I think the Sasuke vs Killer Bee fight may have been Kishimoto's way to give Sasuke a form of Jugo's ability which is called sage transformation. In this thread I will call Jugo's ability curse mark since a lot of people may not know that Jugo's ability is called sage transformation.
Judging by what Karin says in the picture above it seems a enzyme in Jugo's blood may cause his ability the curse mark to activate.
Jugo gave Sasuke his flesh to repair Sasuke’s chest from Killer Bee’s attack which means Sasuke should have Jugo's enzyme.
Maybe Sasuke wouldn't need a seal on his neck to use the curse marks power if he can find a way to activate Jugo's enzyme without using a seal.
Do you think there's a chance Sasuke could get the curse marks power to activate?
I made this curse mark theory a while back on MangaStream forum but I've changed it over time and posted it here to see what people think of it now. The MangaStream forum was deleted.
Curse Mark + Sage Mode combination
If Sasuke can activate Jugo's enzyme to use the curse mark and if he learned sage mode then the curse mark could let him use sage mode for longer. As the curse mark would let Sasuke absorb natural energy when moving.
Naruto can't currently collect natural energy while moving but Kabuto can since he has Jugo's DNA. Kabuto can absorb natural energy while moving which lets him use sage mode for longer.

I think he would have gained it by now if that were the case. He's had his flesh in his body for what... months now? Likewise it was never the flesh of Juugo that spread the enzyme through the host's body. It was Orochimaru who found a way to give the enzyme transformative powers when injected into other people. So even if the enzyme is in Sasuke's bloodstream right now, the extra "something" put inside it during Orochimaru's experiments isn't in Sasuke, so he can't transform.
Also, the pill was only needed for the second level of Curse Seal. Sasuke displayed immediate changes in personality and strength/chakra right after Orochimaru placed the seal on him. He'd still have CS1 capabilities immediately after Juugo gave him part of his flesh, and yet we haven't seen that yet. So I'm gonna assume that no, he has no Curse Seal abilities anymore. Maybe Suigetsu's secret scroll will have a way to recreate the Curse Seal for him.
Think of it like a cake in that Sasuke has all the ingredients to use the curse mark but he needs to activate the ingredients like how you use heat to make ingredients into a cake (the ingredients = curse mark enzyme in Jugo's flesh).
My theory is rather complicated... but possible since Sasuke does have Jugo's curse mark enzyme.

Mmmhhhhh... cursed cake...
I doubt sasuke received a new CS from jugo. he should have already shown that. and I am sure he hasn't got it because jugo pointed out,mentioning,the CS originated from jugo. that's why I find unlikely that he has got it now.
It only suggests he's compatible with Juugo's genes; not necessarily that he's regained the Curse Seal.
Well, this could explain why he's one uber nuts. Maybe he didn't get the CS back, but it could be one of the reasons his sanity's taken the plunge.
but,while giving him his flesh/energy,jugo mentioned that he could do that because sasuke was compatible with the CS. so both of them knew about the CS and the flesh.if there had been possibilities that the CS would pass to sasuke again,they would have talked about that,imo. ALso,we haven't seen his symbols on sasuke's body yet,and he hasn't used that,as if he didn't have it...
I don't think sasuke will get a curse seal however how about a predisposition towards some form of sage mode? With the revelation that jugo's body naturally draws in natural energy without its side effects (as jugo does not turn to stone and apparently even while moving he can absorb it) it is entirely possible sasuke will naturally develop his own particular sage mode relatively quickly. Not sure what he would look like though, perhaps as no particular animal would have taught him he would be plainly a human sage or something.
