The argument and logic is the exact same so you can just mirror your analysis. It makes perfect sense if we just imagine things to make it fit... sorry I mean if we look at the subtext.
As for me I just think Oda heavily dropped the ball with her. Her becoming king is just pulled out of nowhere for a character that spend the entire last 4 years doing absolutely nothing. I've never been on the boat about her joining but even I'm just massively frustrated with Oda not even giving her like a panel where she evacuates people from flames or really anything to make her succession as king of Zou connect.
Her defiant stare against Perosperos to end just in her lying on the floor the entire raid feels like a complete letdown when you think about how other characters like Conis/Aisha, the multitude of Gladiators, Chimney, etc etc have been treated. It strikes me like Oda just forgot about her.
Pedro's will right now just seems like a thing Oda decided to delay on clarifying and it's possibly going to be dragged into the finale which just seems kinda stupid to me. But we'll see.
In my mind stuff like that should have just been maybe answered by now if we're considering the guy wants to finish in 3 years.
As for stowaway memes I get why people are hoping for that from a fan perspective but from an actual writing perspective that would be the biggest flub for wants to end in 3 years man. Cause you're not going to convince me that's a joining that's worthy of a strawhat and wouldn't force Oda to actually put some work into her in the future.
