Despite Usopp's attempts to reason him about fighting Oars as Luffy is fighting Gecko Moriah, Zoro explains that their captain has most likely been tricked by now and that getting his shadow back is first priority and an excuse to test his new sword Shisui. As Zoro finds his 108 Caliber Phoenix has gain a stronger variation from his newly obtained sword, everyone realizes that Oars's tempering with Thriller Bark has moved the ship out of the Florian Triangle and into the clear night sky. Meanwhile, after ditching Luffy in the forest, Moriah's shadow returns to its master as he is meeting with Kuma. Kuma proceeds to explain of Blackbeard becoming the newest member of the Warlords while give Moriah advice from the World Government to not underestimate the Straw Hats as Crocodile had. Furious at the comment, Moriah refuses Kuma's offer to help him as he leaves his deal with the Straw Hats himself. Later entering the cockpit installed in Oars's stomach, Moriah's presence confirms Zoro's suspicions while making it hard for them to fight Oars with the remaining thirty minutes of night left. Usopp runs to the kitchen to gather more salt to purify Oars, but Moriya had Oars strike at Usopp while destroying the passage to the kitchen. Luckily, a healed Brook saves Usopp and has brought the Straw Hats a large bag of salt.
