A new episode of Alaskan Bush People recently aired and provided fans of the show with both flashbacks and previews of what to expect during the new season. One of the biggest surprises for the Alaskan Bush People viewers may have been the fact that Billy’s daughter from a previous marriage, Twila Wilson, will be coming out to spend time with the Brown family.

Die-hard fans of the Alaskan Bush People series were already aware of Twila, so it comes as no surprise to them that she will be appearing on the show. During the beginning of the Alaskan Bush People episode titled “Browntown or Bust” that aired last week, viewers who weren’t aware of Billy’s daughter were certainly in for a big surprise at the revelation.
“[Thirty] years. We’ve heard nothing from her,” Billy says in one of the sneak-peek scenes. According to Star Pulse, Ami chimes in, saying, “I’ve never forgotten her. She will always be our daughter.”
Before Twila arrives at Browntown, the family has some major cleaning up to do. During the last season of Alaskan Bush People, the entire area of Browntown, including the inside of the house, was torn apart by bears. On top of that, Billy’s health problems became so severe that the family decided they had to move temporarily to Seattle, Washington, so he could receive the proper treatment and medications he so desperately needed.
When they are able to return to Chichagof Island, they discovered that in their absence, floods have added insult to injury. People shared that almost everything will need to be rebuilt, but the Browns are not to be deterred. They plan to work hard to make everything even better and stronger than it was before. At least that is what they would like to do, but injuries sustained by both Noah and Billy could put a damper on making rapid progress on repairs to the homestead.

Another major issue the Browns will be facing during this season of Alaskan Bush People is the legal matter regarding the pleas that Billy and Joshua (Bam Bam) took in regard to lying on Permanent Fund dividend applications. In return for their guilty pleas, charges were dropped against several other family members that were named in the case. According to Alaska Dispatch News, both men reported to Juneau in mid-April to serve their 30-day sentences on ankle monitors.
Billy discusses their leaving during one of the sneak-peek scenes saying, “There’s still a dark cloud hanging over our head. When spring comes, I’ll be going to Juneau and going to jail, and Bam’s going to have to go with me.”
While Billy and Bam are away serving their 30-day sentence, the other family members will have to step up in order to take up the slack. Besides rebuilding, there will undoubtedly be a new garden to put in, and a lot of hunting and fishing taking place. Hopefully they can figure out a way to keep the bears out of Browntown, as well.

Perhaps as this season of Alaskan Bush People unfolds, the Brown family will be able to put everything behind them, and finally make the kind of life for themselves that they have always dreamed of. Whether viewers of the show like the family or not, one fact is indisputable. The Brown’s are definitely a very determined and close-knit family, and no one can fault them for that.
