Deidara takes Gaara’s exhausted body and flies away with it. Kankuro follows him, while the rest of the Hidden Sand Village forces regroup and send word of what happened to the Hidden Leaf. Shortly after Deidara reunites with Sasori, they encounter Kankuro, who is determined to save his brother. He summons his three puppets, but Sasori easily blocks his first attack. In Leaf, Naruto argues with Tsunade over which mission the re-formed Team 7 will go on. When they learn of Gaara’s kidnapping, Tsunade immediately dispatches them to the Village of Hidden Sand to help rescue Kazekage.
