After suppressing the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, Sakura heals Naruto’s wounds. She asks Yamato if it is possible to learn the Element of Wood, hoping to be more useful to Naruto, to which Yamato says no. Yamato adds that it doesn’t matter given her feelings. Without letting Yamato finish his sentence, Naruto regains consciousness. He asks about how Sakura got these wounds, and noticing that Saya isn’t there, suggests that he did it. Meanwhile, Orochimaru, surprised by Saya’s statement that he speaks for Danzo, agrees to listen to him. However, he insists that Sai speak in person, destroying his inky clone. Sai reaches for his backpack, but Kabuto knocks him to the ground, fearing that he will pull out a weapon. Orochimaru discovers what Sai was looking for in his bag and tells Kabuto to free him. Afterwards, Sai leaves with them.
