Ah, new spoilers, fresh from a break! Credit goes to Redon and co. from AP for the info:

-Chapter title is "Samurai". Ministory has Capone's crew still in Dressrosa.

-The chapter begins with a flashback. Tengu provides the Straw-Hats with armor, though Zoro declines to wear any. Franky is still having the boats repaired, and Usopp says everyone should meet up at the Sunny and sail to the promised port...

-Meanwhile, Holdem of Kaidou's headliners is investigating the theft of food from the farms, and is interrogating the villagers. Kinemon's wife Tsuru tries to distract the headliner by leading him astray, as she knows that the stolen food will be used as provisions for the rebel army. However, the other villagers speak up instead, claiming responsibility for the thefts.....

-Back to the Straw-Hats, Robin reveals that, according to Orochi, the key to entering Onigashima is "winter". Nami has a strategy meeting with the minks, as they want to strike at a night with a full moon in order to utilize their sulong forms. Luffy is concerned about Jinbei, wondering if he safely escaped from Big Mom, and if so, if he'll arrive at Wano on time. It's at this point that the situation suddenly takes a turn for the worse: The Hundred Beast Pirates ambushes the alliance, blowing up the Sunny's hiding spot, all the other ships, and the bridges connecting their meeting locations!!! Naturally, this was a result of Orochi being tipped off on the plan....!!!

-We briefly return to the present, where Kinemon's group resolve to carry out the plan, regardless of the setbacks. As they prepare to set sail, another flashback begins..... this one focusing on Kouzuki Oden. This flashback is set 39 years ago. As it turns out, the Kouzuki clan was the reason why Wano had its borders closed off in the first place! However, it has been said that its borders will open again once a world-shaking event occurs.....!!!!

We know everybody's fine, but it kinda sucks we'll have to wait for a whole flashback to end to find out how they survived. I hope Oden will live up to the hype at least.

Yeah, thanks Oda. I badly needed my refill.

Zoro's immediate response though, "ENMA"

They'll be destroying island with their petty bickering by the end of One Piece.

Agreed. I do hope Oda can use Zoro vs Sanji to defeat one of high-ranked Yonko Officer.

Seeing their fight makes me feel refreshed, wondering if there will be Sanji in Raid Suit vs Zoro with Enma.

Welp. Guess that's why everyone hadn't been able to make it there on time. Orochi had his lackeys sabotage everyone's means of getting to the meeting point. Who wants to bet he relied on CP-0 to get ahold of that intel? Then again, having a traitor in their ranks wouldn't have helped matters, either.

Holdem at least managed to make up for his track record since Luffy arriving in Bakura town. Despite being something of a punching bag and not all that bright, he's still a ruthless thug and a Headliner of the Beasts Pirates.

Hm, Luffy is thinking about Jinbei just before Orochi has the ships and bridges shelled..... coincidence? I think not!

And on the subject of "coincidences"... notice that this new flashback begins 39 years ago, which is just one year prior to the God Valley incident. Perhaps it will turn out that Oden is connected to that, as well....?

So Orochi actually didn't kill anybody (well, that much was obvious), he just destroyed all the ways they had to meet up at Tokage port.

I don't know if Oden is connected to the incident, but it's almost certain Rocks will show up in this flashback, perhaps incognito.

Paranoid bastard got smart. Yeah, destroying the bridges inconveniences everyone but he is the shogun and he can order them rebuilt once he's done partying.

Sanji better enjoy his bragging rights while he can, cause it will probably be the last time his bounty is higher than Zoro’s

I’m predicting a bounty somewhere between 800 million to 1 billion beli for Zoro after this arc. Sanji might go up to 500 mil.

Come to think of it, putting my earlier implications about Jinbei aside, rebuilding those bridges should be a cinch for Franky. Remember how quickly he built a bridge back in Thriller Bark (to the point that he spent more time on decorations than the actual bridge )? Orochi's countermeasures definitely won't be as effective as he thought....

I thought about that but he'd have to travel the whole country and that would take some time.

Every region can still go to the Flower Capital via undamaged bridges. (source: Orochi's map)
This change of plan will give us at least 1k additional warrior who are still imprisoned there.

Even more are possible. As we have Kuri people going through Kibi to reach the flower capital. have forces in Ringo and Udon to go to the flower capital. Afterswards we go through Hakumai for the port there.
So the alliance will travel through all of Wano, pickung up everyone who wants to fight (like the workers we have seen a few chapters ago.

The new size of the army could be unpredictable with the new development.

The Scabbard's ambush will fail, but we might not need it anymore if we outnumber them. As the retainers are pushed back to the shore, the sky ships cast the light of 9 shadows of the Straw Hats.
Backed up by the army Franky has imagined.
(+ some later additions via the secret entrance to Wano from Neko ect. for some quality too.)

Iím glad thereís some concern about Jinbe in this chapter. Our heroes could use his help at some point.
