Eureka! Or what passes for it on Oak Island. If you’re waiting for someone to die from the task of treasure hunting, tune in next season.
We have to offer our apologies again to the Lagina brothers of the reality show Curse of Oak Island. After four seasons, on the finale, they appear to have struck pay dirt, not mere payola from the ratings.
We don’t want to give away all the spoilers, but we can assure you that plenty of digging is left for another season.
Women finally showed up on Oak Island, and they proved to be most interesting.
In particular, we loved Dr. Lori, an archaeologist who knows her stuff from Penn State University. She brought good news on several occasions and brightened the show with her sharp energy. She dated material brought up from the dregs of 170 feet below the surface to the 1575 to the 1675 era.
It looks like Spanish galleon stuff stolen from Central American goldsmiths and lost empires.
You probably will get some pleasure out of seeing what they dig up after suffering many frustrating episodes over four years. We felt happy that the theories of 93-year-old Dan Blankenship have been supported –and he was there as a witness.
A few others, like Alex Lagina, son of Marty, were absent despite all his work for the past four years. And Marty goes all out to commend brother Rick if no one else will. Take that, you skeptical bloggers.
There’s nothing sweeter than self-congrats.
The amazing discoveries put a strong denial on our past charges of fake news.
Yes, it got quite interesting at the end of season four. We are left hanging from the yard-arm until next year, matey.
