Cover is Smoker's recovered, Tashigi, G-5 men, and the kids are celebrating with cotton candy party
Zoro tells Luffy that there's not much time, do whatever you have to do and meet them at the east port. While running south himself. Naturally.
At the marine operations tent, Bastille is taking charge as the big shots have gone after the pirates already.
The marines report that the target is likely running towards the East dock, and they'll send available men there.
Meanwhile, Abdullah and Jeet answers the marine calls at the East dock, saying the pirates there's no need for backup.
(The duo and Ideo have taken out all the marines there already, and Jeet is faking the call)
Bastille is on to him though, and demand his marine code and name. Jeet is unable to answer, and Bastille orders back up to head to east dock.
Straw Hats/Barto's group is being chased by marines, but the gladiators will hold off the enemy.
Cavendish, Sai, Baby 5, Hajrudin, Suleiman, and Blue Gilly all stands in the way between the marines and Barto's group.
Meanwhile, Luffy is at the palace, calling out Rebecca's name.
Rebecca comes to the window and calls out to Luffy, while the marines near the palace charges towards him.
In the palace garden, Riku orders Lepanto to bring Rebecca and Viola, as he plans to head down to the town to announce his return to throne.
Luffy leaps to Rebecca's window. Rebecca says she needs to thank him for everything but Luffy says that's not why he came here.
He asks her if she's ok with Kyros. He plans to leave her side and never see her again!
Rebecca tearfully says she saw the letters, and she knows he's trying to distance himself from her.
She asks Luffy if he doesn't want to live with her anymore, but Luffy tells her I don't know, I'm about to leave this country.
You need to think for yourself. I came here to confirm if YOU are ok with this!
Rebecca cries out no, she's not ok with this.
Luffy asks her to come with him, and she agrees. Rebecca asks Viola to do her a favor.
Luffy carries Rebecca and leaps out of the castle.
A nobleman runs to King Riku to report. It's the straw hat Luffy! He has kidnapped the princess!
