Seeing the Six Paths of Pain, Jiraiya recognises one of them as Yahiko. On closer inspection, he finds that none of them resemble the Nagato he knew despite early convincing himself that Nagato was amongst them. Pain attacks, not giving him the chance to figure out who is who. Meanwhile, Hebi nears Itachi's location. They are intercepted by Kisame, who will only allow Sasuke to proceed. He leaves his team behind and goes and meets with Itachi, who he promises to kill. Elsewhere, Team 7 and Team 8 are stopped from continuing their pursuit of Sasuke by Tobi. Naruto tries to attack him, but it does nothing.
