"Akainu's Plot! Whitebeard Entrapped" is the 472nd episode of the One Piece anime.
As Squard stabs Whitebeard, the pirates and even marines in the war are shocked due to his betrayal. Squard says that he knows about Whitebeard's plot on giving the 43 captains under his command to save Ace and the Whitebeard Pirates. He reveals that Admiral Akainu told him that, and for his betrayal, the marines would leave the allies alone, as the Pacifista units advance over them, destroying everything in their path. As Sengoku's plan goes on, Admiral Aokiji freezes Buggy and his allies, to cut the broadcasting to the world. As an act of surprise, Whitebeard forgives Squard, even though he was a "foolish son". Whitebeard uses his powers to give a way out to his allies, and gives them the choice to stand up for what they believe in. As all the allies regain their will to fight, Squard falls to the ground, realizing that he was tricked, and Whitebeard heads off to battle.
