Black Sails on starz

This pirate adventure centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island. Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day, a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.
Bonny confesses, Rackham makes a life-altering decision and Richard forces Eleanor's hand. Meanwhile, a chess match is organised for Flint and the Walrus crew.
Captain Flint is warned about Billy, Vane encounters someone from his past and Eleanor asks her father for help. Meanwhile, the crew of The Walrus suffer a disastrous undertaking.
While Flint and Gates realise they need help to find the Urca d'Lima, John and Billy have to increase the crew's morale. Also, Vane impresses Eleanor and Gates receives a promotion.
While Flint discovers a thief amongst his crew, Eleanor must make a difficult decision and John hides with Max, inside a brothel.
1715: The Golden Age of Piracy. New Providence is a lawless island, controlled by history's most notorious pirate captains. The most feared: Captain Flint.

Whilst facing threats on all sides, including a possible mutiny, Captain Flint hires a young sailor named John Silver, who hides his most precious possession. Meanwhile, as the Royal Navy gets ever more powerful, Eleanor keeps order on New Providence.
