Season 4 DVD Special Features

Every second of film related to Black Sails is precious, so there should be no question that these are valuable by now, right? Inside the World of Black Sails 18:08 This segment is always a joy for its reliving of each episode, but I think season 4’s “Inside the World” is the best.  There are…

Episode 410 – XXXVIII

BEST FLINT MOMENT

Literally EVERYTHING.  This is Top Flint, from his insistence upon healing his relationship with Silver, to fighting giant Billy and winning, to seeing through Jack and Silver’s betrayal, to THAT SPEECH THOUGH.  And then, either in truth or in fiction, his absolutely beautiful reunion with Thomas.  God.  This rewatch has only confirmed without question that I love Captain James Flint beyond anything.

Episode 403 – XXXI

I do think the show wants us to support Flint, and I do think that Flint’s motivations are deepening beyond revenge to a more genuine desire to create something new.  BUT it is unquestionable that the showrunners want us to remember the power of narrative in shaping our allegiances, and to question why we see some people as good and others as bad, when really, they might not be so different.

Episode 401 – XXIX

If season three was about leadership and darkness, season four is about friendship and revenge.

Flint and Silver (and Madi) will be the main friendship pairing to watch this season, as already a lot happened that we didn’t see.  Post-coitus, Madi tries to remind Silver that he once feared being close to Flint, but Silver is unconcerned now, insisting things are different.  They are now secure in their friendship and the power they wield together, no matter Madi’s warning, “When a man first needs you and thereafter calls you a friend, a little suspicion is a healthy thing.”
