Long Summary

The people in Sabaody Archipelago are losing their patience towards the cut transmission. At the same time, the Worst Generation notice the plan of the Marines with Trafalgar Law and his crew departing with Basil Hawkins predicting "Death" with his tarot cards. Eustass Kid is also seen with his crew with him commenting on how the show was over. Meanwhile Akainu uses his Ryūsei Kazan to send magma punches to melt the ice, which also makes the melted ice become boiling water. The survivors try to escape by getting on ice, but the cannons on the encircling walls bombard the area, while Pacifistas block their path of escape. Whitebeard uses a quake punch on the walls, but the walls are capable to resist. Akainu tries to finish them as soon as possible, setting the Moby Dick on fire, completely destroying it. The Whitebeard Pirates mourn at its loss. Koby wonders what happens within the wall, and Helmeppo assures him that the Pirates are being destroyed, much to Koby's shock. Sengoku then orders for the immediate execution of Ace shocking everybody, much to Gecko Moria's delight and the despair of the Pirates, who know that if they try to approach, they will be killed. Luffy decided to move forward and rescue Ace, prompting the Whitebeard Pirates to follow him. Ivankov yells about how they will be destroyed if they attempt to move towards the only path possible, but the pirates keep moving. Luffy and the pirates are held back by the massive barrage of cannonballs, but Luffy keeps moving forward and is bombarded and pushed into the water, much to Ace's worry. Sengoku orders to carry the execution. When everything seemed lost, Little Oars Jr. regains consciousness, much to the pirates delight. Squard is given his weapon back by his crew and Jinbe saves Luffy. The Marines soon shot Oars in the hopes to bring him down as he's weakened, and Luffy desperately asks Jinbe to aid him. Watching how strong he is, Kizaru decides that he will take care of Oars. Before he can do it, Jinbe uses his technique to push Luffy over the walls. Luffy lands in the plaza standing right in front of the three admirals. They then comment and commend his strength and tenacity, leaving everybody stunned. However, the admirals ask how will Luffy fight them. Watching Luffy, Whitebeard soon orders Oars and Jozu to prepare their trump card and states that they are going to charge. Meanwhile, Luffy is launched on a broken mast at the three admirals, which is frozen by Aokiji. Luffy shatters it with his Stamp Gatling, sending the shards towards the admirals.
