A Ghostly Appearance
Mitsuki is excited to be in the home of Naruto, and the parents of Boruto are excited to have a friend of Boruto's over. Whilst at dinner, Naruto is interrupted, he uses his ninja skills to mirror himself into a different location.
The ghost has struck again and Boruto can tell from this disappearance that something has happened.
An angry Boruto leaves with Mitsuki going after the fiery ninja. Meanwhile, Mitsuki has decided he can trust Boruto and once he caught up with Boruto a tense Mitsuki has something to tell the young ninja.
We are cut off from the episode whilst Mitsuki goes through a series of back and forths with Boruto, and the identity of the ghost has been implied as being the class rep Sumire.
An average episode that started off as what felt like another filler but ends up revealing a big twist. It feels like it is slowly setting up future episodes within the Boruto legacy.
