A Thought About The Demonic Alliance... [wild speculation]
I'm sure this has come up before, so feel free to tell me to shut up, but I've been trawling the archive, and the Alliance don't explicitly state WHEN they get V's soul. Combine that with the fact that they were worried when she lost the soul splices in Xykon's lair...
So my (probably previously thought of and/or wrong) theory is that they're going to take control when the Order reach one of the gates, possibly re-splicing her to ensure she succeeds. And maybe - just maybe - Belkar will die trying to stop them.

"The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. But the crimes they hope to prevent in the future are imaginary. The ones they commit in the present--they are real." --Aral Vorkosigan
