The episode starts out in the hospital where the Class Representative is recovering from her injuries with many people from the class visiting her for well-wishing. Naruto shows up and leads Boruto and his friends to another part of the hospital where the man who was possessed by the shadow is in intensive care. Naruto says that the man’s chakra was almost completely drained out of him, and that this investigation has become a serious matter, not for kids playing detective. The three of them return to the post office to continue their part-time jobs as delivery boys. On the route, Mitsuki informs Boruto and Shikadai that there has been another shadow attack. They go to investigate, but they are always just behind the village police who are now investigating the matter. The rest of their class shows up at the post office to help, and they run off; however, the minute they leave the shadow appears and possesses the post master, sending him into a rage. The group reappears instantly because they knew the shadow would strike there only to find the person controlling the shadow. In his state, the post master complains about how the job is worthless and he gets no respect for it, but Tayori reminds him that every piece of mail has a recipient waiting for it which calms him down enough to catch him off guard. Despite their efforts, the person controlling the shadow escapes. Boruto and his classmates cheerily cleaning up the post office after the big fight. A couple of shadowy figures talk about how they need the negative chakra from people to awaken an entity called "Nue".
