Kakashi prepares to chase after Sakura, knowing that she is currently no match for Sasuke. As Naruto thinks about everything everyone has told him about Sasuke, he begins to hyperventilate and passes out. Elsewhere, Sasuke asks Danzō if it is true that Konoha ordered Itachi to kill the Uchiha clan. Danzō attacks him but is caught by Sasuke's Susanoo. Danzō admits it, then curses Itachi for putting so much importance in Sasuke, even going so far as telling Sasuke a secret that he was supposed to die with. Sasuke crushes him in anger. Despite his apparent death, Danzō appears behind Sasuke and offers to end their conversation.
