My favorite part was when they showed Rackham designing the "Jolly Roger" pirate flag that he's historically contributed with creating. I'm glad it wasn't done in one shot but it's being used to show just how keen and cunning Jack Rackham will eventually become. He was the one who in fact lead the mutiny against Charles Vane in history and become the new captain so it should be interesting to see him become a player
Now with my first comment out of the way. Yes, I too am tired of the gay angle being used to destroy someone's life and bring them into some sort of inner conflict. I think that Flint killing someone of extreme importance would have been more exciting, even if it was expected. In this case, I don't think we needed a "shocking" revelations, just the flashback to a scene where Flint's anger overwhelmed and he beat the shit out of someone. Hell, they could of done the gay thing, and then had Flint get called out on it and threatened, or his lover threatened, thus forcing him to rage out and kill. Maybe covering up the truth, as Flint does so well, could of worked to drive his conflicted brilliant insanity.
You tried WAY to hard to force that contrived joke. You could of at least gone with butt pirate or something..
