Although Yamato hopes to be able to convince the Sasori spy that he is the real Sasori, it is likely that his cover will be revealed at some point and they will have to capture the spy. As such, the next day they hone their teamwork in the context of the battle. Sai sacrifices Naruto without slowing down in order to successfully complete the mission. Naruto again compares him to Sasuke, saying that Sasuke would not abandon his teammate. Although Sai is skeptical of Naruto’s words, he merely reminds Naruto that his emotionlessness keeps him from thinking about anything but the success of the mission.
