Deidara tells Team 7 that they are too late; Gaara is dead. Naruto, enraged, attacks them, but Deidara merely flies off with Gaara's body. Naruto pursues him to get back Gaara's body and Kakashi goes with him, instructing Chiyo and Sakura to keep Sasori busy until Team Guy returns. Team Guy, however, is preoccupied with fighting their own duplicates. Sakura is concerned about fighting Sasori by themselves, but Chiyo tells her not to worry. Sasori removes his Akatsuki cloak, revealing a scorpion-like body, and states his intentions to kill them both.
