In Konoha, Sai confronts Sakura, explaining to her that the reason Naruto has been so persistent on bringing back Sasuke is because he has always been in love with her. Realizing she's inflicted pain upon Naruto, Sakura departs, intending to speak with him. At the Summit, the Mizukage's guard, Ao, discovers Danzo's Sharingan and accuses him of using his powers to manipulate Mifune's decision. At that moment, White Zetsu appears, announcing Sasuke's arrival at the Summit. Meanwhile, Madara confronts Naruto.
