Ah, and should Itachi and The Sauce emerge victorious from this battle, it would just make my day if the conversation Itachi plans to have with his little brother includes mention of Kakashi. THAT would be awesome.
I hope they will be victorious, Itachiīs Izanami is quite kickass, hopefully Kabuto doesnīt have a secret weapon up his sleeve. Aaah, yesss...I still hope Sasuke remembers the scene where Kakashi tells him to forget about revenge (that was shortly before Sasuke left Konoha). Always listen to your sensei, Sasuke. ...
When I think of all the hatred Sasuke directed towards Kakashi during their last meeting ("I've wanted to kill you most of all", "An outsider like you has no right to that sharingan", etc.), something has to happen in order to make things right again, and Sasuke's the one who needs to speak up first. He's got some MAJOR apologizing to do.
I'm so rooting for Sasuke to call Kakashi "sensei," and to tell the elder that HE WAS RIGHT about the emptiness of revenge. For someone who is all about Uchiha pride, Sasuke has done a disservice to his clansman Obito by calling into question his gift to Kakashi. Ooooh! *fumes*
