Boruto: Naruto Next Generations just reached a major turning point of the fan-favorite Chunin Exams arc, and it was all the more devastating a second time. But before fans could even process the emotions, the Otstsuki Clan invaded at episode's end.

But what kind of danger do they pose? A new batch of spoilers for the next episode of the series teases a shift in more attention to Boruto's dad, Naruto.

Episode 62 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is titled, "The Otsutsuki Invade!!" and the synopsis reads as such:

"Suddenly, they make an appearance at the Chuunin Exam venue.: The Otsutsuki Clan of Momshiki, Kinshiki, and Urashiki! The goals of the three of them are to disrupt the exam hall in order to obtain Naruto, who possesses the most potent chakra! Right in front of his eyes, Boruto’s father, the Hokage, gets sent flying with a kick by Momoshiki. Boruto is petrified in fear. He musters his courage in the face of his father’s crisis and tries to oppose Momoshiki with scientific ninja weaponry…But his attacks are actually all futile!?"

In this synopsis, the Otsutsuki clan is much stronger than Naruto originally thought as now he's in trouble.
