Exclusive Black Sails First Look: Can Silver Protect Flint from Billy?

Why Silver thinks Billy should be patient

Adam Bryant

Now that Billy Bones is back in Nassau on Black Sails, he wants nothing more than to visit his old friends from the crew of The Walrus.

Unfortunately for Billy (Tom Hopper), John Silver (Luke Arnold) stands in his way. In the exclusive sneak peek from Saturday's episode (9/8c, Starz) below, Billy wonders if Silver is afraid for Billy to cross paths with Capt. Flint (Toby Stephens), who may or may not have thrown Billy overboard.

"You didn't want me with the men. You worried that I'll challenge Flint?" Billy asks. But as usual, Silver's concern for Flint is mostly tied to Silver's own greed for the Urca de Lima's gold. As such, he cautions Billy to temporarily put his trust in Flint -- as Billy has done in the past.

"You were the same man, who when handed a blank page from Mr. Singleton's corpse, stood by the captain for the sake of the bigger picture," Silver says. "The same kind of perspective is called for now."

But will Billy abide Silver's calls for patience? Check out the sneak peek below and catch Black Sails Saturday at 9/8c on Starz.
