Nami finally gets Lola off of her tail by claiming to be a cross dresser. She, Usopp, and Chopper hide from Absalom inside of Kumashi, and overhear Absalom, Hildon, and Perona talking about being summoned by Moriah. From within his chambers, Gekko Moriah himself reveals to Luffy that he will use his strength to become the Pirate King. Outside, Franky gets the upper hand against Tararan, but he and Robin are immobilized by his underlings, the Spider Mice. Brook, however, slices through the spider-monkey before he realizes it.
