This is an overview of episodes 84 to 102 in the series, 7 Days to Die.

The new season starts in the immediate aftermath of the end of Season 4, when "God's" minions drove Aaron and Emre into the Void. Finding themselves separated in a new wilderness, they quickly dismiss the significance of that event to focus on getting themselves back on their feet. Aaron discovers a foggy town he names Bethlehem and guides Emre to join him there. Finding a tiny, fortified shack near a college dormitory, they take it over for use as their first base.

As they continue to explore, they move their operations to an underground bunker under a country house, which they modify to create the Kill Grille. The emergence of one of their deadliest foes to date - bears - prompts Aaron and Emre to reveal more of their pre-apocalyptic lives.

While out scavenging in advance of the Day 21 horde, Aaron and Emre discover an unusual building, and Aaron realizes that he's accidentally found his way home: the facility where he first created, and then accidentally unleashed, the zombie plague that destroyed the world.

Returning to where it all began (or ended, depending on one's point of view) fills Aaron with a sickening and unfamiliar sensation of guilt. Seeking to atone, Aaron agrees to Emre's command that he destroy the Skyscraper of Babel, a vacant building for which Aaron has developed a strange obsession, and a symbol, in Emre's mind, of the failings of science.


Season 5 Death Count Edit

  • Aaron: 5
    Emre: 17
    However, Aaron's lucky streak does result in him being infected over many episodes.

Characters Edit

  • Aaron - Mad scientist
  • Emre - Religious zealot

Forts Edit

Dorm Shack (a.k.a. Smallest Base Ever, a.k.a. Beer Fort) Edit

  • An extremely small base just large enough for two beds and two chests. Aaron and Emre have to stand on their beds at night. Heavily fortified (including a mini-drawbridge) and surrounded by cacti and spikes. Aaron assumes other post-apocalyptic survivors built it.
  • Aaron finds the shack in Episode 85 (College Dorm Shack) and immediately claims it for himself.
  • Abandoned in favor of the Kill Grille.

Kill Grille (a.k.a. Horror Vacation Home) Edit

  • An underground bunker beneath a walled country house outside Bethlehem. Aaron expands the bunker and installs a grille on the ceiling so they can shoot dogs and zombies without placing themselves in danger.
  • Aaron discovers the bunker in Episode 88 (Trapped In A Hole!), and he and Emre quickly decide to abandon the claustrophobic Dorm Shack.

The Facility Edit

  • Aaron's original research lab. Ground Zero for the zombie apocalypse.
  • Aaron invented an Indestructible "bedrock" substance to contain his zombie test subjects in cells they could not break through, but sadly he also included open viewing windows the zombies could reach through.

I just... y'know, I feel like everything's pointless." - Emre "Okay, well, I mean - I think I see what you're saying, but we're surviving. I mean, isn't that kind of important? Don't you want to survive anymore?" - Aaron "Yeah..." - Emre "Here, tell ya what. Dude, I know exactly what will cheer you up. Eat this.

  • "Never take down a building from the inside. That's the lesson here." - Aaron (Episode 102 - #SkyscraperForJesus)

Recurring Themes Edit

  • Aaron is Infected: A female zombie infects Aaron on Day 2 (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion) and he stays infected until Day # (Episode 89 - Invisible Bear), complaining all the while about his nonexistent stamina.
  • Aaron the Bunker Buster: Aaron actually makes no attempt to destroy any forts this season, but he does accept Emre's quest of absolution to destroy the "Skyscraper of Babel."
  • Aaron the Creeper, Part 1: Now flush with pork and venison, Aaron promises to give the starving Emre "the meat so hard, straight up your fucking ass." Emre admits he would not be opposed to that, so long as he gets a good night's sleep and meal out of the deal. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
    • Part 2: Aaron trades kisses for painkillers. Emre is so hurt he takes the offer without complaint. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Aaron vs. Hallucinations, Part 1: By the end of Day 1, a fog has settled in around Aaron that's so dark and thick he assumes wildfires must be burning nearby (Episode 84 - Strange New World). He's still complaining about the darkness on Day 2 (Episode 85 - College Dorm Shack), and it gradually becomes clear that he and Emre are not seeing the same weather conditions.
    • Part 2: By Day 3, Aaron is starting to realize that the constant fog and darkness all around him (everything looks "super polluted") may be in his head. He blames an untreated infection for his hallucinations. Later, a door he's trying to break down keeps shifting in and out of existence before his eyes. Later still, Aaron believes he's hallucinating a desk. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
  • Aaron vs. Pit Stops: Aaron spends much of the season on a quest to build a mini-bike. Once he achieves his goal, he tends driving his mini-bike into giant pits.
  • Emre Ain't Afraid of No Zombies: Emre blows off Aaron's warning to sneak around any zombies he encounters in the wintry woods, but a few rough early encounters convince him to heed Aaron's advice. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
    • Part 2: Emre confesses that he has to exaggerate his reactions to zombies, because he is now more terrified of bears, dogs, and bees than he is of the undead. On the same tack, he finds the woods more frightening than the city. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
  • Emre is Squishy: By Day 4, Emre is so weak that he's torn between the need to go out and scavenge and his need to sit around and do nothing but eat. (Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
  • Emre the Bleeder: Emre is killed by something invisible, which he guesses was probably an invisible dog (which he still believes killed him in Episode 1).
  • Emre the Cave Explorer: Emre tells Aaron about the "Cave Explorer" game he would play as a child. The chance to explore a hole breaks him out of a funk, and he saves the day when he and Aaron briefly find themselves trapped inside a flooded concrete bunker. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Emre the Fashionista, Part 1: When they finally get to spend a night together, Emre has Aaron check out his clothes and tell him how he looks. (Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
    • Part 2: Aaron supplies Emre with some new clothes, including an amazing Santa hat. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Campfire Tales: Aaron and Emre spend their first night in the bunker they'll name the Kill Grille dealing with Emre's existential funk and discussing whether or not Emre's going to have to kill Aaron once he turns into a zombie. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Gaslighting Supply Drops, Part 1: When Emre notices that there was no supply plane on Day 1, Aaron assumes it's because the supply planes are operated by the same guy ("God") who drugged them and left him here, and who has decided to simply stop resupplying them. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
    • Part 2: When Emre finally spots another air drop on Day 4, Aaron tries to talk him out of chasing after it, convinced the crate will be filled with nothing but "filth and embarrassment." Emre chases after the drop on his own, but it's so far away he completely loses track of it. (Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
  • The Gospel According to Emre, Part 1: Everything is predestined and predetermined by God. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
    • Part 2: The Lord made all churches. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
  • Ladder Control Problems: Aaron and Emre climb down into a flooded bunker, only to discover the ladder's blocked when they try to climb back out. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Mind the Spikes, Part 1: Aaron and Emre frequently jab themselves on the rows of cacti surrounding the Dorm Shack. (Episode 85 - College Dorm Shack; Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
    • Part 2: Emre takes on a zombie horde by himself, which leaves him so grievously wounded that when he returns to the Dorm Shack, he brushes against a cactus and dies. (Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
  • Other Survivors, Part 1: Aaron is certain that other survivors must have come along and prepared the Dorm Shack fort's ingenious defenses. Sadly, whoever they were, those survivors must be dead now. Oddly, they stuck a couple of random toilets near the ceiling... (Episode 85 - College Dorm Shack)
    • Part 2: Aaron assumes that the bunker beneath the horror mansion must have been built by people who knew the apocalypse was coming. He even assumes they might still be alive inside, until he breaks in and finds it deserted. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Pie Bangers: Aaron finally coaxes Emre into giving in and having sex with a blueberry pie.
  • Skyscraper of Babel: Aaron develops an obsession with a towering, seemingly empty skyscraper, convinced it's hiding secrets. Emre is first to see the skyscraper, but he initially makes nothing of it. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
  • Unbearable Facts: For the first time, Aaron and Emre encounter bears, which prove to be terrifying and nearly invincible foes. Emre's been in this new world for just a few minutes when he's suddenly jumped by a bear that sends him into a fit of panic. On the upside, Aaron sees a bear kill a zombie. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)

Callbacks to Previous Seasons Edit

  • Emre vs. Cat Food: Emre purposefully eats cat food out of sheer desperation. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
  • God's Wrath, Part 1: Aaron has already convinced himself that the "God" voice who tore reality apart at the end of last season (Episode 83 - Conversation With God) was just some weirdo who flew a drone over them and probably drugged them. Aaron remains certain that the "Voice" belonged to whatever guy is in charge of the supply planes. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
    • Part 2: Aaron gripes a bit more about the "guy" who took all their stuff. (Episode 85 - College Dorm Shack)
    • Part 3: Aaron's announcement that he found a Santa hat in the horror mansion, and the surprisingly effective protection the hat provides, reminds Emre of the Hellspawn that destroyed Ultra-Heaven. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Ho Motel: Emre discovers another hotel identical to the Ho Motel (Season 2) while chasing after a distant supply drop. Aaron is immediately excited to move in, insisting they'll "do it right this time." (Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
  • The Unstoppable SP Cakes: Aaron and Emre briefly reminisce about SP Cakes while once again pondering how to continue the species. (Episode 99 - Zombie Strip Club)

Referenced in Future Seasons Edit

  • Aaron & Emre vs. Tolkein: "I love this place! It's really rustic. I could set up a megachurch in this place!" - Emre "In a hobbit house." - Aaron "Yeah, a megachurch in a hobbit house." - Emre "A church devoted to Sauron, I assume?" - Aaron "No, it would be a church devoted to Morgoth, ya dumbass." - Emre (Episode 95 - Feral Zombie Attack). Emre returns to the theme in Hardcore Mordor (Season 8 - 9).
  • Emre vs. Morality: When Aaron jokes that zombies stalking him through a bookstore are members of his book club who failed to read Harry Potter, Emre is shocked to hear of people who haven't read the series. Later, in Season 7, Emre hates Harry Potter due to the books' "witchcraft" content. (Perhaps he's finally read the series in the meantime.) (Episode 99 - Zombie Strip Club)
  • Jesus Pig!, Part 1: Aaron suffers a major freak-out when a pig suddenly rushes him. The pig doesn't attack him, but merely runs "over" him to hop excitedly nearby. Aaron immediately beats the pig to death while literally having an apoplectic fit. It takes him several minutes to recover from what he admits is one of the few times he's been really freaked out, and spends time trying to understand what happened. "I think that was a zombie pig! Because why else would a pig do that? ... It came right for me! Why would it do that?" Aaron has a similar initial reaction to the Very Fine Pigs that appear in Season 9 (Episodes 152 - 175), and in Episode 175 (The End of Everything), the Very Finest Pig implies that this encounter was a Very Fine Pig trying to guide Aaron "toward the light," with the usual results. (Episode 85 - College Dorm Shack)
    • Part 2: After killing the "zombie pig," Aaron stores its meat in a backpack. When he returns the next day to retrieve the meat, the shelf the backpack had been resting on has collapsed, causing him to lose everything he took from the pig. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
  • Unbearable Facts: History repeats itself in Season 10, when Aaron's misadventure with a bear (Episode 92 - Bear in the Base) plays out again in even more dramatic fashion (Episode 179 - Zombie Bear in Our Base).

Fun Facts Edit

  • Blood Moons: This season includes three feral horde nights. Aaron and Emre rely on the defenses of a different fort to survive each blood moon.
    • Day 7: Aaron and Emre hide inside the Dorm Shack during the Day 7 feral horde, letting their fort's spikes do the work for them. (Episode 91 - Field of Spikes)
    • Day 14: Fighting off the Day 14 horde involves firing straight up through the Kill Grille. This causes Emre to look up and notice the blood moon for the first time. (Episode 96 - Kill Grille)
    • Day 21: Aaron and Emre retreat to the safety of the Facility to survive the Day 21 feral horde. (Episode 101 - The Facility)
  • Building the Fourth Wall: Aaron and Emre "friend" each other on "Mapbook" to track each other on the in-game map. This season marks the first time "Mapbook" has actually worked for Aaron. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
  • Check the Map: This season takes place in and around Ground Zero for the zombie apocalypse: the town where Aaron lived and maintained the facility where he created (and accidentally unleashed) the zombie virus. At no point in the series does Aaron ever specify where in the country that town is, however. Before Aaron realizes where he is, he names the neighboring village he settles in "Bethlehem."
  • Naked and Confused: As always, Aaron and Emre arrive in their new world stripped down to their underwear. Aaron assumes the "dude" who drugged them and dropped them off here took all their clothes. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
  • The Pre-Apocalypse, Part 1: Emre thought Milky Way bars were pretty delicious. Aaron thought they were kinda gross, but now they'd be like eating the stars out of the sky. Aaron is pretty sure that before the apocalypse, people thought eating corn syrup was worse than eating straight rat poison. (Episode 84 - Strange New World)
    • Part 2: Aaron used to watch a TV show called Mauled by Animals which, according to Emre, was narrated by Reese Witherspoon. They both remember The Walking Dead, which made it to at least Season 3 before the world ended. (Episode 86 - Mystery Mansion)
    • Part 3: Aaron has read Gulliver's Travels. Emre is vaguely familiar with the tale only as a Jack Black movie. (Episode 87 - Smallest Base Ever)
    • Part 4: Emre had a church group before the apocalypse that he would socialize with. They went spelunking once, a tale that leads Emre to tell Aaron about the "Cave Explorer" game. (Episode 88 - Trapped In A Hole!)
  • Season Records: With a run time of 39:14, Episode 99 (Zombie Night Club) is the longest individual episode in the series to date.
  • Technical Difficulties: Part of Episode 88 (Trapped In A Hole!) is only seen from Emre's point of view, due to a problem with Aaron's recording.
  • Time Doesn't Exist Here, Exactly, Part 1: Though never addressed, time passes more quickly in this world. A single game-day passes in less than half an hour (slightly longer than the run time of an average episode), as opposed to the series' general standard of 24 game-hours passing in 50 real-minutes (or roughly two episodes).
    • Part 2: Aaron and Emre are losing track of how long it's been since the zombie apocalypse. Aaron thinks he's been traveling with Emre for years, or at least a year.

Game Notes Edit

This season updates to Alpha 12 and takes place in a player-modded, randomly generated world map that adds numerous new POIs (points of interest). Alpha 12 introduces a number of notable new features, including mini-bikes, bears, and more varied weather. Zombies now ragdoll when killed, and flashlights can be affixed to guns. The moments of sunrise and sunset are now distinguished by musical stings. 

A quirk of the weather system is that Aaron and Emre sometimes perceive different levels of light and fog. Aaron sees near-constant fog, which he blames on hallucinations caused by long-term infection. (In reality, the creeping fog is a bug that tends to affect the player hosting the game.)  

The "invisible bear" that kills Emre in Episode 89 is most likely the result of game lag.  

During this season, Aaron and Emre have day lengths set so that each game day is only slightly longer than a single episode.
