Meanwhile, on a local spring island, Apoo runs on an invisible road to the sky. At a burning island, Blackbeard defeats Bonney and abandons her to be captured by Akainu. At Marie Jois, Doflamingo tells a government official that he seemingly killed Moria while in Marineford. However, Doflamingo does not care about the World Government's powers, as he is still a pirate. On Birdie Kingdom, Chopper, ashamed for returning too soon, dons a disguise. After being allowed to stay on the island to study the local medical plants, Chopper makes a tearful vow to Luffy that he will train intensively.
