After Zoro renders Hordy unconscious, a fishman has his captain take an Energy Steroid and attack the group again. In an attempt to flee the palace with Zoro, Usopp and Brook, Neptune uses Hoe, but Hordy captures the group. Meanwhile, Luffy, Shirahoshi, Hatchan, Sanji, Megalo and Chopper finally reach the Sea Forest. The group reunites with Jimbei, Nami and Franky; Jimbei is horrified that Shirahoshi has left the palace. It is revealed that Den is Tom's relative and has accepted Franky's offer to coat the Thousand Sunny. When Luffy discovers Otohime's grave, Jimbei reveals that Shirahoshi could not go to her mother's funeral, as she had encountered the poison from Decken. Jimbei learns about the current situation at Ryugu Palace and reveals that he has sent Arlong out into the East Blue eleven years earlier to Nami's horror.
