Luffy finds Nami in the pile of his crewmates' duplicates, and she reveals what happened between them and Charlotte Brûlée. Brûlée used the Mirror-Mirror Fruit to trap Carrot in a mirror, and the anthropomorphic flora ambushed Nami and Chopper, subduing the latter as Nami ran away. In the present, Luffy and Nami confront the buried man over what he knows, and he reveals that all the flora and fauna is alive because of receiving soul fragments from Big Mom's Soru Soru no Mi ability; she takes a month's worth of lifespan from all Totto Land citizens as taxation and releases them into the wild. When inquired as to how he knows this, the man reveals that he was once one of Big Mom's husbands. Meanwhile, Big Mom orders Charlotte Cracker, her tenth son and one of the Three Sweet Commanders in her crew to go and attack the Straw Hats, and he stomps through the Seducing Woods as he draws closer to Luffy, Nami, and Big Mom's ex-husband.
