Well, that was pretty much how we all expected it to go.
Issho going out of his way to help was interesting, even if he was caught doing it.
It's nice that all 7 subordinates are now as batshit as Luffy. They did all seem a bit too serious until now.
And of course, that ending.... The only instance I can think of where it's been very clearly hinted that something BIG is on the way is when Ace fought Blackbeard. So there's that to look forward to.
So, what did you think?
