Boruto tells Sarada they lost the battle against Deepa and it is frustrating. Sarada reveals the Sharingan did not affect the formidable enemy. Even Boruto’s Rasengan could not scratch Deep’s armored body. Boruto said that they can’t be protected all the time

Meanwhile, Victor and Deepa return to the lab with the Hashirama Cell to continue their experiments.
