Whacha gonna do when they come for you? Tell me whacha gonna do when they come for you.
For those of you that don’t get the reference, that was the catch phrase of the classic Cops series that started in 1989. Basically, the show followed a bunch of law enforcement officers around the U.S. as they ran around arresting people, and I couldn’t help but find myself thinking about it after this chapter. Because with Six Sage Madara suddenly appearing at Kakashi/Minato/Naruto/Gaara/Sakura’s side and an unknown adversary appearing at Sasuke’s side too, it was a chapter that fit perfectly with the lyrics. It’s just this time, it’s not the Cops/good guys coming for the bad guys, but the bad guys doing it instead.
And all things considered, this makes the chapter pretty decent considering how not much direct progression occurs. The quick flashback to Minato’s past was also a nice touch that fit well with the chapter title, and it continued the thematic progression of how he’s finally being given a chance to make a difference in his son’s life after being missing for almost it’s entirety. The mysterious entity who’s gathered around Sasuke and is currently “doing who knows what” to him adds an layer of intrigue to things as well—considering that almost everyone introduced at this point seems to have already been accounted for in some fashion. It makes you wonder who exactly the mysterious figure could be and whether or not they’re actually an enemy, and whether or not they might just be related to the “new jitsu” taught to Sasuke (forbidden revival anyone?). Or… it could just be Kabuto. Who knows. Guess we’ll see soon enough, won’t we?
