“Why did they even bother to have Charles Mesure in this episode? I was ashamed to see how his character was used just as a way to glorify Hook. Honestly, if you have THAT actor in your show, you might as well fucking use him! What a big disappointment this episode was!”
I love Hook’s character but I love Charles Mesure too and wanted Blackbeard to be a bigger character. I’m really hoping he’s not dead because like I said before somewhere else, it’s wasted potential.
But I don’t think Hook won to glorify Hook. I think Hook won the sword fight because the writers wanted to lead into the choice he made with Ariel and the guilt of that choice and how it’s going to further the story line with him and Emma and her magic now.
Bring back Blackbeard tho. Seriously I’d love him to be the season big bad at some point.
Charles Mesure as Black Beard, episode 3.17 “The Jolly Roger”
The mentalist 6/16
Charles Mesure, who plays Blackbeard, is fantastic. You don’t really get much more iconic, as a pirate, than Blackbeard. People are in for a treat, with that episode. You’ll get to see Hook interacting a bit with quite a formidable pirate.
