Oak Island – Season 10 Finale

Season 10 of The Curse of Oak Island has finally come to an end after a year of new discoveries and theories. They have wandered all over the island and across the pond as they investigated the mystery.

This week on Oak Island they started by showing them drilling a larger probe hole at the bottom of the Garden Shaft. They were looking for the possible tunnel.

The team members also took a look at the circular stone structure on Lot 5. They continued to excavate to determine the extent of the structure.

They had a meeting about the wood fragments from the stone ramp in the swamp. One fragment came back with a possible date as early as the late 15th century.

They had taken the time to determine how to present things each week to build suspense and keep viewers tuned in. It is interesting that as I write this for the season finale, the next season has actually started on Oak Island. Someone commented on a previous post that they are already drilling holes again in the Money Pit area.

The structure of the surrounding wall may have a section filled with rubble similar to the old stone wall they found. They also found some old nails with metal detecting which may show there had been a structure built atop the structure.

Rick and Marty descended down into the Garden Shaft after they were unsuccessful in penetrating the possible tunnel with the larger drill bit.

Gary also joined them with his metal detector and got a non-ferrous signal while scanning the area at the bottom of the shaft.

Unfortunately for them, it was the last day that they could be in the shaft as the permits were expiring and they would also need new permits to excavate deeper.

They also share some more water testing results and it seems that there is something significant within 15 feet of the bottom of the Garden Shaft.

The last part of the episode was filled with hope of finding something in the next season as the team shared some last impressions.

The team then made their physical departure from the island, but I am sure that the island will be deep in some of their thoughts during the off-season. They will still be their emotionally as they continue to analyze the results from the season.

There was of course no preview of the next episode as the season has ended.

Will there be a season 11? Based on the talk in the season finale, they will back again. (Plus, it seems that they are already back at work)

I am sure that in the next months there will be some Digging Deeper episodes and also special episodes about theories, etc…

I have a list of books that I want to read before the next season airs. I may share something about them when I start reading them.
