"While his intentions may seem noble, his methods are questionable and his history tarnished. Whatever he might be, he is not Guthix."-Juna
With CoM, we have seen Zaros for what he is, for better or worse, when he feels in control. When we first met him, he was very apologetic, kissing up to us no matter what we did or said to him because he felt he needed us as an ally to regain his body.
But now he's back and as bold as he was at the peak of his empire. It seems Zamorak being present at the party brought back some old grudges he insisted to have put behind him. We should've seen this coming when the first action he did with his reconnection with the world with Azzanadra's gate was to shatter a statue of Zamorak outside the chaos temple.
In the end he re-acquired Zamorak as a temporary pawn by promising something he said he was planning to do anyway. Very strategic of him.
What really stuck with me were some choice lines from their confrontation:
Zamorak: You have manipulated the desperate long enough! Empty Lord. Deceiver. I will not let history repeat itself!
Absolutely no refutation of "no, I'm trying to help the mahjarrat" from Zaros.
Zamorak: If I am to die, the power you gave me will become theirs!
Zaros: What? No....
^--- Say what? You were saying you wanted to save the mahjarrat, yet when Zamorak does it for you you're angry? Either Zaros wasn't actually going to go through with the deal (just another empty promise) or he's not the solid rock of cold logic he said he was, and was furious to be deprived of his revenge, as it would have made Zamorak a martyr.
That was just some of my ramblings, but consider this the topic: How has CoM changed your perception of Zaros and Zamorak? Headcanon Haven, where everything is made up and the points don't matter.
