As Will died Elizabeth shouted,

"No! no! no! no!"

Marie looked over at the Pearl and saw them pointing a canon at the masts. She realized they were going to separate the ships. The crew approached them and Bootstrap said,

"Part of the crew, part of the ship..."

Marie said to Jack,

"We have to go." She pointed at the Pearl. He nodded and began to pull Elizabeth to her feet. She struggled and shouted,

"Don't leave me! I won't leave you!"

Marie and Jack grabbed ropes and swung to the Pearl, Jack holding squirming Elizabeth and Marie holding Jack the monkey. As their feet touched the deck, the canon was fired and the ships separated. The Pearl pulled out of the Maelstrom while the Dutchman was sucked inside.

Marie looked at shaking Elizabeth an pulled her into a hug. Jack looked at her curiously and she shrugged. He gave her a gentle smile as Gibbs approached them,

"Jack, the armada's still out there, the Endeavour's coming up hard to starboard, and I think it's time we embraced that oldest and noblest of pirate traditions..."

"Never actually been one for tradition...luff the sails and lay on iron!"

At this Marie looked at Jack, even Elizabeth looked at him. Marie thought for a moment but couldn't understand it.

"Belay that, or we'll be a sitting duck." Barbossa argued,

"Belay that 'belay that.'"

"But captain..." Gibbs tried,

"Belay!" Jack said shortly.

"The armada..."


"The Endeavour..."

"Gibbs!" Marie cut in, "He knows what he's doing."

"But we..." Gibbs tried one last time.

"Shut it!!" Jack said to Gibbs who let his mouth shut with an audible snap. Marie stood with Jack on deck. Jack looked at the armada doubtfully and Marie asked nervously,

"Where is he?"

"Who?" Elizabeth asked. Neither of them answered but waited as Beckett's ships approached steadily. Just as they were about to be in range the Dutchman surfaced. Jack and Marie grinned and they proceeded to go on either side of the Endeavor.

"Full canvas!" Jack shouted grinning at the sight of Will.

"Aye, full canvas!" Barbossa agreed.

"Cap'n?" Gibbs asked,

Jack replied calmly,


"Fire!" Gibbs shouted.

At this the Dutchman and the Pearl blasted the Endeavor into pieces. Blowing it sky high. They sailed past and looked to armada to see what they would do. After a few minutes they heard the news.

"They're turning away!" Marty shouted.

At this the crew began to cheer. Marie hugged Jack in the excitement. He cocked an eyebrow at her mischievously and kissed her hard on the mouth. Marie grinned and looked out on the other pirate ships. They looked over to the next ship to see Captain Teague throw his hat, Jack and Marie smiled at him and then back at the crew. Jack spoke to Gibbs without looking at him,

"Mr. Gibbs, you may throw my hat if you like."

"Aye aye captain!" He said excitedly, "Hooray!" he shouted throwing it.

"Now go and get it." Jack said calmly.

At this Gibbs looked worriedly at the deck trying to locate the hat. Marie leaned her head on Jack and said,

"We did it."

"Of course we did." He grinned at her. She smiled and looked over at Elizabeth, then over at the Dutchman,

"So what now?" Marie asked,

Jack looked over at Elizabeth and understood. He said to her,

"They get their day…"

After the cheering Jack called for a rowboat. Elizabeth looked over at the Dutchman, Marie standing next to her.

"Your chariot awaits, your highness." Gibbs said to Elizabeth, "The oars are inside."

Elizabeth approached the longboat and passed by Barbossa,

"Mrs. Turner. "He said.

"Goodbye, Poppet." Pintel said.

Elizabeth looked at Jack and said,

"Jack, It would never have worked out between us."

"Keep telling yourself that, darlin'." He replied.

Marie pulled her into a hug and said,

"I'm going to miss you…"

Elizabeth looked at her,


"Ya." She said honestly.

"Thank you." Elizabeth said to the crew.

She rowed out toward the island and Marie said to Jack,

"So, does she go with Will?"

"No." He replied. "She'll wait for him."

She looked at him,

"I'm glad that wasn't you…"

He looked down at her,

"Aye, ten years is a long time." He agreed.

He moved to kiss her but she put a hand up. He looked at her confusedly and she said

"Jack…" He looked at her expectantly, she came closer and said quietly, "Take me to Tortuga."

He paused for a moment then grinned at her and said,
