Knowing Studio Pierrot and the new authors of Boruto, this can very possibly happen.
SP already made the clone, and when the she was introduce to the manga a few chapters back she made clear she was going to fight Salad over who gets Bolt. Not actually fighting more who will win his heart. So, they have already set up the basis for another bloody pairing war; this time completely intentional.
Ironically, it seems BoruSara is the most popular pairing in Boruto. So I HOPE they go with this!
It not like there are that many pairings in the sequel, or for that matter many interesting characters to pair up.
SS is the larger of the two factions left, more importantly they're the ones more likely to pay for products to support the franchise. If they throw SS's child under the bus for a Hinata clone they are going to leave, and then all will be left are the worthless Hinata fans; who have failed for four years now in holding up the series.
Then I call hypocrisy on everyone who viciously shipped NH and are now shipping BoruSara instead of BoruSumi !!!
nH/SS could convince themselves that their pairing were planned all along. They use that fact that Hinata was in the first episode for nH, and imagine that it was Sasuke for the bench scene from 3. They can't do that with BS. BS has been set up since the end of Naruto. They have had four years to accept BS is going to happen, they are not going to just suddenly change because SP decided to create BS last year.
You're probably gonna hate this...To put it another words. The fans that support Salad are like the fans that read the Naruto manga, while the ones the support Sumire are the fans that watched the anime. Yes, the BS fans are now in the same position we were in with Naruto. I hope they suffer the same fate.
Well, SP will probably disappoint even more people. Though I doubt they will be anywhere as disappointed as we were considering Boruto pretty much sucks overall.
Naruto was overall a good manga/anime, until the end. Boruto is not, and it will never have what Naruto once had.
