Re: Naruto 614
C'mon people, quit saying sakura has no purpose. Sure she's sucked as a character since the very beginning and only got progressively worse with time (har har), but there is 1 purpose she could be useful for...a sacrifice?!
With Obito declaring he wants to 'cripple them with despair', the mind fuckery is already underway. With Naruto being his main adversary, and the grudge he holds against kakashi, he's got to have something special in mind for them. Enter Sakura, the sacrifice. Obito impales her in the chest the same was kakashi did rin. Both Kakashi and Naruto suffer from the loss, and it sets up for Naruto a similar scenario to what Obito went through. This in turn allows Naruto to 'legitimately' (read: I've now walked in your shoes, so I understand where you're coming from) find a different answer or path then what Obito is currently doing, without sounding like a know-it-all brat.
Edit: Oh yeah, and Kishi either really dumbed himself down this chapter or Obito is planning something Madara doesn't know about. I'm referring to the dialogue in which Obito says the only reason madara doesn't nuke the place is because Obito would get killed too. Um, okay, did Kishi suddenly forget Obito can travel to an alternate dimension, derp derp.
