While on his way to the Kage Summit, Danzō receives an update from Sai. In Konoha, Sai thinks about Naruto and Sakura's relationship and how the promise Naruto made about Sasuke continues to hang over him. In the Land of Iron, Naruto meets with the Fourth Raikage. Despite him being forbidden to be anywhere near the Kage Summit, he pleads for the Raikage to forgive Sasuke for his crimes. The Raikage refuses and tells Naruto his actions are unbecoming of a shinobi since the Summit is about to seal Sasuke's status as a criminal. The Raikage leaves Naruto behind and continues on to the Kage Summit, unaware that Sasuke and the rest of Taka are watching the Kage arrive.
