Everything will be fine as long as they include the deleted scenes of Flint and Silver calling each other by their first names in the season 4 blu-ray. Because they accidentally forgot to include this very important relationship development in the actual show that I was expecting (not wishing) to happen.

Madi and John share a closeness. An affection for one another that evolved from a rapport built upon the pursuit of a common goal. Their familiarity and togetherness led to an intimacy that is most commonly found between a husband and wife. This warmth can also be expressed through intimate acts i.e., lovemaking.
No, Madi and John’s relationship isn’t merely friendship based. Which is why it may feel a bit rushed to some, as we haven’t witnessed numerous friendly interactions. Nevertheless, at it’s core, what Madi and John have is an intimate partnership. Which supersedes friendship everyday. Obviously, their relationship does not suffer from skipping this developmental step. In fact, this level of intimacy, It is the reason why John felt comfortable entrusting Madi with his biggest secret. -PitchingWoo™

Of Silver we have heard no more. That formidable seafaring man with one leg has at last gone clean out of my life; but I dare say he met his old Negress, and perhaps still lives in comfort with her and Captain Flint. It is to be hoped so, I suppose, for his chances of comfort in another world are very small.
Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island
ok but…’and perhaps still lives in comfort with her and captain flint’…
…’even if you can persuade her to keep you she’ll no longer be enough… and the comfort will grow stale’
he can only find comfort with some form of flint in his life
even if its a fucking parrot named after him
‘and captain flint’… robert is like ‘the parrot named after the man he was totally not in love with is essential for silver’s happiness you guys’
i imagine jon reading this bit like … ‘but what if WHAT IF………….. he didn’t mean the parrot he actually meant james’
‘this fits perfectly with our gay prequel and our unbury your gays trope’
and levine is like ‘…it gives silver and flint the gay ending starz deprived us from its canon’
so anway yeah all i see here is that silver lives in comfort with madi and james and thomas hamilton bye
