The Hidden Leaf begins to recover. Naruto, Sakura and Kakashi, thinking of Tsunade, reunite with Inari and Tazuna, who have come to help rebuild the village and thereby pay off the debt they took in the Land of the Waves. As Naruto drew analogies that would keep these two from finding out what happened to Sasuke, he began to ponder how Sasuke relates to his new philosophy of pain, revenge, and peace. Thinking about Jiraiya and Nagato, he came to the point where he finally understood how Sasuke perceived cutting ties. Because of this, he now knows how to reassemble Team 7 back to its original composition and make his comrades happy. Meanwhile, Team Samui arrives at the Leaf to deliver a message to the Fourth Raikage. Danzo, the new Hokage, agrees with the Raikage’s decision and, in a pre-emptive move, orders the Hidden Leaf ninja to kill Sasuke at the first opportunity. Later, Kiba informs Team Kakashi of this.
