After a night of lovemaking, Lowe and Kate wake up in each other's arms. Kate explains that the moment cannot linger - she must head to Adderley Cay to secure provisions for the island. She leaves straight away and arrives without incident, meeting her contact and bargaining with loot from Lowe's former ship, the HMS Petrel. This time, however, she senses danger as their small talk extends - and rightly so. A band of Redcoats emerges from the beach and detains her in an instant; her contact sold her out. The soldiers tie her to a post and await the arrival of their notorious boss, Governor of Jamaica, William Jagger.
Meanwhile, a medical emergency summons Lowe to the bordello where he discovers Nelly in labor, her pregnancy a total surprise. With Fletch's help, he delivers the baby and later, alone with Blackbeard, the two ponder Santa Campana's first child. It leads Blackbeard to consider himself, and he admits to Lowe that his visions, voices and intense headaches continue.
