The Big Mom Pirates debate what to do. Perospero notes that Big Mom must still be alive because of her Vivre card. They assume that Kaido and his crew has taken her captive. Smoothie states that it’s unlikely to be true for their mother. In the Kuri Wastelands, Big Mom heads to Udon on a “crocoturtle that she tamed with two punches.” Big Mom seems to have lost just her memories of who she is, but not her power and her willingness to use it. Still hungry, Big Mom asks were Udon is located.
Nami, Robin, Brook, Shinobu, and Kanjuro discuss the events at Orochi’s palace. Robin says that she is “ashamed,” to have gained so little information. She then rattles off a large lists of information she did uncovered. Most importantly, Brook reveals that he found a poneglyph in the basement of the palace. However, He wasn’t able to write it down. Robin concludes that the poneglyph is at Kaido’s headquarters in Onigashuma.
Meanwhile, Sanji, Usopp, Franky, and Law are in the Flower Capital, the citizens mourn the death of Komurasaki’s. The Smart Den Den Mushi, the “smartsnail” is introduced. We learn that Kid has escaped from Udon’s prison. At the prison, Luffy is harassed by Gaoler Alpacaman who grossly spits on Luffy as he speaks. It’s unlikely that Kid escaped, as he didn’t remove his seastone handcuffs. Grandpa Hyo is assaulted by the guards, he refuse to give up his kibi dango.
Hyo reveals himself to be Hyogoro of the Flower. Luffy’s actions reminded him of ” the old days when noble men lived in Wano,” and he is now “willing to die with this fulfillment.” When Luffy sees him being attacked, he predictably charges at the guards. As he does so, Queen arrives, commenting on the noise. My first though regarding Queen’s arrival was that he and Big Mom are going to fight. We haven’t witness Big Mom fight in a full battle. I think this could be an opportunity for us to see what she’s capable of. It appears that the Strawhat’s are going to meet at the bathhouse.
I’m a little tired of the Strawhat’s being separated. I look forward to seeing them together again. This is the second so can impenetrable prison that Luffy has found himself trapped in. He will likely escape in the same way that he did in Impel Down, by inspiring the other prisoners to riot. This would probably lead to him having more support than he would normally. Also, apparently Page One wasn’t difficult for Sanji.
