Sasuke: It’s ridiculous. He tried to kill me countless times.
Madara: If he was serious about killing you, he would have already.
Sasuke: He even used his eye techniques to try and kill me!
*Flashback to the scene where Itachi uses Amaterasu.
Madara: Your reaction to his attack was a part of his plan. He knew he had to push you into a corner.
Madara: You must have figured it out by now, right?
*Sasuke remembers back when Itachi finished off Orochimaru
*Madara looks at Sasuke’s neck
Madara: To release you from the cursed seal. And the death of the one closest to you…the fight was just as much about forcing you to unlock the Mangekyou Sharingan.
Madara: All of it was part of the fight Itachi planned. He put on the act of trying to take your eyes up until the very end.
*Sasuke is silent
Madara: Have you taken it all in?
Sasuke: You’re lying! Itachi said that you were the one that unleashed the Kyuubi on the village!
*Another flashback to what Itachi said during the fight
Sasuke: To give the Uchiha a bad name! To play games with the clan!
マダラ「さっきも言ったがそれも嘘だ。お前に真実が伝わるのをイタチは恐れていた」「その可能 性を残さぬよ うにお前にオレを信用させない為嘘をつき、天照までも仕込んだ」
Madara: I said it before, but that is a lie. Itachi feared that I might tell you the truth. In order to prevent such a possibility he lied to you so you wouldn’t trust me and even rigged your eyes with Amaterasu.
Sasuke: You think I can believe you?! Itachi was evil! He was a criminal made so by Akatsuki!
マダラ「ただ一人決してぬぐえぬ罪を背負い里を抜けてなお暁に入り込み里にとって危険な組織を 内側から見張 っていた……常に里を想いながら……そしてお前のことを……お前を守る約束をした３代目が死ん でイタチはす ぐ木の葉に姿を表した」
Madara: He took on the burden of a crime that cannot be erased and even in leaving the village joined Akatsuki, an organization considered a threat to the village, to monitor its activities from the inside…thinking of the village…and of you. When the 3rd Hokage, who had promised Itachi he would watch over you, died Itachi immediately appeared in the village.
Madara; It was as a warning to the village elders…he thought of you above all…
Sasuke: Stop it!! It’s a lie! It’s all----
Madara: Because you are still alive!
*Sasuke makes more about to pass out/crazy freakout faces.
*Flashback to a scene in the fight between Sasuke and Itachi
マダラ「お前の眼はイタチのことを見抜けなかった。何一つ見抜けなかった」「だがイタチは…友 を殺し上司を 殺し恋人を殺し父を殺し母を殺した………だが弟だけは殺せなかった」
Madara: In the end your eyes couldn’t see through Itachi at all. Your eyes couldn’t see a single thing. But Itachi…he killed his friends…his superiors…his lover…his father…and his mother…but you were the only one he just couldn’t kill.
*Madara cuts Sasuke’s ropes with a kunai
マダラ「涙を流しながら感情を一切殺して里の為に同胞を殺した男が……お前を殺せなかった―― その意味がわ かるか？」
Madara: The man who while shedding a tear cut away all his feelings and killed his fellow countrymen for the sake of the village…couldn’t kill you. Do you understand the meaning behind that?
Madara: To him, your life was even more important than the village.
*Sasuke has his pretty boy face on again
「あいつは死んでもなおお前に力を授けるためお前に倒されることでうちは一族の敵を討った―― 英雄にお前を 仕立て上げるために」
Madara: In his dying he did it to pass his power on to you and in being defeated by you avenge the Uchiha clan—and make you a hero by defeating him.
*Flashback of scene where Itachi spits up blood
Madara: Even as he felt his own end coming from the disease eating away at him he took medication to keep living…for his brother who he loved most dearly…
*Flashback of Itachi’s death scene
*Then the candles in the cave/room go out.
*He had to die in front of you during your battle with him.
*Scene changes to Sasuke staring out at the sea.
He, for the sake of the leaf village and for the sake of you, wished to die as a criminal and a traitor.
He traded honor for a sullied name…he traded love for scorn...
…and even with all that, Itachi died smiling.
*Last panel is Sasuke
*Itachi kept you in the dark all this time to pass on the name Uchiha to you…
*That’s it for this week
*Comment from spoiler writer: I’m kinda shocked that Itachi might’ve actually had a girlfriend.
