Captain Salazar is man fueled by hatred and vengeance, a self-appointed slaughterer of pirates. His hatred for Jack Sparrow turns him into a monster. It makes him ugly. It makes him dangerous. It makes him a dark cloud on the sea. Eventually, it becomes his downfall.
The path of revenge leads Captain Salazar to his own destruction. Meanwhile, Henry's loving path leads to restoration. Carina's quest for the truth of her family leads her to a father who loves her deeply enough to lay down his life to save her.
Finally, Jack Sparrow....
His unchanging, selfish priorities doom him to a repetitive fate. He has yet to discover the fulfillment that love can bring. Let us hope that he one day finds it. In the meantime, he continues to sail the seas ready for life's next adventure.
