Chapter 1073: “Miss Buckingham Stussy”.
In the cover, we see Vegapunk creating peaceful inventions (like tanks that shoot out flowers) while Caesar, Judge and Queen look at him disgusted.
Chapter starts where last one ended. Lucci attacks Stussy but he misses because he’s attacking an illusion. Stussy uses a variation of Kami-e (Paper Art) technique called “Remaining Body”. While she distracts Lucci with the illusion, Stussy uses a lipstick with Kairouseki inside to weaken Lucci (she uses it to touch Lucci, like Smoker uses his Jitte). Then Stussy bites Lucci and he falls asleep like Kaku.
We discover that mysterious person with whom Vegapunk spoke was Stussy, and that it wasn’t Vegapunk’s intention that she became CPO member.
Stussy can’t overwrite Lucci’s order to stop the Seraphim, because she’s at the same level as Lucci in the “authority hierarchy”.
Lilith and Edison came out of the “Labo”. S-Hawk attacks Lilith before she can give the order to stop, but Zoro stops it.
Zoro fights against S-Hawk during some panels (no new attacks, only one big clash). S-Hawk is in shock facing Zoro’s strength.
S-Shark attacks Edison as he’s giving the order to stop, but Sanji saves him. Then Edison managed to give the order and all Seraphim stop.
Luffy and Chopper are running around the “Labo” trying to find for the real Vegapunk, because he and Bonney disappeared (we don’t see anything about real Vegapunk and Bonney in this chapter).
Cut to Sphinx Island. It’s revealed that the Marines came to Sphinx Island while Marco was away in Wano Kuni. But Weevil arrived and protected the village. However, Weevil was captured by Ryokugyu. Now Marco is with Miss Bakkin. She asks Marco to bring back her son and to give her Shirohige’s inheritance.
Marco: “I appreciate you saving the village but…”
Miss Bakkin: “You doubt about my son’s lineage? Then just ask Vegapunk!!”
Cut to the sea, to Kizaru’s ship.
Kizaru brings some snacks and drink to an old man in the ship. Before that, Marines tested the food to find if it was poisoned. Kizaru talks with that man.
Kizaru: “Have vou ever met Vegapunk?”
Old man: “Yes, just once in the past… ”
We discover that the old man is one member of the Gorosei. Specifically, he’s the one with a scar on the left side of his face and the gray dreadlocks.
And we discover his name: World Highest Authority – Gorosei. Saint Jegarcia Saturn.
Saturn: “I regret that it has come to this!!”
