Episode Recap

Aoi has knocked Sasuke unconscious with the Lightning Blade and cut one of the last ropes on the bridge. Sakura grabbed Sasuke, but fell over the edge with him and is now trying to stop their fall. She is able to use her chakra and grabs hold of a rock to stop them. The rock gives way and they fall a short distance to a ledge.

Naruto uses his Multi Shadow Clone Jutsu and charges at Aoi. Aoi disposes of all the clones and strikes Naruto's hand as he is forming his Rasengan. The blow knocks Naruto back. He builds up another Rasengan and attacks again, only to be knocked to the ground once again. As he is getting up he notices that the Lightning Blade has cracked from Sasuke's Chidori attack. He charges once more and hits the crack with his Rasengan and breaks the blade. He hits Aoi with the Rasengan and sends him over the edge of the cliff into the river below.

Naruto and Idate then cut the last rope on the bridge and they swing over to the other side. Naruto uses his chakra on his feet to get them up the cliff on the other side. Idate takes off and heads for the finish line. He wins the race and places his item in the temple. Jirocho comes and congratulates him on his win. The other family tried to show that Idate had cheated, but they were proven wrong and shown how corrupt they were and disbanded.

Ibiki comes to pick up Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke. Idate tries to talk to him but Ibiki walks away. He is proud of how Idate turned out. As our heroes leave, it appears that Sasuke is extremely jealous of Naruto.
