Someone who plays the games would understand this makes sense: Without Corvo being framed, he would have no impetus to help the Loyalist conspiracy, and thus no reason to meet Piero, nor kidnap Sokolov. Without those two working together, the cure for the rat plague would not be found. Without that, the city would devolve into High Chaos, resulting in a High Chaos style Emily Kaldwin.]]
