Synopsis: They recap the work being halted due to a blockage. The chisel hammer is used and it gets torn up as well. The team prepares for the day, when Kathleen arrives on the island. She has new information to provide them and she also gets to see the cross they found. She’s very excited. Kathleen explains how they made necklaces of gold disguised as lead in shapes of rhomboids and crosses. They all head back to Smith’s Cove. She’s dying to do some digging. They next day they head back to the Money Pit to try and break through the blockage. They also start draining DMT. Rick, Gary and Marty head to Lot 8 to metal detect. An embossed keyhole is found. Could it fit with the key that Rick was given? This item looks handmade. Back at DMT, they prepare to lower a camera down to figure out what’s blocking the shaft. What they see on the camera doesn’t give them much. There’s just a lot of clay. But water is also starting to seep back in. It floods in in a massive gush. The team tries to puzzle out what’s in the shaft. They drillers feel that it’s a steel plate at 90 feet obstructing the path. Everyone meets in the war room (and digitally) to discuss the situation. Mike Huntley is mentioned. They want to have him dive it to figure out what is blocking the casing.
