I had a thought, imagine if someone like Henry or Jack got somehow sent back in time, ended up in Spain, and came across/met Salazar as a boy? Before he REALLY hated pirates, and before his father betrayed their family?
The irony being that maybe, no matter how hard they try not to let Little Mando grow up to be a homicidal pirate hunter….it’s set in stone. He must suffer tremendously for the future to remain concrete.
Like something from Dr. Who, where the Doctor suffers.
Also, a bit like the Buterfly Effect
