Naruto will send a shadow clone to Himawari's birthday bash.
In episode 54, Boruto will learn that his father has sent in a shadow clone once again to attend an important family event, much to his disappointment. From here, Boruto will hate his father even more. Suddenly, someone will knock on the Uzumaki's door, and Boruto will assume that the person by the doorstep is his father. He will plan to meet his own father with a punch, but he will be shocked to see that the person is none other than Sasuke, Naruto's infamous rival.
