What Happened Previously On Boruto?
Sasuke and Sakura formed a plan to break into Zansul’s office. Sakura welcomed Prime Minister’s envoy, Fandal, upon his arrival in the prison. She learned that Fandel was there to ask Zansul about the progress but didn’t state what it was about. She took him into a room, performed Genjustu on him, and transformed herself into Fandel. She also transformed Sasuke into a cane used for walking.
Disguised as Fandel, she went to meet Zansul and asked him about the progress, but the latter didn’t tell her anything. In the meantime, Sasuke managed to go to the cellar, where he discovered a room full of fossils, chickens, and an altar, and he deduced that Zansul must be using Reanimation Jutsu to summon the beast. Sasuke learned that Zansul was creating an army of beasts with someone’s help.
Suddenly, Meno arrived from the back entrance and attacked Sasuke, but the latter let him bite his hand instead of fighting him back. He used his Reanimation Jutsu to rewrite Meno’s loyalty to Zansul and instantly befriended him while he covered his wounds with Mist Style. At the end of the episode, Zansul summons a new Meno after an inmate divulges Sasuke and Sakura’s plans to him.
