Detailed Synopsis

The Good Fortune sits still on the ocean as a pirate ships pulls up next to it. The pirate ships' crew throws ropes to the vessel and the First Mate asks Captain Jefferson if it is wise to let the pirates taker their ship without a fight. Jefferson tells the First Mate that the pirates are men not monsters. The pirates board and Ned Low and Meeks walk up to Jefferson, who gives Ned the manifest of the ship and tells him that all the goods have been placed in neatly the cargo hold. Meeks shows Ned the manifest which lists Abigail Ashe as being on board. The Good Fortune's crew is slaughtered and Ned shoots Jefferson dead. Abigail is carried onto the pirate ship and after its goods are taken, The Good Fortune is set on fire. Captain Flint, John Silver and Dufresne watch as the Spanish crew continue to pile up gold on the beach. Dufresne tells Flint that his trial has been postponed in the hopes that Flint will help him steal the Spanish gold. Flint refuses to help Dufresne at first and then when back at camp starts to tell The Walrus crew his plan. Logan angrily yells that they should be cutting Flint's lying tongue from his head and Dufresne tells the crew to listen to Flint. Flint suggests they steal the warship and then take the gold. He continues to tell his plan of sending two people to kill any sentries on the ship while the rest of the crew readies an assault. De Groot gets upset with listening to Flint's plan and Flint volunteers to be one of the men to kill the sentries and Silver volunteers to be the other.

In London in 1705, a younger Flint meets Thomas Hamilton who tells him the history of the pirate issue in Nassau. He says that he has a plan to rid Nassau of the pirates and worries that Flint might be more interested in rising in his career than in accomplishing the goal. Eleanor Guthrie brings O'Malley with her to speak with Captain Charles Vane at the fort. Jenks then brings Eleanor to see Vane. They then wait as Vane finishes having sex with Idelle. Eleanor yells at Vane for not turning up at the Consortium meetings. She tells him that someone killed two watchmen and stole from warehouse and Captain Benjamin Hornigold, whose place he took, used to protect the Consortium. Vane asks Eleanor to consider if he plans on letting Flint's ship enter the bay and Eleanor warns him that she will remove him if he continues to antagonize her. Dufresne explains to Flint what signals to use and that even if they are successful that Flint and Silver will be expelled from the crew. Flint and Silver then start swimming towards the Spanish ship after Silver is shocked that Flint's plan didn't involve them just escaping. In the past, Flint takes Hamilton to a pirate hanging and tells him that the difficulty in changing the world is fighting against everyone else who want the status quo. Flint and Silver sneak onto the ship where the crew are sleeping.

Rackham is using the toilet when Impatient Pirate starts banging on the door and complains that he has been waiting ten minutes to use it. Rackham walks out of the restroom and is confronted by Pirate Thug who calls him the Crew Killer and then has his friends beat Rackham up. Rackham goes to the brothel and Anne Bonny asks him what happened after seeing his broken nose. Anne asks who did it to him and he tells her that she can't kill all of their enemies. Max tells Anne that she will send someone up to tend to Rackham, but Anne tells her to get away. As Flint and Silver are sneaking around the ship, Silver sees a boatswains whistle and steals it, which wakes the sailor up and Flint stabs the sailor in the neck. Flint is about to kill Silver when he tells him that he is the one who dragged Flint onto the beach. Silver calls the watchman down and Flint kills him, but in the process wakes the crew who surrounds him. Warehouse Cashier tells Meeks, who is with Mr. Holmes, how much money he will pay for the merchant goods. Eleanor walks over and Meeks tells her that Warehouse Cashier is offering a lower rate, just because the barrels have blood on them and she tells him that she isn't going to cover the costs of the Fancy's crews screw ups. Eleanor has a meeting with Rackham, Max and Anne and complains to Rackham that Captain Hallendale failed to capture a ship, because he is spending too much time at the brothel. Max tells Eleanor that she sold the information to Ned and Eleanor warns her not to meddle in her affairs again.

After the meeting, Anne angrily tells Rackham that either Max is turned into a prostitute again or Anne will deal with her. Spanish Boatswain tells Flint and Silver that he could torture them to find out information, but he offers to pay and release the person who tells him what he wants to know, and the other one shall be killed. Silver tells him everything. Silver is released and as Spanish Boatswain is about to shoot Flint, Silver hits him in the head, and he and Flint fight and kill the two guards. They bolt the door and Ranking Spanish Sailor tells the crew to find something to break the door down. Ranking Spanish Sailor hears a whistle and when he goes to see where it came from, a group of conquistadors motion at him that someone is coming. Ranking Spanish Sailor looks towards the water and Joji shoots him in the head. Joshua breaks the door down and he and the rest of The Walrus crew kill the remaining Spanish crew. They then manage to steal the Spanish ship and escape. Max talks with Anne and they kiss. Ned approaches Eleanor and tells her that he enjoys torturing people and Eleanor tells him to leave. In the past, Miranda Barlow tells Flint that she remembers what it was like meeting Thomas for the first time and Flint tells her his real name, James McGraw. She tells him that great men are invincible due to their relentless pursuit of creating a better world. Dufresne tells Flint and Silver that The Walrus crew voted 17 yea versus 15 nay votes to commute their sentences and they will be brought back to Nassau.
