Long live the king.
Mercy serves as an interlude between the second and third episodes in the story of The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood if you chose to spare the king of Wayrest. The Regicide cutscene is unlocked instead if you opted to kill the king.
Kellen explains what happened afterward:
- Kellen: “The king sailed from Wayrest, promising to someday grant the agent lands and titles for sparing him – promises that were never, to my knowledge, fulfilled.”
- Kellen: “But he and his Corsairs left a devastated city in their wake. And, as the agent soon learned…”
- Kellen: “…they had destroyed the Brotherhood Sanctuary, and killed all within.”
- Kellen: “But Uther had learned of another Brotherhood sanctuary in Falkreath, where a survivor of Wayrest would be welcomed with open arms.”
You are then brought to the Episode 3 Intro.
