Three days after Jack Sparrow's escape from Port Royal, Sparrow and his friends find themselves at Windward Cove, a place seemingly guarded by the undead. However, the skeletons in the Cove are actually nothing but big marionettes on strings pulled by the renegades. Sparrow and their leader, Mutti, find a ship belonging to the bounty hunters. Sparrow boards the ship and frees the imprisoned renegades but later, when the bounty hunters capture Mutti, Sparrow makes a deal with them, promising to lead them to the renegades' village. When they reach Windward Cove Sparrow turns against the bounty hunters. It turns out the skeletons beneath the sand really are the undead and they kill the bounty hunters.
