So the fandom seems to be in an uproar after last chapter. In that chapter law goes to find his crew only to be baited by Hawkins. Hawkins has used his power on Laws crew making them linked to him. So at the point its obvious that Law can't outright kill Hawkins due to the nature of Hawkins fruit.
But here's the thing, why would he need to do this to win the fight? In fact when has he ever outright tried to damage someone (bar doflamingo) to win a fight? Even with vergo who beat him to a pulp his initial attack that took him down didn't harm him. It was the explosion that killed him.
So I ask again why is everyone so worried about this situation? I mean one of the main parts of laws fighting style revolves on cutting people without harming them.. I believe Law > Hawkins (mid diff max if they were to both go all out) easily.
I feel that the reason he's doing all of this to law, taking precautions by making sure bepo is still hidden indicates that Hawkins himself doesn't believe he could win an all out fight. Or perhaps he just wants to out smart Law. But I don't see why he would go out of his way to this extent unless there's some backstory between the two that we don't know about.
Anyways I'm not too worried about Laws situation aside from the fact that bepo is still missing. I honestly think Hawkins knows about laws shambles ability and stuff like counter shock but perhaps he doesn't know about laws sword style because i can't see why he think this would stop law from attacking him (i mean he showed law that if he inflictwd damage unto Hawkins body the others would take damage).
What is stopping law from just cutting all of his limbs apart and then repairing his friends. I think what's most interesting (and we don't know the details yet) is how this "contract" like ability of Hawkins works. I mean i guess Hawkins could say he'll continuously kill himself to kill laws crew. How do you guys think this ability works? I mean i remember way back when people insisted that law would betray luffy. Do you think Law would betray luffy/alliance to save his crew from Hawkins ability? And also who do you think would win the fight (what diff) and why?
