Flint agrees to earn the conversion of his 'death sentence' from mutineers captain Dufresne by attempting to get hold, if not of the all-too-heavily-guarded Spanish treasure, at least of the well-armed ship, an 'invincible' prize. Silver volunteers for the suicide mission, actually hoping it's just an escape scam, but proves invaluably shrewd. They just still be rescued from the Spanish guard commander's torture room, but the galleon is won. In Nassau, Captain Charles Vane claims his seat on the pirates council as master of the fort, yet refuses to do the garrison security job that Eleanor claims goes with it. nearly-generally hated badly beaten Jack literally sinks to public pissing pole, yet hopes to scam his way back with the brothel gang.

The dispute between Ned Lowe and Eleanor begin when she objects to blood stained barrels he is trying to sell her on the grounds that she will have to repackage the contents to avoid suspicion. However, all sailing ships of the time would have had a carpenter as part of the crew who could easily have planed the off the bloody exterior layer of the barrel. See more »

S2 starts off strong
24 January 2015 | by SuperHelpfulMedicSee all my reviews

Episode 7 and 8 of season 1 were exponentially more exciting than 1-6, which helped provide a great build up.

Episode 9 continues in the same spirit as 7 and 8, while also managing to deliver a new subplot, characters and back story.

Vane and Eleanor tension grows but also hints at new possibilities of alliances, Flint's and Ms. Barlowe's back story begins to unravel, however, the shaky cam is unfortunately still there, but a lot less shaky, which is nice.

It finishes way too fast and leaves you wanting more! Looking to be a fun season.
