On the East Coast Whole Cake Islands: Pekoms is beside himself as the Sun Pirates is about to leave, leaving him behind to leave Big Mom’s territory, which is strictly forbidden.

This, in turn, had made him realize that Jigra was plotting to assassinate Big Mom, as she once murdered Jigra’s father. Finally, Charlotte Linlin herself appears on the scene and welcomes her guests. The tea party begins…
