Issue is that the loser Hoffman crew will take over a very profitable Turin crew and that leads to a lot of issues, such as when to split the gold, how much should each worker at each site get? the seven ounces the Hoffman's have produced won't pay for the porta potty. So likely Todd will take the Indian River gold to pay for the turbo trommel, to pay for equipment leasing, fuel, investor cut, landowner cut, etc and then divvy what is left up. If anything is left, then how do they split it? The guys who get pink slips will want paid immediately. And what percentages go to the pink slipped Quartz Creek workers versus the pink slipped Indian River crew.
I think Dave Turin won't take it and will probably leave (to return in season four as new competition) and possibly may take Big Red with him (since he and Dobbs designed it) unless todd pays them for what it is really worth.
we could possibly see Todd portrayed as evil as Dakota Fred for claim jumping.
