What to expect in One Piece Chapter 1073 (speculative)

One Piece Chapter 1073 will most likely begin with Stussy betraying Kaku and Rob Lucci. Fans will most likely see her decide or reveal which side she’s on with no space for misunderstanding. Most fans believe she will be shown to be on Dr. Vegapunk’s side, if not Dr. Vegapunk’s mysterious ally.

The problem will most likely return to Bonney and Dr. Vegapunk, rapidly resolving their present difficulty and returning to whatever Bonney learnt from the energy later. If this path is pursued, Dr. Vegapunk and Bonney will most likely reunite with the other Straw Hats and prepare to depart Egghead Island.

While they are unlikely to depart in One Piece Chapter 1073, the issue is expected to conclude with the whole gang meeting at the Thousand Sunny. The Straw Hats will uncover Stussy’s actual identity here, which will likely spark a fast but spirited argument about whether or not they can trust her as the chapter draws to a conclusion.


Chapter 1072 recap

Chapter 1072 began with an emphasis on Dr. Vegapunk and Bonney, who were still playing cat and mouse at the start of the issue. However, Bonney rapidly gained the upper hand, transforming Dr. Vegapunk into a baby version of himself. She then discovered a secret door with a paw-print emblem on it, within which she discovered a ball of energy from her father Bartholomew Kuma’s Paw-Paw Fruit.

The real Kuma then attempted to ascend the Red Line at the same time as conversation from Bonney and Dr. Vegapunk and a flashback from the latter played out. As Bonney reaches out to absorb it, it is revealed that this ball of energy contains Kuma’s memories. The episode then shifted to the Lab Stratum, where the Seraphim and CP0 attacked the structure as Kaku and Zoro battled.

However, Kaku and Zoro’s battle was cut short when Stussy seemed to betray her CP0 colleagues by putting Kaku to sleep and requesting Lucci to do the same. Shortly later, it was revealed that Stussy was a clone of a previous Rocks Pirates member known as Miss Buckingham Stussy.
