'Swamp People': Tribute To Mitchell Guist; Gator Pulled On Board That's Not Dead Yet (VIDEO)

Fans of "Swamp People" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) mourned the loss of Mitchell Guist alongside the latest episode, which kicked off with a tribute to the series star. Guist passed away Monday after reportedly suffering a seizure while out on the waters. The official cause of death for the 47-year old was natural causes, according to CNN.

But while fans mourned his passing, the adventure continued on the muddy waters. Troy was out on the waters with his son Chase for some quality father-son time, but that time quickly became dangerous when they hauled on board an alligator that wasn't nearly as dead as they'd first thought.

The beast started moving its mouth open and closed, and then moving across the floor of the boat, while Chase jumped out of the way. To make matters worse, Chase was out of bullets, so he had to quickly reload while keeping an eye on the animal before he could finally put it down.
