Following Oden’s wish, all the Scabbards run towards Kuri without looking back. Shinobu asks Kinemon whether she can join the Scabbards, and he tells her she has to decide for herself.
Meanwhile, Kaido reaches Momonosuke and asks him his identity. He burns the entire castle as the people of Wano speculate a dark time is upon them.
Knowing that Scabbards are still breathing, Orochi gets unsettled. He asks for the search of every one of them. On the other hand, scabbards separate, and Kawamatsu takes Hiyori with him while Kinemon and Kanjuro with Momonosuke go into the future.

Quick Recap of One Piece Episode 974
Even though he’s dead, Kozuki Oden will remain in the hearts and minds of all people of Wano, friends and foes alike. The last episode was about his resolution and sacrifice. Let’s take a quick recap of it.
After hearing out Shinobu, the people of Wano realize how wrong they were about Kozuki Oden. They regret their behaviour and beg Orochi to spare Oden. However, Orochi pierces their chest with sharp arrows, killing them on the spot.
The retaliation stops, but people still show their gratitude to Oden for everything he went through for protecting the country.
Oden’s Last Words
After tossing Scabbards, a brief conversation between Oden and Kaido reveals that the latter killed Higurashi. Oden’s body is tattered, and he’s on his last stand. Kaido says he will put the final bullet to Oden’s head.
Oden tells him to get stronger as he will get challenged by solid individuals in the time to come. He takes a shot and goes down by uttering his famous catchphrase.
