Vane holds power on the island. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse so I didn't and I watched the episode last night. I'm really interested in the new character, Ned Low. Following that you end up with additional slow episodes that in the large scheme of things feel rather pointless to the audience even though they have their great moments. Every penny will go towards future content. John giving up everything and selling Flint out at the barest hint of torture.
I'm open to being convinced that something else is going on. There's a sad reason for that- Jannes Eiselen, the original Dufrense, suffered a recurrence of brain cancer in late 2013, right before season 2 began filming and had to leave. I presume someone will say what happened to the Ranger when the warship arrives back in Nassau. The plot for the episode was resolved in a single episode. Ned Lowe is a nasty piece of work, and he has a beef with her that I think she is not fully ready to deal with. How do I do that? I'd pay for Starz Play or for it on demand, I just need to know where I can watch it legally to support the show! It seemed like Nassau was doing good business too.
What else do we get to see? It's not just in the eyes, but the voice, too. Vane and a young boy -- who bears the same brand as Vane -- keep having meaningful eye contact. I never even realized that. Her intelligence doesn't equal her ambition and ego. I want to do everything I can to help the show but I'm not going to get cable just for this show. The corsets of the era smashed everyone's breast upwards -- Keira Knightly has spoken about how odd it was for her to have cleavage, though in her case make up enhanced the effect. Is the warship that they jacked the same on that handled them in the season finale? That's why I enjoy it all so much.
I was rooting for her last season and hoping she'd find some power in being a businesswoman, but none of that was on display this ep. Edited to add: All the London scenes were flashbacks?! That's some serious fan fiction right there! That will happen if he hurts Eleanor. They are pirates after all. My take is that the warship that shredded the Walrus and the Ranger is the escort assigned to the Urca de Lima and it is the same ship that was stationed offshore from the wrecked Urca in the last scene of Season 1. I like him, or at least sympathize, because, well, I totally sympathize. The Season 2 opener was smashing.
Oh one more thing I loved. Augustine is about 180 miles, probably not feasible in 4 days during July. Edited because I was being long-winded and redundant. I think you are speaking of the Quarter-master, Dufresne, and unless I am mistaken he is played by a different actor this season. Only to be surprised by how clever he was.
I also think it's not cool that she did that to Jack after he was pleading her case to Bonny. If it sank, did none of the crew Vane's former crew survive? They did a nice job aging him up and down to make the two timeframes so clearly different. The scenes with Flint and Silver were gold. The way she 'envied' what it felt like first meeting her husband. Female characters were a weak spot at the beginning, but that reeeeally changed quickly. The costume designer over on Outlander took some heat for that look with regard to the main character's wedding dress.
Especially Silver thinking that he was supposed to volunteer because they were going to escape. No one with breast implants need apply. Edited January 25, 2015 by peacefrog All the London scenes were flashbacks?! Yes, that dashing young representative of the Admiralty was a younger, cleaner version of our poor beleaguered ex Captain Flint. Edited January 25, 2015 by ArizonaAdmirer I liked it but can't remember everyone's name. Looking forward to hearing others take on it.
In the gold age of the piracy the Captain Flint and its crew, included the young John Silver, they will fight for the salvation of New Providence, the famous island to entertain criminals and pirates. If this season remains this good, I really hope they get some awards recognition beyond make up or sets. Not saying they definitely would have succeeded, but he is no captain, and certainly without a clear vision. When he gets to the island the big guy does not recognize him at first. I am not sure if it is the eye or his calmness. Then you have Jack Rackham in his phase where he is lost post mutiny in Vane's crew. That seems unlikely since I presume at least some of them were good swimmers.
Additionally there is Anne Bonny and her relationship with Jack, and also her growing romance with Max. This little plot is ripe for Rackham to get his groove back. Max again becomes part of throwing a wrench into things and affecting the course of events. The series centres on a group of pirates operating out of Nassau in the Bahamas. He wanted in on the consortium, but now he doesn't want to do his part? And with their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, Flint and Silver must join forces in a desperate bid for survival. Also I think he's hot, heh. One thing I like about all the starz shows is that all the nude women are actual women.
