The Naraka Path captures Konohamaru. It asks where Naruto is but he refuses to answer, instead taking the Pain's preoccupation with his interrogation to hit him with the Rasengan that Naruto taught him. Meanwhile, Tsunade recognises the Deva Path as Yahiko. It tries to convince her that protecting Naruto is only preventing world peace. She does not tell him where he is, but adds that Naruto doesn't need protection. Elsewhere, Inoichi and Shizune theorise that a master Pain conciseness is controlling the Six Paths of Pain from some remote location. Before they can go looking for whoever this is, Shizune is captured by the Human Path. It reads her mind and learns that Naruto is at Mount Myōboku.
