Imagining a yeti
Zoro and Brook are running through the snow with Sanji as they are trying to figure out how they got the bumps on their heads. Back when they had found the giant footprints in the snow, they had become distracted from finding the samurai to hopefully find the yeti. As they followed the giant prints, they led to a cliff. This had been a trap, and they were shot at my the Yeti Cool Brothers with they powerful sleeping gas. The trio was sent down the cliff as the Yeti Cool Brothers destroyed the ledge from under them. Sanji and Brook are already asleep, and Zoro notices they're falling into a plate of ice spikes. Zoro saves them by slicing the spiked bed and allowing them to land in safety. Zoro quickly falls prey to the gas, and the Yeti Cool Brother's then report their death.
As the henchmen of Caesar Clown arrive for their bodies, Sanji wakes up and knocks them unconscious. Though, he realizes he needs to be careful with Nami's body. He then wakes up Zoro and Brook with kicks to the head.
Sanji finds the samurai frozen
They are now wandering the snowy icecaps and discover the samurai has been frozen under their feet. He's complaining of how he suddenly collapsed and how he isn't cold. Seems he couldn't use his powers to make himself some winter clothes. Zoro realizes that the samurai's torso must have fallen in the nearby lake and could be eaten by sharks if they down hurry. As they are running to the lake, they are met by the gang of Brownbeard's centaurs. They seems to be running scared for something, and Zoro notices a mountain that he didn't remember seeing by the lake.
Caesar brags of his creation
In Caesar Clown's Lab, Caesar is bragging about his monster Smiley. After he caused the mass destruction on Punk Hazard that killed nearly everyone, he returned a year later not to purify the poison gas. He had condensed it to create Smiley. Monet sits quietly as she writes.
Back in the destroyed lab with the kids, Nami doesn't want to leave the children behind. They know they have to capture Caesar as part of the alliance, but Luffy has a brilliant plan on how to get to Caesar's lab fast.
Tashigi can't control Smoker's powers
Outside the labs, Smoker, in Tashigi's body, is fighting as the G-5 take over Caesar's ship. Tashigi is trying to fight, but she can't control Smoker's powers. The G-5 try breaking into the labs but can't get through the doors. Smoker only wishes he had his own body to use his powers to break inside.
At the back of the labs, Trafalgar Law is using his powers to teleport. Chopper is amazed by Law's abilities, and Law tells him the plan is for him to distract Monet so Chopper can find what he needs. Chopper inquires why Law doesn't just capture Caesar himself so they can have as much time as they want, but he tells him that he has a problem that prevents him from attacking Caesar.
Luffy boldly challenges Caesar
As Law is noticing the nearby fighting between the Navy and Caesar's centaurs, the G-5 notice something flying toward the fight. It's Luffy flying in with Franky and Robin on his back. Robin lands in on her wings as the others crash land. Smoker and Tashigi are shocked to see them arrive, and Luffy shouts out for Caesar to show himself so he can kidnap him. Robin reminds Luffy that part was a secret. Law looks on angry at Luffy's sudden and bold action to take on everyone.
