Before the Uchiha massacre, Itachi meets Obito(camouflaged with a mask as either Tobi or Madara) in the forest. Obito tells Itachi to keep his eyes closed while killing Uchiha people and Itachi agrees saying "I don't have any other choice!". Why does Obito tell Itachi to keep his eyes closed, and why does Itachi obey?

  • Welcome to Anime & Manga! Would you mind adding an episode number or manga chapter for reference? – Wondercricket Feb 27 at 13:43
  • @Wondercricket Can't get my hand on actual episode number as I was watching a random video about Shisui Uchiha and Itachi story while coming across some clips. But this image is one scene of it- japaneseanime.fandom.com/wiki/… – Palash Bansal Feb 27 at 15:05
  • in the manga, there was no conversation between Itachi and Obito. that's all I can say about it – YO_USA Feb 28 at 8:22
  • I'm not well-versed in Naruto, but surely the obvious answer is "Obito didn't want Itachi to witness his entire family getting slaughtered"? – F1Krazy Feb 28 at 13:33
