Showrunner Maril Davis jumped in first, explaining: “We did purposefully leave it ambiguous, we did not want to answer that question.

“It wasn’t really so much revenge. In my mind I don’t think Brianna’s character is a revengeful sort really. She wouldn’t want to see anyone suffer. She knew Bonnet’s worst fear was drowning and honestly that’s a horrible way to go.
“So I think it was pity and I think she just wanted it to be over.”
