Madara gets his new eyes, and bye bye to the three friends from Amegakure.
Finally, a mask with two (or is it three) eye holes.
Madara nabs Nagato's Rinnegans and sets off back to his hideout. There is one final flashback featuring Konan, Yahiko, and Nagato starting with the time when Jiraiya was teaching them. Jiraiya taught the three to use flip cards at their hideout to guard against intruders and the trio and their gang eventually outgrew the old hideout. Back at Madara's hideout, Madara now sports a new mask and is wielding his war fan, and Zetsu has received the intel from Kisame. Madara then declares it's time to go capture the nine-tails.
Madara gets what he came for, and Konan joins her two best buddies in the afterlife. That was expected outcome from the start, but at least Konan put up a decent fight. The flashback was a formal send off for the trio and that's it for their run in the story. I suppose Kabuto can always bring them back using zombie-no-jutsu.
With a new set of eyes, Madara actually gave himself a makeover and retrieved his old war fan from the closet. Madara is more of a threat now that he has the Rinnegans. It was interesting that Madara continued to insist that the Rinnegans were his to begin with. Hopefully we'll eventually find out the story behind that claim. I'm also looking forward to how Madara and Kabuto will try to back stab each other.
