Black Sails XXI (Starz 6 Feb 2016, Anna-Louise Plowman)

Black Sails XXI

In Black Sails XXI Max has discovered that Woodes Rogers, the new governor, and his fleet of ships will soon be arriving at Nassau. The news sparks no small amount of chaos, Flint is still at sea but Rackham thinks they should persuade all the captains to take the Governor’s ships on. Rogers, meanwhile, reveals to Eleanor that he has just 8 weeks to bring Nassau to heel.

With Flint missing believed dead Blackbeard spots an opportunity to take control of the defence of the island.

Flint and his crew have been becalmed for 12 days and things are looking dire. Food and water is running very low. Flint, Silver and Bones agree they need to reduce rations but Flint’s idea to only give food to the men critical to the sailing of the ship does not go down well.

XXI is an episode that feels like something of a transition. The arrival of two major players in the shape of Woodes Rogers and Blackbeard who are clearly going to have a major impact on what is to come.
