The fight in the village is starting bleed out into the rest of the world as the destruction there is causing cues to appear. Though brief, we get an illuminating scene as lots and lots of birds have fled the village and it's showing up outside of there with Guy noticing it on his return to the Leaf with the others from a mission they're on. Within the village, everything is still pretty chaotic as various groups deal with the Akatsuki that are attacking all around, such as Kiba and Ma going after one of them and other small groups dealing with other members of the six that are here.
Unsurprisingly, the Leaf ninjas continue to have difficulty against these Akatsuki as they push their limits a bit with their diversity and creativity. What proves to be a good spot is that there's a strong segment of dialogue between the Akatsuki and Tsunade early on here where Tend Pain, who Tsunade has actually known before, makes it clear one of the reasons why he wants the Tailed Beasts out of the picture. With them once being something that helped equalize the various villages so they all had one form of really extreme power in them, things have shifted and changed since then and now people like Tendo Pain view them as something that doesn't' belong, hence their quest to gain and drain them all. Tsunade's obviously not going to give up Naruto, especially with as close as she's become to him, but also because she knows just how strong Naruto has become and that he's not someone that she can just hand over anyway
