Black Sails Keelhaul Scene *SPOILERS*
For those who haven't watched the show, you need to get off your ass, it's fantastic, but I recommend not reading further.


Anyway, I cannot find the clip anywhere, but Edward 'Blackbeard' Teach's death has got to be the most brutal scene in television history. It's brilliantly executed, but so hard to watch, and you just can't unsee it.

Can't think of another scene that rivals it

The Passion? Hell it was basically the same thing without the water.

But that's a fair comparison I suppose

A few from sons of anarchy were in the same feel, but black sails pulled off something on a much larger scale. And you're right, it's something you don't forget.

Rackham was a dumbass for surrendering

Blackbeard was a complete badass in that scene. Brutal.

Amazing show. I watched based on recommendations of this board and loved it.

A couple other grisly deaths:

The wrong guy gets his skull caved in with a fire extinguisher in Irreversible

The innocent mousy girl slaughtered upside down and nude in Hostel 2

The “eagle” or whatever scene in Vikings is brutal

Ah yes, the biannual slobber thread for Black Sails. Thought it was about time.

Here's a video that describes keelhauling and shows some of the scene. I've seen another with some historians saying that that scene was the most accurate portrayal of keelhauling ever put on film, but I can't find it. Ray Stevenson was brilliant in the show in general but that scene was just unreal.

I didn’t realize what was happening at first but yeah it was brutal. That one scene in the tavern in season two where the guy is held down on the table in middle of a crowded bar... you have no idea why he’s screaming and then you hear the “thud” and roll.

Well, it’s fricking awesome. So scroll the frick on.

For the OP, even though the show had fully jumped shark at that point Tara’s death in SOA was pretty brutal.

No doubt a great show but that scene was down right brutal and awesome at the same time!

The fight scene when Rackham’s crew is fighting unarmed one by one against the giant British soldier was brutal.

That was pretty rough, I probably forgot about it because the show had gone from "Must watch" to "I'll get around to it eventually " at that point.
