Re: 495 Predictions / Spoilers
If I were Kishimoto, I'd make Kisame not only kill Bee, but brutalize him. This will first off, not only make things far more desperate for the Shinobi Alliance, but also drive Naruto to that edge, where his darkness lives. He then will have to struggle with that and begin to understand that he has to be in the eye of the Kyuubi's storm, if that makes sense. Totally calm, wielding a massive amount of power, but being as tranquil as possible (so many Star Wars references come to mind...).
But since I am not, I expect Naruto and Bee's training to continue, with Kisame versus Bee to happen in the near future. Hopefully... these chapters are boring. As much as I dislike Sasuke, sometimes his brutal nature brings a needed flow to the series. Naruto always responds, he never initiates.
