    According to the History Channel there was an episode aired on Tuesday (1/29/2019) but it didn't record for me. The history on the TiVo said that it was removed because the Guide changed.

    Did anyone get that episode?

    The guide did change. Sadly, it changed the title of the new slot by adding the "Digging Deeper" tag. My Pass is not set to pick up those expanded epsiodes, and thus I did not record the "Wharfs and All" episode. I'm manually picking it up next week. Thank you for pointing this out!

    Heads up for monkey business with the guide, not tonight but next week (Feb.19), where they're making the same mistake in marking the prime timeslot at "Digging Deeper" as they did last month. It looks like there is also a special "scrapbook" hour next week that isn't being picked up by my Pass, probably a clip show but should still be marked as new. (I'll post this in the Season Pass Alerts as we get closer to the 19th, in case the guide shuffles some more)

    "Digging Deeper" is the usual expanded hour. The regular new timeslot for tonight is marked as a "Drilling Down" special, and the episode number may be wrong or misleading. Either way, my Season Pass was not picking it up as new.

    Can't believe they and all of us missed the obvious answer, leprechaun.

    Could it be? The curse of oak island is an actual curse of a leprechaun? Can the strange occurrences be leprechaun mischief? Will the money pit be the pot of gold at the end of rainbow?

    How big of a revelation is it that the dye found its way to Smith's Cove? Seems, on its surface, that this is bombshell evidence that the flood tunnels actually DO exist. And if they exist, and can be proven to be man-made, that is bombshell evidence that someone went to great pains to ensure the money pit would be flooded when exposed. While they often state the existence of the flood tunnels as fact, it has never been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, right? To me, this would be the single biggest Eureka moment of the Laginas' adventure so far.

    That’s one of the problems of Oak Island, what is myth, what is speculation and what is a proven fact. The Lagina’s are mostly covering ground already taken, some of the things many times over by different groups. They’re trying to prove which of the myths and speculations are actual facts.

    The dye test has been done before by Dan Blankenship and it identified Smith’s Cove as one spot, but the Lagina’s are trying to pinpoint the exact location in Smith’s Cove. Others have drilled between the Money Pit and Smith’s Cove and used explosives in attempts to block the flood tunnels. But I’m not sure if the flood tunnel(s) between the Money Pit and Smith’s Cove were actually found and proven.

    I am not a geologist, so maybe I don't understand how islands work. Wouldn't all water eventually percolate out to the ocean, naturally? Unless the bedrock was solid diamond, I imagine there being enough cracks and porous material for every deep hole to eventually hit a table of ocean water. The hydraulics of the situation are not well-explained, but I can't see how a dye test can ever prove whether a flow is man-made and not structural.

    Just the whole idea that someone would bury treasure, create an elaborate system of flood tunnels that would not only kill whoever was trying to reach the treasure but destroy the treasure, and THEN leave a note telling people to keep digging because they are almost at the treasure, is just too stupid to even comprehend.

    The whole island is porous limestone. Water seeps right through it, and doesn't need tunnels to do so.

    You also have to add dug so deep with shovels or what ever else they had back then, that cant be done now. The other assorted digging and building for the alleged trap(s), lets say they could and did would have taken lifetimes to complete, part of legend was they saw lights and heard noises for a few nights.

    The brothers grey went away so gradually I didn't notice. Its bad enough the naming things similar to get DVR's to record and viewers confused, done with this and others. But having completely different show tacked on end and listing as 2 hour show is awful.

    It could of been a guild problem, but the other show was most likely added because Marty Lagina is a producer for both of the shows (The Curse of Oak Islnad & The Curse of Civil War Gold). Oddly the second showing of the episode had both shows as separate one hour episodes.

    I think this might be a new trend used by the History / Discovery channels. Deadliest Catch has started to group two episodes together in a 2 hour recording then later it's splits them in to one hour episodes and Tivo ends up recording 4 hours for just 2 episodes because it thinks the one hour episodes are new. Same thing happened with Gold Rush and Gold Rush: White Water.
