Detailed Synopsis

Richard Guthrie's body is cleaned before his funeral. Eleanor Guthrie listens as Merchant tells her about how Richard gave him a job and how grateful he is to Richard. After he leaves, Eme asks Eleanor if she needs a rest. Max is next in line and offers Eleanor bread and fruits. Eleanor tells Max that she and Captain Charles Vane are at war and that those people waiting to give their condolences are only doing it so that Eleanor knows they are not her enemies. Max tells Rackham to leave as soon as possible for the Urca gold. Frasier knocks on Eleanor's door and tells her that the assassins are ready and she tells Pirate Thug and another thug that they strike at dawn. Captain Flint starts to give his proposal to Peter Ashe, but is cut off by Peter who tells Flint and Miranda Barlow that he doesn't understand how they could be the same people he once knew. Peter asks Flint how he became a pirate captain and when he decided to murder Alfred Hamilton. Miranda tells Peter that it was her that encouraged Flint to kill Alfred. Miranda stands up and William Rhett pulls out his pistol and points it at her and warns her and Flint that he will shoot them if they get any closer to Peter. Billy Bones gathers the riggers and tells them that one of them needs to fix the rigging and Rigger tells him that Nicholas' death is a bad omen.

John Silver sees Billy climbing the rigging and asks Vincent if Billy will find any indication that there was sabotage of the rope. Mr. Scott sees Dooley staring into the water and Dooley tells him that he saw something in the water. Pastor Lambrick leads Richard's funeral procession and Richard is buried. Afterwords, Eleanor speaks with Underhill and says that she would like to speak about their mutual ambitions. Flint tells Peter his plan for reconciliation and Miranda notices the clock on the wall. Abigail Ashe knocks on the door and tells Peter that Mrs. Tyler says it is time for dinner. Silver goes to look for Randall and finds him dead. Vincent pulls Silver behind the stairs and they watch as the crew in the cargo hold are silently killed. Billy sees Vane's men climb onto the deck and warns his fellow pirates. A battle erupts and during it, Vane kills Joshua and then fights Billy. The battle ends and Jenks tells Vane that the Man-'o' War is secure. Miranda asks Flint if he meant it when he said that he and Miranda would retire if Peter agreed to his plan. Flint tells her where the name Flint came from, from a story his grandfather told him of meeting a man who told him his name was Flint and then disappeared after being given rum.

House Attendant tells Flint and Miranda that dinner is ready. Silver tells Vincent that they have three options, hang in Charles Town, die on the ship or persuade Vane to hand over the ship. Eleanor tells Underhill of the plan to have Peter come to Nassau. He asks her how he can trust a pirate and she tells him that she will end piracy and has set plans in motion to end a plan to take the Urca gold. Pirate Thug and his accomplice start to murder Rackham's crew. Anne Bonny returns to the island and speaks with Rackham. Rackham tells her that he thought he would never see her again and she warns him and Featherstone as they are about to be attacked by Pirate Thug and the other thug. Anne kills Pirate Thug and then kills the other thug. During dinner, Peter has Rhett and Abigail wait in the hall. Peter tells Flint that he will help him, but on one condition. Rackham, Featherstone and Anne go to the brothel and Max tells them that Mr. Stayton and Mr. Atz are dead and tells them to leave as soon as possible. Silver and Vincent sabotage the ship. Vane tells Billy that his original plan was to recruit Billy if Singleton won the vote for captain. He tries to recruit Billy, but Billy tells him that he saw the garrison on Harbour Island and Flint's plan is the only plan.

Jenks tells Vane that they lost the forestay to a saboteur. Peter tells Flint that he will come to Nassau and then they will sail to London and Flint is to tell his tale. Flint agrees to the plan and Miranda asks Peter where he got the clock she noticed earlier. She tells him that she recognizes it from one that was in her house. Peter tells her that it was a gift from Alfred and Miranda asks him if he told Alfred about the affair between Thomas Hamilton and Flint. Peter admits to it, but says he had no choice. Miranda tells Peter that she wants to see him hang. Rhett shoots Miranda in the head and Flint charges at him and starts to strangle Rhett, but is beaten to the ground. Underhill agrees to join with Eleanor. As they leave the building, they find themselves surrounded by men. Captain Benjamin Hornigold tells Underhill to step aside and that they will be taking Eleanor. Vane approaches Silver, but is ambushed by Vincent, who holds a knife to his throat. The Boat Captain tells Vane and his men that Peter has a message for them, Flint has violated Peter's trust and he will be placed under arrest. Flint will be put on trial and hung and if the pirate ship remains, it will be sunk. Vane gets free of Vincent and brings Vincent and Silver on deck. Vane tells his crew that Nassau is strongest when it is feared and suggests they free Flint. Eleanor is brought before Captain Hume by Hornigold, Dufresne, Big Conspirator and the other pirates who left Flint's crew. Hume then hands over the pardons.
