However, an assassin still lurks in the Academy’s shadows, so Kae is not completely secure. Kawaki will press on with his goal, putting his life in danger to protect Kae from the hired assassin. Eiki’s efforts to reveal Kawaki as a fake Shinobi were the subject of last week’s programme. In episode 268 of Boruto, titled “Target: The School Festival,” various fan-favourite characters returned to help the Academy. It also created speculation among viewers regarding the identity of the killer. Keep reading to find out what happened in the episode that everyone is talking about. Warning: The following article includes information that might be considered a spoiler for Boruto episode 268. After the events of Boruto 268 aired, many viewers on Twitter began to speculate that Hana was behind the killings.
What exactly transpired in the last instalment?
Kawaki and his fellow students were practising for an upcoming school play on the renowned Sannin. Himawari had left her false headband at home, so her brother offered her his. If anybody saw it, Kawaki’s true identity would be exposed, therefore the girl warned him to keep it hidden. Unfortunately, Eiki caught sight of it, and she spent the next three days gathering evidence that Kawaki did not belong in the Academy.
Awards Ceremony of the Academy
In the opening moments of Boruto episode 268, Kawaki was seen defending Kae from the unknown killer. Because of the noise, the girl woke up and questioned Kawaki about what he was doing in the nurse’s office. Kae was escorted home by the young man with dark hair later that evening. He pledged to keep the girl safe even though he knew that if he told Naruto, she wouldn’t be permitted into the event. Kawaki’s students were working hard the day after to get the Academy ready for the event. Hana, who seemed to be exhausted after staying up late to supervise her class, had remained up late to get things done.
Himawari went up to her brother and inquired as to what had caused him so much concern the night before. The brother had to tell his sister a fib to protect her from finding out what had transpired. After the festival began, Boruto and his pals were seen discussing Kawaki’s performance as Lady Katsuyu in the school play. Himawari was astounded by how many people showed out to her celebration. Hana bent over in pain, gripping her head, as the other children chattered excitedly.
After telling her students that she needed to go relax in the nurse’s office, the educator left the classroom. As a result of Hana’s sudden agony, she has become a prime suspect among the arc’s supporters as the would-be killer. In the first episode, the teacher did the same thing right before the killer made themself known. Fan theories suggest the lady has many personalities, one of which is out to get Kae.
What to see during the event
Episode 268 of Boruto resumed with scenes of Boruto and his generation revelling in the festival. Teams 7 and 10 were engaged in a Kunai accuracy competition as Team 5 explored the spooky house the children had constructed. Chocho sampled some of Konishi’s homemade treats. Himawari, Kae, Osuka, Sosha, and Kawaki stood outside the school’s entrance and watched the festival, getting into character for their upcoming performance. Mother Osuka had travelled to the Academy to witness her daughter’s acting debut. Kawaki, upon seeing the elderly lady, inquired of Kae as to whether or not Batora would be attending the event.
The woman said that her boyfriend had to take care of some business that day. Kawaki was concerned because Batora may have been invaluable in protecting Kae. The young man was deep in thought when he spotted two shadowy figures in the crowd and, mistaking them for killers, he raced straight toward them. The two people who encountered the black-haired youngster turned out to be a civilian guy and his daughter. The real killer, however, kept an eye on the celebration from above. Fans, unsurprisingly, were overjoyed to see Boruto and the gang return.
The highlights of the sequences in which the blonde lad, Sarada, Mitsuki, and the others participated were widely shared on Twitter. In Boruto episode 268, Sarada used her Sharingan, which sent many fans into a frenzy. After Himawari’s long absence, it was nice to see Sarada put her Dojutsu skills to good use. Seeing the new generation get along with the old was also exciting for the supporters. Because of their shared love of ninja implements, many viewers had been hoping that Denki and Neon would have a conversation in today’s show, and they finally did. When Team 5 became afraid of the Academy’s haunted house, several people mocked them.
It was a terrorist assault,
The festival-goers in Boruto episode 268 are about to watch the school performance about the Sannin. Kae was becoming apprehensive before her performance, so she went backstage to chat to Kawaki. The princes expressed gratitude to the young man for being such a reliable and supportive friend ever since she first arrived at the Academy. Sad about his deceit, Kawaki could only turn his head to the side. Soul had just notified Kae that it was her turn to take the stage when a tremendous explosion rocked the Academy. Himawari, who had found a message left by the offender, sped toward his brother. Hana was discussing the event with her fellow educators in the staff room.
The Academy, they told her, was full of paper explosives that they had to disarm. There were only five individuals to do the search, and the teachers were concerned about how they would do it. Boruto and the others walked into the lounge and assured Iruka that they would be happy to assist. Kawaki and his classmates were upset about what occurred, and they were inside the gym talking about it. Eiki and Ehou ignored their professors’ orders and helped hunt for explosives instead. The community nearly lost it when they saw Boruto and his buddies rallying around to aid their old professors and rescue the institution. Pictures of the reunion of the Academy’s founding generation are all over social media.
The plot to assassinate Kae
In the second half of episode 268, Boruto and his buddies continued their search for the paper explosives planted by the terrorist. Explosives were discovered by Ehou and Eiki in a large cache buried in the academy’s basement. While Eiki was attempting to disarm them, Ehou quickly retreated to get assistance from his peers. Kawaki, realising that he had to save the Fuma heir, left Kae in Himawari’s care and went to find and aid Eiki. The Uzumaki youth arrived just before the cluster’s primary explosive detonated. To avoid any destruction to the structure, he employed a Shadow Clone to launch the bomb as high as possible.
The students were worried about Kawaki inside the school, but Himawari reassured them that he would be alright. The killer walked in via the front door and detonated a smoke bomb inside the gym. The fog helped the masked man sneak up behind Kae and attempt a backstabbing. Recalling her brother’s words, Himawari launched an attack on the mysterious figure before it could complete its purpose. The two young women figured they would be better off outside. Kae was almost killed a second time by the assassin, but this time Kawaki was there to stop him. The killer fled from the Uzumaki boy, tossing hundreds of explosive Kunai to distract Kawaki and enable him to continue his escape.
Hana was squished to death by falling rubble while trying to find Kawaki. Kae inquired at the end of Boruto episode 268 if Kawaki was responsible for protecting her. One of the highlights of this week’s show was watching Boruto’s friends and classmates in action. Many viewers are pleased to see their beloved characters back in motion. With the events in episode 268 of Boruto, many viewers are starting to think that Hana is the killer. They likened her demeanour to that of Sumire, who was initially misunderstood to be kind but was eventually shown to be evil. Even after being squished by the rocks, all signs point to Hana being the assassin’s intended target.
Consensus and Remarks
Episode 268 of Boruto was just what the franchise needed to get back on track after last week’s lacklustre and somewhat uninteresting entry. Even in the most peaceful moments, the fans were on edge since they had no idea when the villain would strike now that an assassin was hidden in the school. There’s still no word on who’s hiding behind the killer’s mask, but we can only hope that information will emerge soon. In the upcoming episode, we’ll see how the students handled the fallout from the event. Kawaki was taken off the assignment because he did not immediately notify Naruto of the assassin’s identity. Regrettably, that won’t stop the killer from continuing to try to kill the victim. Once the episode airs, we’ll know how things progress.
