So I just need to talk about something I just realized rewatching Pirates of the Caribbean
So you know the beginning of the series when we first meet the Swann household and Will Turner as Will delivers the sword Governor Swann had comissioned for Norrington?
Well as we are clearly told, Will made that sword and not his master. Norrington’s sword was made by William Turner. Then in the second film, we meet Cutler Beckett and as he is arresting Elizabeth and Will on their wedding day, he mentions Norrington is no longer around and reveals that he himself is the new owner of Norrington’s sword. Okay, yeah, still not THAT hard to miss, right?
So the films go on and we eventually get to the third film, when Norrington has now returned to the East India Trading Company and is Admiral on the Dutchman. He then sets Elizabeth and her crew free, where he is promptly caught by Bootstrap and murdered by Davy Jones. Davy Jones then picks up Norrington’s sword and mutters “nice sword!” before taking it and leaving Norrington’s body behind.
So now the sword Will Turner made passed from Norrington > Cutler Beckett > Norrington > Davy Jones
Davy Jones then murders Will Turner by stabbing him through the heart with his sword. A sword Will Turner knows very well.
Because Will Turner made it.
Will Turner made the sword that would kill him and eventually bind him to The Flying Dutchman.
