Eek, I knew it. Orochimaru's character has been ruined; he's just too soft now. I don't even care what Orochimaru said about people changing; it happens way too often in this manga and it's getting old. Still, I guess we now know what Sasuke's intentions are. It seems he wants to kill the other Bijuu to ensure that the old ninja system dies, although that seems pointless since we know that they get reincarnated even if they die. And what was with Sakura's fake smile?
