["Guajira Sicodélica"
by Los Destellos plays]

[fingers snapping]

- He's out.
- All right.

So Tres Rocas, that's where Neville said
we would find the guy.

Solana, that's the archaeological site.

I think that's
where they're taking my dad.

Neville gave me this map.

He said it should be...
here. [clears throat]

- This? This is the map we're following?
- He's the only guy who's been there.

[Sarah] Pretty janky, John B.

Oh boy.

I've been in river towns like this.
Major danger, you know?

- [sighs]
- [Pope] Don't worry.

We're gonna get there,
find Singh, boost your pops.

And then we'll find El Dorado.
It's a layup.

[Ward snores]

You sure he doesn't know anything?

[hesitates] Not from me.

[John B] Okay, first thing,
we gotta find this guy named Jose

and then head upriver.

[propeller engines whirring]

We're gonna be landing
about a couple hours out of Tres Rocas,

at a farm.

- It's right here.
- A couple of hours?

Yeah, but Barracuda Mike

says there's a bus into town
we should be able to catch, so...

Jayj, what if they're not there?

If they're not there...

free vacation.

We're on an adventure, baby. Come on now.

- [distant shouting]
- [fireworks exploding]

[Singh] There he is,
our intrepid translator.

Mr. Routledge, leading
the charge on the road to El Dorado.

Look, Carlos,

it's not like I'm translating French,
all right?

[splutters] I need more time.

[scoffs] Of course. Of course.

You have a few hours.

Prove to me
you're worth keeping alive, John.

[ominous music plays]

[dog barking]

[Cleo] I told you,

it's the Wild West out here.

[Ward] Sarah!

- [Sarah] Dad, what are you doing?
- I'm coming.

[Sarah] No, you're not.

You got us here like you said you would.
Now go on to Guadeloupe.

- You're in over your head.
- [Sarah] You need a doctor.

- Let me help, please.
- [Sarah] No!

Get back in the plane.

You promised
you weren't a part of this. No.


[Sarah] Let's get the hell out of here.

[Ward] Let's go.

[birds chirping]

[workers speaking Spanish]

Damn. Barracuda Mike's got
this import-export thing down.

[indistinct chatter]

Yo, Barracuda, is that our executive coach
to Tres Rocas right there?

It is, smart-ass. Hey.

We have a deal, remember?
You still owe me for that lost load.

I remember, all right?

Hey, JJ.

- What?
- Word of advice.

- What?
- This ain't Kildare.

Try and lay low.

[JJ] Sure thing, chief.

[Latin music plays]

[crowd cheering]

[car horn honking]

[Pope exhales]

Thank you. Gracias.

- [Pope] There's a lot going on.
- [Cleo] Looks like it's a local holiday.

So we got to assume
that Singh's already gone upriver.

We're looking for a guy named Jose.
He's gonna take us to the dig site.

- Jose. Do you have a last name or...
- I do not have a last name.

Shit. It's gonna be like trying
to find a teardrop in the ocean.

I'm assuming river guides
probably hang out by the river.

But if they're like the guides at OBX,
they're probably getting drunk on holiday.

- [Sarah] Let's start with the bars.
- Okay.

- [Sarah] Divide and conquer?
- [John B] Let's do it.

[rhythmic music plays]

- [in Spanish] Sorry, I don't know.
- [in English] Hi. Jose? Panga?


- Do you know Jose? Tourist guide?
- No.

[in Spanish] Do you know Jose?

- [Cleo in English] He works on the river.
- No?

Apparently, nobody knows anything.

[tense music plays]




Just like old times
back in the old Pogue days, hey.


[kids screaming indistinctly]

[Latin music plays]

[man] Hey! You! [grunts]

[Big John grunts]

- A panga?
- [in Spanish] No, I don't know him.

[Big John in English] Get off of me!

Uh, I got a bunch of noes.

There's not a single Jose
who's a panga driver in there.

This is gonna be
a lot harder than I thought.

[Sarah] Yeah, I know.

[Big John] You rat bastard!

Bastards, you son of a bitch,

I'll chew your arms off,
you jack-off feeder fish. [grunts]

There's only one person on this planet
who would say something like that.

[Big John] Hey, get off of me!
Get off of me, you...

- Wait, are you saying...
- Yeah. That's my dad.

[Big John grunting]

That's one of Singh's men.

That means they didn't take him upriver.
We can still save him.

[Sarah] So how do we get him out?

[fireworks whizzing]

So right here, you have Tesoro.

Up here,

Orinoco, right?

And they say up here,

El Dorado.

- Wait.
- Who says?

All the world.

If all the world says it,
why hasn't it been found?

Some people say it doesn't exist.

Some people say it's hidden,

and only one very special person
can find it.


But most people say it's maldito.



Over the years,

people that go up,

they don't come back.

[ominous music plays]

[JJ scoffs]



He wouldn't be running
if he could translate the gnomon.

I'm starting to think
our friend might not be worth the trouble.

You understand me?

[Ryan] I could take him out
into the jungle.

Leave him in the tall grass.

- [exploding]
- [grunting]

[Singh] Who's sh**ting at us?

- [suspenseful music playing]
- [fireworks continue exploding]

What the hell is that?

Don't move.

[door closes]

I'll be damned.


It's just fireworks!

Ryan, go check it out now!
Rod, keep your eye on Routledge.


[Rod groaning]


[grunts, groans]

[Big John and Rod grunting]

[Rod] Not so fast.

[both panting]

I got you.

Sit down.

Sit down!

[tense music plays]

[both grunting]

- [John B grunts]
- [Sarah gasping]

[John B grunts]

- You okay?
- Are you okay?

- You're good?
- Yeah, I'm good. That was my dad.

- [glass shatters]
- [Rod yells]

[Sarah gasps]

[Rod groaning]

Sarah. Sarah...

[Big John grunts]

Oh my God. Dad!

Good to see you, kid.

- [John B] Oh my God.
- Hi.

- Hi, Sarah.
- [Singh] Ryan!

- We gotta go. Come on. Dad.
- [Sarah] Come on. Let's go.


Oh shit. Go, Sarah.

Come on. Follow me.

- [Big John] Go, go.
- [John B] Excuse me. Excuse me.

Oh God. [muttering indistinctly]

[Singh shouts indistinctly]


No? No Jose.
They don't know anybody named Jose.

Like I supposed to believe that shit, man.

They don't look friendly.

[horn honking]


Go! [panting]

[horn honking]

Welcome to Tres Rocas.

This place makes the Cut
look like the Taj Mahal.

[Kie] All right,
so how we gonna find them?

I'm working on it. Um, look, all right.
Tres Rocas is fairly small, all right?

Don't worry about it.
We'll find them, okay?

[Pope and Cleo panting]

You gotta be kidding me.
We haven't been here for two minutes!


- Cómo estás, amigos?
- What the...

- Hey! Run!
- We gotta go!

- What?
- [Cleo] We gotta run!

- You gotta be kidding me.
- Already? We just got here.

- What's happening?
- Singh's men are right behind us.

They're after us.
We gotta think of a plan.

- Okay, why don't we just hijack the bus?
- This bus?

- That only goes ten miles an hour?
- I'm just spitballing, Kie, okay?

- [Cleo] Guys!
- [Pope] They're coming now! Hide!

- [Cleo] Fruit stands! Duck!
- Sorry.

[Kie] Excuse me, sorry.

Get down.

- Duck!
- [JJ] Sorry. Sorry.

[tense music plays]

[Ryan] Over by the bus.

[in Spanish]
Did you see some teenagers run by here?

No, no one is here.

[in English] Don't say no.

[in Spanish] Calm down.

Maybe they went over there?
Straight that way. No one's here.

- [in English] All right. Go this way.
- [Fenton] Move aside. Move!

Get out the way!

[chickens clucking]

All right. Fenny! Come on.
Let's go. Let's check down the alley.

[engine turning over, revving]

[tires screeching]

Welcome to South America.

[fireworks whistling]

[John B] Can't believe
you just fell out of a window.

If I never see Singh again, it'll be
too soon. Let's collect our bearings.

- Get the lay of the land.
- [John B] Listen.

Think we'll have enough time
to make it to Solana for the solstice?

Yeah, but I wouldn't get too cocky.

I still can't make out those glyphs.

I might have something that might help us.

Listen, this is from Pope, okay?

- All right? This is a family heirloom.
- Pope?

- Yes, it is.
- Is he here too?

- Yes, Pope is here.
- Who the hell else is here?

It doesn't matter, okay?
Listen to me. It's like this thing, um...

- Like, what?
- Rosetta stone.

- Rosetta stone. Like a translation.
- Yeah, I know what the Rosetta stone is.

[John B] Okay, I'm just saying.

That's right. That's right.
No, that's right. He's a Tanny.

And Denmark's the link to the San Jose,
the whole... the whole deal.

[Big John chuckles]

Oh my God.

Okay, if this is legit...

...we just might cr*ck this thing.

- The gods are smiling on us.
- I'm glad the gods are smiling.

- We gotta go. Okay?
- I'll keep it safe.

We gotta move, kids.

We gotta get upriver.
The moon waits for no man.

[Sarah pants]

[birds squawking]

[indistinct chatter]

[John B] Okay, we've got to find
this river guide named Jose.

Divide and conquer?

[in Spanish] I'm looking for Jose. No?

- [Sarah] Jose?
- Mm-mm.

Do you know Jose?

- He's here.
- Here? [sighs] Perfect, thanks.

[in English] Hey. [whistles] Come here.

Okay, he's got our guy.

- [John B clears throat] Jose?
- Sí?

Uh, me llamo John B.

You know, Neville? Professor Sowell?

Sí. You are friends?

- Yes.
- The professor.

- Okay, I waiting for you.
- Oh my God.

Nice to meet you. You were gonna take us
upstream where you took them?

- [Jose in Spanish] Of course.
- Perfect.

[in English] And he already paid,

so we can go.

- He, as in...
- [Jose] Your friend.

He's waiting.

Come on, follow me. Over here.

[ominous music plays]

[Ward] Hi, honey.

- I told you! Do you even ever listen?
- What the hell is he doing here?

- I don't know, Dad.
- You don't know.

- No, I don't. No.
- You don't have a clue? The smallest idea?

- [Ward] I'm here to do what I can.
- You're not protecting me. I'm fine.

- Wait, John. Listen to me. Listen to me!
- You tried to k*ll me, you son of a bitch.

- You have every right to be upset.
- I'm not upset. Who said I was upset?

- [Ward yells]
- [Big John] You're injured?

[Ryan in Spanish]
Have you seen the three Americans?

[man] Ladies and gentlemen, listen up!

- [in English] What do we do?
- Singh. Hey. Singh is here.

- He's here. Yeah. We gotta go.
- Oh! Oh! Time to go. Time to go.

- You threw me overboard!
- Hey! Shut up.

Singh is in the market right now.
Get in the damn boat. Go. Go.

- Get on the boat.
- Not those.

[man shouting in Spanish]

[in Spanish]
I'm looking for the three Americans.

I don't know them.

Where are you?

- [Sarah in English] Pope and Cleo?
- [John B] They'll figure it out.

- [Sarah] What are you...
- I'm going.

- [Sarah] No!
- Singh's dangerous. You're over your head.

- [Sarah] Damn it!
- [Big John] Get in the boat.

[Jose] Ándale! Ándale!

[Big John] Get down.

I guess it's just us.

[bird cawing]

["Mid-Town" by Calexico plays]

["Mid-Town" by Calexico ends]

[Jose speaking Spanish]

[Big John]
Well, welcome to El Tesoro, Bird.

We'll hole up here for the night.
Move out at first light.

Somewhere up there is the dig site

and El Dorado.

With that letter and this gnomon,

I think we got a sh*t, you and me.

And Sarah, Dad.

She ain't done the deep dive

like we have.

And I don't trust anyone
with the last name of Cameron.

You think Ward just showed up on his own?

Just you and me.

[Ward sighs] Of course I know
what it looks like, sweetheart, okay?

But I'm not here for treasure.
Not theirs, not anyone's.

What do I need gold for? [chuckles]

You're my gold.

And was I your gold

when you were strangling me?

I'll regret that for the rest of my life.

Every minute of every day.

Some good did come of it, though.

I've changed, Sarah.

- [John B] I saw you talking to your dad.
- He says he's just here to help.

But... I don't trust him.

Yeah, um...

Yeah, my dad
doesn't necessarily trust you either, so...

Yeah, I gathered that much.

I don't blame him.

Not after what my dad did to him.

And I know we've been through a lot,
but we're still good, right?


We're good.

[tense music plays]

Got anything to protect yourself?

- Uh, kinda working on that part.
- Here.

- What's this?
- Machetes.

You'll need 'em.

I'm adding the cost of this rig
to what you already owe me.

I don't expect to see it again anyway.

Look, I asked around at the landing today.


Your buds did leave this morning,

but I was able to get directions
to El Tesoro.

Pretty loose.

Only Jose knows the real way,
but get you in the right zip code, maybe.

- [Kie] It's a start.
- Thanks.

No. [chuckles]

Don't thank me.

Start praying.

- And JJ.
- Yeah?

You owe me, dude. Ten times.

Good luck.

Come on. [grunts]

["Esperanza" by Hermanos Gutiérrez plays]

[John B]
So the story goes that the Guajiro king,

who found El Dorado, as he was dying,

said he would not just give
the gold to his sons, no.

The gold would only go
to one who was worthy.

Those who sought the gold
would be tested by the Jaguar God.

But for years,
the Jaguar God has found no one worthy.

The gold still remains.

And if you are good, if you are wise,

and if you are lucky,

maybe you will be the one.

[insects chirping]


[tense music plays]

[birds chirping]

That site's a whole day's walk.
We gotta get up there before moonrise.

If we miss the solstice,
then all this was for nothing.

So, listen, Sarah,

I'm telling you right now,
if you fall behind, I ain't waiting.

- Dad. Stop!
- [Big John] I ain't!

What? I ain't. It's a matter of fact.

Sorry about the cranky old man.

I'm gonna go tell that son of a bitch
he ain't coming.

- Dad, hey.
- [Ward] Hey, listen, fellas.

I'm real sorry, but, uh...

I'm not gonna be able to make it
up that mountain, not on this leg.

I'd be slowing you down, that's all.
So I'm just gonna

hang here.

Tell you what, I got a flare g*n.

If I see Singh come through here,
I'll send up a flare.

Let you all know he's coming.

Least I can do.

- Thank you.
- [Ward] You're welcome.

Good luck.

Don't even think
about trying anything, Ward.

It won't end well.

Just trying to take care
of my daughter, John.

What are you doing with your son?

Good luck.

["La Mirada" by Los Espíritus plays]

[John B] Let's go. Come on.

Come on, kids. Pick it up!
I don't got time to waste.

[Big John] Come on, kids.

[Cleo] JJ, you were right.
That's Singh and his men.

- But they're not looking for us.
- [JJ] Yeah, they're moving real quick.

They're looking for John B and Sarah.
They'll know where they're headed.

We gotta go. They're gonna need us.

[boat engine revving]

[Cleo] Stay back. Don't get too close.

- [John B pants, groans]
- [Big John] Come on.

- [Sarah] Hey. Are you good?
- [John B grunts] Yeah.

[Big John] Let's get a move on!

[Sarah grunts]

Hey, Pop.
How about we take a breather, you know?

How about not? Come on, boy.

You're both slowing me down.
We're losing light.

- [John B] I can't take this anymore.
- It's the only sh*t we got. Come on.

Hey! Hey.

For seconds,
can you stop being an assh*le?

Thirty seconds? I've been
on this trail my whole life, boy,

and we are on the cusp.

And I got Ward Cameron,
who tried to k*ll me, nipping at my heels.

- His daughter spying on me.
- You think she's spying on you?

[Big John]
Are you really so sure about her?

- A Cameron.
- [exhales]

That whole family is trust-challenged,
and you know that.

[John B] Mm-hmm.

You can stay back here
and babysit your girlfriend.

It's your choice.

I'll see you at the top.

- [Sarah grunting]
- Oh.

- [Sarah] Sorry.
- Watch your foot.


Camerons aren't really a hiking family

if I'm being honest.

Sorry about him.

He gets a little obsessive
over the treasure.

And you don't? [chuckles]

[chuckles] Stop.

[Sarah laughs] Let's go. Come on.



[majestic music plays]



- Come on. Take a look at this.
- [Sarah] Sorry. I had to catch my breath.

Catch it when you get here.
Take a look at that.

[chuckles] Look at that.

[Sarah] Wow.

We did it, boy.

There she bl*ws.


Come on.

Let's keep trucking.

At least it's downhill, huh?

[wolf howling]

Do you see that?

[John B] Whoa.

[Big John] Oh my God.

It's just as the legend predicted it.

See these four columns here?

Mark the cardinal directions.

And there it is.

The temalacatl.


[John B] I'll be damned.

[Big John] Oh my.

I can't believe it.

Oh, it's as real as the day, boy.

A thousand years

of astronomy,


is all contained in this.

This proves that the Kalinago
were every bit the equal to the Mayans.


this is gonna rewrite everything.

Oh, you see that? This right here.
That's where she goes.

Yeah, yeah. Get the gnomon out.

- Come on.
- That's where the gnomon goes.

Look at this.

This is it. This is the moment, boy.

- Nice and easy. Nice and easy.
- That's right. Boy, look at this.

Please, please, please.

[Big John laughs]

[inhales] Oh my God.

Yo, listen up.

When the moon hits its zenith,
that's when the action starts.

Okay, John B,

I want you on translation.
Sarah, gather up some mud.

And mark the glyph
so we know what to translate.

- You got it? Be quick, okay?
- [Sarah] Got it.

Hey, hey. Aye, aye, captain. Relax.

We only got one sh*t at this.
I don't want any back talk.

[John B] Okay, okay.

- Wanna help me with this?
- [Sarah] Of course.

[Big John] It's in here.

- Okay.
- Okay.

Just give it time.

[Big John sniffles]

[Big John pants]

Oh. Whoa. Guys. Guys. Guys.

[Big John] This is it.

- It's actually working.
- Okay.

Oh my God. Oh my God.

Oh my God.

[John B] Oh, Dad. Guys, guys!

[gasps] Mark it, mark it, hurry, hurry!

Mark it! Mark it! What's that?

- That's the one that looks like a boot.
- [Big John] Akish.

- Brave traveler. Brave traveler.
- Ah, great. Brave traveler.

- Brave traveler.
- Oh, oh. This one?

[John B] Yeah, that one has
the three nubs on it. That is wisdom.

- That one's wisdom.
- [Sarah] Wisdom.

Pay close attention. Can't muck this up.
If they shine, mark it. Keep translating.

- Okay, we got it.
- There's two more there.

- [Sarah] This is...
- [Big John] What's that? Hurry.

- Wealth and... and...
- [Big John] No mistakes.

- [John B] Earth. Earth.
- Earth?

- Yes.
- Okay.

Earth, earth. Wealth and earth.
Okay, I think I got this first one sorted.

"Brave traveler, if you have wisdom,
I'll reveal the wealth of the earth."

- [John B] Wealth of the earth.
- Wealth of the earth!

That's... that's El Dorado!

- [John B] Oh, wait.
- Look! Something's happening on the stone!

Look, it's coming off the gnomon!
Oh my God, look.

- [Sarah] Tongue?
- [John B] A horn thing.

What is this? Come on, hurry up!

- Patience. It's patience.
- [Big John] Patience.




- Whoa, whoa.
- [Big John] There, there.

- Look. That's wisdom again.
- Right here.

- Yeah, that's wisdom.
- [Sarah] And that's a tongue.

- [John B] Darkness, that one's darkness.
- [Sarah] Okay.

[Big John] Darkness. Wisdom and darkness.

[Sarah] And over there.
That's, um, seeker.

[Big John] Seeker.

Hey. Hey.

Sarah, what is hand? What is hand?

[Sarah] I don't know.
I don't see it on here.

Oh, I know this. Hand. Hand.

[splutters] Hand means home.

[Sarah] Home?

[Big John] It's showing us
the direction to El Dorado.

[laughing] It's showing us
the direction to El Dorado!

[thunder rumbling]

[monkeys howling]

[Big John mumbling]

Wisdom. Wisdom.

- What do we got, old man?
- [Big John] "I..."

"I have no tongue,
but I'm always speaking."

[thunder rumbles]

- What does it mean?
- "I..."

[tense music plays]

- [John B] Dad, just spit it out.
- [splutters] I'm still working it out.

[John B] Dad, what are you doing?

I've got all the notes. I...
We know which way we're going. It's...

It's because I'm here.
This is about me, isn't it?

Big John, I am not my father.
And I'm not my brother. You can trust me.

What does it say? Hey, look at me.

We all just went through hell
and back to get here.

Tell me what it says.

This is what we're doing, huh?
Just gonna use us.

Just gonna pull us in and push us out,
like you did with Mom, with me.

- Look, now you're doing it to Sarah.
- [Sarah] John B, stop.

[John B] No! Tell us what it is!

What does it say, Dad?

- What does it say?
- [Singh] Yes, John!

What does it say?

Huh? Tell us all, John.

What is the secret of the gnomon?


- I wouldn't do that if I were you, John.
- [thunder rumbling]

I have you surrounded.

You'd do best to toss over your g*n now!

Careful now, Mr. Routledge. Careful.

Very good.

Very good!

Ward was gonna send up a flare to warn us?

Yeah, sure.

- Hey, what did you do with my father?
- [Ward] I'm right here, Sarah! I'm okay!

I'm right here.

- [sniffles] Dad. Dad, what did you do?
- [Ward] No, no, no, Sarah!

- I made a deal, Sarah. I had to.
- A deal?

[Ward] Yes. I did a favor for Mr. Singh.

- In return, he's gonna give me all I want.
- You think this is a favor?

I want you safe!
Isn't that right, Mr. Singh?

[Singh] Mr. Cameron is correct.

When we're finished,
you can go with your father.

- Safe and sound.
- [scoffs]

And you too can live, you know, John,

if you just give me what I want!

The way to El Dorado!

Sorry, Carlos.

I can't do it.

- [exhales]
- [Big John] And you ain't gonna k*ll me.

'Cause I got the treasure.

It's right up here.

[Singh] John, John, John, John, John.

You know
what the Guajiro king did to the slaves

that mined El Dorado, John?

He had them ex*cuted,

so they could never reveal
the secret location,

and he did it here, you know,

on the Stone of Solana.

And I think it's important,

very important

that we honor tradition.

- So, tell me, John.
- No.


What does it say?

[Sarah panting]

Tell him. Please.

[Singh laughs]

[Singh] Make your choice, John!

[tense music plays]

[breathing shakily]

Dad, just tell him.

[Ward] John. Jesus, John.

Tell him!


[tense music intensifies]

- No! [screams]
- Sarah!

- [grunts]
- [panting]

[Sarah] No. No. [panting]

- [g*n fires]
- [Sarah screams]


- [grunts]
- [Big John] John B, grab the g*n!

- Go!
- You promised!

[Ward screams]

Come on, Sarah.


[Big John screams]

[Singh] John!

[Big John grunting]

[g*n fires]

[g*n f*ring]

- [screams]
- [grunts]

Sarah! Come this way! Come with me!

No! I'm not coming with you!

I'm your father. I saved your life, Sarah.
Now come with me before you get k*lled!

[Singh grunts]

Damn it, Sarah,
we don't have time for this! Now come on!

John B, give me your g*n.

- What?
- Give me your g*n.

- You're coming with me.
- [Sarah] Back up.

- [John B] What are you doing? Sarah.
- I said back up.

[g*n f*ring in background]

Put it down, Sarah.
You're not gonna sh**t your own...

- [Ward gasps]
- [panting]

[Big John] Here.

- [g*n f*ring]
- [Sarah panting]

You're one of us now, kid.

- Go. I'll cover you.
- Yeah.

[g*n f*ring]

[Big John groans]

[Big John groans]

- [John B] Dad, come on.
- [Big John] Run! Run!

[Big John grunts]

Stop f*ring! Stop!


[Singh] Forget him.

Forget Ward.

Find Big John Routledge.

k*ll the young boy
and k*ll Cameron's daughter!


[thunder rumbling]


[birds squawking]

[Kie] Okay, guys,
I think this is El Tesoro.

The trailhead to the mountain
is supposed to start here.

Oh shit. That's one of Singh's guys.
What are we gonna do?

We gotta get past them somehow.

[fishing line whirring]

"In five seconds, you will hear a g*n.
That's your warning."

- [g*n fires]
- [yelps] Miguel! They're sh**ting at us!

- Where are they?
- [in Spanish] I don't see them.

[JJ in English] Is he buying it?

[Pope grunts]

[yelps] Shit, we're surrounded!


- Oh shit. Oh shit.
- Get down!

[both grunting]

[JJ] Pope, return f*re! Return f*re!

[Pope grunts]


- [man] There's too many of them!
- [Fenton] Let's get out of here! Go!

[boat engine revving]

Come on, get them.

[Fenton] Go faster. Faster!

[Pope] Bye-bye.

- Think we're getting better at this.
- Oh yeah.

Hey, hey. Ain't no time for celebrating.
We didn't do nothing yet.

That's fair.

- I thought we did something.
- We did.

Well-done, soldier.

[John B] Come on. We gotta keep moving.

Singh and his men can't be far behind us.

Keep on that heading, northwest.
That's the way the hand pointed.

That's home. [grunts]


[Big John grunts]

[Big John groans]

- [John B] Pick it up, old man. Let's go.
- [Big John] I need a minute.

You need a minute?
What are you talking about?

- Come on, let's pick it up. Let's go.
- Go on, I'll catch up.

- I just need a minute to catch my breath.
- Sarah, one sec. We got a straggler.

[Sarah] All right.

Dude, what's going on, man? We gotta go.

It's just my legs ain't
what they used to be.

I'll be fine in just a second. [pants]

Dad, what the hell was that at Solana?

You were really gonna let
them sh**t me back there?


Come on, give me some credit, kid.

Sarah just b*at me to the punch.

Always about the treasure, right?

Come on. We gotta go. Wait, wait, wait.

Jesus, Dad, are you okay?

What? Yeah.
I just got grazed. I'll be fine.

Just b*at-up a little bit. That's okay.

[splutters] Are you sure?

[groans] I'll be fine.

Come on. We gotta go.

We gotta go. Go. Go. Come on.

Double time, right?

[breathing heavily]

[eerie whooshing]

[Big John grunts]

- Come on, Dad.
- [Big John] Yeah, I'm coming. I'm coming.

Shh. Listen. Listen, listen.

- What is that?
- Do you hear that?

[eerie whooshing]

What the...


Do you remember when you said
no tongue but always speaking?

- How do you know that?
- I heard you talking to yourself.

Yeah, you do do that.

"I am nothing but hold everything.
No tongue

but always


- [John B] Dad, she's onto something.
- Oh my God.

Let's go.

[eerie whooshing continues]

What the hell is that? [chuckling]

It's this way.

[eerie whooshing continues]

"No tongue but always speaking.
I am nothing but hold everything."

[insects chirping]

- [Sarah] It's a cave.
- That's it.

Maybe El Dorado is in a cave.

- All right.
- Okay.

- Let's do it. Come on.
- All right.

[Big John] That's it.

[eerie whooshing continues]


[Sarah] What happened to you?

- [grunts]
- [panting]

[Sarah] Everything you do is for yourself.

You are manipulative. You are a liar.

- I'm your father.
- And you are a m*rder. [grunts]

[Ward] Sarah!

I swore to protect you,
and I can't when you're with him.

- You're not one of us anymore.
- [Sarah pants]

You're one of them.


Back up!

[Ward] Sarah, put the g*n down.

- I saved your life, Sarah!
- [g*n fires]



[Big John panting]

[John B] This doesn't look
like a city of gold.

It's a big cave.
Let's split up, look around.

There's gotta be a passage or something.

[groans] Keep your eyes peeled.

I don't know, Dad.
It kinda looks like a d*ad end.

It's just a hole in the ground.
It doesn't go anywhere.

[Big John] Keep looking. [panting]



[John B] I don't see any other way to go.

- This is it.
- [exhales]

John B,

I think this goes deeper.


[Sarah] You see the fish?

Well, they have to come from somewhere.

Only one way to find out.

They look like
they're coming from over here.


what is that?

Wait, what do you see?

Dad! Hey, Dad. Come check this out.
Sarah found something.

[grunts] I'm coming.


There's an opening.

[Big John] All right, that's something.
Wait, what's that above it?

It's... it's a hand.

- [Sarah] Oh my God.
- [Big John chuckles]

[both panting]

I think they went this way.
There's a path here.

Let's just hold up her for a sec,
wait for JJ and Kie.

It's beautiful out here.

[birds chirping]

I know it's probably not
a good time to say this, but...

I don't know what's gonna happen
once we get up there,

and I don't know
if I'm gonna get another chance.

Interesting preamble, but okay.

I've been on my own since I was , okay?

Never even hoped
for anything except for surviving.

I never even thought
it could be another way.

But these last few months with you,

you've shown me something different.

And I just want to say that...

Say what?

I, um...

You know the No Love Club?


I quit.

[Cleo exhales]

[dramatic music plays]

[JJ] Pope!

Hey. We couldn't find anything.

You guys find something?

- Yeah. The path leads this way.
- [Cleo] Oh.

- [Kie] All right.
- [JJ] Okay. We're coming.

If someone went through this much trouble,
it's got to be the way.

- Looks like we're good. Ready?
- Yeah.

- [John B] Let's do it.
- I'll never fit through that wormhole.

- You two go.
- What are you talking about?

Dad, we finally found

what we think is El Dorado,
and you're just gonna sit this one out?

Gotta take
the training wheels off sometime, kid.

It's time.

I'll hold down the fort out here,
but before you go, listen.

There was one last part of the message
that I didn't tell you.

Always keeping secrets, huh, Pop? Shocker.

I'm sorry. I'm telling you now.

The last part,

"The true and patient seeker
needs not light to see."

You got it?

"The true and patient seeker
needs not light to see."

That's it.



I've got these three flares.

They're waterproof. I doubt
those flashlights will survive the swim.

They're minutes each.

And you don't wanna get stuck
down there without them.

You'll never find your way out. All right?

Go. Go. [chuckles]

I'm passing the baton
over to you kids. [chuckles]

You got this, boy.

I'll be okay.
I'll see you when you get back.

Thank you, Sarah.

You sure you're good?

I promise.


- Now go, find that city of gold, boy.
- We're going.

- Ready?
- [exhales] Yeah.

- Three.
- Two.

[both] One.

[both inhale]

[tense music crescendos]

[monkeys howling]

[Singh panting, chucking]

I knew I got you, John.


Where are you?

[tense music crescendos]


John B?

John... John B?


- Hey. You okay? You okay?
- Yeah.

- You okay?
- [panting]

Okay. We made it.

[Sarah] What is this place? [gasps]

Sarah, look. There's something over there.

[Sarah] Okay. Let's go.

[John B] Okay.

[Sarah panting]

You got it?

- You good?
- Yeah.

[both panting]

[John B] You got it.

[Sarah] How deep does this go?


[John B] Looks like there's
an opening down there.

- [Sarah] Okay.
- [John B] And there goes my flashlight.

Well, at least we have mine.

- Never mind.
- [John B] Okay.

- [Sarah] Okay, flares, flares.
- [John B] Yep. Yeah.

- [Sarah] Right now. Okay.
- [John B] I'm on it.

- [sighs]
- [John B] Okay.

- Twenty minutes per flare.
- Three flares.

Sixty minutes.

Thirty minutes in.

Thirty minutes out. Ready?

- Let's go.
- Okay.

- Follow me.
- [both sigh]


[eerie whooshing]

Why would you hide in a cave, John?


[suspenseful music plays]

[John B] No, no, no, no.

Does it just end here?

- Maybe we missed something.
- [John B] This was the only way to go.

There's nothing.

That's it.

That's it.

- Okay. Um, maybe...
- [John B] Nothing.

- I don't know. Just keep looking.
- Sarah, it's a d*ad end. It's a d*ad end.

There's nowhere else to go.

Maybe this isn't El Dorado.

Maybe my dad was wrong. I brought you here
and put you in danger for no reason.


Even if this ends up being nothing,

if all it leads us to is
this godforsaken hole in the ground,

I'm glad I did it even if you aren't.

Sarah, I got you sh*t.

I mean, you're basically homeless
because of me.

You lost everything, Sarah,

because of me.

[dramatic music plays]

Not everything.

I'm sorry.

Mmm, wait, what was
that thing your dad said?

Mmm, my dad... my dad says a lot of things.

No, no, that clue, that clue.

- Uh, a clue?
- It was, "The true..."

- "The true and patient seeker..."
- Patient.

"...needs not light to see."

"The true and patient seeker
needs not light to see."

- Put that out.
- We only have so many...

- [Sarah] It needs to be dark.
- Sarah.

[Sarah] It's okay. We can relight it.

[Sarah breathing shakily]

Sarah, what's happening?

[Sarah chuckles]



It's phosphorescence.

[rocks cracking]

Hey. Hey.

[suspenseful music plays]

[exhales, chuckles]

- [John B] Oh my God, you were right.
- Flare.

- Flare, right now.
- Oh, yeah. Yeah.

- Should we do it?
- Let's do it.

- [panting]
- Careful, watch your head.

[Sarah] There's something ahead.

[both panting]

[gasps] Oh God. Okay. Um...

- Okay.
- Don't look down.


- So, what do we do now?
- Um...

- Uh, we can jump.
- Huh?

- No.
- Yep.

- No. Jump?
- Look, it's not that bad.

The glyph led us here. There's gotta be
something on the other side.

Just trust me on this one.

- No.
- Yeah.

- No.
- We're good.

- We're good.
- No, John B.

Okay. All right. [panting]

One, two,


- No!
- [John B grunting]

- [Sarah] The flare! Get the flare!
- No, no, no!

- No!
- No, no!

[John B] No.

- [Sarah] John B?
- [John B] Sarah!

[breathing heavily]




I know you're bleeding, Mr. Routledge!

I know I h*t you,
and I'm gonna find you, you know.

'Cause you couldn't have gotten far, John.

[Big John grunts]

[panting, grunting]


See? It wasn't that bad. We're good.

- I can't make that.
- [John B] Okay, okay. Listen.

- I'll go take a peek. I'll be right back.
- [Sarah] No. No!

- [John B] You don't have to come, okay?
- No, I'm not...

- I'm coming with you.
- Are you sure?

- [Sarah] Yes, I'm sure.
- Okay.

Um... I can do it. I...

- [splutters] I'm gonna do it.
- Okay.

- I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna...
- Okay. Okay.

- Look at me. Hey! Sarah, I got you.
- [exhales]

- You're gonna catch me?
- Yes. Yes, ma'am. I got you.

- [panting] Okay.
- [tense music plays]

- [exhales]
- [John B] Ready?

[Sarah exhales]

- [John B] Three.
- Okay.

Two. One.

[tense music crescendos]

- Sarah! I got you.
- [yelps]

- I got you. You're okay.
- [both panting]

I told you you'd make it. Look at that.

[Sarah chuckles]

- Okay.
- Ready?

- Yeah. Okay.
- Let's go.

Mr. Routledge!




Where are you, John?

I know you're here somewhere.


[Sarah] See anything?

Yeah. It looks like
another chamber up ahead.

- Let's check it out.
- Okay.

[panting] Come on. I got you. I got you.

There you go.

[both panting]

[suspenseful music plays]

[John B] What's down there?
I can't see anything.

[Sarah] Only one way to find out, right?

[John B grunts]

[triumphant music plays]

[chuckles softly]


We... we did it.

We found it.

- Look at that, Dad.
- I can't... [laughs]

[John B] It's El Dorado.

[laughing] I can't bel...

- Sarah.
- [laughs]

Hey, come here.

After everything we've been through.

[inhales, sniffles]

- It actually exists. [laughs]
- [chuckles]

I told you.

You were right.

You were right.

You see all that on the ground?
That's loose gold, Sarah.

- Oh my God, it's everywhere.
- Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

- Mm-hmm.
- Yeah.

- Let's go. Mm-hmm.
- Yeah.

[John B panting]

- Whoa. Okay.
- Come on. There you go.

That a girl.

Oh my God. It's everywhere.

- [laughs]
- [John B] Sarah, you got it?

[Sarah grunts] Ooh, okay.

[John B gasps]

[both chuckle]

- Hey, to going full Kook?
- Full Kook. [laughs]

To going full Kook!

[laughs] Oh my...

[Sarah laughs]

Let's fill this bad boy up.

Oh baby. Look at that!


- Nice.
- Yeah.

Oh my Lord.

- [Sarah] There's another one.
- [John B] Here you go.

[Sarah laughs]

[Sarah gasps, pants]

[John B] It's okay. Hang on. [grunts]

All right. Last flare.

We've got minutes to get back.
Twenty minutes. All right?

- We'll come back for the rest. Ready?
- Let's go.


You got it?

We gotta go. Let's go.

[suspenseful music plays]

There's only one way out of here, John.

You can't hide from me
for much longer, you know.

[breathing heavily]

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

- Easy now, young Routledge, easy!
- [gasps]

[Singh] Go for a little swim now, did you?

Step out of the water
and put your hands up, both of you.


Put your hands up.

Put your... put your hands up!

Easy now.

Very good.

Drop the flare.

- Drop it!
- I'm gonna put it down.

Very good.

Looks like you're carrying a load there,
young Routledge.

You want to tell me about it?

What is in the bag?

Show me what's in the bag.

[g*n cocks]

Okay, okay, okay.

Okay. Keep it right here.


[John B] Look. Hey.

You want it? There you go.

[dramatic music plays]

[Singh laughs]

[Singh] So, you found El Dorado at last.

You did it, boy.

I know I was right
to keep you alive, you know.

But, unfortunately for your son,

the celebration will be short-lived.

You have three seconds to come out
before I start f*ring.

[g*n cocks]



- Two!
- [Big John] I'm here, Singh. Over here.

You k*ll us,
I'll make sure this thing bl*ws.

That roof won't hold,
and you'll never see El Dorado.

Drop your g*n.

Drop the g*n!

No, if my son dies, we all die.

[Singh] You see, the problem is
I don't believe you, John.

I don't believe that you would blow up
your opportunity to see El Dorado,

even to save your own son,

and even your own son knows that,
you know.

You've proven it time and time again,
John, you know that.

This, John, is the great quest.

This is what we've been looking for
our whole lives.

So put that thing out and join me.

[tense music plays]


No, I can't. [panting]

This is for you, kid.

Run! [grunts]

- Go!
- [Singh] No!

- Dad, let's go!
- Keep going!

Take the gold. Get out of here. Go.


[John B] Come on, come on, we gotta go.

[tense music crescendos]

[expl*si*n rumbles]

[both grunt, scream]

- [grunts]
- [birds squawking]

[expl*si*n continues rumbling]

- [John B coughs]
- [Big John grunts]

- You okay?
- Yeah, never better.

- You okay?
- We gotta go.

- Dad, come on. Come on.
- Anybody could have heard that blast.

- [Big John grunts]
- Let's go. Let's go.

- [Big John] We gotta get out of here.
- [Sarah grunts, coughing]

[John B] Let's go.

[grunting, coughing]

[Big John groaning]

I think I got
pretty banged up back there, kids.

- [John B] Let's just keep moving.
- I think I gotta sit.

- I need to sit for a sec.
- [Sarah] Okay.

- [groans] I just need a minute.
- Okay.

- [Big John] Get my legs up under me.
- [groans]

[John B] Just take it easy, Dad.

[pants, groans]

[gold clanks in bag]

- Is that what I think it is?
- Oh yeah.


Big John, it's beautiful.

[Sarah chuckles]

[John B] We found it. Just like you said.

Look at that.

Look at that.

It was like nothing
you could ever imagine.

- That you could ever...
- Ah. That's amazing.

You were right.

[laughs] It's all, like, gold... everywhere.

Sarah figured out the riddle.
[splutters] The walking in the dark.

That a girl. Thank you, Sarah.


[ominous music plays]

[Ward] So sweet,

you know?

- One big happy family, huh?
- [Sarah] Dad, what are you doing?

I'm too tired to hold my hands up, Ward.

So if you're not good with that,
you can just sh**t me now.

Well, watch what you wish for,
my old friend.

- We might come to that.
- Put the g*n down.

Shut up, Sarah.

You have it all, don't you, John?
Now you get everything, huh?

[tense music plays]

Thank you, sweetheart.

You get to go home, back to Kildare.

Live happily ever after.

With your son

that loves you.

And my daughter...

who hates me.


I'm sorry, John.
I don't think I can allow that.

[Pope] All right,
so, what are we gonna do?

Is this ride or die?

- P L.
- [blade clanging]

P L.

P L.

Fricking P L. [exhales]

You're supposed to be d*ad.

I think I liked you better that way.

[g*n cocks]

[Pogues screaming]

- Stay back! Stop right now!
- Put it down!

- [Ward] Stay!
- Put it down!

- Stay back, stay back!
- [JJ] Put it down, Ward!

[Ward] Stand back, stand back!

Come on! You're outnumbered, Ward.

What are you gonna do, sh**t us all?

If you gotta sh**t somebody,
Ward, sh**t me.

[g*n cocks]

Or me.

[Ward panting]



- Don't!
- You're not gonna k*ll all of us.

I know you won't.

I know you.

[Ward panting]

You forget that I know you.


[sobs, exhales]

You can't.


I couldn't. I couldn't do it.

[Ward sobbing]

- [Ryan] Yeah?
- [g*n cocks]

Well, I can.

- [g*n cocks]
- [pants]

Toss it.

[Big John] Take it easy, bud.

Your boss is d*ad.
You got no reason to do this.

[Ryan] I can think
of a few reasons. Toss it!


[tense music plays]

[Ryan] Thought you'd end up
with the gold, eh?

All right, nobody move.

My mate back there is d*ad.

Because of you.

[quietly] Jayj.

You go first.

[g*n cocks]



[thump echoes]


- [panting]
- [gasps]




[somber music plays]

[Sarah sobbing]


Hey. Big John? Big John?

Hey. John B!


[John B panting]

- Okay, Dad, we gotta get you out of here.
- It's all right.

Hey, stay up. Stay awake.

Please stay awake. Come on.

Come on, come on. Come on.

[birds chirping]

[Big John grunting]

[Pope] Hang on, Big John.
We got you. We got you.

[John B] We just gotta get you downriver.
You're gonna be okay.

[somber music continues]


[breathing heavily]

[Big John groans]

Hey, hey, hey, Pop. Hey.
Hang in there, okay?


But we did it together, my boy.

- Yeah. [sniffles]
- Just...

[John B sniffles]

Just like we drew it up.

[John B sniffles] Yeah.

Yeah, we did. [sniffles]

[Big John] Bird, Bird, Bird.

- [John B] Dad, yeah.
- Hey, hey, Bird.

[John B sniffles]



- Sarah.
- Hi.

I'm here, Big John.

[Big John]
Bird, you got to hang on to this one.

[Big John groaning]

I know

that I wasn't any great shakes

as a father.

Stop, Dad.

[Big John] But you...

[emotional music plays]

You were the best son
any man could hope for.


[Big John] I want you to know that...

[sniffles] You can tell me
when we get home, okay?

Almost there. [sniffles]

[Big John] Okay.

[sniffles] Hold up. Look, Dad. Look.

[sobbing] We did it.

[Big John breathing heavily]

[John B] You did it.

[John B sobbing]

[Big John] I'll see you.

I'll see you at home, kid.

[John B sniffles]



[John B sobbing]

[bell ringing]

["m*rder in the City"
by The Avett Brothers plays]

[John B]
Life is harder and weirder than you think.

Sometimes the biggest victories
come with the greatest losses,

and sometimes the biggest villains
are also unexpected heroes.

When my father came back,
I thought it was a dream come true.

But the thing that I found is

life doesn't give you
oceans without waves.

My dad wanted to make
a great quest of his life.

He wanted adventure,

and he wanted to find treasure.

You know what I realize?

I am my father's son.

[dignitary] An expedition
of one man, John Routledge,

and a group of teenagers,
who are with us today.

Locals, who grew up here

and who succeeded

where centuries of conquistadors,
explorers, and admirals failed.

Today, we come together
to celebrate these teens,

friends from both sides of the island

who came together
to solve this -year-old mystery.

Let's hear it for them!

[crowd cheering]

[triumphant music plays]


[upbeat music plays]

[JJ] Okay, I need a reset.

I need a reset right now. This is a lot.

- It's time to celebrate.
- [Pope] I'll take one h*t.

- One.
- [Cleo] Bad man now.

[Sarah] Big John would've thought
this was all bullshit. [laughs]

Yeah, he kind of hated
this side of the island.

But I know you're thinking about him.

I don't know. After everything
that's happened, it's just...

it's just different.

It just feels so normal. You know?

Kie's saving turtles,

Pope's going away to school,
and JJ bought the charter boat.

And we've got a k*ller surf shop.

Yeah, that's all good, right?


Excuse me. I... I don't mean to interrupt.

Uh, can we help you?

Yes. I wanted to tell you all
it's remarkable what you all did.

Royal Merchant,

El Dorado,

Denmark Tanny.

Impressive résumé, impressive.

I was wondering
if you would all be so kind

as to look at an item of mine.

Oh yeah? What type of item is that?
