Painful Decision (苦渋の決断, Kujū no Ketsudan) is episode 201 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Sasuke and his team sneak around the samurai guarding the Kage Summit. Karin notices that the White Zetsu is missing. Meanwhile, outside, Tobi orders the Black Zetsu to begin with their plan. Sai tells Sakura about Naruto's feelings about her, and that the promise he made to her is the source of Naruto's suffering. On behalf of the rest of the Konoha 11, Shikamaru approaches Team 7 with plans to eliminate Sasuke before he can become more of a burden, and the possible cause of war between Konoha and Kumo. Crying, Sakura agrees and tells Shikamaru that she will tell Naruto herself. At the summit, Ao senses something wrong and uses his Byakugan to discover that Danzō is manipulatingMifune with his Sharingan. White Zetsu then appears before the Kage, and announces that Sasuke Uchiha is somewhere in the building. While Naruto thinks about Sasuke, Tobi appears behind him, and says that he wants to talk to him.
