You do not? Love him? Beyond anything. But I could never hope that he… that he… That he would ever… He’s kind to me. And when we’re abed, I have reason to think I do please him. But I’d never call it love. He’s never used that word to me, and I misdoubt he ever shall.
Flint was in full on "I was lieutenant for a reason y'know" mode in season 4 and I love it. His ordering the redcoats, his ordering Rackham's crew, him getting the unwavering loyalty of Madi and her mother. He was so respected and so trusted for a few episodes and honestly it goes to show what he could have achieved had people trusted him and his brilliant mind earlier.
