Naruto is running through the forest as the episode starts, desperately trying to catch up with Team 7. On the bridge Kakashi confirms his suspicions of Haku, and that he was helping Zabuza. Sasuke takes Haku on as his enemy, and the battle begins. Haku makes the first move by spinning into a tornado like swirl and charging towards Sasuke.
Back at Inari's house, two Gato thugs break into Inari's house, catching Inari's mom in the kitchen. Inari, who was in the bath room, hears the plates breaking and his mom screaming runs out to help. Seeing him, one of the thugs starts to move up to kill him, but Inari's mom screams she'll kill herself if they did. So needing at least one hostage, they take her away without harming Inari.Taking Inari's mom away, the two thugs here Inari screaming at them. Turning around, they decide to kill him now anyways. Inari charging towards them, they pull out their swords and slice at him.
Back at the bridge, Sasuke stops Haku's attack with his own kunai. After repeatedly having his attacks stopped, Haku asks Sasuke if he would back down. Sasuke obviously answers no, and Haku proceeds with his next attack. Keeping one of Sasuke's hands busy, he performs some seals with the other! Stomping on the floor, Haku immediately creates a thousand crystal water needles and shoots them at Sasuke who is still engaged by Haku. Then the needles come crashing down...
Inari, after charging at the two Gato thugs gets chopped in half. But looking back, the two thugs see that the thing they really sliced was a log, a replacement technique! Looking up, they see Naruto with Inari and his mom in his hands. Laying them down, he turns to the two thugs who are furious, and charge. Naruto tries to stop them with some shuriken, but they easily deflect them. Smiling as the two thugs charge straight at him with there swords, Naruto simply smiles at cal them idiots... Then out of no where, two Kage Bushins kick the two thugs from behind, taking them out.
Back at the bridge, Sasuke gathers his chakara and jumps to dodge the needles aimed at him! Jumping behind Haku, he starts his offensive. Swinging his kunai at Haku, he tries to land some blows. Haku deflects it with his own needle, but Sasuke then throws the Kunai at him, which he also dodges. But while dodging the Kunai, Haku opens himself up to an attack, which is then when Sasuke bends down and kicks Haku in the face!
Haku then uses his special jutsu and summons a bunch of mirrors around himself. The mirrors then encircle and trap Sasuke in. From the mirrors Haku starts to launch his attacks at incredible speeds, nailing Sasuke with needle after needle. When Sasuke tries to breakout, he fails miserably. Then suddenly out of know were a smoke of cloud appears. Standing right in the middle is Konoha number one noisy ninja, Uzumaki Naruto!
