roger the negotiator

[BLACK SAILS S3 SPOILERS!!!]

i just watched 3x07, where Flint and Woodes Rogers meet for negotiations on the beach, and can i just say I FUCKEN DIED when Rogers opened the conversation with with, “Lord Thomas Hamilton…” clearly having NO idea of the impact he was having.

Flint barely moved his face at first, but you could see his shoulders rising and falling like he was suddenly hyperventilating in shock. then after a few seconds he gets a hold of himself, and for the rest of the conversation he’s doing that quiet thing where a boiling rage is brewing deceptively beneath the surface. fucking A C T I N G .
