Sasuke has failed in his mission to catch Killer Bee by seeming to kill the powerful Jinchuriki with the black flames of Amaterasu. Meanwhile, Naruto's team has failed utterly in its attempts to track down Sasuke, and so they head back to the village. They're not yet home when they get a mission from Tsunade, to fulfill an old promise from the Third Hokage.
Team 7 is sent to represent Hidden Leaf Village with Yamato as its leader, and it's high time for the ninjas of the Hidden Leaf Village to stop moping and leap back into action!
Watch all the fireworks on January 21 next week, for Naruto Shippuden Season 4: Episode 144 "The Wanderer"!
