The talk between Kormir and Lady Kasmeer should have been essentially the same as the talk between The Avatar of Lyssa and Kormir 250 odd years ago. That was where the plot was leading.
This is one of the few glaring flaws in the PoF storyline. The discussion was muddled.. it didn't really carry the message across clearly. ANET ought to review and redo that bit. It is a major hinge of the story.
