HBO Max ‘Station Eleven‘ is set after a devastating virus wipes out the majority of humanity.
The Travelling Symphony, a Shakespearean artists’ ensemble, suffers with the death of their former director at the hands of a cruel Prophet twenty years after the tragedy.
The emotional post-apocalyptic drama’s sixth and seventh episodes explore Kirsten’s journey through two realities — one in which she pursues the Prophet with the purpose of killing him, and the other in which a much younger Kirsten seeks refuge with Frank and Jeevan.

Let’s make sure we’ve covered everything in the episodes because they provide a lot of intricate facts regarding the show’s huge plot.
Here’s a breakdown of episodes 6 and 7 of ‘Station Eleven.’
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Recap of Episodes 6 and 7 of Station Eleven
The sixth episode, titled ‘Survival is Insufficient,’ begins with Gil’s terrible demise.
Kirsten sets out to find and destroy the Prophet once and for all, as the Travelling Symphony mourns.
The rest of the troupe of artists travels to the next town but is hampered by rain. The strange man from the Museum of Civilization appears out of nowhere, inviting the group to perform at the “museum.”
When he says that there is warmth and safety at the museum, the members of the Traveling Symphony reluctantly accept his offer.
Meanwhile, a gang of children ambush Kirsten and carry her to the Prophet. She jumps at him, realising he is already harmed, but the Prophet immediately reminds her that if he dies, the Traveling Symphony would perish.
He then tells Kirsten that her group has been kidnapped by museum employees and offers to drive her there.
The Prophet and Kirsten set out, accompanied by a group of children to whom he frequently reads the storey of the Station Eleven comic.
A troop of Red Bandanas attacks them soon after, killing one of the youngsters and shooting Kirsten with a poisoned dart.
Kirsten feels the affects of the poison as a nasty blue rash slowly grows up her arm from the wounds in Episode 7, titled ‘Goodbye My Damaged Home.’
She has a vision of herself as a child and is transported back to her time with Jeevan and Frank in the latter’s apartment.
The rest of the episode follows Frank, Jeevan, and Kirsten as they try to make sense of the cataclysmic catastrophe from their high-rise apartment in the early days of the pandemic.
How Does Jeevan’s Brother Frank Die in Station Eleven Episodes 6 and 7? Do you think Frank has a drug Problem?
The three odd friends spend Christmas together, and we catch flashes of the two brothers discussing Kirsten’s parents and sister’s deaths.
As the weeks pass, the electricity and phone lines are lost, and the three are forced to survive on rations.
Even as Jeevan becomes increasingly angry about staying in the apartment, Kirsten begins writing on a play.
He ultimately steps out of his barricaded apartment and explores the remainder of the building.
Kirsten performs the performance with Frank and Jeevan the next day. However, a stranger with a knife enters the room during the scene in which Frank’s character dies.
Frank makes the ultimate sacrifice by attacking the stranger first and is stabbed, while Jeevan eventually dispatches the intruder.
After laying Frank to rest in his bed, the bereaved brother and Kirsten pack their possessions and leave the building for good, searching for food and shelter.
As a result, Frank dies and sacrifices himself for Jeevan and Kirsten. Frank’s death, on the other hand, is alluded to on several previous times when he refuses to realise that they are running out of food and insists on staying in his apartment.
Frank is progressively revealed to be a recluse who has not left his flat in two years. Frank’s leg has been permanently damaged as a result of an explosive injury.
He appears to have been hooked to painkillers and then heroin as a result of the injury, which Jeevan discovers and is disturbed by.
Frank, on the other hand, is adamant about not leaving his house or stopping using the opiate, claiming that it helps him write.
As supplies run short, it becomes evident that, despite Jeevan’s repeated pleas, Frank intends to die at his apartment.
The fact that Kirsten casts Frank as Lonagan, the play’s main character, who was killed, foreshadows Frank’s death and even indicates that Kirsten is aware of it.
What is the Plot of the Play?
Kirsten’s play, which she is working on with Frank and Jeevan at their apartment, is based on the Station Eleven comic book.
She appears to take a specific aspect of it and stage an elaborate show complete with homemade costumes.
The scenario of the cryptic comic largely reflects actual events in the narrative, and Frank is stabbed by the intruder shortly after his character, Lonagan, is slain, as has happened before.
Unfortunately, Kirsten holds herself responsible for Frank’s death since she pleaded with Jeevan to stay another day at the flat before leaving it for good.
She believes that if they hadn’t left the day before and hadn’t done her play, the intruder wouldn’t have shown up, and Frank would have been safe.
The recollection has tormented her so much that the grown-up Kirsten begs her younger self not to write the play so they can depart a day sooner in her (poison-induced) hallucination.
