"A Place to Return To" (帰るべき場所, Kaerubeki Basho) is episode 112 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.

Synopsis

As Sakura heals Ino's wounds, Shizune and Hinata tend to Yūkimaru, whose Chakra Pathway System has been severely disrupted, causing him to lose the power over the Three-Tails permanently. Katsuyu, using her Slug Great Division to have one body in Tsunade's office and the other at the Orochimaru Search Team's hideout, relays Tsunade's orders that they are to return to Konoha the following morning as she sends an Anbu team to relieve them. As Yūkimaru sleeps that night, he has a vision of Guren being rescued by Gozu; during his time as one of Orochimaru's failed experiments, the sannin had left him to die until Guren had given him a ladle of water, hence explaining his loyalty and gratefulness towards her. In the middle of the night, Yūkimaru gets up and leaves the hideout in order to be with them. Naruto wakes up to see Yūkimaru gone and chases after him, while Yamato and Kakashi decide not to follow him. Naruto spots Guren's crystallised camellia and realises that there are no cracks in it, meaning that Guren is alive. Knowing that Yūkimaru is with her, Naruto uncharacteristically voices his opinion towards the team that they have no need to find Yūkimaru as he is fine; Shino and Kakashi add that Yūkimaru's importance to Konoha has been dissolved after he lost his ability to control the Three-Tails and that it is not their job to go after runaways.

Kabuto returns back home, where he tells Orochimaru that Guren has been killed and that Yūkimaru has lost his powers, apologising for not securing the Three-Tails. As Orochimaru begins to cough relentlessly, Kabuto rushes off to retrieve his medicine while musing that Orochimaru's current host has reached its limits; Orochimaru smiles as he relishes the thought of finally being able to take over Sasuke's body. Meanwhile, Deidara overhears the Anbu mentioning that the mist caused by the Three-Tails can induce hallucinations. Thanking them for the tip, he proceeds to kill them all with his Explosive Clay. He then flies over the lake on his clay bird while dropping his detonating clay spiders into the lake to disrupt and summon the tailed beast. As the Three-Tails emerges, Deidara tasks Tobi with the duty of acquiring it, which Tobi is unable to do. As Tobi is taken underwater by Deidara, Deidara uses his C1 to flip the turtle on its back and knock it out. Having defeated the turtle, Deidara uses two clay birds and ropes to tow the tailed beast back to the Akatsuki's hideout.
