Japanese title: Uragiri no hate (裏切りの果て)
Naruto and Sakura are shocked when they hear that Danzo's goal is to work with Orochimaru to once again attempt to defeat the Leaf Village. Sakura worries about Naruto, who is still recovering from his rampage, but when Yamato explains that they'll never have another such chance against Orochimaru, they begin their pursuit. The injuries inflicted by Naruto as the Nine-Tailed Fox cause Sakura to fall behind, and Team Kakashi is forced to take a break. Meanwhile, Orochimaru realizes that he is being followed.
