The Escape[]

"You would sleep through your own hanging, Jack."
"I just assumed they'd wake me."
"There's only one hour until daylight, Jack. One hour to escape the hangman's noose."
"Escape? My favorite two syllable word. You have a plan?"
"Always. Just follow my lead, eh?
Edward Teague and Jack Sparrow[src]

Jack, worried about his debt with Davy Jones, sailed to the Mediterranean Sea to find a clue to the Dead Man's Chest. As his crew, waited along the coast, covered in fog, Jack set off on his own to search the prison.

Jack was soon captured and put in a cell. Fortunately, for some unknown reasons, Captain Edward Teague, Jack's father, was at the prison as well. After springing his son from the cell, Teague warned Jack that he must hurry.

Jack, after freeing several prisoners, faced off against Warder, the captain of the guards and Mordillah, the warden. With both men subdued, Jack found the drawing of the Key to the Dead Man's Chest. Sneaking away in a floating coffin, Jack Sparrow made it back to his ship, the Black Pearl.

Notes and references[]

  1. The timeline established in On Stranger Tides (which takes place in 1750) and Dead Men Tell No Tales (which takes place in 1751) sets the events of Dead Man's Chest around 1729. However, the exact placement still has to be officially confirmed by The Walt Disney Company.
