So during the conversation with the Gorosei, they make mention that in a battle involving Big Mom and Kaido, death could easily come for anyone.
What’s interesting to note here, is they also say that it makes it the perfect “Cover up” to eliminate inconveniences. Now at first glance, it seems they could be talking about Robin, but when you think about it, that doesn’t make any sense. First and foremost, they are expecting her to be in custody. Their orders were to capture her, not kill her. Not to mention, they don’t need to “cover up” killing a pirate. They literally issue bounties, giving anyone a free pass to kill the person, and collect on their head.
The only time they would want to cover up killing someone, is if it was either an innocent civilian, or one of their own. The only one who fits this bill, would be X-Drake. CP0 knows Drake is undercover and would prefer if a third party Marine group they weren’t aware of to be off the board, as it would create complications in their tenuous relationship with Navy proper. CP-0 has already attacked him. This could also be a clue as to what X-Drake is searching for on Wano. Whatever it is, the Gorosei might not want him to find it.
Other than Drake, it could also be Who’s Who, who they had as the one death they need to ensure during the chaos. They were also hoping Jinbe would eliminate him for them.
What do you think?
