With the storm, the crew of the Spindrift has temporarily lost the scooner that had pursued them, but as they approach their waypoint in Honolulu, it has made an appearance again.
As Blackbeard makes his appearance on the deck of the Spindrift, Jack smells smoke and a fire is found. Measures are taken to extinguish the fire, including heroic actions by Blackbeard. It’s almost enough to make Betty believe he’s really on their side afterall. Was the fire an accident, or did Blackbeard set a smoke bomb on purpose?
Blackbeard flees the ship, but has he stolen the strong box with the chart and dragon eye ring?
PS: I love Jack’s observation when the fire is found. “That’s smoke! That means there’s a fire.” How astute.
