I think Kishi made it easy to guess how the plot will develop.
Will be saved by Minato who will teleport in and infuse his Kyuubi chakra into Naruto and spit some motivational words to his skull.
Will be saved by Hashirama's senju chakra. Then a flashback will show Hashi making the transfer via some pollen ish. This most likely means that Sasuke will awaken the Rinnegan.
