Don't forget, all we hear about the interaction bewtween Morrolan
and Verra is from Vlad's view, and we know that he hears what
she says differently than the people around him.

Who knows, maybe Verra was saying to Morrolan, "Hey, don't worry, love,
you'll be fine.  This Easterner will get you out of here intact."

Damn goddesses and their "You hear what I want you to hear"
