Chapter 1086 recap

One Piece Chapter 1086 began immediately after the Reverie had concluded before news of Cobra’s death and Vivi’s disappearance was spread. As people are shown looking for the pair, it’s revealed that Vivi, Wapol, Sabo, and Jewelry Bonney are all stowaways on various ships. This allows them to escape Mariejois without capture.

The focus then shifts to the Gorosei, who are discussing Sabo and the Egghead situation when Imu contacts them. He tells them to test Vegapunk’s new weapon on the Lulusia Kingdom, which the Gorosei say they will take care of. Each of the Gorosei’s names and Warrior God titles are then revealed, with Imu’s final request being to bring him Vivi Nefertari. Meanwhile, Sakazuki is mobilizing the Seraphims based on Crocodile, Gecko Moria, and Donquixote Doflamingo.

The issue then returns to the series’ present day, where Sabo explains how he escaped Lulusia safely. Emporio Ivankov then asserts that the Imu Sabo saw is Saint Imu of House Nerona, one of the 20 first Celestial Dragons, and that they’re immortal due to the Op-Op Fruit S Perpetual Youth Surgery. Finally, the issue ends with the revelation that Donquixote Mjosgard has been executed by the Holy Knights’ leader and former King of God Valley, Saint Figarland Garling.


What to expect (speculative)

With the Reverie flashback now officially concluded, One Piece Chapter 1087 could truly go anywhere as it returns readers to the contemporary series. However, Egghead Island stands out as the most likely option, with fans having last been there quite some time ago. Likewise, all the necessary context of why the Egghead Incident is so momentous has been established, making it the perfect time to see the event through.

Other options for One Piece Chapter 1087’s focus include Hachinosu Island, where the conflict between SWORD and the Blackbeard Pirates could be given additional focus. With Kuzan and Garp’s fight likely to continue, it would certainly be an engaging focus for fans. Likewise, either Hachinosu or Egghead are the current most likely options considering where the series is currently following the Reverie flashback’s conclusion.
