I *THINK* that Theron discovered yet another outside threat and is working with the "order" to learn more about it. Or, perhaps that "order" is the outside threat and he wants to infiltrate it or something like that.

It wouldn't surprise me if Theron's story parallels Revan's story in this respect.

After the Mandalorian Wars, Revan learned of the threat (Sith Empire) behind the immediate threat (Mandalorians), seemingly got corrupted but regained his right mind somewhat, and started a war not for the sake of conquest but to unite and strengthen the galaxy against the Sith Empire.
However, from the viewpoint of the Jedi and Republic, Revan had fallen.

Much like Theron's story, from our viewpoint, Theron has betrayed us or fallen. But, he is probably doing it "for the greater good" and said all this stuff about the alliance now being corrupt or something like that was just to "sell" his fall or betrayal to the PC. Because, for plot contrived reasons, he couldn't just take us aside in private and say "Hey, I need to go check this super secret thing out before it gets out of hand. I won't be back in time for dinner, and don't wait up for me."
This is what irks me about how this whole story was written. It felt rushed and put together for shock value. There is no valid reason as to why he couldn't explain in private what was happening, involve the person he cares abouts, instead of going rogue. Yea sure we see that he feels bad or whatever, but it also depends on how you end it and the message he sends after. The more I try and think on it the more I think he is betraying our characters. I sure hope that is not the case. Plus if it's true about people saying the alliance falls and it goes back to imp vs repub then that is going to stink. I wasted time getting both sides influence up. Theron was a level 50 for example. So what will happen then? So many unanswered questions and I hate having to wait.

The writers should put together several story endings for us to choose from. One reason why I always loved the imperial agent story was because of the multiple ways you could take your character through the story. It would be nice if they could be creative like that again.
