  • et Han of Astora

    Anything to support the Thalmor's downfall

  • COOKIE WOKE

    I always tricked her just because it was easier than fighting 4 guys at once in a cave.

  • Yum vs. Yuck

    I think i remember killing all the Alik’r warriors because they killed my dog and then i killed Saadia because i was annoyed that she sent me there and got my dog killed.

  • Old Longfellow

    You make a compelling case with evidence and reason.....however, saadia has bobs and vagene and they also make a compelling case

  • jjfajen

    My favorite line of dialogue in this quest is when Sadia pulls out an iron dagger and says,"I'll cut you in half!" While I'm wearing steel plate armor.

  • AskingMaaike

    4:23 At first she was all surprised that the Alik'r were in the city and then suddenly she heard one of them just got locked up? 🤨

  • mimi love

    What if they were lovers, one betrayed the other and it became a chase? 😂 So they would both just lie 😁

  • Marcell Kunics

    7:20 The guard is savage af

  • Carlos Huiskens

    And yet the greatest assassins are those who don't seem like assassins and make you think they are just innocent people being hunted down or make you think they are just honest warriors hunting a criminal. The question if Saadia is guilty or not is one that is never going to be proven no matter how many theory videos are created on the subjected which is why its one of the hardest choices in Skyrim. Ultimately there is no right or wrong choice because you can't trust Saadia because she can't prove what she's saying and the same goes for Kematu. You simply can't accept the word of a random Alik'r warrior who you don't know anything about. You said he doesn't seem or act like a Assassins but of course he doesn't. You wouldn't be a good assassins if you couldn't maintain a cover. And a assassins isn't going to outright reveal his intentions. Just look at Nazir from the Dark Brotherhood. He looks exactly like a redguard warrior but he's an assassin for the brotherhood. This simply points out that looks can be deceiving which is why you can't trust Kemate and Saadia to tell you the whole truth which in turn means that you'll never find out who's guilty. But its still a nice try though!

  • THE CABLE-GUY

    Saadia is actually a real Arabic name (I know this because that’s the name of my friend’s sister) and it’s not pronounced sayda it’s pronounced saa-dei-a, just wanted to point that out

  • Logan Y.

    I side with Kematu usually, he seems wayyy to honorable and just overall nice to be an assassin. Also, his story makes more sense. But, I have to say, and I wish there was a dialogue option for this, the Alik’r in jail really favors Saadia’s story more. He makes the Alik’r seem much more radical and deceiving, saying, “i shouldn’t have been caught” implying the Alik’r were doing something bad enough to be put in jail. He also says that the second the Dragonborn goes to Swindler’s Den the Alik’r will kill him, which sounds a lot more like a group of violent assassins to me. When you get to the cave, you kill lots of bandits, and then finally meet the Alik’r and Kematu. Kematu says, “You have proven your strength in battle, and there does not need to be anymore bloodshed today.” This implies that Alik’r actually either had a pact or something of some sort with the bandits, as bandits attack almost anyone on sight- but the Alikr knew of their existence and were left unharmed. Also, the way the line, “there does not need to be any more bloodshed today” is phrased just feels like Kematu had met some of this bandits. It is possible that Kematu knew that the Dragonborn was powerful, maybe powerful enough to kill him and the Alik’r and decided to make peace, make up his own story, and play along so there is a chance that the Dragonborn helps Kematu reach his goals instead of the Dragonborn becoming a roadblock.Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of holes in Saadia’s story but all the Alik’r in the game (with the exception of Kematu, since I hypothesize he is acting) are very radical, and often invading if not violent.

  • river rat

    i used to turn her in, but after installing the mod 'amorous adventures', i now have very good reasons to save her.

  • CDV3

    But evidence against Kematu is kind of stacked too. Why would honorable warriors like the Alik’r form a pact with bandits and set up, deep in a cave (why not just camp out near falkreath or somewhere?)? Secondly, Kematu clearly expected the bandits to be more than enough to handle any intruders who came looking for him and his men, but when he saw that the Dragonborn could tear through them like nothing, he quickly decided to try and talk his way out of a fight. If the Dragonborn does decided to attack him and his men, of course they’ll act in self defense, but Kematu knew from the second the Dragonborn walked in that he was a dead man if he couldn’t use persuasion. Perhaps after Taneth was captured by the Aldmerri Dominion (Not due to Saadia), the elves gave the Alik’r warriors of the City-State the choice to either fight for them or be executed, so of course dishonest men like Kematu would rather sell out than die. As for the ending when Kematu paralyzes her to take her back to Hammerfell, he could simply be acting to keep up his ruse to you (though this is a stretch).For me personally, I love sword fights and the Alik’r are great swordsman. I can never pass up the chance to fight them. Although when I’m playing a thief, I usually double-cross Saadia.P.S. your game looks amazing, what mods are those?

  • Alex Hoge

    Makes me wonder if Kamatu isn't a masochistic ex-lover of Saadia's with a lot of clout among the Alik'r.. it feels personal beyond cultural pride

  • Sindre Bjørnhjell

    I think your theory here is right, but your reasoning is really weak.Up until you talk to Kematu after he captures Saadia, her story makes sense. If she's lying and manipulating, what stops him from doing the same?What I felt was off in your delivery in this video is that you've obviously made up your mind about the conclusion from the beginning. I thi think it would be better if you bring the viewer along in discovering that your conclusion must be the correct one.

  • Gallent Bristle

    I still believe Saadia could be telling the truth. If she was being honest, Kamatu would still be upset if you killed her since he was supposed to “drag her back to Hammerfell for an execution.” And as for the sneaking the wealth out, it could easily be that she wanted to avoid her family knowing where she went, or that her family did help her but helped her to sneak it out of the city. Nothing in this video necessarily means that she’s lying.

  • Jonathan Yanesa

    The game is almost 8 years old but someone's still doing reviews/gameplays for it.That's how you know if a game is golden 😍

  • Jodie Palmer

    Perhaps she is still a spy for the Aldermi Dominion in Whiterun. Because where do people go to socialize? At the local tavern. Plus, where do people who don't own houses go to stay for a night or even a couple days? The local tavern. She could be keeping tabs on the local people and strangers who happens to come in to Whiterun and those that stay at the tavern. Thus, she could be setting up the City of Whiterun as she did for Taneth. She may not even be a Noble Woman as she claims but a humble bar maid that uses her skills and talents to get what she wants.

  • Dr. Sun

    Can you try to pronounce the names correctly?The game pronounces the names for you, just copy that.

  • SHEEPYSHOEGER

    Saadia said constantly throughout the quest continues to pronounce it sayda

  • OD-X

    I have to take some umbrage with some of your conclusions. 1. You say why would anyone fleeing the Aldmeri to flee to Skyrim, but where else would someone flee. The Nords despise the Dominion and the Concordant. So I feel that is the best place to hide. Yes they are present in Skyrim, but the Dominion is despised. I mean in Whiterun, even though they side with the Empire Balgruf allows the open worship of Talos. Second you talk about how manipulitive she is, but Kematu is every bit as manipulative. The Alikr are just thugs, maybe not assassins, but they have been paid to hunt her down. And you say because they are suppose to return alive the are more honorable, but what if that is what there contract calls for, because the Dominion that controls Tenith, want to torture her for more knowledge on the resistance. I mean that is every bit as plausible as your theory. As to sending mercenary Alikr versus sending a Dominion assassin, Aldmeri are not allowed to move openly in Skyrim. I think the outcome and guilt is specifically left ambiguous by Bethesda. Probably because they want you to question your decision no matter.

  • lalybum

    He is lying too, if she sided with the High Elves she would run to them, not to Skyrim, specially with her habilities to hide herself. I think there is a lot more into this. Her scars were probably made on her face intentional, she was probably captured at some point and someone did this to "destroy her beauty" since she looks like a woman who cares a lot for it.I don't think any of them are good people, the prisoner talked as if this Kematu was like a Devil. There is a lot of possibilities, but her version and his versions are both lies, she could have fled from a marriage for example. Or she could have killed some influential person, like a man with status, this would count as treason and would explain her scars too.Maybe some rich douchbag tried something funny with this woman, and since she is not easy going she attacked him, and received a scar, than she killed him out of fury, and since he was influential his family sent Elite Soldiers after her. This also explains WHY THEY WANT HER ALIVE, if she just sided with the Dominion they could capture her, turture her to death and bring her head back there is no need to judge someone already proven a traitor, but they don't want this, they want her alive to probably bring her to someone else do something with her. Like some family member wanting revenge? If she sided with the Dominion it would be impossible for her to flee from Hamerfell since she would become enemy of literally everyone there. I really think someone with influence wants her back to kill her in a not good way, my bet is what I said but can be other reason too. But the Fairy Tale told by both all lies.And one of the main points that tells he is lying he mentions a Bounty, he would not receive a bounty for capturing someone acussed of treason, he would probably be a National Soldier, but he isn't he is a Mercenary, and by his clothes a really expensive Mercenary. And she is not a calculting woman as he make her sound, since she trusts you way too easy.And his final phrase saying you should not be fooled that you are "better than that" that's clearly making fun of your face LUL

  • Scott Hadden

    Most of the "evidence" for both sides are almost entirely circumstantial, there is no clear cut, this side is guilty. For one, an Assassin is simply a hired killer, the fact that the Alik'r are willing to shack up with bandits kind of says they either have very low living standards or aren't exactly loved by the law themselves. Why would the Alik'r, which if what you're saying are a mercenary company, hire bandits, who will flip on them for a better offer, to protect/conceal their location, which you can actually hear two bandits discussing if you remain undetected. The place they live is also quite clearly meant to make you distrust the Alik'r, Swindler's Den. A swindler being someone who cons you out of a prize or reward, and a den being a home, so the Alik'r basically live in a house for conmen. Further, if Saadia really did sell out Taneth, her first port of call would be Cyrodiil, not Skyrim, because a) it's geographically closer than the closest city in Skyrim and b) would make her unable to be sent back to Hammerfell, as Cyrodiil is a stable region of the Empire, and Hammerfell is no longer part of the empire, it has no influence, even mercenaries in the employ of returning someone there would be prevented from doing so.

  • Fuchs Raeude

    I always side with Saadia. Better than doing the work for this incompetent, bearded, ugly band of sand fleas that think they can harass and boss around Skyrim's people! Even if Saadia was guilty, she can't do any damage now that she is on her own. Plus, I make up my own reality about what is right (when there is no definite proof)! PLUS..., she is eye candy!

  • Jaron Krüger

    I think it is impossible to make the "right" decision in this quest. We simply do not get enough information for that.Both stories are plausible in their own way; the pros of Kematu`s are very well outpointed in this video, but Saadia have also some pros: at first she manipulate us to follow her in her room, where she threten us whith a dagger - well, if you had to run away from your homecountry and are hunted by assasins it is just logical to become paranoide and train your self to get manipulative. Also, at least in the synchronisation of my country (I`not from Amarica or Britain <- my excuse for the propably very bad grammar in this comment), it became clear from the sound of her voice, that she are in very big fear. So her behavier in our first meeting seems legit to me.The question why she fleed to skyrim could be explained,too. Maybe all other roads were monitored by her hunters and skyrim was the only choice or she though nobody would suspect her to hide direct under the eyes of the thalmor. We have just to less information here to dicide.Another point in the video was that if Kematu would be an assasin he would stand not with six other assasins, because he would act, just like the members of the dark brotherhood, alone. On the other hand when we find him with those six soldiers we are in his temporary HQ and in every HQjust like in the HQ of the dark brotherhood it is normal to find more than just one or two people. My last point is the possibility of getting manipulated by Saadia. This is possible - after all in our first meeting she manipulated us to follow her in her room- but just as earlier in this far to long comment outpointed her behavier seems reasonible. And it could be also possible that not Saadia but Kematu manipulate us to get a possibility to capture his victim outward of the city. When he said to Saadia, that her ongoing manipulation have found an end, he could have said that because he have to act in our presence Saadia´s role of a liar. Before she could defend hherself he paralyzes her. So we never were able to hear her explaination or defence on this accusation.How I said in the beginning it is impossible to say with 100% certainty who is liing and who is not. The finale proof is missing and so should`t say something like "Saadia/Kematu is guilty", beacuase in the end it is the tasc of the player to decide this for himself.If somebody made it this far: my honest apologize for a propably very bad spelling and grammar and a far to lon comment

  • MiniKitty Gaming

    I always side with Kematu. It's faster.-Talk to Saadia-Go to Rorikstead-Talk with The Ali'kr-Bring her to stables-Done

  • Pain

    Why are you unable to pronounce 'Saadia' correctly? They even say it in-game. Do you have some sort of disability?

  • Satou Kazuma

    Not really a hard decision in my perspective... Considering how there’s white knights everywhere, that gets tempted because of her gender

  • Is it me you looking for?

    I side with Saadia every playthrough for several reason:1. That chick is hot2. There's a Bosmer named Malborn that help you sneak your gears in to the Thalmor Embassy during the main quest. If you manage to help him escape alive, you will encounter him later at the New Gnisis Cornerclub in Windhelm. He's trying to find a way fleeing to Morrowind but a Khajit assassin being sent by the Thalmor camping waiting for him at the Windhelm main entraince. He askes the Dragonborn for help. The assassin wearing exactly like a typical Khajit drug dealer.I trusted Malborn. The case is similar with Saadia's, but the difference is that you already know about Malborn's story.3. It's Skyrim, there is a bunch of strangers running in to your land wearing weapons trying to kill another stranger asking for your help, will you let it happen?

  • lalo 1245567899413

    Saadia was the exiled queen of hammerfell, when the aldmeri invaded hammerfell, they infiltrated the hammerfell government and accused her of treason without reason, taking over the government.

  • Rocket League Watafak

    IF SHE BREATHS SHE`S A T H O T

  • Dexter Nelson

    Lol. My comment explaining why she's innocent keeps getting deleted. Touchy, touchy

  • Jovantay Zyx

    I choose to keep Saadia safe because she's literally one of the only female red guards in the game and the red guards are sexy as hell and the strongest race besides the argonians

  • The Third Crusader

    Both sides lie to some extent.Let's take Saadia at her word. She spoke out against the Dominion. The Alik'r are assassins. She's on the run. She's a no be of house Suda in Hammerfell.That makes no sense because the Dominion wouldn't hire the Alik'r, because they invaded them and were sent packing. The Alik'r are, at most, mercenaries, but no matter how much money they were offered they wouldn't work for the Dominion. Besides, it would be more cost effective for the Dominion to send out a hit squad of their own. If your a noble wouldn't you be under protection from your house, or at least be able to hire some help, like, say... THE ALIK'RNow let's assume Kematu is telling the truth. Saadia is a traitor and sold Taneth out to the Aldmeri Dominion. They are bounty hunter here to capture her.They are in Swindlers Den surrounded and guarded by paid off bandits. While it's not entirly honorable it doesn't mean they're evil either. Saadia sold Taneth out, why go to Skyrim? Would she not seek the protection of the Dominion? Something doesn't make sense, either Saadia is lying about them being assassins or Kematu is lying about Saadia selling Taneth out....that or Saadia has a limited sense of self preservation.I usually kill Kematu AFTER telling him to meet me at the Whiterun stables. There I can take him on alone and get around 200 gold from his corpse and receive the 500 or so gold from Saadia. 700 in total 1,000 if you let Kematu go through with it, kill him, and calm Saadia. I just never have a calm spell or the magicka to cast it. Plus, I took out some sellsword competition. For I am also an Alik'r Mercenary.

  • equesdeventusoccasus

    I think that they both are lying, but with elements of the truth in their tales. She does sound and act like a noble. On the other hand if she really was the traitor he claimed, Kematu's orders would have allowed for the possibility that she wouldn't come willingly and would fight to the death rather than return to face justice. Nobody would care if the traitor died along the way. Finally why did Kematu hit her with a paralysis spell when they met perhaps to keep her from running, but he made no move to put her in restraints before she came out of it (and those spells are always short lived.) It's almost as if he simply didn't want her speaking while you were around. Finally, when you hand her over, he says they can finally return home. When you kill her in front of him he says you ruined everything.If he and his men were sent off by a parent(s) to retrieve their daughter, especially if said parents blamed Kematu, for their daughter's disappearance, like say if she eloped with one of his men, the parents would be likely to say don't return without her safe and sound. If the city fell while they were away chasing her Kematu might blame her for the fall because he and his men could have made the difference. If in a previous encounter, Kematu killed her love, she would feel justified calling him and his men assassins. Given standard Elder Scrolls in game books and tales, this is a very likely scenario. It also plays well with the, "which side do you choose," aviance Skyrim has. It places her in a better light than Kematu. I say this because, from the Redguard point of view (referencing the description Trayvond from Oblivion gave of their culture's view of magic users being similar to the Nords) Kematu probably would not have been popular in Hammerfell. Magic wasn't forbidden to a Redguard, but they were despised if they used it. Making the Alik'r very unusual Redguards. One, if one was Redguard, might even think that if they would stoop to magic use, how far from assassins could they be? Especially if you were in love with someone that a magic using warrior killed.

  • Fatguyatwork26

    Never trust Saadia... And most importantly Never Trust a Lusty Argonian Maid

  • beepbeep

    Its literally just come out that Zenimax has trademarked the name "Redfall", and its fact that since Morrowind, Bethesda have been putting hints/easter eggs in previous games about what the next TES game will be about. If this is to be believed and TES 6 is really set in Hammerfell as the name "Redfall" suggests, could this be the hint/easter egg we've been looking for? That this game is about Hammerfell and the Thalmor?

  • Archer Langfield

    The Alikr are hella shady. They act like mercenaries. They hide out in "SWINDLERS" Den. Nothing about what they say make sense, but that's just me.

  • Bjeh King

    I always knew Saadia was evil from the start. But she's so sexy, I take her side on every play-through.

  • PREPFORIT

    YOU are a Honourable Warrior Sir ESO !

  • Graveside Poet

    I let her live. I’m an orc: she payed me to help her, so I helped her. Right or wrong dosent come into it

  • Pandora Night

    I've actually never seen the interaction between the whiterun gurd and redguards. I've just seen redguard worriors every once in a while and "oh cool, them" then continued doing whatever

  • Connor Nicholas

    For some reason, whatever mod or mods you're using makes the facial animations poorer.

  • Jacob Riché

    I always side with her even if I know she's guilty. She's a citizen of Whiterun and I protect my own. Plus I like her service at the Bannered Mare. Eh I've killed for less.

  • Midori Dad

    I always felt she was guilty because of the two stories. The Warriors looking for her story added up way too good. I kill her every time.

  • hakim

    Since bethesda is re-releasing skyrim they should make the visuals and graphics like this

  • Connor Nicholas

    Siding with the Alik'r is faster, but siding with Saadia makes the quest's story longer and more enjoyable. Even so, I think I might go against Saadia next time.

  • Alexandru von Carstein Zarovich Cantacuzino

    Does not feel right sending a beautiful woman away

  • Gregory Auger

    But wait, didn't taneth fall to the aldmeri? If she's brought back to face justice for her treason, Is it from The Aldmeri who are running the show in Taneth?

  • Helder Julio

    I always knew She was guilty, and the hammerfelt "Assassin's" was the right side. However Skyrim have soo low beautiful redguard females, even with scarrs in the face. When i Saw saadia First time, before that mission beginns, ive fall in love of her. Painfull, making that mission, i was enable ot killing or givin her to the redguards. So, ive sided with her, knowing She was a bad girl. After the conclusion ot the mission and the dead of the redguards, i have used One mod who made her a strong near immortal companion. She beginns to Share my adventures. Long after i used other mod of marriage. Yeap, i had married with saadia. Finally i used a third mod, who clean her face of that sexy scarrs. My marriage present to her. And She is the most beautiful and sexy woman in Skyrim...even if she was bad as a snake girl. Now, me, Saadia, Lucia and Sofie, we are a happy family!...(alternative ending).

  • Commander Xananymous

    You know what is the easiest choice in this quest.....kill both of them after you get a reward from one of them

  • Ryan Gessler

    Unfortunately I'm extremely poor buddy but I love you. And wish the best for you. I'm not really poor buddy,I just can't give you money for something that I myself don't have time to do and would love to. Tell you what. I'm working on something extremely huge right now seriously. I'm on track to make 260k this year. I'm a entrepreneur and the following year will be 480k and in 2020 I'll be on track to gross over a million usd. When that happens I'll build your dream game room with a budget of 60k usd but you have to invite me over for dinner otherwise that deal isn't a option. Seriously I'm not joking about the situation. Now it's going to be up to you to decide what to do in your actual real life.

  • jtomally9681

    Personally, I think Saadia is innocent. The whole thing is a twisted work from both ends.

  • Emojiii

    I've realised that in my Skyrim gameplay there are no female guards!!!

  • evil morty

    What's the name of that graphics mod and is it on xbox

  • Fuchs Raeude

    Kematu could also play a role while you're standing there (about Saadia being manipulative) for my ears. Who says that Saadia's family would not disown her if she has betrayed the city of Taneth. Plus, travelling with bodyguards makes it much harder to remain undetected. That would just be unwise.

  • Petra Whalley

    It's so lol when you call her sayda then call her saadia and it's really funny. U always say things the wrong way and say the wrong things. But I makes me laugh. Love ur Vids bro they r so good

  • Matthew Hilliker

    I still think Kematu could be lieing at the end. He says they won't kill her but he could be saying that to stop you from alerting the guards.If they were going to kill her they wouldn't do it in plain view of the city guards. Especially since the guards are already against the Ali'kr in the first place. So they lie to you, say she will not be harmed. You go on your marry way while they take her away to a secluded area and kill her.And the reason why he gets mad at you for killing her is that all this time was wasted effort. They spent so much time planning out how to kill her and then here you come slashing your sword at a defenseless woman like a maniac.I mean you'd get pretty upset too if you spent a lot of time planning something only for it to be for nothing.

  • MarvelDCFanGal

    Am I the only one who decided to save Saadia simply because I wanted the loot in Swindler's Den?

  • Pratim Gupta

    Side with Alikr and Stormcloaks. Bring in the Argonians as Support.Time for another Alliance war

  • spacep1rate

    I usually ignore this quest, it's fairly short, mundane, and lacks payoff. Seems like it was intended to be fleshed out more (I mean the way it was implemented implied it would be deeper than 3-step objectives, practically could have gone under misc). However, I think the ambiguity was intentional, and not necessarily bad.

  • Lame Guy

    The thot pulled out a knife on me so I turned her in

  • DJ MK

    You could get both 1,000g by killing them both but you would need a spell to calm everyone to do so

  • Adski Harvey

    Hammerfell would be sick as ES6 or ES7 I can picture it and it would be amazing

  • uumlau

    My head-canon is that both sides are lying. Both sides claim to be against the Aldmeri Dominion. Saadia/Iman is THE person who caused an entire city to fall?! I really doubt that. And if she were to have done that, she clearly didn't get paid enough.Instead, I think what is going on is politics between noble houses in Hammerfell. One possibility is that there was some kind of minor offense, such as Saadia refusing the advances of some noble scion, and he uses his influence to fake charges and ruin her life. In such a scenario, the mercenaries are "honest", but their actions are an unjust consequence of the politics.Another possibility, a bit more likely in my estimation, is that some noble wants Saadia for his own purposes (could be anything from wanting her as a concubine or perhaps she knows something critical and that knowledge would be lost if she is killed) and has hired mercenaries to enact his will. I think this is a bit more likely because the mercenaries aren't approaching the problem as a diplomatic issue. Skyrim is no fan of the Aldmeri Dominion, so it should be easy to make diplomatic advances to the Jarl and enlist the Whiterun guard to help out. But no, they manage to make themselves entirely unwelcome by sneaking in acting more or less like thieves or bandits and not as the representatives of noble houses in Hammerfell. The only reason that they would fail to do so from the outset is that they know their story won't hold up if anyone makes an official inquiry.Saadia's lies come across to me like the lies that an abused woman tells. Her beauty plus her scars plus her pulling out the dagger add to this impression of mine. Note that a dagger is a pathetic weapon against a warrior or mage who wants to kill her, but is EXTREMELY effective as a weapon against someone trying to rape her. Kematu's lies come across to me as someone trying to sound more official than he really is.That all said, I think that this still being debated almost 7 years after the game was released tells us that this quest was designed JUST RIGHT. The writers purposefully don't give you enough information. People are as likely to believe one side as the other. You have to use your own judgment, and there is nothing else in the game that nails down what the "correct" interpretation is. This is why people still play this game.

    If you play Elder Scrolls Online and are doing the Hammerfell quests, you shall learn they are the protectors of Hammerfell. Though Skyrim came out long before Online, it does give a hint that she lied as her family can also be discovered there. After playing some of the quest on Online, you are almost certain betraying her is the correct action, as you shall learn Alik'r are not bought but fight and protect with honour. The prisoner hints at this too. MY guess, the reward is simply a secondary thought to them, their true motive was to bring Justice, honour though doesnt allow them to murder someone as Skyrim shows. They were going to bring her to justice not murder her, which fits their lore.Edit: Bethesda Studio normally puts in a hint of next game location and plot.(Inside the prior game). Skyrim hints of Hammerfell and internal conflicts there.
