Kakashi finds Sakura's team in the middle of a path, and gets Sasuke's coordinates from Kiba. Meanwhile, Sakura tells Sasuke that she is willing to leave Konoha and follow him. Sasuke then tells Sakura to kill Karin as a sign of her willingness to do anything. With Sakura's back turned to him, Sasuke attempts to kill her, but the attack is intercepted by Kakashi. Kakashi tells Sakura to leave Sasuke to him and heal Karin, as the two clash. After Sakura heals Karin, she once again attempts to kill Sasuke with a kunai, but Sasuke turns the tables on her as she hesitates. Before Sasuke can kill Sakura with her own kunai, she is rescued once again — this time by Naruto.
This episode has a few animation errors:
Kakashi's Mangekyō Sharingan is inaccurately depicted as having a red design on a black background, though this error was fixed in episode 215.
Sasuke's Susanoo is incorrectly depicted with five fingers instead of six, holding a gourd in the secondary right hand instead of an Amaterasu orb in the primary right hand and the bow in the left hand instead of nothing. Its teeth are also depicted incorrectly.
