There could be a possible duplication in season 4 & 5 of "The Curse of Oak Island".

Season 4 Episode 16 is listed on the History Channel site as S4E16 A Look Ahead http://www.history.com/shows/the-curse- ... episode-16
There is a special listed in the TVDB season 5 - Drilling Down on A Look Ahead (S00E08) which is a duplicate.

There is one special listed on the Offical History Channel Episode Page for season 4 http://www.history.com/shows/the-curse- ... d/season-4 "The Boy's Are Back" which aired November 15, 2016

TheTVDB has these specials listed:
Season 4 - Drilling Down On Season 4 (S00E07) - Should be "The Boy's Are Back" according to the History Channel Official Episode Page
Season 5 - Drilling Down on A Look Ahead (S00E08) - Duplicate of S04E16
Season 5 - Drilling Down on The Journey Continues (S00E10) - Appears to be a duplicate of "The Journey So Far" (S00E09) - This episode was probably aired twice on back-to-back weeks. The History Channel only lists one special so far for season 5 http://www.history.com/shows/the-curse- ... /episode-0 which is "The Journey So Far"

Part of the confusion which some of the episodes is that the History Channel will title them one way, but the host will announce it another way.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Going through this, actually several of the specials are apart of https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-curs ... easons/all
Personally, I don't like duplicates so I'd move all of the specials from The Curse of Oak Island that should be into The Curse of Oak Island Drilling Down.
To Be Honest (TBH), I'm not 100% on what the rules say about duplicate episodes across series.
Specials rules: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=7603
Normal rules: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4076

I'll see if I can't get a more definitive stance on this (or I'm just missing something) and update you.

As for the specific episodes you've mentioned they are not apart of the normal series and should be specials and/or put into the other series if they aren't already.
