Inuyasha picks up Naraku's scent in the area and proceeds to follow it. Jaken rushes to Sesshōmaru's side to tell him Rin was abducted. One of Naraku's puppets appears and tells him that if he does not wish to see Rin harmed. He will do as he says and kill Inuyasha. Sesshōmaru simply ignores him, and passes through Naraku's barrier in pursuit of the villain. Inuyasha follows Naraku's scent while the others go in search of a Shikon fragment Kagome has detected that they believe must belong to Kohaku. Kohaku has been charged with watching over Rin.

When Inuyasha is able to cut through Naraku's barrier, Naraku orders Kagura to go confront him, but she secretly wants to allow Inuyasha to come in hopes he will kill Naraku and set her free.
