Yamato arrives and berates Naruto for getting away from him. Kakashi, Sakura and Naruto head back to their village, awakening Sai, Kiba and Lee on the way, who were still out from Sakura's sneak attack. The Raikage and his escort return to their village, where they hold a council with their feudal lord explaining what occurred at the Five Kage Summit and what must now be done to confront the Akatsuki in the upcoming war. Meanwhile, it is revealed that Kisame and Madara had planned to infiltrate the Cloud Village to gather intel on them. White Zetsu has the ability to clone himself by absorbing someone's chakra and used that to his advantage during Kisame's fight with Killer Bee. The real Kisame is now hidden inside of Samehada, showing the infiltration was a success.
