Synopsis: From the war room, they call those that are not on the island and show them the cross. Laird is not quite sure what to make of it, as he has not seen anything like this before. Laird doesn’t think it’s been exposed to air, as there isn’t a white patina on it. Back at the money pit, the digging on H8 continues. Since hitting what appears to be a hard, flat surface they have switched to a slightly smaller can to continue the dig. Jack has found pottery in the spoils from about 150 feet deep. The brothers check in with the geologist. He feels the team is in some kind of vault or void. The vault seems to have disappeared. Rick and Gary Drayton head back to Smith’s Cove where they found the cross to do more metal detecting. Gary finds another piece of lead. It’s an odd shape and possibly a spoon. Gary feels that the storms are uncovering items. The spoils from 162 feet are examined and good things are found including a bone and pottery. Marty is frustrated that putting a small shaft in H8 got so many results but when going with the large casing they don’t get very much else. Craig thinks that whatever it was has either gone past it, or it was pushed out of the casing path. That evening another meeting takes place in the war room. They are getting new results from a metal detecting probe that was run down all the small-bore holes. The expert explains the results. It shows that at around 150 feet there are significant anomalies in H8. It also shows that not all the bore holes went straight down, some have deviated. Again, everyone meets in the war room with a few more people to decide on more drilling or to stop the drilling. They now want to take a look at an area south of where they have drilled. While deciding on the next drill site, Craig announces that he will be leaving the island for the rest of the season. He wants to be with his wife to grieve the loss of his son, Drake. They decide on the last hole and also to name it DMT after Drake.
