‘The Curse of Oak Island’ season 6 episode 18 will air tomorrow and it is titled ‘Heavy Metal.’ This episode comes with new discovery which strengthens Oak Island’s connection to the Knights Templar. It looks like Rick and Marty Lagina and their partners are getting closer to the Money Pit.
However, the sad news was reported that Dan Blankenship, a long-time treasure hunter of Oak Island, had passed away on Sunday, March 17. Dan died at the age of 95 peacefully from natural causes at the South Shore Regional Hospital.
Dan Blakenship was fascinated by Oak Island and the stories about it, so he decided to move there in 1965 from the USA. Since then, he has been dedicated to the quest of the treasures on Oak Island. Thanks to his knowledge and experience in treasure hunting, he was signed up for the reality series by Rick and Marty Lagina. The Lagina brothers immediately knew that Dan and his son will be of great significance and help in their search.
The cast and the crew all expressed their condolences to the Blakenship family via a post on their official Facebook page.
The new episode of ‘The Curse of Oak Island’ will be extremely exciting to watch, especially because there is an apparent connection between the Knights Templar and the island. The more items and discoveries are made, more stories appear to be actual truths.
