The next episode of Black Sails season two airs this Saturday and we have an exclusive clip. In the video, Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New) converses with Max (Jessica Parker Kennedy) about her decision to declare war.
“There is no part of this that is complicated,” Eleanor begins the scene. “I crossed Charles, he retaliated. It is what happens in a war.”
“A war?” Max queries.
“A state of affairs in which resolution only comes when one side has suffered enough pain and is willing to concede its principles,” explains Eleanor.
