I'm also talking about Athrun escaping and after Durandal goes lulz crazy with power after the destruction of Logos, Shinn will form doubts and Athrun will confince him to be a man and stop Durandal from murdering millions/billions of innocents as it would be repeating the same mistakes of the past. Lacus obviously would still be alive as Athrun needs someone to give him a small army and it would/should have been Athrun stopping Cagalli's wedding anyway.
Athrun was questioning Shinn considering how much he benefited from Durandal. You would be suspicious of someone showering with gifts every single day that raise your status. How is that not inflating Shinn's ego? He had plenty of time on the missions on earth to redeem himself. Instead, he act as a stray ricochet focus simply on revenge killing indiscriminately.

Durandal was crazy for power the entire time, he didn't hide it. It doesn't even to be the destruction of Logos to got him to that role where he is pulling the strings.

Shinn should have question Durandal even earlier about why he is being use this way. I felt that had Shinn should have become even more unstable instead of hovering a bit above breaking point.
