Episode Recap

Naruto is still fighting but is losing. His enemy uses an attack which stops a person's ability to think. He captures Naruto and throws kunai at him. Naruto is now under some rocks and Hinata saves him. He tells Hinata to run but she decides to fight. The enemy tries to use the same jutsu on Hinata but she uses her absolute defense to deflect it. Then Hinata uses her taijutsu but their enemy doesn't seem to be affected by her gentle fist style.

The enemy throws his kunai at Hinata but she escapes using explosive tags. She runs away to try and lead him away from Naruto. Then she thinks of something that would probably defeat the enemy.

She strikes her enemy and uses her gentle fist to interfere with the enemy's chakra flow. She then drags him into a sandy area and the enemy's body is now surrounded by sand. Hinata is also being swallowed by the sand. Naruto saves her using shadow replications. Naruto asked her where the enemy was and she says that he is probably in the bottom of the sand. She then gives back Naruto's forehead protector. She also tells him to go on ahead and get the princess back.

Naruto has finally found the princess. She is distraught and throws Naruto in the water. They talked and she tells Naruto about her past. Then Naruto tells her that he will protect her because he promised Hinata.

Meanwhile, Chouji, Hinata, and another guy are attacked by mysterious people. They are surrounded and it seems that they will be captured.

Naruto and the princess has almost made it to Nano country but suddenly they were attacked by a ninja.
