The Curse of Oak Island season 6 episode 20 aired yesterday and was titled ‘Short Days and Tall Knights.’ As winter is coming and days are getting shorter, the Lagina brothers and their team are short of time. However, if you didn’t get the chance to see the latest episode, keep reading. Let’s see what happened in season 6 episode 20 of ‘The Curse of Oak Island.’
The episode starts with a tense and critical moment as Rick and Marty Lagina and their partner Craig Tester have called an important meeting in the War Room. The reason for this meeting was to discuss a troubling new development. The crane operators went on strike in an effort to secure higher wages which means that the team cannot dig. Hence, they have to decide how to make the best use of the time they have left, especially if the strike last for three weeks. Therefore, they decide to continue working at Smith’s Cove and deal with all the facts they have.
A wooded structure was discovered at Smith’s Cove two days ago and they continue excavating around it. The team believes that it might be somehow connected with the flood tunnel system. The Lagina brothers believe that this structure was made to stop the flood at the Money Pit. Could this old wooden shaft have been dug by the legendary searcher, Robert Restall, more than 50 years ago? Could this lead them to the original Money Pit shaft?
Later that day, Gary Drayton and Jack Begley head to the island’s western shore to an area known as Lot 1. They are hoping to find more artifacts similar to the gold broch. Gary and Jack discovered old pottery which has the same blue color that was found in the Money Pit. Moreover, as they continue searching, they discover a military button, just like the one they found in the Money Pit two years ago.
In the War Room, Rick Lagina and the other team members welcome an important visitor, James McQuiston. James is an author, researcher, and historian who specializes in stories which connect the legendary Knights Templar to their possible history in North America. He shares his beliefs that the Knights Templar came to Nova Scotia, especially New Ross. He claims that there might be about half a million dollars buried on the island. James has helped the team understand more and connect one fact with another fact.
Hence, the day after the meeting Marty and Gary Drayton go to lot 16 in order to follow up on possible new connections. They decide to investigate a recently discovered stone well located near the Money Pit. They remove the cap of the well and scan the inside of it using a metal detector. They get a strong sound and a new possibility appears of what could have been buried there.
Marty Lagina and Gary Drayton continue the next day working on that spot. They unearth a piece of decorated leather. Could this piece be connected with the other artifacts discovered and could they all be connected to the Knights Templar?
Marty and Gary have decided to stop their excavation for now in order to develop a new strategy which will allow them to conduct a more thorough search. Then, the Lagina brothers go to Smith’s Cove with Laird Niven to apply a scientific method in order to determine the age of the wooden structures which have recently been found.
We are all eager to find out what will the test discover, while the team is very hopeful to put closure to their efforts.
