The Jinchūriki's Tears (人柱力の涙, Jinchūriki no Namida) is episode 9 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
When the meeting in Sunagakure concluded, someone rushes in and tells them what happened to Kankurō. Sasori catches up to Deidara and the two were ready to make off with their target. Kankurō is later found and brought back to Suna's hospital. The poison spreads in his body and that no one in the Suna knows how to extract it. En route to the Sunagakure, Team Kakashi spot Temari, who joins them upon hearing what happened to Gaara. While travelling, Naruto weeps about the situation Gaara is in. Kankurō's condition worsens, and his body is in such a weak condition that he could barely speak. Despite this, he is able to tell Baki about Sasori. Baki approaches and informs the two about Gaara's capture by Akatsuki and Kankurō's condition. Despite displaying disinterest, Chiyo still wants to see her grandson, Sasori, one more time.
