Because Chiyo uses a life transfer technique while Sakura was still alive, Chiyo does not die because of her rescue. Sasori is disappointed that he couldn’t kill anyone and regrets his impending death, blaming it on his failure to fully transform into a puppet. Aware that life is slowly leaving Sasori, he decides to do something “useless” and, as a reward for his survival, he informs Sakura of his spy infiltrated by Orochimaru, whom he has arranged to meet in ten days at the Tenchi Bridge. After he dies in the arms of the Mother and Father puppets, Chiyo makes the assumption that Sasori did not dodge her final attack. While under the influence of poison, she falls to the ground, but refuses Sakura’s offer to return to the Hidden Sand, stating that she has things to do. Meanwhile, Naruto and Kakashi continue to follow Deidara. Having prepared his Mangekyo Sharingan, Kakashi commands Naruto to begin.
