What can you say about Captain Flint’s story this season and where things are headed for him? Just how dark are things going to get?
STEPHENS: Well, we know that it’s tragedy because the revolution and the emancipation that Flint wants didn’t happen. And Silver ends up being this tragic figure in Treasure Island, who connives his way back to Treasure Island, and then ends up not even getting the treasure at the end of that. And the Golden Age of Piracy ended, so we know that it doesn’t end well. It’s just about, how does it end? This season really is the endgame for all of that. It’s also about the relationship between Silver and Flint, and how that plays out. What happens to Flint, and how does Silver become Long John Silver of Treasure Island?
