Does anyone else think Drake could be an ally of Kaido? At the time it seemed he was trying to position himself as an enemy of Kaido. That of course remains a reasonable expectation. But based on what we know now, couldn't it be possible that he was hoping to form an alliance with the Yonkou? We know now that you simply do not request an audience with one of the Yonkou, not if your a New World rookie, like Drake was at the time. What if by ceasing one of Kaido's islands, Drake wanted to prove himself a worthy ally, and strong enough for Kaido's crew? What better way would there be to do this? I think it would be more interesting if Drake ended up as an enemy this arc, a subordinate of Kaido.

I see Kaidou more as a long term enemy. Would be a shame for arguably the most mysterious living character in One Piece to be the first emperor to go down.
Logically, I'd go with Big Mom. Hints were given that her forces are not in best shape. I mean a "rookie" is sinking her allied ships and there seems to be a shortage of funds. By the looks of it, her most important goal is to get more candy and stuff herself with it (or people if there's no candy). On the other hand Kaidou is working actively to make his battle force stronger and Blackbeard is on a devil fruit hunt, which means he's taking out enemies with strong devil fruits at the same time. Only mystery here is Shanks, but I don't think he's the alcohol version of Big Mom. I doubt he'd be partying while Blackbeard is running wild.

And that's why we may see her being in a worse situation[power wise]. If she took Beries instead of candy, there might be enough funds for a bigger fleet, that doesn't turn herself and her crew any weaker though. Remember how one of her man came back from destroying a country?

Mysterious has never meant much in One Piece. Oda loves shadowy, mysterious villains, and has the habit of obscuring their face when they do appear. Look at how he handled CC, Gekko Moriah, and Crocodile too. He loves introducing characters a long time before they actually appear. Jinbe was first mentioned in chapter 69. I'm not sure why he thinks it would suddenly matter that Kaido was somehow mysterious. That actually could be a clue he is the next big boss. We have been learning about his operation the last few chapters, and his connection to Dofla. All indications are that he is next, and Mam is being saved for later.Quote:
I don't think Law lied to Smoker . He's clever enough to see the connection Smoker has with the SH's
edit: You had to see it coming.
The order of the posts here make me confused, what's going on?
As far as the plot goes, both could easily fall at the same time.

I don't think Law lied . He knows that sooner or later DoFlamigo will figure out his plan so i think he said that maybe to receive a back up from him? Anything is possible
I'm just describing things how I see them. Maybe she is strengthening her crew, but based on what we've seen so far, her crew goes around collecting candy-tax and destroying islands that can't meat demands. When I see any indiciation that she's actually doing something to boost her power, I'll be convinced.
