One Piece - Tell No Tales / The Pirates are Coming

The third and fourth episodes of Netflix's One Piece center around our trio making landfall in the port of Syrup Village after their existing boat begins to sink. The episodes introduce an important new character in Usopp (Jacob Romero) who apparently has lived on the streets since his mother died and is a general menace in his constant crying wolf of arriving pirates to the point when pirates do arrive at the port no one will believe him. However, it's not the Straw Pirates Usopp is afraid of but the group led by Kuro (Alexander Maniatis) which is hiding as the wait staff of his friend Kaya (Celeste Loots) planning to kill her on her next birthday and steal her wealth. Given the situation even Nami (Emily Rudd) decides it would be in bad taste to steal from Kaya and instead, surprisingly for her, she makes a new friend.

By the end o the episode the Straw Hat Pirates will have defeated another pirate crew, making new enemies, saved Kaya (getting them a new ship fitting of their adventures in the bargain), and picked up another member of the crew in Usopp. Along with flashbacks to Usopp's childhood we also get more information from Zoro's (Mackenyu) past revealing a childhood rivalry central to him becoming the world's greatest swordsman. "The Pirates are Coming" is especially notable for the action between our heroes and the Black Cat Pirates as well as Koby (Morgan Davies) continuing to prove himself to Marine Vice Admiral Garp (Vincent Regan) who apparently has a very important connection to our would-be pirate king Monkey D. Luffy (IƱaki Godoy).
