You no-good bikini bottom bastard!
A greedy, apathetic doctor who doesn’t care about anyone but themself? Impossible! Well, not today because we now know which Dr. Vegapunk is the traitor: York The Greedy. She wants to become a Celestial Dragon. Hmm… I guess that makes sense with her being “greedy” and all. Honesty, it doesn’t really matter who the traitor was, as long as it moves the story forward. Props to Oda for not dragging the mystery out too long. Just long enough for us to learn the truth along with OG Dr. Vegapunk.
I don’t think the mystery itself matters much anyway. It was simply a tool to breakup our heroic cast of characters and give reason to why the World Government’s now Vegapunk’s enemy. The real fun comes from what York has in store for everyone. What? You think her whole plan is just turning the Seraphim on her fellow Vegapunks? Nah! Her goal is to keep all the other Vegapunks on Egghead Island until the Navy shows up. Everything from the Seraphim, to shutting down the dome barrier, to kidnapping Vegapunk Stella is to ensure that happens. Did she secretly complete more Seraphim in case she needed them? Can she override the Mk. III Pacifistas? There’s so much bullsh*t York can throw at Team Luffy I’m excited to know what’s next.
