Boruto Episode 188 Spoilers

In Episode 187, Koji makes his presence known by summoning Steam Toad. Its weight breaks a portion of the shattered tower, and the falling debris kills Ao. But before his death, he moves Boruto away from the debris with Water Style: Water Shockwave, saving the young ninja’s life. Koji wonders whether it was just a reflex for Ao to act heroic or he wanted to die as a Shinobi. Koji then traps Boruto and company with Sealing Jutsu Frog Gulp and tells them that he can’t let them live as they know too much.

Konohamaru nullifies the effects of the Sealing Jutsu on him, and he and Koji begin fighting. It is quickly proven that Konohamaru is outmatched. Koji uses the Trance of True Flames to engulf Konohamaru in flames that he claims neither gale nor deluge can extinguish. As he watches Konohamaru suffer, Boruto inadvertently activates the Karma seal, which absorbs both the sealing Jutsu and the flames around Konohamaru. Koji says that he will retreat for now because Boruto showed him something interesting. After Koji leaves, the group buries Ao.

As they make their way back to the village, the group finds an unconscious boy who also seems to have the Karma Seal. Elsewhere, Delta and Code wonder if Koji and Boro are traitors. In episode 188, Boruto and others might find out the identity of the boy they have discovered.
