Highway Thru Hell - Season 1 Episode 8 -
Yin & Yang
Why is one guy always happy, while another is always pissed off? Kevin considers yard man/swamper Samy, a 40-year-old immigrant from Fiji, to be his assistant. When Kevin buys a video camera to film wrecks, his new hobby starts to get in the way of his current job. A head-on collision between two semis has the entire crew battling to clear the charred wreckage and get the road open. While Kevin captures the action on tape, Samy does most of the heavy lifting and dismantling of the burnt wreck, earning him a large bottle of scotch and Jamie's praise, even when he removed the barrel that could have been used to contain an oil leak, which heaped pressure to do a 2-hour salvage operation in just 20-minutes just to open the highway. That night, Samy, who sleeps in Jamie's office during the week, reveals that his hard work is all for his beloved wife and three kids. Meanwhile, Kevin, reviewing his footage at home, reveals that his video hobby started with his father, who worked in TV. When Kevin announced as a teen that he wanted to be a truck driver, his dad cut him off and hasn't seen him in over 20 years. He considers Jamie to be his adopted father. The next day, a harrowing drive up the Coq in dangerous avalanche conditions leaves both Kevin and Samy questioning why they do this for a living. Samy returns to Vancouver to visit his family while Kevin raises safety issues with Jamie. Since Kevin's truck was a converted fire truck, it has no protection from collisions.
