Mitsuki visits Orochimaru in Otogakure saying he’s not feeling well. Mitsuki reports he’s been having dreams since meeting Ōnoki, of when he first saw Boruto’s picture. While they examine Mitsuki, Orochimaru and Log discuss the possibility of the Iwagakure incident having affected Mitsuki emotionally, in a way that is only now surfacing.
Orochimaru and Log look through Mitsuki’s memories starting when he met Ōnoki, and comment on Mitsuki’s self-reflection. The ponder the meaning and intent behind Mitsuki’s actions as he met with the Fabrications, and later going with them to Iwagakure. Log is concerned about the effects having had to attack Boruto to gain the Fabrications’ trust had on Mitsuki. The two are concerned when they realise there’s a chance Mitsuki might know they’re the ones who instigated his interest in Boruto. Orochimaru wants to erase Mitsuki’s memory, fearing that his rapid psychological development is outpacing his brain’s ability to sustain it.
They continue to review Mitsuki’s memories, now going through his betrayal of Kū and Sekiei’s death. As they finish reviewing Mitsuki’s memories of the Iwagakure incident, Log is unsure if they should erase Mitsuki’s memories. Orochimaru leaves the room. When Mitsuki wakes up, Orochimaru tells he’ll continue to hurt, and gives him the choice of making it go away at the cost of his memories. Mitsuki wakes up at home, woken up by Mikazuki, and hears Boruto at his door, telling him Sarada wants to see Mikazuki. Log is relieved that they didn’t have to erase Mitsuki’s memories. Orochimaru says there might come a day when they’ll need to do it, but thinks that Mitsuki will be able to overcome such a need.
