Naruto ran into Guren while trying to find Yukimaru, and battled her. Yamato and Kakashi found Naruto and brought him back to the group. Kabuto told Guren that Yukimaru was only a tool to be used to control the Three-Tails, which upset her. Meanwhile, Shizune, Ino, Tenten and Lee met up with the others to tell them of their new mission to seal the Three-Tails before Orochimaru's group could capture it. They were also to rescue Yukimaru and bring him back to the village.
