The Straw Hats and their allies are about to reach Enies Lobby. Galley-La foreman Paulie sketches the island's terrain and explains that, to save Robin, the crew must reach her before she passes through the Gate of Justice. Because the Straw Hats are the only ones capable of matching the CP9 in combat, the Franky Family and the Galley-La foremen plan to charge in first and open the island's gates to allow the Straw Hats to rush in riding the sea train. As Enies Lobby draws near, the gigantic Gate of Justice appears in the sky behind it. While his crewmates and allies gaze in awe, Luffy ignores the plan and strides past the first of the gates. On the other side of the island, in the Tower of Justice, Chief Spandam and the second half of CP9 await the arrival of Rob Lucci's group and their prisoners.
