Thinking Lee might still be mad about his past defeat at Gaara's hands, Tenten and the others try to find a way to bring them closer. A Rock Lee impostor appears and starts causing trouble in the village. Lee's group attempt to catch him using a cross-dressing Neji as bait, but then Tenten and Neji impostors show up.
