    The Kazekage remains under dire threat, and so do his villagers. Who will be the victor, Gaara, or the mysterious, explosive Deidara? Sit down with a warm meal and enjoy the ride.

    Previously on Shippuden: Deidara gets his arm crushed and he literally drops the bomb.

    *sigh* Naruto and his ramen

    "Hey Naruto!"

    "Hey non-descript nameless ramen people!"

    Maybe it wouldn't be so long if he got more screentime.

    So Gaara blocked the explosion. Honestly Gaara, your efforts are wasted on these idiots.

    Ah, flashbacks. Back when Naruto was good.

    BTW, nice juxtaposition of Gaara in a life-threatening battle and Naruto eating ramen.

    Deidara may like to rush in and be spontaneous, but he's not stupid.

    Also, I keep forgetting that Roger Craig Smith voiced Deidara. I don't hear him as much in anime these days. He's usually in American animation and video games these days, especially with that upcoming Sonic Boom series.

    Letter-ranked missions. Funny how the anime staff remembered that, but Kishi didn't.

    LOL. Shizune wanted him to walk a dog.

    Ah, good ol' Japanese sneezing cliche.

    Gaara's not done yet.

    No, guys, really your Kazekage is severely injured. Do something!

    Oh yeah, arrows. Truly the pinnacle of their military capabilities.

    Although it's suppose to be symbolic, who at a ramen shop keeps a basket of eggs on the counter in front of the customers?

    What do you mean?

    You're not the only one who uses explosives Deidara.

    Back from work... And I see nothing major has happened despite missing half the episode.

    "You and Sakura managed to Snatch Keikashi Bells!"


    That doesn't sound right.

    Pretty sure letter-ranked missions were all but forgotten at this point in the manga.

    Gaara got exploded and Naruto sat around moping in a ramen shop. So yeah, not much.

    And Gaara's been captured. Man, the sand village sucks.

    Deidara penetrated Gaara's defense by implanting minature bombs into his sand, hence why you see Gaara unconsious. Plus Naruto and Iruka catch up on former student and teacher bonding, which as someone who does like to visit some of his teachers from former schools, I can't help but find that heartwarming.

    So something did happen... but it took over 2 episodes to do.

    This is better on DVD right?

    Gaara has now been captured, leaving the Sand Village without its Kazekage.

    It's better not watched with any hope.
