This year, the Starz studio's pirate show will end with "Black Sails" Season 4. The series is gearing up for its final conclusion and the upcoming Episode 8 will show fans the beginning of the divide between Flint and Silver, after the latter finds out that Madi is alive.
The pirate show began in 2014 and quickly became a commercial success, with more than a million viewers watching every episode. Last year, Starz announced that "Black Sails" Season 4 would be the show's last run. So, what can audiences expect in the next few episodes? The main actors of the show told Den of Geek that it will finally lead to the events of "Treasure Island" and to the grim fates of both Flint and Silver.
Toby Stephens, who plays the show's Captain Flint, and Luke Arnold, the series' John Silver, revealed that fans shouldn't expect anything less than a tragedy. "So we know it doesn't end well," Stephen said about his character. Flint will not be getting his dream of pirate freedom in "Black Sales" Season 4 even though they were able to rally the pirate communities during Season 3.
The last season will also show fans what will happen to Flint and Silver's friendship and how those two ended up in their "Treasure Island" situations. Silver is also going to start thinking about his destiny when rumors of the great Long John Silver of the seas spread in "Black Sails" Season 4.
According to CarterMatt, the dynamic between Flint and Silver was one of the main elements of the show. However, their relationship and personalities have changed in "Black Sails" Season 4. Flint used to be the emotionally charged one, with revenge in his heart. Silver, meanwhile, was logical and level-headed. Now, their roles have been reversed and Silver has just learned that Madi (Zethu Dlomo) is, in fact, alive.
The "Black Sails" Season 4 Episode 8 will show audiences the Walrus crew on unchartered territory. Traitors are everywhere and the enemies are making their move. Max (Jessica Parker Kennedy) will know the price of freedom and Rackham (Toby Schmitz) will continue to stalk his prey. Fans should tune in on March 19 at Starz.
