Anyone want to bet that the flag that Rackham and the girl come up with will be the "Skull and Crossbones"?

Wow what a twist.... It now explains a lot and they did really well. I had no clue. I also like the fact that they did not do what most cable channels do and that's an over the top gay sex scene.

Who knows it may well be on the cards. I don't!! And my shock is proof of that!

I can't believe how much better season 2 is than season 1. This episode was fantastic!!If they had told more of Flints story through Season 1 this show would be on a lot more must watch lists!! Well done.

Wait, what? That was shoehorned in for the sake of being "modern".Tho' they managed to twist it nicely.I saw it coming for Thomas, the way he was ok with his wife's affairs. But Flint was a shocker.

I completely disagree. They've been setting this up nicely all season, and the reveal of it finally makes a lot of what happened in Season 1 make sense. If I blame the writers for anything it's waiting till halfway through the second season to do it.

Now that you mention it, some weir stuff from the first season does fit with the current situation... Maybe you're right to disagree with me :)

Flint's romantic involvement with with Hamilton seems a plot twist that is contrived to satisfy the desires of creatives and financiers of the series. The attempt to ratchet tension is a slightly veiled manipulation that was not organic to the times. Please understand, and come to terms, with minority status. Certainly all beings are to be treated with respect and compassion. However, perpetrating private agendas via theatrical medium only debases your status as an artist, or lover of the arts. The thread developed and displayed in this last episode only served to present your ego, thus making this an egocentric entity. Leave yourself, as much as able, out of the story and let it develop as best as able, as a function of the time and place of which you are attempting to transport your audience to.moreless

It felt a little contrived, for sure. I'm okay with that, it was still well done.
