In the most recent episode of Alaskan Bush People, one member of the family began to finally break down. While the season focused on Birdie Brown’s problems getting over the death of their father Billy Brown, it turned out Rain Brown was struggling just as badly.

Rain Brown Breaks Down On Alaskan Bush People

When the new season of Alaskan Bush People started, Birdie Brown showed that she was struggling with dealing with her dad’s death last year. She learned there was a notebook that Billy was writing in to give to his kids after he died. She hoped there was a letter to her from him too, but when one wasn’t found, she grew more depressed.

Mother Ami wrote her a letter from her and Billy and told her she had to read it in Alaska where the family grew up. Noah Brown was already going to Alaska to find a new home for his family, and he agreed to take Birdie. That is when Birdie learned she had two tumors and needed surgery to remove them. After this, 19-year-old Rain agreed to accompany them to captain the boat and help Birdie.

No one knew what Rain was going through though. She learned to captain the boat from her dad, Billy. This was her first time doing it without him. She weathered storms and got them there. Rain also had to help watch Birdie, who was determined to do things she shouldn’t be, putting more pressure on her.

In the last episode, Rain got sick. She grew more depressed and struggled to maintain her role as the strong one. At 19, no one should have expected this much from her. Not surprisingly, she suffered a mental break.

When Birdie and Rain were on Mossman Island, where Birdie grew up, both girls began to feel the loss of Billy. However, Birdie never realized how much pain Rain felt as well. As they were talking on the island, Rain said she had spoken to Billy and that he told her to tell Birdie that she had done enough and was where she needed to be.

Birdie didn’t seem to know how to react. This is also nothing new. Last year, Rain said in an interview with Hollywood Life that she believed her dad spoke to her through the radio. “He absolutely gives me signs from beyond. 100 percent. Some of these signs are so blatantly obvious and these signs happen to all of us almost every day,” Rain said.

When the episode of Alaskan Bush People ended this week, a title card said that Rain had sought professional help upon returning to Washington to help her deal with her grief. With a great support system at home, fans hope she can find what she needs. At her age, she doesn’t need the weight of the world to be on her shoulders.
