I know that you, Shrike and a few others had ya'll hopes very high for Itachi, but this is Naruto, a show where people like Neji gets jobbed by someone who's no one near his skill level and intelligence just because because of his perspective on life (not to mention Shikamaru defeating an immortal).
Yah.. You're right.. For now I just hope he doesnt become a shadow in Madara's light (can remember how the old saying is) or his future death will be short and unfair just like Orochimaru's..
I still hope Itachi has his own agenda..
