After escaping from his cell Thrall moves forward rescuing Orc and Troll prisoners, even as he leads them against the Murlocs and other creatures. At one point in their march to rescue Sen'jin and escape, Thrall witnesses a massive jailbreak of trapped Alliance forces. Deciding to hang back, Thrall allows for the Murlocs and Alliance to significantly weaken one another before deciding to moving in to finish off the survivors. Soon after he frees the last of the prisons but discovers that the Murlocs just took Sen'jin in order to sacrifice him. With this knowledge in hand Thrall quickly moves forward to save Sen'jin but is ultimately too late. With Sen'jin avenged and the Darkspear apart of the Horde (per Sen'jin's dying wish), Thrall leads the survivors to the surface in order to reunite with the rest of the Horde.
- This mission was cut out of the full game with just the tutorial levels left in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. The mission was first seen in the Warcraft III Demo which was made available after the release of the game. In Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, Blizzard Entertainment made a custom campaign which included the missions that were exclusive to the demo campaign; however, the voice acting was removed as the demo voice acting had only been recorded in English and Blizzard was unable to localize it for other regions.
- In the custom campaign there is a visibility bug with Sen'Jin not present in the demo campaign. The troll appears stand up in the final cinematic and then a second later appears in the floor, even thought he was supposed to be in the floor since the Murloc Sorcerer attacked him.
