Kabuto and Yukimaru travelled to a lake, where Kabuto then attempted to draw out a mysterious creature under it. Guren split up from her men to find Orochimaru, who had Sasuke fight an army of Sound Ninja as training. Sasuke had defeated them all, but had then declared that he hadn't killed even one of them because the only person he wanted to kill was Itachi. Naruto continued his training by summoning Gamakichi and Gamatatsu, but still didn't understand the concept of connecting to another person's heart. Kabuto and Yukimaru arrived at Yugakure, where Naruto and Jiraiya were at that time.
