I did this quest both ways. In the option where I find Gareth in the burning house & convince him to kill Jonathan I had the option later on in the Nameless Island to side with him against Alexandar, BUT, then he's all sullen and brooding on the LV and, at the last fight, one of the big bosses - not sure who did it - Lucian or Vredeman, brings him into the fight against me! - he got owned pretty fast but still, what was he doing there? Isbeil, Kemm, etc. were revived from dead, but Gareth was still on the ship, very much alive and supposedly on our side, when I went into the cathedral...
In the other version where I find him burying his parents, I had picked up Jonathan's gloves before I talked to him, maybe that's why, when I went into the house he rushed in behind me and demanded that I kill the silent monks. In the first option I agreed to 'take care of the monks' and then he rifles the house to find evidence who gave the order, doesn't offer any other dialog options to give him the gloves as proof or tell him that his parents ghosts told me it was Jonathan. In the option where I persuade him not to kill the monks I got something like 6K xp and he left for LV (where he's tormented by sorrow & demons and can't talk to me he says).
