With the realization that God has taken Gokū's body, the Dragon Team resolves to focus on finding the Dragon Balls instead to wish their fallen comrade back. Wondering how Gokū's brother managed to find them, Piccolo explains the device on the alien's face. Bulma concludes that it is an impressive piece of technology, and decides to fix it. Regenerating his arm, much to the shock of the others, Piccolo takes Gohan, explaining that he's going to train the boy and unlock his hidden potential, regardless of the other's protests.
In the Afterworld, God has taken Gokū to meet with the Enma Daiō, asking that he be allowed to travel along Snake Way to train under Kaiō. After finding out that his brother was also sent here, but was overpowered and sent to Hell, Gokū is sent on his way. God is left to his own worries, but mumbles his fears aloud, causing Enma to force him to leave,
One of the ogres takes Gokū to the mouth of Snake Way, and tells him this road — which is about a million kilometers — will take him straight to Kaiō. The only person who has ever crossed it before was Enma himself. Before leaving, Gokū asks the ogre to tell Uranai Baba to ask Kame Sennin not to revive him for a full year, before taking off, flying down the road. As his friends worry about telling Chi-Chi what has happened to her son and husband, Gokū has already used up his ki and is forced to walk.
