Since they need the second scroll and Kabuto is now alone, Sasuke thinks that defeating him is Team 7’s best chance of successfully completing the second stage of the exam. Since Sasuke has done the courtesy of explaining his intentions first instead of attacking immediately, Kabuto offers them an alternative. He explains that the other teams who complete the stage are heading toward the building in the center of the Forest of Death with a false sense of security and are tired after four days in the forest. Thus, if Sasuke and his team wait outside the building, they may well pick up the scroll from one of the opposing teams. Kabuto then accompanies them to the building, but they discover that they have been caught in genjutsu, which means that they have fallen prey to another team that had the same idea.
