Storyline: Out of his own fears of commitment and of the obvious disapproval of Lizzie's father, Jack leaves her at the alter on their wedding day, leaving her heartbroken. However, while Jack's in Tortuga attempting to continue his life as a pirate, his compas stops working while his memories of Elizabeth consume him. As he recalls all of the things he had done before to be with her, he realizes he can't be without her and plans to return to Port Royal to fetch her. Elizabeth is also recalling how they had first met and how he'd stolen her breath away. Knowing she'll never love anyone else, she leaves Port Royal dressed as a boy, and heads to Tortuga to find him. Just as Jack is leaving to return to his love, Elizabeth finds him. They confess how they've missed each other and Jack apologizes for leaving her in the first place. She seems reluctant about his sincerity, but he realizes that his compas wasn't broken, that it had been pointing to her all along and he tells her so. He asks her to stay with him aboard the Pearl instead of returning to Port Royal to get married. must I really say what her answer is?
SEPIA are memories of their past together.
GRAYSCALE at the end are memories of their short time apart.
