Later, the show tries to tell fans that Sasuke does love her, but after these terrible displays, it's hard to believe. This behavior makes sense with his personality, but hardly hers. Nontraditional methods of affections make sense for them, but there is a level of nontraditional that nears on platonic. To be believable, the couple needs a few more ways of sharing their love and feelings, even if they are unique. Otherwise, they seem instead like friends with marriage and a kid.
Sasuke remains with Orochimaru, but Sakura and Naruto reunite after two years apart. The two rekindle their friendship and recreate Team 7 with Sai. Without Sasuke, Sakura spends most of her time with Naruto. She uses him to fill the void in her life, to the point she goes on dates with him. She knows his feelings for her, and knows she doesn't reciprocate them, but does it anyway.
With Sakura's devotion to loving Sasuke and Naruto's friendship, she shouldn't have done such a mixed singalled, cruel thing to her best friend. While he's protecting their village, he is neglecting his wife and daughter. The least he could do is write, send pictures back and forth, maybe know what his daughter looks like nowadays.
However, Sasuke doesn't even do that. Messages might be hard to send and at some times could jeopardize missions, but there had to be times that communication was possible. After all, he must being sending word back to Naruto about missions.
It makes no sense that Sasuke couldn't have sent his family sparse letters to show them his love and affection. Between parenting, going on missions, expressing feelings, all of it, Sasuke doesn't often say the things he should. This communication issue comes to a head during a moment in Sakura's Hidden Novel. There are rumors circulating that Sasuke could be evil again.
She wants to defend him, but she has to be honest that she doesn't know. She hasn't heard enough of him to answer the question honestly. Sakura's inability to know if the man she loves is evil again reveals a glaring flaw in their relationship, one that doesn't make much sense. The crush sprang from his looks and his abilities. She saw how he was in class and became infatuated.
The crush became nonsensical, though, when she chose to reject her best friend over him. When she obsessed about being on his team, his opinion, his growth and strengths as a ninja, and her thoughts always lingered to him.
Young Sakura even keeps her appearance how she think he might like it, not how she;d prefer. Her crush grew into a deeper, more balanced love, where Sakura starts to think more on her own. Her frienc mentions that she knows this is where the Uchiha couple had their first date.
Embarrassed, Sakura says it was only two and a half minutes.
However, she admits the place brings back fond memories of him. The place clearly means a lot to her, just because she was there with Sasuke. Yet, their first date barely lasted a few bits of dialogue. After war and the world nearly ending, fans would think Sasuke might want to enjoy the company of his new love. Sasuke never seems to grow a romantic side, though, and remains distant as ever. Though she insists their love is strong and they show their intimacy differently, she clearly struggles with several insecurities.
At the mere suggestion that she's not his wife, Sakura breaks down her own house with a punch to the ground. The question isn't even from some rival or enemy - it's from her frustrated and confused daughter. If their love is as strong as she insists, Sakura shouldn't be so easily sensitive about their relationship.
However, she clearly is, and it shows how fragile her connection sometimes is with Sasuke. Before her friendships, such as Ino and Naruto and ahead of her safety, trying to bring him back home and, later, to end his madness. On the opposite end, Sasuke never puts Sakura first. Ino dubs themselves Ino—Saku—Sai and they promise to keep each other informed of their findings.
Later on, Ino runs to Sai's home in order to inform him about Sakura's capture by Kido. However, when Ino arrives she becomes flustered at the sight of him in only his underwear, since Sai was taking a shower before her arrival. While he gets dressed, Ino contacts Kakashi and informs him of what's happened.
He advises not getting anyone else involved in the rescue as that might only provoke Kido to kill Sakura. He also informs them that the Fourth Raikage is contemplating a Kage Summit to discuss reports of Sasuke's activity. Sai and Ino go to one of Kido's hideouts and Ino senses the interior for Sakura's chakra.
She isn't there, but Sai decides they should see what intel they can get anyway. When the sentry, an acquaintance of Sai's, is unwilling to answer their questions, Sai forces Sakura's whereabouts from him by tickling him with a paintbrush.
They go to the hideout where Sakura is being kept on Sai's imitating bird and Ino initially struggles to maintain her balance but Sai comforts her causing her to feel a sweet warm sensation well up within her heart. When they arrive they find that Sakura has already escaped and is on the offensive.
Sakura, Sai, and Ino work well together despite being outnumbered. Sakura is drawn into a fight with the Sasuke impostor, who chokes her using his synthetic tailed beast cloak. Sakura breaks free and, as she beats him unconscious, warns him to never impersonate Sasuske again. This has the added benefit of revealing that the synthetic cloaks disappear when their user loses consciousness; Sai and Ino also discover that the cloaks have time limits.
Sai recommends they use this information to end the fight quickly. Ino, who was usually positioned near the back lines during close ranged combat situations was now instead supporting Sai with her taijutsu and healing him.
Sakura complements them on how well they work together as a duo.
