So wait...Who is Sasuke talking to
[/url] after saving Naruto?
I'm hoping he's talking to Obito...which would mean that Sasuke saves Naruto because he wants to be the one to kill Naruto!
Pretty sure it was Obito he was talking to. Naruto was behind him when he said it, so the only one he could have been speaking to was Obito.
Yes, I agree; Sasuke probably saved Naruto because he wants to be the one to kill him. I think it was significant that the picture of Team 7 symbolically slashed in half right over Naruto's face and not down the middle. Down the middle and Sasuke would have been talking about the past in a more generic way. But since it was specifically Naruto who got cut out of the picture, then his line about erasing the past also had to be referring to Naruto.
