Dye Harder

The Curse of Oak Island Season 6 Episode 16 – Tuesday, March 12, 2019, on History channel


First released in January 2014, the reality TV series The Curse of Oak Island might be coming to end soon. All these years, we’ve followed the Lagina brothers and their exploration for the island’s treasure. This is a 57-hectare island located in the Lunenburg County, on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. There were many ups and downs, important discoveries and some disappointments, but now it seems that the upcoming Season 6 episode will bring more excitement, what we’ve waited for all along their search for the historical artifacts and treasure – the answer to this fascinating mystery.


According to some speculations, the new episode will bring Rick and Marty and their team a step forward after their discovery in the last episode, Dye Harder, which aired last week. In case you’ve missed it, during their excavation in H8, the ground started collapsing, and they found out that the Money Pit and H8 were surrounded by huge sinkholes, which came as a surprise for everyone. They also found out that, in some ways, the tunnel is connected to Smith’s Cove. Naturally, due to ground collapsing, they were then forced to stop the excavation at the moment, for safety purposes, but we’re sure they’ll find a solution to this problem, too, just like they did many times before.

Furthermore, we find out that Jack and Alex will probably explore the underwater surrounding the island in search of answers. However, it still remains to be seen whether they’ll manage to find anything that will help solve the mystery and find the long-lost treasure.

So, Season 6 Episode 16 will reveal what the team decided to do after they’d been forced to stop their exploration in H8, and will possibly bring the series to an end. Of course, this hasn’t been officially confirmed, so don’t miss the new episode which is set to air on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, on History channel. You can also watch it online via the History Channel app or other online streaming providers such as Sling, Roku, and Hulu.

The Curse of Oak Island Season 6, Episode 15, “Dye Harder”


The latest episode of the popular History Channel shows The Curse of Oak Island aired on March 5, 2019, titled “Due Harder”. Read on to find out what happens in the newest episode.

In the new episode, Rick Lagina and Craig Tester investigate the damage that a sinkhole caused at the Money pit drill site two days ago. This happened during the H8 excavation. At first, it did not seem as serious. However, they were proven wrong, and now it may not be safe to continue the operation. Vanessa Lucido from ROC Equipment is concerned about the safety of everything surrounding the area. Mark Monahan from Irving Equipment Limited thinks he should put the vibro hammer on the hole. This is a massive hydraulic, which will eventually settle and stabilize the ground around H8. There is a chance of a larger cave-in as well. They proceed with this plan.


Meanwhile, Marty Lagina, Dave Blankenship, Jake Begley, and Gary Drayton meet with a heavy equipment operator Billy Gerhardt to continue the Smith’s Cove operation. Since they have started this excavation, they came across wooden and concrete walls, structures, and a wooden slipway. The stone box drain is perhaps the most important finding yet here. They hope to follow it to the Money Pit. They only come across a metal bucket.

The following morning, the H8 operation continues. Rick and Marty call a War Room meeting. They think about doing a dye test again, this time with fluorescent red color. This can prove there are connections between flooding systems and the seawater. They decide to observe the result with three drones and a boat.

Later in the day, Marty and Alex Lagina, Jack Begley and Peter Fornetti travel to Laurencetown, Nova Scotia, to meet with the members of the Centre of Geographic Sciences to see some results of a recent water scan. They hope to locate a flooding system on the southern shore of the island. They find out there are two vents on the ocean floor, which may be the proof of a second flooding system. There is also a triangle object there, another triangular shape on the island. The data is satisfying.


It is a new day, as Rick and Marty start the dye test. They set up a viewing area to see the potential color in the water live. They come across a problem with the pump and the hose. The hose twisted and could snap. They restart the pump, and fill the C1 with water. They add the red dye and hope it will turn out somewhere. The drones are in the air, while a team is also on a boat. Everyone is looking at different exit points, expecting to see red. Dan Blakenship, now 95, visits the viewing area. Finally, at Smith’s Cove excavation area, Gary Drayton finds some red dye. However, it may be a rust color from something. They take water samples to test if there are traces from their dye. At the Research Centre on Oak Island, they conduct the tests. The test is successful, proving the dye came through all the way to the Smith’s Cove. The flood tunnel might, after all, be connected to Smith’s Cove. Rick comes to check it and is more than pleased.

The week that started with a catastrophe and a cave-in at H8 that seemed like an end to the whole operation, ended with some major promises that make the overall atmosphere in the team more than pleasant. On Oak Island, positive outcomes like this one are rare, and everyone is aware of this. What is to come? Will they come across more interesting findings? Tune in to the next week’s episode to find out.

The Curse of Oak Island Season 6 Episode 15 – Everything You Need to Know

‘The Curse of Oak Island’ season 6 episode 15, ‘Dye Harder’, will air on March 5 on History at 8 p.m. Until we wait for Tuesday, here is everything we know about the next episode.


The Lagina brothers and their team are going to face a challenging week and a huge crisis. The issue they are going to deal with might eventually put an end to the whole exploration venture and lose track of the Money Pit. We will see Rick and Marty Lagina thinking about a new plan in the new episode. In fact, they have to come up with a new strategy as their treasure hunt is facing a risk of disappearing. Their multi-million dollar treasure hunt might become history as the sinkhole they were digging is becoming wider and they have to be very careful how to proceed. Even though the Lagina brothers and their team planned to continue digging with the use of a 3-ton hammer grab tool, they might need to change their plan.

The crew received information that the ground is unstable and a big collapse can happen any time. The reason behind this is the fact that the location known as the Money Pit had been dug on for years. Hence, there are over 40 shafts, multiple holes, and tunnels in this location.

So, if a collapse like that happens, it will mean that the search will come to an end. Although this would bring a lot of disappointment, the Lagina brothers are sure that safety is most important to them. Thus, in the next episode of the sixth season, we will be able to see whether the search will continue.

Moreover, we will also learn more about the results of the testing for the objects they discovered so far. The materials they found, which have been believed to be pieces of leather and paper, turned out to be just bark of a tree. The material which was assumed to be a paper, it was discovered that it is a few centuries old and it might actually be part of a medieval manuscript believed to be buried in the Money Pit. So, the season 6 episode 15 will probably give us all the answers we have been looking for.
