Chiyo informs Sakura that Sasori is hiding inside of Hiruko, the puppet he uses as a shell. Sakura is sure that Chiyo, as Sasori’s grandmother, has important information about Sasori’s puppets, but they have been separated for too long to hope that things remain the same. They should also proceed with caution, since Sasori’s entire arsenal of weapons is probably covered in poison. Nevertheless, Chiyo is confident of a successful fight with him. At this time, Deidara informs Naruto and Kakashi that Sasori is stronger than he is and suggests they return to help their comrades. Sasori launches an attack, but Sakura manages to avoid it with unusual dexterity and destroy Hiruko.
