, but Emre resists. Eventually Emre gets sick of the bitter cold and chops through the roof to go back inside. Aaron follows him in and shares a disturbing tale of the night he met Santa Claus. On Day 16, they keep moving south, hunt a chicken, and then finally escape the winter biome! Sadly, Emre dies defending their cooking fire. Aaron uses Emre's machete to defeat the zombies while Emre hurries back from Fort George. Aaron eats all of the meat they'd been cooking, but food poisoning makes him see Emre as a sliding corpse again. When Aaron refuses to return Emre's machete, Emre threatens to murder him. Emre suggests they head to the city to find a second machete for Aaron.|
|113||New Underground Base||Mar 20, 2016||Link|
|A supply plane flies overhead, and Aaron sends Emre after the crate. Meanwhile, Aaron finds a fenced hut in the winter forest. Emre insists on finding the air drop while Aaron battles zombies alone. Emre abandons the crate, distracting zombies while Aaron returns to the hut and discovers a zombie who died to a slapstick accident. Exploring the hut, Aaron discovers an air duct leading underground. Aaron and Emre break inside and are excited to find a luxurious bomb shelter! Aaron suggests they make the bunker their main base, using Fort George to deal with horde nights. The one drawback to the new base is the sub-freezing temperature. The numbing cold and a passing zombie horde above them makes it difficult to escape the bunker. Nightfall finds them still stuck inside, facing both starvation and hypothermia, and blaming each other. By the time desperation forces them topside in the middle of the night, they are so weakened by cold and hunger that a single crawler poses a significant threat. Once the night passes, Aaron and Emre huddle around a campfire, congratulating themselves for their great new fort.|
|114||Crappy Cave-In||Mar 27, 2016||Link|
|Aaron and Emre feed wood into the fire to keep warm. On the morning of Day 17, they emerge from the bomb shelter to hunt for meat. Emre hunts animals while Aaron sorts out which clothes are making him cold. By now, Aaron is fed up with the constant cold and hunger. He tries to help hunt for meat, but can't do anything and gets so frustrated he eats cat food. Aaron decides to return to Fort George, claiming it all for himself, but orders Emre to remain at the frozen bunker. They retreat to the bunker to cook up some meat, but their growing stress makes them increasingly combative with each other. They admire each other's beards (for the first time ever) before parting ways. Aaron expresses a certain homesickness for Navezgane, "where it all began." Aaron reaches the wasteland, discovering a region riddled by crevices. He tries to cross without falling in, but the earth collapses under his feet, dumping him into a cave. When zombies chase him in, he panics and falls even deeper, breaking his legs, getting cornered, and dying. When Aaron respawns at the bomb shelter, he is "possessed" again. Emre is delighted by Aaron's "air guitar" jamming. Being tossed back together does nothing to improve Aaron's mood, particularly when he realizes not only that his dropped gear is gone, but that he needs Emre's help just to escape the bunker. They set out again late in the day; Emre hunts near his bunker, while Aaron races for Fort George, making it home just before sunset. Checking out his surroundings, Aaron sees that the Void has returned, bigger than ever.|
|115||Mini-Bike Mistake||Apr 3, 2016||Link|
|Jumping ahead to the morning of Day 21. Aaron and Emre have spent the past few days completely ignoring each other. Aaron notes that the Void has expanded, and he can now see the Moon within it. Emre has spent the past few days hunting while Aaron completed a mini-bike. They've also spent their time building up their forts, and Emre declares he's named his base Snow Mansion. While Emre sets out on his morning hunt, Aaron drives to Snow Mansion to present Emre with the gift of a mini-bike. Emre takes Aaron on a tour of his remodeled bunker and shows off its defenses by shooting Aaron in the gut. Emre also shows off the booby-trapped emergency escape tunnel he's excavated; Aaron thinks he's just given the zombies an easy route into his base. In return for the mini-bike, Emre presents Aaron with iron armor. After the tour, they return to the surface, encounter the series' first screamer zombie, and then gas up Emre's new bike and drive back to Fort George. Aaron happens upon a supply crate along the way. He warns Emre not to drive his mini-bike into a pit, then drives his own mini-bike into a pit. Aaron finally frees his bike, then just barely avoids driving straight into an even larger chasm. He and Emre struggle to cross the wasteland safely. As Night 21 looms, Aaron and Emre finally reach Fort George.|
|116||Night Hunt||Apr 9, 2016||Link|
|Emre has trouble navigating the forest of spikes surrounding Fort George, but Aaron guides him in with enough time left over for a quick tour of the fort before the Day 21 blood moon rises. The feral horde soon arrives, but turns out to be just a handful of zombies, who mostly destroy themselves on the fort's spikes. Emre worries that the bulk of the horde is off destroying Snow Mansion, but Aaron doubts it. Aaron talks Emre into going home in the middle of the night to check out the situation. The moment Emre leaves, he blindly walks into spikes, and Aaron accidentally falls down a ladder, each of them badly injuring themselves. Emre drives to the edge of the wasteland, encountering so few zombies that he and Aaron speculated that the zombies may be dying out. However, he draws zombie attention as he goes, and when he gets stuck on a rock, they catch up and slaughter him. Emre respawns in Fort George and sneaks back to his mini-bike, only to discover that its battery is dead. He accuses Aaron of jealously setting him up to get killed. Aaron doesn't deny it, distracted by the Void's brief disappearance. Aaron and Emre trade insults and accusations, ultimately declaring that they're better off without each other. Emre rejects technology entirely, and Aaron is distraught after his new would-be zombie girlfriend's leg falls off. Emre makes it home, which hasn't been attacked. Aaron and Emre spitefully make plans to next meet up on Day 28.|
|117||28 Days Later||Apr 22, 2016||Link|
|Jumping ahead a week to Day 28 finds Emre clearing out lumberjacks around his fort. He's spent the week creating a concrete fortress on the surface at Snow Mansion, and he lets slip that he's planted land mines under the snow all around it. Aaron and Emre confess that they've both really enjoyed their time away from each other. Aaron comes over for a visit, but drives his bike into a deep pit and has to disassemble it. The plan is to fight the Day 28 horde at Snow Mansion, over Aaron's objections. When Aaron reaches Snow Mansion, he reveals that he looks female again. Emre shows Aaron around the expanded fort. Despite Emre's suspicions, Aaron eventually manages to sneak off by himself to sabotage the fort's escape tunnel. After leaving the fort and piling explosives against its main entrance, Aaron lures Emre into the bunker. Aaron accuses Emre of stealing his nail gun. Emre pleads ignorance, but his denial does nothing to appease Aaron. Aaron leaves, pausing long enough to blast an enormous hole in Snow Mansion's walls. When Aaron tries to flee, Emre manages to snipe him. Aaron respawns at Fort George; he wishes death on Emre and brags about the improvements he's made to his own for. Meanwhile, Emre scrambles to repair the breach to Snow Mansion's walls. When the sun sets, Aaron enjoys a quiet night at Fort George, while Emre frantically fights off the blood moon horde by himself. Fortunately, the horde attacks the intact side of his fort.|
|118||Enter the Void||May 1, 2016||Link|
|Emre continues to battle the Day 28 horde at Snow Mansion, hoping to finish off the zombies so he can then destroy Aaron's mini-bike. Aaron runs back by night to stop him, having to fight off several zombies along the way. He pretends to still be at Fort George, but Emre doesn't fall for the trick. Emre smashes the bike, and Aaron is disgusted to learn that Emre and his fort have both survived. Aaron admits his plans have backfired. Aaron yearns to "explore" the Void, reminiscing about how life was better back in Navezgane. Emre is leery, not sure that there's any coming back from the Void. Looking for something to do, Aaron and Emre challenge each other to destroy the other's fort. While Aaron wrecks Snow Mansion, Emre makes a painful descent to the very foundations of Fort George, where he plants explosives. Aaron purposefully steps on a land mine to "fast travel" back to Fort George. Aaron rants while Emre undermines. Ultimately, destroying Fort George takes all day and countless gas barrels. Aaron merely sits and watches all the while, convinced that Fort George is invincible. Aaron fantasizes wildly about leaping through the Void to go back to Navezgane, where he and Emre could create somewhere safe to live, and attract other survivors, and conduct non-apocalyptic experiments, like using mad science to create chicks. This eventually wins Emre over. Emre is dumbfounded when Fort George proves so indestructible that it hangs in the air after he's completely demolished its foundation. Aaron leaps back into Fort George, planning to jump from it into the Void, but the fort starts to crumble under his feet. Aaron leaps into the Void, beckoning for Emre to follow. Emre clambers along the collapsing Fort George and hurls himself into the Void, face-planting on the edge of the rift when he misses. Finally, Emre scrabbles his way into the Void.|
