Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Chapter 4 Recap & Spoilers
Having used his toad allies to track down Code’s hideout, Boruto finds him but suddenly, no Ten Tails. It’s quickly revealed that they’ve taken humanoid form and attained self-awareness. Despite looking at Code like he’s his subordinate, Bug, trapped in a tree, the creature lunges at Boruto and Code. Seeing the threat ahead, Boruto rescinds the Uzuhiko to try to get Code to help.
Meanwhile, Sarada clashes with Kawaki in Shikamaru’s office to convince them to ally with Boruto to fight Code. But with the Divine Trees achieving sentience and becoming a new emergency, will that alliance be enough? These creatures are enamored with their new state of self-awareness and thirst for knowledge, but is their power and desire to consume more energy and the Ohtsutsuki going to make them the most dangerous menace yet?
Finally, the last panels see Boruto having retreated and speaking with Koji Kashin, being told not to be so rash. But it doesn’t help the mood much, as Boruto is revealed to be resting against a tree with Sasuke trapped inside, as he laments being unable to free his mentor just yet.
