Despite the poisoned blade in her body passing through, Sakure was able to hold her sword to prevent Sasori from retreating. She asks Chiyo to take the last antidote as she was also hurt earlier, but ignoring her Chiyo injects the antidote into Sakura’s place herself. Chiyo falls to the ground and Sasori is suspended from her sword, ready to finish her off. Chiyo uses the Mother and Father puppets to pierce his core, the only human part he retained while transforming himself into the puppet necessary to use the chakra. Chiyo begins to treat Sakura, and Sasori notes that her wounds are too serious. In response, Chiyo declares that she is not treating Sakura, but bringing her back to life with a technique she developed to breathe life into Sasori’s Mother and Father puppets, which he no longer needs.
