Black Sails XXV (Starz 5 Mar 2016, with Andre Jacobs)

Black Sails XXV

In Black Sails XXV Spain has become infuriated that not only has the gold not been returned to them but that some of it has been converted into a cache of more transportable black pearls. Rogers knows he needs to get his hands on the gems, which have been hidden by Rackham and Bonny, and return them to the Spanish. Flint and Vane aim to get the cache first and then dictate their own terms.

The Maroon Queen insists that her daughter Madi accompany Flint and his crew, she will be a vital conduit between the slaves on the island and Flint. It will also let her get closer to Silver.

Silver, Billy and Madi sneak onto Nassau to start sowing the seeds of discontent and reveal the news that Flint is not in fact dead as everybody on the island believes. When Dufresne starts to speak out against Flint, Silver kills him in brutal fashion. He makes it plain he wants to see everybody on the beach tomorrow ready to rejoin Flint’s crew – if they don’t there will be repercussions, the men will forever have to be looking over their shoulder and Silver has a “long” memory.

Max tells Eleanor that people are talking about her friendship with Rogers and that it could undermine the work he is trying to accomplish on the island. Eleanor responds by taking Rogers to bed.

Rogers arranges matters so that, apart from himself and a couple of guards, the beach is deserted when Flint and co arrive. A tense meeting between the two sees Flint making it plain that he will not rest until the English are off “his” island. Rogers makes it plain the free pardon is no more and any one who commits an act of piracy will be classed as one of Flint’s men.

classic quotes
