The plot of Boruto Episode 266 is not known at this moment. This is why we are going to bring you a short recap of the most recent episode that has aired; this is so you know what happened before:
Himawari offers to protect Kae for Kawaki. Eiki warns Kawaki that he plans to eventually reveal his true identity. Kae confides in Kawaki that she plans to organize a school-wide event. Himawari prepares Kawaki for the tea party. At the party, Eiki calls out to Kawaki while the others are horrified by his presence. Kawaki and Himawari try to convince the others that the former likes tea and all kinds of sweets.
Himawari brags that Gaara is close friends with Naruto and visits him often. The class ends up liking Kawaki more after answering Kae’s questions. However, Kawaki soon suspects that the cake is poisoned, so he throws it in front of everyone, saddening the princess. While Himawari distracts the others, Kawaki is able to determine that the cake, despite not being poisoned, has been tampered with.
It exposes Osuka Kamakura, the self-centered daughter of Kagemasa Gongoro actor, as the culprit. Kae lashes out at Osuka and Osuka breaks down and apologizes. When Kae realizes that the class accepts her true self, she is happy. Kawaki provides everyone with Taiyaki to make up for the cake.
