After hearing the truth, Wano’s people ask Orichi to stop the execution, but he refuses to do so. Nine Scabbards apologize for insulting him. Oden tells them to hang as he wants them to open up the country. He reveals that Kozuki Clan closed Wano to the world to prevent from great external power. Oden also reveals that the country must be prepared to welcome figure who would appear after 800 years span so they can work with them.
After that, everyone begins to cheer him, and he manages to survive one hour ( it reveals who strong he was ), but Orochi changes the execution to shooting. Just after that, Oden throughs his retainers to run towards the castle. All of them ran with their all will, and on the other hand, Kaido shoots Oden.
