One Piece Episode 974 Spoilers
In episode 973, while Orochi refuses Oden’s proposal, Kaido accepts it. And that is how Oden’s hour in the pot begins. He grabs a wooden plank and orders his retainers to stand on it. As the clock ticks on, people start to find the spectacle boring. Shinobu, who is there as well, lashes out against one of the spectators and then reveals the sacrifice Oden has made for the country and its people. She was there when he stormed Orochi’s castle and dueled Kaido. He discovered that Orochi had plans to give hundreds of citizens to Kaido. Knowing the horrible fate that they and the others who would follow them would face, Oden reluctantly accepted Orochi’s proposal.
So, he danced every week for the next five years, keeping hundreds of people safe with each dance. Orochi promised him that he and Kaido would leave after five years, and Oden had no choice but to believe him. The people, who gathered to watch Oden and his retainers die, are stunned after hearing what Shinobu has to say. They realize that the daimyo they mocked as the “silly lord” was protecting them all along. In episode 974, Oden might ask his retainers to open up their country. As the last act of defiance against Orochi and Kaido, he will likely ensure the safety of his retainers before Orochi or Kaido kills him.
