Favorite Quotes:

* Scully: I just think it’s a good idea not to antagonize local law enforcement.
Mulder: Who me? I’m Mr. Congeniality.

* Scully: Mulder, stop running after your sister. This won’t bring her back.
Mulder: Come with me or don’t come with me. I’m not giving up on that girl.

Synopsis: Some people are sleeping outside around a fire next to a mobile home. The mobile home starts to shake violently. There are extremely bright lights and all stops. A little boy screams for his mom. She burns her hand opening the door. Her little son tells her Ruby is gone. They don’t find her. Section Chief Blevins is talking with Scully about an investigation he wants to do. Scully has not heard of it before. He hands Scully an X File, it’s about Mulder’s sister Samantha. She briefs him on what happened to Samantha. He’s going to deny the new investigation, but Scully asks to speak to Mulder first. Scully and Mulder talk. He explains where the girl went missing is a UFO hot spot. He shows her a report about girls scouts seeing a UFO decades earlier. One of those girl scouts is the mother of the missing girl. They go to talk to the mother. She introduces her son Kevin. Mulder brings up the UFO sighting. She believes the aliens took her daughter. Mulder talks to Kevin. He’s watching static on the TV. He’s writing 1’s and zero’s on a notepad. Kevin says it’s coming from the TV. The local sheriff is assuming that Ruby ran away. She was a “bad kid” so he is just assuming that what’s happened to her is a result of her behavior. When they come out they find a note on their windshield and see a lady across the street quickly walk away. They follow her and talk to her. She informs them she was supposed to meet her boyfriend, Greg Randall. He got Ruby pregnant. She tells them where he works and disappears. They go to the bar to find Greg. He’s been missing for 3 weeks. Mulder comments on his UFO tattoo. The bartender tells him about the lake and sightings there. And shows him his burned off ear. Scully sleeps in her room and people barge in. They’re looking for Mulder. They question him about where he got it and he won’t answer so they threaten him. He’s told it’s a defense satellite transmission. They leave and Scully comes in. The NSA goes to Darlene and Kevin’s house and destroys it. They haul Darlene and Kevin off. Mulder looks out the window and sees the camper. The roof is damaged from exposure to extreme heat. The boy and his mother get released. They refuse to talk to Mulder further. As they drive Mulder tells Scully that he thinks Kevin is a conduit. They go to the lake where it happened. At the campsite the closest trees are burned at the top. Sand on the beach has been turned into glass. A white wolf appears to them and Mulder follows it. He finds a pack on top of a pile of stones. He fires his weapon to clear them out. It’s a shallow grave. The victim is Greg Randall, Ruby’s boyfriend. Mulder checks out the wallet, nothing is missing but there is a doctor’s name and appointment written on sheet. The writing matches the writing on the note. The mysterious lady’s name is Tessa. She’s brought in for questioning. Scully and Mulder get her to talk a bit. The park around the lake is being searched and the lake is being dragged. They go back to see Darlene and Kevin. The door is open, the tea kettle is whistling, there’s pages of binary code on the floor. But they are not to be found. Scully goes upstairs and sees a different view of the 1’s and zero’s. They’re a portrait of Ruby. They go back to the lake and find the camper. But no one is in it. On the trail they find Darlene, Kevin’s continued on so Mulder goes after him. He’s walking towards a bright light. It’s a bunch of bikers. Kevin tells Mulder his sister is back. Scully screams for Mulder. Ruby is there but unconscious. Her test results indicate she was in a environment without gravity. As they are talking to Ruby, Darlene comes in and stops it. She doesn’t want her daughter ridiculed the way she has been her entire life.

Synopsis: The meet at Dan’s house to lay out a Plan A and Plan B for the hunt. They talk about the coconut fiber and then discuss the swamp. Dan states the swamp is shallow, only around 5 feet at it’s deepest point. Oak tree stumps were found in the swamp, but the oak tree can’t grow in water. Dan believes the swamp is man-made because of that. One theory is that the treasure is actually under the swamp and the money pit is just a decoy. At the edge of swamp site, they start clearing some trees so that they can drain it. Rick actually jumps into the swamp to start clearing debris. He finds it strange that the swamp bottom is flat. Alex and Jack are moving through a clearing and a tree nearly falls on them. Rick yells at them for not being safe and staying alert. The narrator discusses the six deaths that have taken place on the island and how grisly they. At the war room they discuss their plan to drain the swamp and search it’s bottom. Rick gets a call from Lee Lamb. She lost her father and brother on the island in 1965. She’s going to come and visit. She arrives and they all meet at Dan’s house. She brought with her the man who worked with her father and brother, the only one who survived the tragedy. Lee talks about her resentment and hatred of the island. Her father and brother dying on the island and her husband dying a few months later. She says the island’s curse is that things always go wrong. The island changes a person. The survivor who came with Lee does his best, as he is overcome with emotion, to tell what happened. Rick talks about how the island has affected many families and ruined many lives. Rick and Lee have one last meeting. She gives him maps and information. She loans him her brothers journals. He wrote them when he was on the island. The journals indicate that there was also a mystery box being searched for. As well as notes about it being buried at the bottom of the swamp. There are also notes regarding a circular tunnel. They all meet up back at the swamp. They go over the plan to pump the swamp. They have to move the water somewhere else on the island because it is brackish. It can’t just be dumped in the ocean. They lay out all the hoses and connect them up to the two water pumps. Dan Henske is discussed. He has lived on the island and hunted for the treasure for 50 years. He tells a story of becoming possessed by a spirit on the island. A story about weird lights is shared along with other paranormal stories. That evening at Dave’s house, Rick has invited a paranormal team who’s investigated previously to get their thoughts. The group goes down to the swamp, where several of the investigators find it very creepy. They actually do a paranormal investigation while there. The K2 meter starts going crazy. The next day they meet up at Dave’s house to discuss the draining of the swamp. They discuss the plan for searching the swamp. And also safety with the poison gas that they could encounter. They adjourn the meeting and head to the swamp. They switch on the pumps and then go check the discharge point to make sure it’s working. Water is coming out at the discharge point.

Synopsis: The guys are preparing to dive off of Smith’s Cove. Tony is with them. He’s dived in the area for years. He shares he’s experiences on where to dive. A team led by Dave has gone back to the 10X bore hole. They are going through all the debris in the sediment tank and putting it through a sieve. They find some wood and what looks like an oak leaf. The theory is that under the island are mines and tunnels, all lined with oak trees. The oak trees on the island are not native, they are believe to be brought by The Knights of the Templar. Still going through the sediment from the tank, they find bones. Alex takes the bones to pack them up for analysis. In Smith’s Cove Marty and Alex prepare to dive and investigate an anomaly on a sonar map. The three descend to 25 feet and begin searching for evidence of anything non-natural. Marty finds a large, rectangular stone, covered in growth. Then a second stone, a bit smaller than the first is found. The dive master finds one as well. So three total are found and they all form a straight line pointing directly at the money pit. The rocks also line up to a rock on the beach. They all meet up at a pub and discuss the dive. The four stones in a line. The discuss the sediment tank. The confirm that more metal was found as well as bones. The plan for the next day is to search for coconut fiber in the cove. It’s believed that the coconut fiber was on the island to filter the drain system. Digging commences in the Cove in the coconut fiber hunt. They drain some water out of the area so that they can dig. Dan leads the dig in the spot he believes the fibers to be. He does indeed find coconut fiber. They take some with them to show Rick and Marty. They give Rick the news. The water is an issue and they’ll get a pump. They show him the coconut fiber. Rick is thrilled. All the samples are taken to Acadia University to get tested. Historical information: The Knights Templar have grown too rich and are now being hunted as a threat. Those that are caught are burned to death. The Templar’s treasure has never been found. There were 12-14 ships with treasure that escaped. The second theory is that it’s a Spanish ship that did repairs on the island and buried some of its treasure there. The professor compares known coconut fibers to the fibers found on the island. Back at the 10X bore hole the sifting continues. Dave and Rick are finding rust and chicken bones. It’s gets a bit contentious. Rick decides to design a better system for sifting. At the college the professor is analyzing the fibers. He confirms that what they found in Smith’s Cove is indeed coconut fiber. Alex calls Rick to give him confirmation that the fibers are coconut fibers. In the war room they discuss results. They had the coconut fiber on the beach dated, it’s from 1260-1400 AD, with 95% accuracy.
