Detailed Synopsis

Max looks out her tent towards Anne Bonny. Billy Bones walks up to Logan, who is standing watch for the Scarborough and tells him that Lars is almost ready and he will have the bunker open on the Andromache open soon. Muldoon hands Lars, who is having soot put on him by Gates a bomb and gives him instructions on how to use it. Billy talks to Gates about how Richard Guthrie was supposed to be under guard by Miranda Barlow, and yet somehow managed to get free. The slaves pass a rag to each other until it reaches Eme who tries to hand it to Mr. Scott. When he doesn't take it, Alpha Slave says something and Eme translates to Mr. Scott that Alpha Slave wants him to take it and place it through a porthole. The Alpha Slave continues speaking and Eme tells Mr. Scott that the Alpha Slave has a plan to help the crew of The Walrus and thinks if they do, then The Walrus crew will take them with them. Mr. Scott refuses and says he cannot let the cannons get onto The Walrus. Eme then does it herself. Captain Lilywhite continues to talk about overthrowing the Guthrie family. Captain Lawrence gets upset about Eleanor Guthrie being in her office by herself for two hours. Captain Naft tells Frasier that he thinks it is a good sign that Eleanor will lift the ban on Captain Charles Vane.

Eleanor walks out of her office and tells Captain Benjamin Hornigold that she will lift the ban and as she does Hamund makes a point of laughing at her. Hamund goes back to the Ranger camp and tells them that Eleanor has lifted the ban. He walks towards Max's tent and Anne stands in his way. Slade tells him that Anne doesn't want anyone touching Max anymore. Rackham tries to defuse the situation and Hamund snickers at Anne as he walks past her into Max's tent. Billy opens the letter he found from Miranda in which she asks Justice Addington Thomas for a pardon for Captain Flint. She writes that Flint wishes to repent and is a good man. Lars sneaks towards the bunker, but is spotted by Hayes and shot dead. Billy shows Gates the letter and tells him that he knows what happened on the Maria Aleyne. Pastor Lambrick rides to Miranda's house and tells her that Richard was taken in by Mr. Underhill and then offered to get him a political position if he protects him. Lambrick then tells Miranda that Richard has betrayed Flint and Flint will seek vengeance. Anne goes to see Eleanor and asks her to kill Hamund, and Eleanor comes up with a plan to kill Hamund and the others on his side. Eleanor goes to John Silver and threatens him if he doesn't help her and Anne.

Miranda tells Lambrick about her old life with her husband. She tells him that Flint brought her to the island after her husband died. She kisses Lambrick and they have sex. Gates tells the crew of the plan to have four men dangle over the side of the ship to cut a hole in it in order to place a charge inside. After getting no volunteers, Flint choose Paxton, Bobby, Dooly, and Logan. Logan argues with the order and tries to get Billy to stand up to Flint. Gates knocks Logan unconscious and tells the crew that while they are in battle Flint's orders are the law. A pirate whistles to Flint and shows him the rag the slaves placed in the porthole. Eme tells Mr. Scott that he will never see the person he is willing to sacrifice their lives for again. The slaves are thrown a spike from the porthole and when their guard checks on them, Mr. Scott tells him that Eme is a trouble maker. As the guard is about to search Eme, Mr. Scott chokes him to death with his chains. The crew of The Walrus start to rhythmically chop at the Andromache and Mr. Scott figures their plan out and uses the spike to start breaking the chains. Captain Bryson figures out something is wrong and sends Hayes to the hold. The slaves attack and kill them and then charge into the bunker and as Bryson is choking Mr. Scott to death, he is shot in the face by a Walrus crew member. Mr. Scott opens the door of the bunker allowing The Walrus crew to come in.

As Bryson crawls to the explosive charge he set, Eme stabs him to death. Silver walks up to Hamund and offers to sell him the stolen page and then suggests Rackham gave Max some of the pearls. Hamund and the rest of the Ranger crew break into a room where Rackham and Anne are and confront him. Hamund then points at Anne and says she must have stolen the pearls. Rackham denies it and Hamund shows him pearls he found in Rackham's tent. As a couple of The Walrus crew are gathering supplies they accidentally set off Bryson's explosives. Flint worries the Scarborough might have seen the explosion and orders The Walrus to take off even with only a few cannons loaded on board. Flint and Billy go to cut the spire of the Andromache loose from their ship and while they are doing it, Flint asks Billy what was in the letter. The Andromache starts firing at them and Flint yells man over board and tells Gates that Billy fell into the water. Anne and Rackham lead Hamund, Slade and the rest of the Ranger crew to where she says the pearls are hid. Silver tells Eleanor that he doesn't know if he should be more afraid of her or Flint. The Ranger crew are ambushed by Eleanor's men and as O'Malley goes to kill Hamund, Anne stops him and stabs Hamund to death. Anne returns Max to the brothel and Max thanks her. Dufresne lists the dead including Old Jim Carver, Sebastian Frakes, and Billy Bones and their bodies and a sword are dropped into the ocean. Anne tells Rackham that Vane isn't coming back. Vane docks his ship and he stands in front of Albinus.
