IRT Deadliest Roads Full Episode Guide

  • On their last runs in Peru, all three trucking teams must deliver loads to a large, local festival, high into the Andes. Lisa and G.W. haul a load of bulls, some of which have G.W. running and diving out the bulls horns' reach.

  • The rookie team of Tino Rodriguez and Tim Zickuhr take on a dangerous job when they haul barrels of gasoline over roads wired with dynamite. Lisa and G.W. have to cross treacherous, decaying bridges to reach their destination. Meanwhile, Hugh races the clock--transporting a truck full of perishable, frozen fish.

  • The truckers take on the Peruvian Andes with their most fragile loads yet. G.W. and Lisa tackle "Dead Nun Canyon" with a load of dinosaurs too tall for the tiny tunnels. Meanwhile, Rookies Tim and Tino challenge veteran Hugh Rowland for his self-proclaimed "King of the Road" title.

  • Hugh Rowland goes on an old donkey trail with some dynamite on his almost impossible climb into the Andes.

  • Lisa Kelly and G. W. go on the same road that almost got the best of G. W. the day before. Now with Lisa behind the wheel and a heavier load, the mountain is rigged with dynamite and ready to explode.

  • The three teams of truckers exit Bolivia and head for Peru's deadly Andes Mountains passageways. Lisa Kelly finally hands the reins over to G.W. Boles, and he's ready to prove he's got what it takes on some of the worst roads on the planet.

  • The three teams are entertained when Tim Zickuhr and G.W. Boles enter the Bolivian Cholita Wrestling ring. On the road, Tino and Tim must use their emergency oxygen tank.

  • Lisa and G.W. take a load of live animals over the world's largest salt flat.

  • The rookie team are out to prove they can drive along with the veterans and challenge trucker Hugh Rowland to a race down the Death Road.

  • Trucker Lisa Kelly introduces her new partner, G.W. Boles, to the deadly roads. Hugh Rowland is still driving solo and doing the best he can. Tim Zickuhr, along with spotter Tino Rodriguez, takes on the Death Road hoping to keep their oversized-load from falling off the truck.

  • After two veteran truckers surrender and head home, Hugh Rowland and Lisa Kelly are forced to take on the Death Road without spotters. Lisa moves to the Southern Death Road and faces her biggest challenge so far, being alone. Tim and Tino are the rookie team and end up navigating treacherous cliffs as well as tight fits in town.

  • Dave and Lisa have a malfunctioning truck. Hugh and Rick battle the international language barrier and the muddy roads.

  • The testing ground for three teams of truckers, including veterans and two rookies, are on the roads of the Andes Mountains in South America. They tackle a thoroughfare called "the Death Road."

  • As the season comes to a close, the drivers have one last assignment, and it's their most dangerous and important: deliver barrels of aviation fuel for helicopter rescue missions.

  • A snowstorm threatens to cut the drivers' runs short atop the Rohtang pass. Rick's spotter, Boyo, leaves Rick for a better job, forcing Rick to do it alone. Lisa and Dave drive as fast as they can to beat the storm, but are slowed by mobs of people on the pass. All three drivers get caught driving in darkness and Lisa battles fatigue.

  • Tension escalates between Lisa and her spotter Tashi, forcing Lisa to think about saying goodbye to Tashi and forging ahead alone. Dave's forced to stop in the middle of his run to deal with his overweight load. Rick battles through illness to make his trip on time, giving everything he can into delivering on time.

  • After a severe storm isolates Rick, Lisa, and Dave in Keylong, Rick leads the charge back over the Rohtang Pass, betting against Mother Nature and the dangerous road. Dave and Rick struggle with an aggressive Indian driver and get caught in a landslide.

  • After conquering the Freefall Freeway, the Cutouts, and the Ledge, all three drivers climb higher, to an astonishing 13,000 feet, as they tackle the Rohtang Pass.

  • Three American and Canadian drivers head to India to take on the Himalayas, some of the most dangerous roads in the world.

  • Lisa is in grave danger with an oversized load when the mountain starts to give way. The unstable road weakens and claims its first victims. Dave's close scrape with the side of an oncoming bus causes the angry occupants to surround his vehicle in a showdown on a narrow ledge, a thousand feet up.

  • After surviving their first few days in India, the truckers face the most dangerous journey of their lives. Rick and Lisa go deeper into the Himalayas and up a new stretch of road called The Ledge--a one lane cliff-side path with a rock wall on one side and a sheer thousand-foot drop on the other. On the perilous journey up, Rick is bullied by local drivers, and Lisa panics while being forced to the edge of a cliff. Alabama highway trucker Dave Redmon joins the team and quickly has the most terrifying ride of his career. With one trucker already beaten by these roads, one of these three veterans may be the next to surrender.
