"Return" (帰還, Kikan) is episode 219 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.
Boruto fails to create a rift to Konoha, their only way home since Sasuke no longer has his Rinnegan. Kawaki asks if he's afraid of being taken over by Momoshiki again, and vows to help him get rid of his Kāma, just as they helped him. Boruto is able to create a rift as Kawaki begins arguing with him, and they all leave for Konoha. Shikamaru receives word of their return, and Amado asks about Kawaki. Shikamaru, Katasuke, Sumire, Sarada, and Mitsuki greet them. Sarada asks about her father's eye, but doesn't blame Boruto when he claims responsibility. Sasuke agrees with her. Naruto, Sai, and Shikamaru confer with Amado, to ask about the state of Kara with Isshiki's death. He reveals that the remaining Inner, Code, is dangerous, as a non-functional Vessel who bears a Kāma. Since his Kāma doesn't function as a means of reincarnation, it wasn't erased, but it still functions as a weapon. Amado explains that while he modified other Inners to make them stronger, he instead restrained Code's power, so as not to undermine Jigen's authority, as Code is deeply devoted to the Ōtsutsuki.
Code is the only cyborg stronger than Jigen that Amado didn't dispose of under Jigen's orders, and is likely to seek vengeance for Isshiki's death. Code wakes up at the Ten-Tails' pen, having dozed off. His White Kāma activates, manifesting a vision of Isshiki, who deems Code his successor and bequeaths his mission to him. Boruto and Kawaki talk about going back home. Sakura and Katasuke go over what the loss of Kurama and the Rinnegan mean for Naruto and Sasuke. Boruto and Kawaki also receive confirmation of their bodies being 80% Ōtsutsuki, and Kawaki reaffirms his commitment to helping Boruto get rid of his Kāma. Katasuke and Boruto are pestered by the media, wanting to know how the fight with Isshiki went down. Boruto's friends watch him being interviewed on TV. Mitsuki informs Sarada that because of Boruto's situation, Team 7 is currently prohibited from going on missions. Boruto apologises for his problem affecting them. Sumire is concerned about him and realises her feelings for Boruto, and Boruto rides the train while pondering about his Kāma.
