Kakashi ties Sasuke to a tree to talk to him. Kakashi advises Sasuke to abandon his quest for revenge against Itachi. Sasuke replies that Kakashi doesn’t know what he’s been through, suggesting that he kill everyone Kakashi loves. But Kakashi points out that everyone he loves is already dead. However, both he and Sasuke have found friends in Team 7, and they would do well to be more appreciative of what they still have than what they have lost. Kakashi leaves him to think about it, and he struggles to forget about Itachi. Before he can come to any conclusion, he is attacked by the Sound Four. He quickly repels their attack.
