Question: What happened to the rest of the armada after The Flying Dutchman and The Black Pearl sank the Endeavor? Did the English all just leave, or do we assume that the Pearl, Dutchman, and the rest of the pirates turned tail and fled?I doubt the armada would have just let them go because they sank one ship.Julie Wegner
Question: How come the boy in the beginning of the film has one of the nine coins? Who is he? And since Elizabeth was waiting for Will to return to shore, does that make Will a free man and severed from his bonds from the ship? Lastly, how when Will took over as captain of the Dutchman, all the crew members resumed human forms again?
Question: Because Will was a good captain on the Flying Dutchman and honoured his destiny, was he allowed to return to land for good after the one decade, unlike Davey Jones, therefore freeing his father and crew? Also, could Elizabeth board the Dutchman whenever she wanted to see Will?
Question: In the scene with Cutler Beckett, Davy Jones, and Will Turner, when they are discussing the brethren court and the first meeting, Davy Jones speaks to Beckett like he was there. Does this mean that Beckett was a former pirate and is this what Jack Sparrow meant by leaving his mark on Beckett?
Question: A few things; first, why is it Davy Jones and his crew, in some scenes towards the end, seem to work along the EIC so readily (for example, Davy Jones launching himself over Mercer to protect him)? I would think it would have been more of a 'following orders grudgingly, because they were forced to'. Also, related to the aforementioned scene, why didn't Jones just order the Dutchman to be taken underwater at the time, then take the chest back? They wouldn't have been able to fire their cannons or shoot guns with wet powder. Finally, was Jones really 'against' the Brethren Court? If he hadn't been fighting for the East India Company, would he have just kinda ignored the whole battle, still perhaps fighting on one side or the other to fulfill his own motives, or maybe even go so far as to fight with the Brethren?
Question: At the end of the movie where Jack is looking at the map for the Fountain of Youth, I'm pretty sure I saw in faint red writing "To Jerry." And then there is some other writing. Possibly a signature? Jerry is the producer's first name. Did anyone else see this? It is on the left side of the map.
Question: The song that the pirates, Elizabeth and her and Will's son sing - what's its name and what are all the words?
Question: Did Tia Dalma bring back Barbossa from the dead for the same reason as Captain Jack - because he was a pirate lord?
Question: After the 10 years is up and Will can stay on land, what happens to his heart? Does it somehow go back into his chest, does he not need it anymore, or is there some other explanation?
Question: Since this is the end, I have to wonder what might happen to all the characters, mainly Will and Elizabeth. Will she wait for Will even though he is the captain of the Flying Dutchman now? Why couldn't she go with him?
Question: When Barbossa cuts Jack's piece of eight from his hair what does he say and what does it mean?
Question: My question is the fact of Davy Jones, and now Will Turner, not being able to step on land except for once every ten years. What exactly is physically stopping them? It is hinted at in Dead Men Tell No Tales, that he would turn to ash, however, my question is, if that were to happen, the Dutchman would have no captain and the Dutchman must always have a captain. That is said repeatedly. So, unless there is some physical boundary, which, to me would make the buckets in the meeting in At World's End, be not possible, why can they not walk on land? Also, this one kinda ties in to the first, the Dutchman must always have a captain, so why did the soldiers' of the East India Trading Company point the cannons at it? There must be a captain. So, that couldn't actually work because then who would be captain? And I understand that it was the Mercer showing his power over Davy Jones, but they both had to know that it does not follow the logic of the Dutchman having to have a captain. Any ideas?
Question: How did the British manage to populate Port Royal (i.e. What is now Jamaica etc.) by so many ordinary people who were evidently dirt-poor already? Surely they were not all pirates and surely there were no shuttle ships. What was their motivation to move to the Caribbean, compared with the 19th and 20th century immigration waves to the U.S.?
