Pekoms tells Luffy that the wedding between Sanji and Big Mom's daughter is to form an alliance between the Vinsmoke family and the Charlotte family, and that the Staw Hats won't become her subordinates. However, once the wedding is complete, Sanji will no longer be part of the Straw Hat crew. Luffy retorts saying Sanji will refuse but Pekoms warns that if he does, then Big Mom will kill someone close to him. Luffy then makes the decision to follow Pekoms to the tea party to sabotage the wedding and bring Sanji back. Law reappears and after introducing his crew talks with Luffy about his plan, warning him that Kaido will be coming for them soon and that the country is also in danger. Master Cat Viper then shows up and orders a feast to be thrown in the Straw Hats honor. While the rest of the crew parties Brook, Robin and Franky stand guard at the city gate to prevent Kin'emon and Kanjuro from entering the kingdom and invoking the wrath of the Minks. Unfortunately the three of them end up falling asleep and the two samurai pass through the gate to look for Luffy.
