Talking + fighting! By jove, Kishimoto is onto something here. Much better than his usual method of having the characters standing around talking, throwing in some flashbacks, and then starting the fight at the very end of the chapter.
I'm glad we finally got confirmation about Itachi's actions during the Uchiha massacre. Gotta love it when the plot moves forward! Though I'll admit, I'm a little disappointed Madara was telling the truth. I'd been expecting that he'd twisted the truth somewhat--seems more like a Madara thing to do. However, we may get a surprise out of him yet. It's my pet theory that the Uchiha was never planning a coup, but Madara manipulated things to make it look as though they were. (The story keeps mentioning how Shisui's sharingan could control people's minds, so I think something like this is possible.) The benefit in this is that Konoha stops looking like the bad guys for killing a bunch of people and Sasuke can stop being angry at them.

On another note, I thought Sasuke got Itachi's eyes transplanted. How does Itachi have eyes, let alone using Sharingan and Makengyou?
LOL. That was the same question I asked on why Zabuza + the 7 swordsmen had their swords when they revived, when clearly Suigetsu has the head chopping cleaver and Killer Bee has Samehada. You could also wonder about Pain still having his rinnengan when Madara stole it from his body after he died. I guess it's all part of the awesomeness that is Kabuto's hax jutsu.
If you were paying attention you would have seen Zabuzas sword and all the other swords returned to their Masters at that time. This is shown when suigetsu couldnt locate his sword. Also Kisames sword didnt teleport during that fight prolly due to it being in Bee's possesion where as Suigetsu had dropped it when he freed himself.
