No More Lies
This story continues in the newest cinematic, where Sylvanas offers Anduin a bargain to willingly serve the Jailer as he would be a formidable weapon for their side. Anduin, as expected, refuses and demands some answers from Sylvanas. In a moment of apparent honesty (although one never knows with Sylvanas), she tells Anduin that nothing is fair and she wants to break this predetermined cycle, expressing bitterness at both her chosen path in life as well as the Arbiter choosing paths for everyone in death.
Sylvanas has certainly had an unfair existence, turned into a banshee against her will, then sentenced to the Maw after her death in Icecrown, so it's understandable why she wants to tear the entire system down. She believes she is fighting for a true chance at free will, although as Anduin points out, looking around at his dismal prison, it's a bit dubious if the Jailer has good intentions. So far the plan has entailed the destruction of Teldrassil, a bloody faction war, and the capture and torture of Azeroth's faction leaders--so even if the plan is ultimately noble, it's built on a flawed foundation. Even after her explanation, it's unclear exactly how the Jailer would create a better system for all--especially with the speculation he's orchestrated many cosmic wars with the help of the Nathrezim.
So what do you think of Sylvanas' motivations? Do they make her past actions more understandable? Is she in the right for wanting a truer chance at Free Will, or is she being used by the Jailer, whom Blizzard explicitly stated was a main villain of the expansion? Or will Sylvanas turn on the Jailer, once she has enough power and no longer needs the Jailer for her goals?
