On paper, it’s all directed by her half-sister Miranda . . . but Master is pretty much her own boss. And to prove it, here’s what she’s doing today . . .

Getting a suit fitted for her best friend’s wedding — like a boss!

Sparrow: You see anybody like you around?

Freyde: Yes — by that vending machine.
