The Sonic Four attack Sasuke again, this time with more success. Sasuke still retains the advantage. Meanwhile, Sakura thinks about Sasuke and wonders if it was a good idea to tell Naruto about the Cursed Seal that Sasuke received from Orochimaru, which he previously asked her not to do. Naruto assured her that Sasuke would never be tempted by Orochimaru, and a smile appeared on her face. Sasuke, however, is defeated by the Four of Sound. They tell him that he can never defeat them if he stays in Konoha, as only Orochimaru can give him true power.
