Flint digs a hole to bury Rackham and Anne's treasure chest in. Silver asks Flint if he thinks it is a good idea to bury the chest without telling friends and Rackham agrees with Flint that it is best that The Maroon Queen doesn't know. Flint tells Silver that The Maroon Queen knows and she agreed to it as long as Silver knew where it was hidden. Silver asks Flint if he is having second thoughts about the upcoming war with England and the soon to be personal losses that will happen on both sides, but Flint only regrets the necessity of it. Silver asks Flint what caused the rift between him and England, but Flint doesn't answer. Later, Flint tells Silver about his relationship with Thomas Hamilton and what started his war with England. Silver tells Flint that he chose Dobbs to lead Hornigold into a trap. Flint is surprised that Silver chose Dobbs due to Silver having recently punished Dobbs. Silver reveals to Flint that he believes that Dobbs feels shame for having disappointed him and will do anything he asks to regain Silver's good favor. The battle begins and Silver hands Madi a rifle and she tells him that The Maroon Queen let her fight, because she knows that soon, Madi will have to take her place as the leader of their people.
