The plot intensifies Boruto: two blue vortices, and chapter 4 has huge bombshells, the biggest being Sasuke’s fate. There has been a lot of speculation about Sasuke since the beginning of the second part of the manga, and it has been a fairly accepted theory that something terrible would happen to him, most likely death, but the recent chapter shows that what really happened to him is much worse than the death.
Chapter 4 featured an intense fight between Boruto and new villains who could be the most powerful in the series so far. One of the villains looked a lot like Sasuke, but was ignored in light of the shocking revelations.
However, at the end of the chapter, Boruto rests on a tree that trapped Sasuke. No one could have seen this unfold, as the powerful and mighty Sasuke fell victim to Code’s filth.
Sasuke has been trapped in a tree by the Grimes
The Grimes are monsters that Code created from the Ten-Tails and are very similar to the White Zetsu. However, they are much more dangerous as anyone they turn into a tree will be incapacitated. Not only is there no way to bring them back, but the Ten-Tails can make a copy of that person and manifest. It seems that Sasuke was attacked by Grime, which explains why Boruto didn’t directly kill Code, but instead asked him to stop the Grimes and free everyone who had been turned into trees.
It’s heartbreaking that the Ten-Tails chose to manifest as Sasuke, which made his fate even more tragic. Sasuke’s clone looks exactly like him and can use all of his abilities, including the Chidori, as seen in the fight with Boruto. Additionally, the clone possesses a Rinnegan and all of Sasuke’s techniques, making him one of the most formidable enemies in the series, given the original Sasuke’s immense power. This fight could be Boruto’s toughest challenge yet, not only because of the opponent’s strength but also because of the emotional bond he has with his mentor.
The stage has finally been set for Boruto and Kawaki to take over. Kawaki already sealed Naruto at the end of part 1, and now Boruto’s mentor has suffered more or less the same fate. While it’s a relief that fan-favorite Sasuke wasn’t killed, Grime’s capture of him is just as bad, if not worse. Boruto He said at the end that Sasuke will have to wait a little longer, which means he has a plan to bring him back.
