Danzo is appointed as acting Hokage and orders for Sasuke to be eliminated. As Naruto, Sakura and Sai discuss what to do, Omoi and Karui confront them, demanding information on Sasuke, who they learn is now an Akatsuki member. Madara then tells Taka that Killer Bee had deceived them and was never actually captured. He also tells them of Konoha's recent destruction, Naruto's increased abilities and the Five Kage Summit, which Danzo will attend.
