You mean the fact that she knew Morrolan wasn't actually going to kill
him? Or do you think she wouldn't have done it, if Morrolan had gone
off his rocker somehow and killed Vlad? If it's about her not
admitting that she knew the true circumstances of the theft, I'd say
it was a literal truth hiding a deception ("He's not going to kill
you") to convey a truth "It's going to be all right." It did succeed
in making Vlad feel better, although he wasn't sure why.

Agree. Vlad really has a soft spot for people, doesn't he?
