Inside the lair, Deidara angers Naruto by stating Gaara's death. Kakashi tells Naruto to calm down. After Deidara and Sasori get into an argument about what art truly is, Deidara takes Gaara's body away within a clay bird as bait, forcing Naruto and Kakashi to follow him. Sakura and Chiyo remain behind to battle Chiyo's grandson, Sasori.
