Danzō instructs Sai to keep an eye on Naruto, needing to keep him, Konoha's hero, in check if he is to be accepted as Hokage. When Sai goes to meet Naruto and Sakura they ask him about Danzō, hoping to find some way to persuade Danzō to spare Sasuke. Though not aware of Danzō's new orders about Sasuke, Sai cannot help them because of his Root membership. Members of Team Samui overhear them and ask what they know about Sasuke, wishing to know how to kill Sasuke for the crimes he has committed.
