Gomorrah got back up and started rampaging once again, but after the blow towards his eye retina, he became blind. Chopper tells everyone that Gomorrah had made a promise to Sodom, that he would take them to the courtyard. Gomorrah heads to a dead end is about to crash, but Zoro and Sanji break through the wall and reach the courtyard. While Spandam is talking to himself, a marine barges in, nearly making Spandam order the Buster Call. Spandam finally finds out that his Den Den Mushi is not connected, and that there is a emergency on Enies Lobby. Spandam begins bragging to Robin about how weak the Straw Hat Pirates are.
