It hasn’t always been a pirate’s life for Captain Flint (Toby Stephens). This season it seems “Black Sails” is digging a bit deeper into the personal life of the captain and his early days in London. As his early life has been kept quite a mystery, there are no doubt a lot of surprises to come. 

In a sneak peek exclusive clip for Zap2it above, see a flashback of Flint giving his advice on what will make Nassau into a successful colony. Of course his first suggestion is getting rid of pirates — but fans know that isn’t a likely possibility. It will be interesting to see how such a composed Navy man could change his tune about pirate affairs and what eventually sends the captain to the dark side. 
Also in the episode Flint gives DuFresne (Jannes Eiselen) advice on an important matter, while Eleanor (Hannah New) is conflicted when asked to depose a captain.
