    This episode is a real twist, after leaving haku and naruto in a stand off with haku giving up his life because he feels that he is finished as a shinobi. naruto plunges for an attack but is stopped by haku saying that zabuza is in troble and it is time for him to do what is needed by putting his body in the way of kakashi's chidori and losing his life. inari is asking his uncle and the other villiagers to help in the fight against gato. but inari is the only one who knows what it is to be a man. with haku dead thjis aint going to end well.moreless

    Kakashi has just charged up his Lightning Blade jutsu to finish off Zabuza. Haku tells Naruto that he must kill him in order to finish their fight honorably. Naruto hesitates until Haku insists that there is no other way. Just as Naruto gets to Haku, Haku senses that Zabuza is in mortal danger. He stops Naruto and disappears. Haku appears just in front of Zabuza and takes the blow from Kakashi's Lightning Blade. Zabuza sees his chance and swings his sword to cut down Kakashi. Kakashi is amazed at how callous Zabuza is. He would cut down his own partner in order to kill Kakashi....moreless

    Okay this was a great episode. Ya see there are four classifications: Bad, Good, Great and Excellent.I'm glad I cleared that up. Anyway in the story, Inari tries to recruit Wave Village Members to join him in order to save the village. Every one says no because they know what happened to the last hero.. Kaiza. Inari remember taht he must never give up (or something' like that) so he just goes to other houses. The wife of the man he trying to recruit says that Inari has grown up. At the bridge, Kakashi is ready to unleash his full fury of the Lightning Blade or Chidori/Raikari. Meanwhile Haku keeps on telling Naruto to kill him. Naruto tries to but can't. Then he gets the guts to and lifts his kunei. Haku senses that Zabuza is in danger -somehow- and disappears to go save him. Kakashi raises his arm and then... hits Haku instead of Zabuza. Kakashi realizes this and tries to get his arm out of there so he doesn't kill him. But Haku just won't let go. He wants to die there. For Zabuza. Zabuza complements Haku for a job well done. Meanwhile Inari is getting ready for his strike on the bridge. On the bridge Zabuza sees his chance and goes after Kakashi. Kakashi manages to dodge while holding a dead haku in his hand. Naruto calls him heartless and goes after him with his kunei. Or at least that's what he would have done, but Kakashi tells him to stop. Then the mist clears and Sakura & Tazuna can finally see that battle. Sakura runs to go see her boy-toy Sasuke andpasses Naruto along the way. They don't make eye contct and Sakura realizes why. Sasuke is DEAD! Sakura lets out all her emotions and Tazuna tells her its okay. Then Kakashi and Zabuza go back to fighting. But along the way Gato and his men arrive.moreless
  • Kakashi and Zabuza keep on fighting. Haku saves Zabuza's life at a high price, Inari gathers some people from the village to fight against Gato and his henchmen.

    Naruto is about to do what Haku asked for naw that he has taken Haku's purpose in life. Haku stops him and goes immediately to save Zabuza's life. At the moment of this event I had thought that it was going to be simple what was going to happen if Zabuza was in danger. Kakashi did look very different when he had seen what his Chidori had done to Haku but at least he didn't do it on purpose. This was a good event. Inari in this episode tried to get some people from the village to try and stop Gato and his henchmen. I didn't really think that people were really going to go because the village did change after Kaiza died. Overall this episode was great.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Kakashi states that Haku is dead, in the next frame we see Haku with a smiling face (smiling eyes and a smile on Haku's lips) but showing no teeth. When Zabuza tries to kill Kakashi and Kakashi takes Haku's corpse with him, after Kakashi lands we see Haku's face again, but this time Haku's face has a stunned expression which shows Haku's teeth.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Haku: Sorry Naruto, change of plans. (Hands signs) I'm not ready to die quite yet.

    • Naruto: Huh? What? Where did he go? Huh? Hey! The fog's lifting. Wait...is that him?
      (Sees Kakashi attack Haku)

    • Zabuza: Not bad for having a corpse in your hands.
      Naruto: You'll pay for that!
      Kakashi: No! Stay out of this Naruto. (Closes Haku's eyes) This is my battle...Zabuza is mine!

    • Zabuza: Why...Why can't I keep up with him?

    • Sakura: So you and Sasuke are alright? What's wrong? Where is Sasuke anyway?
      (Naruto has a sad look on his face)

    • Sakura: His body's cold. This isn't just one of his genjutsu tricks, is it.

    • Sakura: Did you know there are more than 100 principles of shinobi conduct? I memorized every single one.

    • Sakura: A shinobi never shows his feelings, no matter what the circumstances.

    • Tazuna: At last, I think this blasted fog is lifting.
      Sakura: Look, they're standing still, like they're squaring off.

    • Kakashi: Your future is all used up, Zabuza!

    • Haku: Go on. Finish it. Kill me
      (Naruto backs away from Haku)
      Haku: Why...do you hesitate?
      (Naruto inches back)
      Haku: I thought you wanted to be a mighty warrior
      Naruto: That's not what it's about. Do you think thats all there is to it? Just fighting and killing until there's only one man standing? There's a lot more to being Shinobi than that, and there are other ways to show you're stronger than just by beating someone in battle.
      Haku: I had a feeling all along. From the first moment we met in the woods. We are alot alike. I'm sure you know what I mean. I'm only sorry that it has to be your hand that is tainted with my un-worthy blood.
      Naruto: Sure about this? And are you sure that it's the only way?
      Haku: Yes.
      Naruto: The weird thing is, that if we met at another time and place, I think that maybe we could have been friends.

    • Zabuza: (Chuckles) Well done, Haku. HYAH! (Reaches for his sword)
      Kakashi: (Thinking) He'd hack through the boy just to take me down?!
      Zabuza: I knew I found a treasure when I found you, boy! You've not only given me my life, but Kakashi's as well!

    • Kakashi: The boy threw himself in front of my attack! He saved your worthless life...at the cost of his own!

    • Kakashi: Look at you! You're falling apart! I knew you didn't have what it takes for the long haul!
      Zabuza: What did you say?
      Kakashi: You have no idea what real strength is! Game over, you lose!

    • Naruto: This is for Sasuke, because he, also had a dream!
