Help me devs, your my only hope

yeah... there goes one of my highest lvl companions... just like that... in a piece of bad writing, because: PLOT TWIST: HE HAD TO BETRAY YOU IN ORDER TO CONVINCE...THE ORDER...OF HIS SINCERITY... IN ORDER... TO INFILTRATE THEM...
Yawn... who writes this ???? Captain Obvious

Koth would have been such a better and more logical solution, since he betrayed you once AND took your main weapon and ran away afterwards once again... he d be the perfect scapegoat

I wouldn't be too upset anyway. We all see that something else is going on and I, for one, hope they are setting up for a good story arc with this character and a deeper LI story. I love the character, both as an LI and a friend, but this LI is a little lacking when compared to the vanilla ones, probably because you aren't with this one as long. This could shape up to be a very good story, hopefully with a sweet ending for an LI

First, the game is awsome! The second i think all those trolls for just being asses and dont want to play it, leave. And third why be upset do it 100 times more until you cant do it any more i have played this game for 7- 8 years i loved kotor 1, 2 and i hope if you have an old xbox you will do the story on xbox have a (or 24) dr pepper and try from the beginning. Relax and do some new characters do it over again and again. Cuz bro this is what people lack in this game, patience. And i am truly sorry if this game is something else than what you expected. You can guess how long i waited for this game? When did bioware released kotor 1 i mean i played that game at the time when everything like a big blob of paint. Then 2004 it came, "THE SITH LORDS" i had waited for 3 years for a "game update". So when all of you guys talk about waiting you dont have a clue what waiting is.. I mean God 3 years!! Itīs alot of characters alot of dark side vs. light side And then we player where stuck in a loop hole for 5 YEARS 5 years!! So donīt, dont speak ill of this game end of story!!!

In a sense it might not matter whether the "traitor" was genuinely betraying the Alliance or whether the traitor was acting as a 'rogue' double agent infiltrating the Order. From BW's perspective it would be quite easy to have the storyline be such that both of those possibilities have the same effect -- exposing serious weakness in the alliance and the loss of one of it's early leading members. The end result could be to eliminate The alliance from the SW:TOR storyline in the future a so many claim to want.

Just a thought.

I doubt they'd eliminate Theron without eliminating Lana. That, and female SW's literally had to choose between him and Quinn 5min before the Umbara FP. So yeah, Theron's not gone for good. Not to mention all the additional media that he stars in. He's a big player in their story.

Quite true. Of course in my little theory on story writing, it wouldn't really necessitate eliminating Theron (or Lana or ....) from the game. He/She could be around one way or another no matter what. There are problems with that though, just as their are problems for the Eternally Missing Companions. Be all that as it may, I usually am guilty of giving the BW writers far too much credit in future plots.
