My sister and I have been reacquainting ourselves with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and we realized something rather hilarious. Every guy that Elizabeth Swann has ever kissed…DIES!
Jack Sparrow was the first to die after kissing Swann in an oopsy-daisy passionate smooch that turned out to be the ultimate swindle, leading to Sparrow’s abrupt departure to Davy Jones’ Locker via the gut of the Kraken.
Then Norrington, the man who wanted Elizabeth to be his wife in the first Pirates movie, ended up having to save Swann from Davy Jones’ clutches. In doing so, he gives Elizabeth a goodbye kiss and a moment later gets run through by a sword wielded by Will’s own father, which is a bit ironic. Lol.
And then last but definitely not least, there is Will who, after finally getting married to Elizabeth in the middle of a raging battle and sharing a passionate kiss in a rainstorm.
And we can’t forget Pirate Lord Sao Feng in all of this who sneaks a kiss on Swann before seconds later getting blasted by a cannonball and left with a chest full of wood.
To be in a relationship with Swann is obviously a deadly affair and that, in hindsight, is rather comical.
What do you think about this observation? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

It’s possibly not on purpose, especially since… doesn’t she kiss Will earlier in the movies before he dies? Or does she really not kiss him on screen until right before he gets carved up and put on the Flying Dutchman himself? It could well be a running joke if she didn’t. Sometimes movie makers just don’t notice stuff like this… but I find myself suspecting that patterns this consistent are usually not accidents in competently made movies, either. (See also: all the light and dark metaphors of the scenery during the several minutes of Anakin’s fall. Even at his worst, George Lucas was still way more artistically profound in his filmmaking than the guys who made the sequels.)

She kisses Will two times before the we-just-got-married-smooch but still…everyone that views her romantically bites the dust. 😆
I agree though! Like thats not a coincidence! Swan is just born a killer, naturally I suppose. I’m sorry people, but I for real ship Elizabeth x James. Like for real lol. Their awesome.

Me too. I wish they had gotten together in the end. I really like James and I hate that he died. But at least she did kiss him before his story came to an unfortunate end.
