Fred Lewis Visits Parker Schnabel

Looks like Gold Rush fans may already have a hint as to why Fred Lewis has returned to Discovery. Do fans finally get an explanation for his absence? The series’ Twitter page posted a sneak peek. Fred and his wife Khara paid a visit to none other than Parker Schnabel. First, they give each other a big hug. This is the first time they have seen each other in some time.

Fred talks to Parker about his gold mining struggles. Unfortunately, Parker reveals that he doesn’t have any ground. Parker listens as Fred reveals that he is not “quitting.” Furthermore, Fred is looking for work. Parker, who has a full team, and has had struggles this season, is unable to hire him. But there are no hard feelings. The men embrace, and the couple leaves.

This is a full-circle moment. Fred has returned to Parker, where it all started. Fred and Parker have a long history. Fred had joined Parker on his adventure to Papua New Guinea for Parker’s Trail. Parker was retracing his grandpa John Schnabel’s trail when he was a WWII soldier.

Unlike the first two seasons, this was an unstable place to visit. Therefore, Fred had replaced Rick Ness, who had starred along with Parker in the first two seasons of this spinoff series. Fred Lewis joined because he was a Special Forces Medic, and he had combat experience.
