Long Summary

Luffy and his allies take a short rest after their defeat of Minotaurus and try to figure out what to do next. That becomes quickly irrelevant when the floor breaks, dropping them and Minotaurus down to Level 4. In Level 4, a group of prisoners are shown carrying large, heavy pieces of lumber. One of the prisoners' attempts an escape by throwing his large piece at the guards. He then runs into and hits Daz Bonez (Mr. 1) on the head, causing him to bleed. Daz becomes angry, swings his lumber around and knocks the escaping prisoner into boiling blood. Meanwhile, Momonga prepares to take Boa Hancock to Marineford, but receives troubling news of a fight between two of the Four Emperors: Shanks and Kaidou. Momonga reflects on preparations for the upcoming war between Whitebeard and Marine Headquarters with the Shichibukai as their allies. He also states that the upcoming war will be remembered by the world regardless who wins.

Magellan and his subordinates are making preparations of their own in order to capture Luffy, Buggy, Galdino, and Bentham by splitting their forces to guard the stairs to the different levels. Meanwhile, Luffy presses on, smelling the scent of food in the kitchen. Buggy, intent on following Luffy in case there was booze in the kitchen, is stopped by Galdino because he is worried about running into Magellan. Luffy and Bentham defeat the oncoming onslaught of Impel Down guards with ease. The guards quickly report the casualties to Hannyabal who then decides to intercept the intruders himself. Magellan stops Luffy and Bentham from going any further by dropping himself in front of them and declaring that he's had enough of their rampage.
