A team of Americans attempts to solve one of the great mysteries of World War II. With the help of an eyewitness, they explore a mountain in the Philippines
X Marks the Spot
Digging continues at Breach-6, but when the team unearths a possible water trap, excavation is put on hold. To find another way into the mountain, the team conducts a LiDAR scan that reveals a cave, perhaps used by Japanese soldiers during the war.
After discovering a bomb marker, the team brings in an explosives expert to search a cave that may have been a headquarters of General Yamashita during the war. Inside, they uncover a potential booby trap, along with their first hint of treasure.
What Lies Beneath
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.
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 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.
Blood & Conspiracy
As 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.
Peter meets with a man who warns of the deathly 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.
