While season one of Black Sails (Starz, Saturdays, 9/8C) introduced the characters, the very ahead-of-its-time pirate government and economic system and Captain Flint’s goal of true independence for Nassau, season two found Flint and his crew looking to make the biggest score in history and, in so doing, produce the financial support to make his dream possible, it also looked at Flint’s past and gave us insight into how he became the man he is in the show’s present.

Beginning with tonight’s third season premiere, Black Sails is headed into shipkiller storms – physically and metaphorically.
