Don't you hate it when something gets embedded in you -- particularly if that something is a forbidden jutsu? Well, if you're tough like Hotaru, you accept that responsibility, and her story continues in this week's new episode of Naruto Shippuden. We also get some tantalizing glimpses of the Great Ninja War, not to mention the unexpected appearance of a great horned beast! And you have to love the brief flashback to the young, vulnerable, outcast Naruto -- ah, memories... View the latest episode in the Naruto Shippuden section.
Episode 148: Heir to Darkness

While Naruto and Kakashi chase after Deidara, Sakura and Granny Chiyo together take on Sasori of the Red Sand. Sasori's masterful puppetry allows him to use the jutsu of the person he's transformed into a puppet, forcing Sakura and Chiyo to face the power of the Third Kazekage. But with Chiyo's guidance, Sakura learns to read Sasori's moves, and the training she received from Tsunade turns out to be invaluable as the attacks grow ever more fierce!
