I am confused about what happened to Thera and the whole Atlantis incident. What the cutscene shows is, Kratos talks to Thera, says he wasn't there to free her, Thera says he must help her. Then the player resumes control of Kratos and throws his blades into her, pulls them out and gains the Thera's Bane power, Thera screams in pain, and as Kratos leaves, Thera reaches up and collapses the stone bridge/path he is on. I interpreted this as him stealing her power and leaving her to remain imprisoned, and she destroys the bridge in an attempt to get back at him. But when I was reading the plot summary on Wikipedia, it said Kratos freed Thera from her bonds, and when I changed this, I was told that I was wrong and that the "General consensus is it is an escape". So I would like to know, is this what everybody thinks, that Kratos freed Thera and she escaped from the volcano? Because it certainly didn't look that way.
Actually if you listen (or read) closely you will learn that Thera knew kratos's could not do much by himself so she offered some of her power (which is thera's bane) in exchange for her release and when she was released her movement caused some rumbling which caused the bridge to go down.
