It would be an interesting twist though if it was revealed that she was working with the agents of the Dark all the time and we were lead around by our nose again.
I have been wondering if this is the case.
there are some related matters that I talk about in this thread-
'Pieces Of Manus Plan...
it covers the possibility that the Throne of Want is actually the Throne of Dark and that the Giant Lord is a Dark Lord of a past cycle (reverting to stone like the rest of the world during the return of the fog/dark). it's kind of 'out there' as far as theories go, but there are some interesting things to consider.
( a note regarding the above: Vendrick could use the Ashen Mist Heart to go back to the Age of Ancients, just like we do in the Dragon's Memory)
it gives reason why the Throne Watcher/Defender (dark souls) are awaiting a Monarch and are said to have waited there since ancient times.
the smaller throne put inside a larger throne makes it seem like it used to be the Giant Lord's, and Want is so tied to Dark/Humanity.
the 'Monarch' being sealed inside of a small dark chamber where he decides which end he 'wants' to happen.

I also like relating Dark to water, and the darkness that the golems are standing in before the Throne of Want is actually pitch black water (little funny detail).
it's not a theory that I stand by, but I really like the implication of it (because it ties things together for me).
it gives me hope for the DLC giving an alternate ending where we use the power within the Crowns to fuel the Kiln in Lordran.
the Shrine of Winter seems like a good portal to use to go back to Firelink Shrine.
what I love about this theory, is that I know it will be shattered with the last DLC.
I don't expect any of this to happen, but it sure would be interesting.
