im sorry...but i cant understand some guys really....
1. guys who would jump to the conclusion that "smoker is dead" are the same guys who say "no, smoker wont be a strawhat because he is luffy's garp"...if the dude is such an important character in your eyes why would for a second you will think he will be killed??? Oda killed only 2 main characters in the story for almost 2 decades of one piece and thats just because so the story can move forward.
2. smfh and LMFAO at the same time at guys who are still in denial...."law is a good guy becoz he saved luffy and i think he got some good reason for what he is doing right now"....wtf...law is clearly the bad guy in this arc (not saying law is evil but he is the villain in this arc)
3. law-smoker was prolly shown to: 1. show how strong luffy's enemy would be......2. another chance for smoker to be saved from death by strawhats.
4. it will be luffy-smoker team up vs law and M...im saying this long ago and nobody's listening...smfh
5. ok. laugh at me for this, but i can really see that smoker and tashigi will sooner or later join the strawhat crew.
It's interesting that in chapter 660 Law remarked rather snidely that "forging emergency signals is a speciality of [the] marines" and in this chapter he retorts to Smoker "What are you marines scheming?". I would hedge a bet that Law and his crew got captured, and the only Law would be allowed to save their lives is if he did nefarious deeds for some shadowy government/marine figures. It would run with the marines being given "unforeseen power" too ( said in chapter 650). I just can't imagine (all) his crew would've been killed considering how unique some of them are and he had a damn cool submarine.
Anyway, great chapter, although somewhat annoying that it ended on a cliffhanger and next week's break is like a double cliffhanger.
Smokers style was so brute here, just running straight in. The feints were nice till it started to look like his only move and smoke gatling? Okaaaay, has he missed Luffy that much?
This is the third Shichibukai who has gotten the best of him and shouldn't he have his reflex logia activation down by now & just left Law with a box of smoke? Crocodile dealt with Doflamingos decapitation attempt, I know he wasn't in Laws Room but I feel the situations are relatable, if you depend on your logia in the New World you can't still sweat reflex transforming.
somebody already mentioned im sure but.. M looks like Hawkins DF transformation..
I dont think smoker's gonna die here.. I think its also clear now to all the people claiming LAW got luffy's heart..
we saw what happened to Smoker when Law took his heart..
Luffy seems happy to see LAW.. (maybe to thank him)
Law's crew could be undergoing an operation which will improve their abilities..
Im still not convinced LAW is a bad guy.. he's just a pirate..
Law did try to avoid a fight with smoker.. smoker as a marine did his duties..
it will be interesting to see what will happen nxt chapter..
I predict that as usual luffy will be surprised to see smoker.. but will be even more shocked to see him on the floor..
Something tells that Smoker has come to his end.I thought about it while looking at the bottom of this page as Tashigi reminding herself about what Smoker told her about pirates.Since Tashigi could play an important role in Zoro's story development and seeing how weak she still is now,something bad or meaningful needs to happen to someone she is close to in order to give her the will to get stronger.And i fear that it could means Smoker's death.
I love the Minochihuahua xD
Poor Tashigi :/ She constantly gets her ass kicked. ...attacking Law was pretty stupid though -.-
Is Law a ninja? o.o Or maybe Oda is making a Naruto tribute xD
The Harpy has one of the best character designs I ever saw.
Mone for Nakama!
I still don't know how the 'Mes' technique works, did Law switch his hand with that rock? Did he shoot that little room cube into Smoker chest? It looks like something he could do from the very beginning :/ Smoker wasn't immobilised. Also, he didn't really need to 'solidify' to destroy that rock. It looks like simple mistake on Smoker's part :/
Edit: I forgot about Law's remark 'What you Marines are scheming?' Could it be possible that what he's doing on the island is a counter-measure to some World Government plan? o.o

Although I am not taking any sides since I can't decide on a theory due to the number of possibilities, I say he's definitely not the evil character even pretty similar to Smoker by character, at the core at least. However, this isn't necessarily true for his state so , e.g., I can imagine him getting rid of his crew or even killing his crew, but at the same time I can also imagine him hiding, protecting or losing his crew, etc.
Even if Luffy is going to fight him and M it doesn't necessarily mean he's definitely on the bad side, the context is very important.

Proof that Smoker could die as "important character" is Ace who was constructed as "important character" for the purpose of dieing in a Grand Battle which lead to Luffy's growth etc. And IMHO, even if Oda made it look like that Smoker would be Luffy's Garp, he still could lure us into a trap. As a matter of fact, we simply don't know if Oda decided some time when he created a character whether or not he'll show him dieing.
On the other hand, being "knocked out" could still be a result from the stress of the heart removal - much like the shadow extraction Moriah showed. Smoker could wake up in three days, while Luffy and his crew already have left PH and went for the next island...
