Annoyed by Gaara's recent behaviour, Falcon's life starts to turn around, changing his personality. Becoming a cold-hearted, uncaring rogue, he starts to threaten Gaara. He promises Gaara he will ruin his life, and Gaara inquires mockingly how he will do that. Falcon replies by killing Gaara. Gaara is shocked but manages to snap that he will live without her, as he did many, many times.
Falcon hangs on to his promise, and after watching Gaara tell Sakura to stay away from Falcon, he brings his mother to a pretty, purple flower. Then he attacks Sakura. He later kills her, and infuriated, Gaara kills Falcon.
Sitting next to Sakura's newly dug grave, Falcon is bleeding to death.
