In "Door of Gold," a pair of newlywed archaeologists brave the dangers of a subterranean Incan temple in order to retrieve a fortune in gold.
As the episode opens, Phillip explains that he and his bride, Janice, are honeymooning in the Peruvian jungle while excavating Incan burial mounds. Accompanying them are Dr. Clayton and their native guide, Juan. They are all searching for the famed Porto de Oro because Phillip believes that it is a real doorway to a fortune in gold and not just a legend.
One morning, they find the Porto de Oro inside of a burial mound built against a mountainside. After discovering the trick to the entrance, Phillip and Janice enter alone. He cautions her about the danger, but Janice tells him that she knows all about the "flip-flop" stones and other traps inside the subterranean passageways.
Will Phillip and Janice find the gold the Incas hid from the Spanish four centuries ago? Or, will they become trapped underground forever?
