Yeah, I think she would.  It might be a bit of a 'I regret the
necessity' speech, but I think Sethra is honorable enough to regret
what she has to do and realistic enough to do it anyway.  Neither
precludes an apology, and the former almost demands it.

I also agree with you that Sethra is developing a personal liking
for Vlad.  We might disagree as to when it started and how grudging
it is, but I think it's clearly there by Issola.  He still pisses
her off on a regular basis, but she seems to respect him more and
more as time goes by.

On a semi-related note, I think Sethra might be training Vlad to
be a Lavode.
