Blackbeard battles British forces in 'Crossbones' two-hour finale

Crossbones  met its end—the NBC series won’t be returning—in a two-hour finale, in which Santa Compana’s Commodore fully embraces his inner Blackbeard to face British forces led by sadistic and obsessed Jagger. In the first episode of the evening, “Crossbones,” the Commodore’s forgiveness seemingly knows no bounds when it comes to his bromance with Tom Lowe: 1) Lowe is a British spy, 2) Lowe was working directly for psycho spymaster William Jagger, the Commodore’s archenemy who is responsible for the advanced-stage crazy the Commodore’s first wife Antoinette currently suffers from, and 3) Lowe filled the hole he drilled in the Commodore’s head with a silver crossbones symbol—like a scarlet letter, but metal embedded in his flesh, not simply embroidered on his bodice. (To be clear: At no time does Blackbeard wear a bodice in  Crossbones —that we know of.) Read More... //community.ew.com/2014/08/03/crossbones-season-1-finale/

Crossbones (NBC) Interview: Richard Coyle On the Enduring Appeal of Pirates, Going Toe-To-Toe With Blackbeard and More

Crossbones  returns to NBC tonight, Friday, June 20th for its third installment of pirate action and spy intrigue as Lowe (Richard Coyle) and Blackbeard (John Malkovich) are forced to team up. The swashbuckling series has given British actor Coyle a complex character who the actor loves diving into.  TV Equals  recently joined in a conference call with Coyle where he discussed how he sees Lowe, why he finds going toe-to-toe with Malkovich so appealing, what is ahead this season and more. What Makes Lowe Tick Lowe is a spy for the British crown who is sent undercover to assassinate Blackbeard, but his job becomes complicated the closer he gets to Blackbeard. “I immediately liked the pas de deux between Lowe and Blackbeard, which was fascinating, and obviously it’s a series-long arc between these two characters,” Coyle said of his first impression of the pilot script.
