He is the leader of AIMS (Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings), a troupe that investigates the things in the woods. With a common goal to prove the existence of enigmatic bodies like Lizard Man, Werewolf and Bigfoot, the team tries to capture these creatures. It was revealed on season 4 first episode, that following his encounter with the Stonish Giant, he had to undergo an emergency surgery for a blood clot in his leg.
Reportedly the surgery didn’t go so well, which put him down for several months. Later in the season, he returned to the show but he had to watch from the side while recovering. His death rumors were followed by the news of his health scare. So, to ensure fans about his good health, AIMS team visiting him in the hospital was featured in the show.
