The official synopsis for Boruto Episode 217:
"Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 217 Isshiki and Sasuke are both surprised by the tremendous chakra Naruto displays in his new form. Naruto sent Boruto to Sasuke and told him to protect the boy.
Sasuke notices that Naruto's power is now on par or greater than Isshiki's as Naruto manages to catch the enlarged rods thrown at him, angering Isshiki even more. Growing desperate after seeing his blood, Isshiki begins raining down enlarged rods, but Naruto avoids them and knocks Isshiki around, even hitting him with a Rasengan. However, Naruto begins to feel the drawbacks of Baryon Mode and Isshiki releases Naruto is sacrificing his life force for this power. Meanwhile, Amado is surprised by Kawaki's prosthetic arm, which runs on Naruto's chakra, and they are all shocked as the chakra in the prosthetic begins weakening. Coughing up more blood, Isshiki uses his Byakugan to see that Naruto is siphoning his life force off as well and the Hokage taunts him.
Isshiki grabs Naruto and senses that Kawaki is connected to Naruto's chakra due to his prosthetic arm. He then summons Kawaki to their location and goes after him until Sasuke blinds him with a smoke bomb that blocks the Byakugan's vision. In desperation, Isshiki unleashes all his shrunken rods on the battleground and holds Naruto hostage, thinking that Kawaki would come to help him. Isshiki begins counting down, which reminds Kawaki of the time Jigen used to train him and threaten to kill his pet fish, whenever he would hideaway. He also remembers everything good that happened to him, since he came to the Leaf, prompting him to come out of hiding."
