Still some questions to be answered concerning itachi, for example, why did itachi have to kill shisui? intructions from madara?
Also, it seems that itachi was not aware about madara being alive until he was 13...therefore, itachi wasn't in akatsuki back then...so how in the hell did itachi beat oro, 10 years ago? By using simple logic, itachi would be just a 11 years old kid. why would he be an akatsuki at that age, when he didn't even know about the uchihas coup d'etat and madara?
So, is madara lying about some stuff, or is this a huge plot hole?
edit: IMO, madara is not telling the whole picture about this. Itachi had a reason to put amaterasu into sasuke eyes, and to attack immediatly madara..for what reason? cuz madara also killed the clan? but that wouldn't make any sense, since itachi was the one who asked madara to kill them. There has to be a bigger reason for that matter.
Btw, how can madara know all this stuff?
still many questions...
and by the way There's really nothing to be said anymore except for Madara's ambitions and those will be kept in the dark for a while I'd say. So my guess would be Madara asks whether Sasuke would be willing to join forces with him and strike back against Konoha and we'll get a cliffhanger as the scene switches to Naruto and Co arriving in Konoha. Oh and perhaps we might get some word of Hebi in the beginning, for example the end of the fight with Kisame saying goodbye and Zetsu offering to lead them to Sasuke.
My predictions updated:
- Team 7's final formation will be Naruto, Sai, Sakura and Sasuke
- Sasuke's "that jutsu" will be a katon-raiton combo
- WoF will be a better power-up than CS
-Madara was Shodai's opponent but got sealed away together with Kyuubi and when he finally broke free to get his revenge he was defeated by Yondi and next it'll be Naruto's turn (w00t, this one might actually be right)
- Madara will take control of 8 bijuu and either create some sort of uberdemon out of them or somehow else amp his powers with them
-The reason why Madara wants either Sasuke or Itachi is as a sacrifice for his plans
and Sasuke is primed for Madara to start feeding him false information. Madara has him questioning everything that he thought to be true. I wouldn't be surprised if Madara starts to reveal his ulterior motives, and Sasukes role in them as early as next chapter. Madara has basically said that his part in the Uchiha massacre was based on revenge. He helped kill Sasukes family out of his own desire for revenge. Why would Sasuke join him? He should want to kill him, not join up and attack Konoha. Maybe Danzou and the Oldies, Maybe even Tsunade as a descendant of the the 1st but, not his friends at Konoha.
