Quotes

Captain Flint: All this will be for nothing. We will have been for nothing. Defined by their histories, distorted to fit into their narrative, until all that is left of us are the monsters in the stories they tell their children.

What Writing!
15 July 2018 | by paul-knittelSee all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed the writing for this episode as well as Toby's INCREDIBLY POWERFUL acting. My favorite? The truly inspired: From Black Sails XXXVIII

"They paint the world full of shadows. And then tell their children to stay close to the light. Their light. Their reasons. Their judgments. Because in the darkness, there be dragons."

"But it isn't true. We can prove that it isn't true. In the dark is discovery; There is possibility. There is freedom in the dark, Once someone has illuminated it. And who has been so close to doing it - As we are right now?"
