Twitter user @Abdul_S172 shared major spoiler details for Boruto Chapter 72. You can read them below:
So pretty much, there are three major plot points in this chapter:
- Momoshiki appearing in front of Boruto and the tension between them.
- Shikimaru's phone conversation with Amado, who's with Daemon and Ada in the Land of Snow.
- Code making an army using the chakra of the Ten Tails. The creature looks like a mix of Frieza from Dragon Ball and White Zetsu.
A timeskip is expected to come in a future chapter of Boruto, but Chapter 72 probably won't have one.
