Most of these events didn't happen in the manga. This episode marks the end of the Rainbow Mist filler arc. The only part of the story that is canon is at the very end.
Points of Interest
Zoro now wants to try and cut electricity. It's Robin who exposes the electric armor's real weakness.
Luffy quickly defeats Wetton's flame armor.
Robin looks in the Rainbow Mist book for answers on how to escape, but the end of the book is to be continued in the next volume that they don't have. At the end of the episode the author of the book was revealed to be Rapa Nui, after his escape from the Rainbow Mist. The second volume had been left in Alabasta.
The going Merry's mast, figurehead, and side are severely damaged upon escape. This damage never occurred during the manga's story.
Nami viciously attacks Sanji because the treasure they had was lost upon their escape. He just happened to be her target by chance.
The Marines that were casing the crew at the beginning of this arc turn out to be the children that stayed behind in Ape's Concert. They escaped, but ended up fifty years in the past.
Though Rapa Nui says it took longer for them to reach a high enough rank. It's never explained why he never called or wrote for fifty years.
He did somehow manage to find the time to write ten volumes of the Rainbow Mist novels, but Henzo never heard of or bothered to read them.
In the manga the St. Bliss nearly strikes the Going Merry some time after the crew has left Alabasta.
