Our Flag Means Death Story
The series is inspired by the life of the real-life Gentleman Pirate, Stede Bonnet. Beginning in 1717, the first season follows Bonnet as he embarks on a life of crime after leaving behind his family and the affluence of his landed aristocratic background in Barbados. Bonnet is shown as being unqualified for the post since he lacks experience outside of his wealthy upbringing.
Captain Bonnet and his dysfunctional crew of the Revenge face off against naval vessels and other savage pirates as they try to stay alive at sea. The crew of the Revenge meets the infamous pirate captain Edward Teach and his crew, featuring First Mate Izzy Hands, during their many adventures. When Teach and Bonnet start dating, turmoil and comedy ensue.

Our Flag Means Death Season 2 Plot
Max has released the official logline for Our Flag Means Death season 2: The fictional story of Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby), an 18th-century aspiring pirate, is partially based on real events. Stede turned captain of the pirate ship Revenge after giving up the seemingly pampered life of a nobleman. After a fateful encounter with Captain Blackbeard (Taika Waititi), Stede was able to win over his possibly rebellious crew. Blackbeard and Stede, two very different people, found more than camaraderie on the high seas; they fell in love. They must fight through it now.
Our Flag Means Death Season 2 Episode 3 Recap
After being killed by his crew, Ed is stuck in the third episode of the romantic comedy and must decide whether he will head to the afterlife or return to Earth. He makes a wise decision and awakens up with his girlfriend Stede by his side.
They’ll have a lot to discuss in the fourth episode of Season 2 of Our Flag Means Death. In the first episode, Stede tries to assassinate Ed’s old enemy Ben Hornigold but fails miserably because Hornigold is immortal. Is Ed going to take a chance this time?
In addition, Stede and Olu are pleased by the arrangement that China’s pirate queen, Zheng Yi Sao, makes with the opposing captain. As it stands, the agreement won’t hold. After helping Ed’s group getaway, Stede and his men take them back to the Revenge. Is that a possible ambush spot for an enemy?
