Quotes

Arthas Menethil is walking up the long, spiraling stairs of the Frozen Throne inside of the Throne Chamber. Voices from the memories of the past flood his mind as he ascends.
IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: ...turn to bloodlust, then we will become as vile as the orcs...
IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: ...you are not my king yet, boy!...
IconSmall Muradin.gif Muradin Bronzebeard: ...forget this business and lead your men home...
IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: ...nor would I obey that command even if you were!...
IconSmall Arthas.gif Arthas: ...damn it, Uther! As your future king, I order you to purge this city...
IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: ...have you lost your mind, Arthas?...
IconSmall Arthas.gif Arthas: ...then I must consider this an act of treason...
IconSmall Uther.gif Uther: ...and you've ground it to dust in a matter of days...
IconSmall Muradin.gif Muradin Bronzebeard: ...you lied to your men and betrayed the mercenaries who fought for you. What's happening to you, Arthas?...
IconSmall Medivh.gif The Prophet: ...your young prince will find only death in the cold north...
Arthas finally reaches the Frozen Throne, where Ner'zhul's spirit is waiting for him.
IconSmall LichKing.gif Ner'zhul: Return the blade. Complete the circle. RELEASE ME FROM THIS PRISON!
Arthas cries out and shatters the Frozen Throne with one strike from Frostmourne. A terrifying howling sound is heard. The throne chamber itself begins to crumble. Ner'zhul's helm lands at Arthas' feet. Arthas picks it up and slowly dons it, his eyes closed. The helm fits perfectly. Arthas opens his eyes, revealing them to be glowing whitish-blue. He is now one with the Lich King.

A white blast of light engulfs everything. When it fades, all that is left of the throne chamber is the tall spiral of stairs leading to the Frozen Throne. The Lich King is sitting on his throne, silently lording over his domain.
