Honestly man, it's impossible for the raid to fail at this point.
I was the first to think that Kidd would use the Giant Sword to fight Kaido, but since CH. 1010 I realized plans were different for Oda.
Kidd won't fight Kaido again, even tho he has the gas for it, simply because it would be to embarassing for Luffy.
Otherwise it would've happened when Luffy was "dead".
My hope for Killer is to confront Apoo another time, at the end of the day he's the mf that snitched them... Hawkins was a (relevant) bitch in the process.
