Quick Recap of Previous Chapter

Before getting ahead, let’s do a breakdown of what happened in the previous chapter.

The chapter begins with Code still trying to kill Amado. The scientist knows he cannot win against him, so he starts to go against Eida, making her unsure of killing him. Code is not willing to listen to him, but Eida is asking him to keep quiet. Code remarks on Eida forbidding him from killing Kawaki, so he is not going to forgive Amado as well, so Eida calls Daemon to stop him. The kid is able to stop him easily, but this is not enough to calm him down. In Konoha, Shikamaru talks with Naruto, Boruto, Kawaki and Sasuke. He tells them about Eida’s ability to charm anyone, and they infer that she must be a Cyborg like Code. Shikamaru is sure that there is a third Cyborg.
