Realizing that there was no way for both of them to escape alive, the survivor cut his brother's Achilles tendon and let him die. The Survivor stops the vagabond's knife and draws his own knife at the last second and cuts the aggressor's throat. On the way back from burying Kathryn, the Survivor finds two rabbits trapped in some of their traps, which would have been enough food for three people if Kathryn had survived. Kathryn re-raises the idea of killing the Survivor, explaining that there is only enough food for two people.
Over the next few days, they fall into an awkward household routine next to the Survivalist; they farm during the day, have dinner together at night, and then Milja and the Survivor have sex every night. However, Kathryn and Milja plan to secretly kill the Survivor to reduce the amount of supplies used. Milja tells him she wants to stay; Kathryn immediately goes to the bathroom and vomits, realizing that Milja has poisoned her instead of poisoning the Survivor. After tracking them, the Survivor tries to load his shotgun but realizes that he is missing the shells.
The Survivor manages to shoot and kill one of the assailants, but is eventually shot with a crossbow. One day, the Survivor hears noise outside his cabin and rushes to find an elderly woman and a younger woman standing in front of his door. Thanks to the Survivalists crew, these families now know what it takes not only to survive in the wild, but also to thrive as a family. Kathryn offers the Survivor some jewels and seeds in exchange for some of his crops, but he declines, all the while holding them at gunpoint.
During the filming of Survivalists, the Adams family had to work together on tasks, such as building a tent. The Survivor returns to the cabin and tells Milja about his brother as he prepares the rabbits to eat. The assailant approaches the injured Survivor, first intending to shoot him again to kill him, but draws his knife instead, presumably to save the bullet. Soon after, Milja informs the Survivor without words that she is pregnant by placing her hand on her belly.
