Bering Sea Gold Season 17 Episode 10: ‘A Murky Future’ Release Date & Recap
The gold prospecting series on Discovery Channel is always entertaining to watch; these long-form, unscripted reality adventure programs demonstrate how people will stop at nothing to discover gold when the weather is poor. That sums up Season 17 of Bering Sea Gold, which has seen its share of highs and lows for these three teams thus far.
Each episode of the show unveils a new surprise as the three crews dealing with various issues—such as equipment failures, staffing shortages, resignations and firings, and problematic ounce yields—continue to be plagued by the perilous waters of the Bering Sea Straight and its harsh weather.
The crew is having a heated conversation at the beginning of the episode because there is not enough money, time is running out, and the challenges they are facing are eating up the budget. However, things continue to go forward.
We watch as Shawn starts to work out a plan with his father regarding the fall of the inland mine. He believes there is a chance, and despite his dad’s hesitation to put up the money, the agreement must be completed; otherwise, it would collapse.
We then move on to Emily, who was able to find a new diver. Things got sticky after a few conversations about expectations, a confession, and an account of how her poor work relationships with prior divers had put her in a difficult situation when it came to the calendar gradually drying out.
In this episode, Emily fires her divers during the ice-mining season. She is left without any dives and is unsure of what to do next once her last diver departs. I now have to question if Vern has indeed had a lot of terrible luck or if the editing was done to give the impression that he is a bit of a wicked black snake.
Still on Vern, during surgery, his alternator burns out and fails miserably; this is the third alternator to fail, which implies that it is the second from the previous season. Vern has to quit wasting time and money by having a mechanic check his truck’s electrical wiring.
This episode fell short of providing us with the whole amount that Chris’s fifteen-hour dive cost; instead, we were given an approximate estimate of ninety ounces of gold, which changed to 23 ounces as the show went on. Is this an incorrect estimate? Alternatively, are they manipulating the data to reduce Chris’s tax liability?
The crews then have to work quickly to extract as much gold as possible before the waves begin to strike them during a major storm that is predicted to bring severe weather. Luckily, they can find their way back.
Regarding divers, we also witnessed Chris’s ability to dive alone. He controlled himself well, shivering and trembling as he made contact with the water, but that was his specialty. He utilized the equipment and found no difficulty in completing the tasks required to retrieve the gold from the ocean floor.
While the fleet tries to put itself back together following the catastrophic storm, Shawn searches for a new location. Chris has terrible problems seeing underwater. Reaper Nation makes a valiant effort to save their season, but Team Emily can reclaim the gold.
