Miranda offered to go and search for him, but her mum strongly disagreed at first and did not let her go, she didn't want to lose both of them, but soon enough, Jon went to search for him. After freezing for hours, they finally found Matt.
The characters are rejoicing. Finding Matt was big, they did not want to lose him. After finding Matt, they snow still proceeds to snow. They may be going to be out of water soon, so they need to conserve. Soon, Christmas rolls around.
