  •  She's collateral damage (none)
    in the sense that Gollum is collateral damage. Or Annakin Skywalker.  Or Peter Pettigrew.  Or the Harold Lauder character in "The Stand".

    Some people, like the 9/11 dead, are helpless victims of the forces of evil.  Some heroes go down trying to stop evil.

    And then there are those, not quite as weak as the first group, or as strong as the second, who might have turned out OK, but who get corrupted by evil and THEN get destroyed by it.

    I can't help feeling a little sorry for Miller (and Wormtail and the rest of them), even though I know it's her decision and that she could save face even now, if she'd only join the good guys.  People more evil than she have played her for a patsy, having her do their dirty work for them and then feeding her to the wolves the instant she was no longer useful to them.
