Soon after the team and Mary Read's crew docked on Skull Island, the priestess' apprentice, Agwé, informed them that they must wait three days for the priestess to awaken from her holy trance. After two days of waiting, Mary told the team that she had found Agwé dead near the ship. Jack and the player then collected his body.
Mid-investigation, Priestess Jemimah Mabayo woke up from her trance a day earlier than expected. The team were then forced to suspect Zara of the murder after they found evidence of her snooping around in the priestess' hut. Later, Zara started telling the team to give up their investigation, saying that she had accepted her life as a blue and scaly fish. The team fortunately found enough evidence to arrest Mary's crewman, Jorge de la Cruz, of the murder.
Jorge admitted that in the two days they were on the island talking to each other, he started falling in love with Agwé. After Agwé tried to kiss him, he panicked as he knew homosexual acts were not approved by pirates. He then bashed Agwé's head in with a cognac bottle, intending to scare him but killing him instead. Mary then removed Jorge from her crew, ordering him to stay behind on the island to await the voodoo gods' punishment.
Post-trial, Zara and the player approached the priestess to restore her back to normal. After finding her the necessary ingredients, Mabayo gave Zara a concoction to counter the "curse". After examining the potion, Theo concluded that the "curse" was actually the skin's reaction to a substance that had formed on the coins from a reaction with the fresh oxygen in the air after they unearthed it. He then applied it on the coins to make them safe to touch while Zara drank the rest, restoring her.
Meanwhile, Penelope and the player approached Mary and stall owner Derek Trollope to learn about the ways of the pirate life for her book. After all the events, the team set sail for Tortuga to get there before the day of the auction.
