Nor are we exactly sure of Danzo's age. It's what makes me question more whether my theory is right or wrong. :S
Danzou is 72 years old (or so says the databook). The hair style is not exactly the same, Tobi's is shorter.
I'd like to think Kishi did a pretty good one this weekend, but maybe that's just me...
Sasuke is good and he will stand and fight next to Naruto
or Konan has a sinister Doujoutsu....< Look at avatar....
Hopefully that Kushina is alive.
And Chouji's dad can't be the other team mate on Jiraiya's team because it's been stated that Choza was part of the previous Ino-Shika-Cho team. All three fathers of Ino, Shikamaru and Chouji's were a part of a team which is why their children are in a team together.
Zetsu is the true final viallain
Jiraiya is alive
Naruto hooks up with Ino
Sai dies(not much of a plot twist though)
Naruto and the Kyuubi separate with out Naruto being permanently dead
Madara is preparing Sasuke to get the EMS since immortality and this level of power will be needed for Sasuke to become the Jinchuuriki for the 7 captured bijuus; Madara will control Sasuke and all the bijuus to control the world...leading to:
Sage Naruto the 9 tails vs. Sasuke the 28 tailed Jinchuuriki
Edit: 28 tails is kind of ridiculous, thus the nickname... Sasuke, the Peacock of Doom!
the next plot twist can be konoha vs cloud village...how???....the cloud nins arrive at konoha and see the place in ruins...they report this to the raikage who orders an invasion to take over the fire country....resulting in the beginning of 4th ninja war... i think this will be awesome...

it would totally make my day if somehow kushina survived whatever crap she was going through. and sasuke came back from the dark side and people gave him crap about him leaving but then everyone loves each other in the end and konoha and the other Great Nations jump on the train of PLD [Peace, Love, and Dope]. that would be fricken awesome. LOL
I think the next big plot twist that's coming will involve Sasuke.
My best guess is that after Sasuke loses to Naruto/has his moment of clarity about where he went wrong(narrated by Itachi) Tobi will show up and body-snatch him or steal his eyes.
I'm also expecting some sort of plot twist that will boost Tobi's army a bit. My best guess along these lines is that one of the Daimyou will turn out to be allied with Akatsuki(probably Earth).

There's something fishy about Kirigakure. When the Daimyou's "met" you could see the Water Daimyou being really nervous and not very for the suggestion of an alliance at all. Honestly he looked scared to death. There has to be something about Kiri that we still don't know, there has to be a reason for his behavior. Kiri turning, or the majority of the village rebelling because they're really still following the Bloody Mist rituals would be great. I doubt the Mizukage is in on it as she seemed to be a nice person, unless she's trolling us all. But the rest of the village with a few exceptions could really be on Madara's side, or be under his control somehow.
As you Jammin, I've imagined scenarios where Sasuke will get majorly affected by a major plot twist. I have imagined scenarios where he does a Yahiko kind of thing and gets himself killed protecting Naruto against Madara, and another scenario where he gets backstabbed/killed off instantly by Kabuto right after his and Naruto's battle while both are still heavily exhausted. I'm not sure how much faith I have in latter scenario, but I still believe there's a huge possibility of Sasuke dying a "redeeming death" while he and Naruto are fighting Madara to protect Naruto from a lethal blow.
I see a traitor in Iwa more than in Kiri. The current administration seems to have expelled Madara and co. from there, or Madara and Kisame wouldn't be missing nins. As Ao's words sounded like, they're the foes of Yagura's puppeteer, which is Madara. I don't think they'll betray the alliance any time soon.
At most, the Daimyos will stop supporting their countries by arrangements done with Madara. But the Ninja Alliance will likely keep on living.
The Sasuke stuff playing out as you describe 3c is probably the most likely but that doesn't really feel like a plot twist to me. It's would just be kinda... going with the flow.
As for which great shinobi nation Daimyo will turn, i have no idea. Water, Earth, and Thunder all seem like reasonable possibilities. The water Daimyo was noticably uncomfortable with the idea of awarding more power to hidden mist but considering his country's past i don't find that particularly unusual. There are two reasons i singled out Earth as the center of my suspicions.
Reason 1: It seems like the rock nins have been set up to be the least warm and fuzzy of the bunch, so if something were to happen to Tsuchikage and the Daimyo was to name Tobi the new Tsuchikage they are the only ones i could imagine actually going along with it.
Reason 2: Earth is the only country we haven't seen Tobi taking hostile action against. He took a Jinchuriki from Thunder, took over the previous Mizukage, repeatedly attacked Fire country, and attacked Wind. So far we haven't seen him do anything to harm Hidden Rock or Earth country at all...which seems suspicious to me.

I think Kumo will likely betray the rest of the shinobi nations, Kumogakure is the most military driven shinobi nation of the manga and his actions speak louder than their words, they won't lose the chance to take Konoha and the rest of the nations out of equation. The runner up might be Iwakure as Jack said, but the next big plot twist in my opinion will be:
The Connection between Orochimaru and Danzou, the truth about Kabuto.
