Lost Gold of World War II Full Episode Guide

  • In the season finale, the team finally reaches the void space under the waterfall, giving them a glimpse of what lies inside. But excitement is short lived when unexpected visitors get in the way. Meanwhile, the team investigates leads for other possible Yamashita treasure sites throughout the Philippines, uncovering evidence that any one of their 25 new treasure maps could lead them to the Lost Gold of WWII.

  • When a dead end in the tunnel threatens to close the door on exploration, a back door opens. Using their recently decoded Golden Lily map, the team discovers new access points, hoping to get under the waterfall by any means necessary.

  • As the team finally gets to the bottom of Breach 6, startling new evidence suggests they might be too late. Meanwhile, the miners trigger a hazard in the tunnel that threatens their safety. Finally, Bingo unearths alarming evidence a little too close to home, about who else could be after the gold.

  • John and Rick work to decipher a Golden Lily map while Breach 6 reveals its first piece of treasure. Meanwhile, Levi and Geo come up with a creative solution to get past a mysterious collapse in the tunnel. And finally, while drilling towards a possible treasure vault, John and Rob make a startling discovery, and come face to face with unexpected visitors.

  • Left with no other option, John plans to drill across the mountain to get underneath the waterfall, but the weather won't make this an easy task. Meanwhile, Rick finds an artifact at Breach 6 that could confirm Japanese military presence on the mountain during World War II. Then, Levi and Geo make a grim discovery in the tunnel that risks shutting down the site indefinitely. And finally, Bingo meets someone with rare and valuable knowledge on the whereabouts of Yamashita's gold.

  • John is determined to find a way in as new evidence suggests the location of a possible treasure vault beneath the waterfall. But mother nature is wreaking havoc on his plans. Meanwhile, surprising information is revealed about the knife discovered in the tunnel pointing to who could have left it behind. And finally, a promising clue uncovered at Breach 6 has the team going all in.

  • American treasure hunter John Casey returns to the Philippines with a new team and new technology, in a continued effort to solve one of the greatest mysteries of World War II. It's all hands on deck, when an advanced satellite scan of the mountain reveals massive metal deposits underground. Based on these results, the team targets three sites believed to be the access points to Yamashita's gold: a waterfall; a crater known as "Breach 6"; and a camouflaged tunnel they uncovered last year.

  • A man warns Peter of the risks of searching for Yamashita's treasure, and a connection to the CIA, as the team moves mountains to clear the last obstacles and finds a secret tunnel directly into the mountain.

  • The team zeroes in on a tunnel that may be part of the treasure labyrinth. Bingo learns that part of dictator Ferdinand Marcos' fortune may have been stolen from Yamashita's Treasure and uncovers a possible link to a CIA conspiracy.

  • The team attempts to prove if a tunnel exists behind a unique formation of rocks they believe is a secret backdoor entrance into the mountain. Battling a typhoon and possible Nazi concrete, the team ultimately finds proof of a void 40-feet below.

  • Unable to find a tunnel at the waterfall, the team is guided by an animal marker to a boulder carved in the shape of a turtle. Following the direction of the turtle head, the team discovers a Golden Lily symbol indicating a secret backdoor entrance.

  • The team triggers a possible water trap in the cave and is forced to stop digging. Martin Flagg believes the Story Rock indicates a tunnel behind a waterfall and the team brings in a Navy diver to explore the plunge pools and search for an entrance.

  • After discovering a bomb marker, the team brings in an explosives expert to search a cave that may have been a headquarters of Gen. Yamashita during the war; a potential booby trap and the first hint of treasure.

  • Digging continues at Breach-6, but when the team unearths a possible water trap the excavation is put on hold; the team conducts a LiDAR scan that reveals a cave, perhaps used by Japanese soldiers during the war.

  • A team of Americans explores a mountain in the Philippines to search for a treasure rumored to have been buried by Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita in the closing months of World War II.
