Black Sails XVIII (Starz 28 Mar 2015, with Bart Fouche)

In Black Sails XVIII the season two finale of Black Sails, Vane is convinced that rescuing Flint is the perfect way to show that the Pirates are still a force to be reckoned with. Flint is standing trial in the centre of Charlestown, part of Vane’s plan involves him giving himself up and handing in as evidence the diary Abigail Ashe kept on board and painted Flint in a different light.

The stakes are incredibly high but it’s epic in scope and intent and pulled off superbly. Vane and his crew’s attack is quickly followed by Silver leading the rescue of the crew, it’s also the catalyst for him losing his leg and becoming the Long John Silver of Treasure Island legend.

Despite the fact that he has lost his leg he is held in such high regard that he is made quartermaster. Silver also tells Flint that the gold wasn’t lost at all. In the meantime Rackham pulls into Nassau with his own ship and Flint’s former ship The Walrus, both heavily laden with Spanish gold.
