for all we know, as we learn more of Sasuke's motives, we may see him have further interactions with Hebi..... and Kabuto returning isn't soo farfetched. Although i think since Oro is still tied to him... we will probably see him a bit later. I wouldn't be surprised if Root returns this year with another motive targeting Sasuke and we see him become further and further distanced from everyone as his path changes in the shinobi world to something more bad than good.
