We want to support the show. There were a few times when I didn't like him throughout the series, but on closer inspection, he's pretty badass, and loyal, and I'm glad he's still knockin about. I would prefer another end for Flint, as harsh as that may be. . Black Sails Torrent Download Info Episode Name Dload Size Released Seeds 457. That the reports of his death are false. He definitely has a plan, and I don't imagine it includes any softness or kindness towards Eleanor.
Watch out for spoilers in the comments if you haven't seen it yet. So we have two wild cards that have no idea whats going on with the deal between Silver, Flint and Eleanor. I think that in its own way would be far more poignant. While others died by either of hanging or in combat during 1720-s. Bonny may have been ransomed back to her family. For expelling pirates and all that. A reunion between Flint and Thomas would be so emotional.
Then when Dufresne came up with the people who would take the pardons, De Groot wasn't among those traitors, nor did he fall in with Hornigold. As the British Navy returns to redeem their land and exterminate Flint and his crew, another side of him emerges. But I don't want a happily ever after. If they handle this potential reemergence of Thomas Hamilton just right. I was hoping she got to finish that big fucker off though, but watching Rackham smash his head in with his own mallet was very satisfying.
It felt like a light to dark transition, but without any change in lighting or facial expression. Not only that we have Rackham coming in behind Woodes. That it has anything to do with him at all. Many opponents stand in their way: rival captains, jealous of Flint's power; Eleanor's ambitious and intrusive father; and a young sailor recently recruited onto Flint's crew, John Silver, who constantly undermines his captain's agenda. The most feared is Captain Flint.
We meet characters from history - Captain Charles Vane, Governor Woodes Rogers, Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny - plus characters from fiction - Captain Flint and, of course, Long John Silver. It's too much of a Hollywood ending for a show that is not afraid to show us how harsh the world of piracy can be. Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Captain Flint aligns himself with Eleanor Guthrie, daughter of the local kingpin, to hunt the ultimate prize and ensure their survival. New Providence Island is a lawless territory, controlled by history's most notorious pirate captains. She has become the physical embodiment of everything he despises, hopefully there will be no mercy for her. I'll be very interested to see what impact Julius has, especially now that Flint isn't out there.
I think the writers are setting up Guthrie for an end where she either dies in prison, possibly in childbirth, or is spirited away to the place where wealthy families send their wayward offspring. I think the writers can make it poignant but it somehow wouldn't really fit with the show. I worry it will feel too lame though, if they don't do this correctly. Most likely super pissed off. Sure, your mind went there, so did Silver's, but it still seems unlikely. But what is clear is that, as it stands, there's really no good indication that this place where rich families send their unwanted sons has anything to do with Thomas at all besides reminding Silver of Thomas, and giving him a way to recontextualize him in a way that makes Flint see things from his perspective.

The camera moves across his face slowly from a distance behind the bars of the cell door, and as the bar crosses his face at the mid point of his face, his expression registered no change except in his eyes; but that last moment on his stoic expression became menacing. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day — a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality. And when tortured and separated from his left ear, he divulged absolutely no information. Perhaps the show will go in that direction, perhaps all Max's detailing of that place was just to give Silver the idea to have Flint see things from his perspective. The series centres on a group of pirates operating out of Nassau in the Bahamas.
The mere existence of such a place doesn't mean that Thomas is there. Link flair can be used to add this warning after submission if you forget. I wonder if Flint would continue with the war if Thomas is alive? Although he might have been against some of our main guys at several points, he always did so out of loyalty to his brothers. Spoiler tags: Spoiler tags are now implemented! Also, Britain wins, and there's a real-life statue of Woodes Rogers in actual real-life Nassau. Because, like the most of them, Anne Bonny was a real historical figure. I think in Flint's mind she's committed the ultimate betrayal in siding with England, killing Vane and marrying the Governor.
