'The Curse of Oak Island' Season 8 Episode 12: Did Velma lose her glasses? Fans mock Gary Drayton's discovery
It's another day on Oak Island, and it promises to be another exciting one. In the first few minutes of the episode, the team discovers glass and a heel from a human shoe. It's riveting for them, but fans don't quite get what all the fuss is about. It's glass, so how does that make it an unusual discovery? Of course, considering this show is a treasure trove for viewers, they can't stop poking fun at the team, as usual. As things stand, the team is sure that they are close to finding the real Money Pit, and are probably just inches away from it, or so they believe. We've heard these assertions before, so we're not going to get too excited... as yet.
Viewers have a lot to say about the episode and won't stop with their amused comments. "Move that road! Gary's getting excited over some sea glass....wth is pirate glass? #OakIslandCursers #curseofoakisland," a fan tweeted. "Oh. What luck. A random piece of glass laying right on top while the cameras were filming #oakisland #curseofoakisland," another wrote. One fan made a Scooby Doo reference and said that Velma had just probably lost her glasses. "Gawd, did Velma lose a piece of her glasses searching for the Oak Island treasure again?! #OakIslandCursers #CurseofOakIsland," one tweeted.

Currently, the team has discovered a shaft and is trying to understand the mystery of a square nail. Gary Drayton, their metal detector expert makes his usual joke "We nailed it, mate!"
Well, this season and the ones before, have been full of discoveries of nails and iron pegs, all supposed to be from a ship. But here's the question, for a while, they have been claiming that the anomaly at the bottom of the swamp is a shipwreck...why aren't they pursuing that lead? There could be more answers in the swamp. Yet, they are determined to scour every other part of the island and not pursue their old clues.
Nevertheless, the team is always optimistic, and they're sure that they'll get the answers they're looking for. Tune into History Channel, Tuesdays at 9 pm.
