After the Council of Six agreed to aid Theramore, both Aethas Sunreaver and Rhonin recommended Thalen to join the mission. He accompanied Rhonin to defend Theramore Isle, where he was ordered to magically strengthen the northern gate. However, while he appeared to be a loyal member of the Kirin Tor, he was actually a Horde loyalist, and instead weakened the gate. His treachery was discovered by Jaina, who confronted him at his post. Confident, Thalen prepared to do battle with her, though Pained promptly knocked him unconscious and sent him to Captain Evencane for questioning. After the Horde broke through the northern gate, some of them rescued Thalen and removed him from the city; he was safely away when Garrosh Hellscream destroyed Theramore with a mana bomb.

After regaining consciousnesses, Thalen found himself shackled in the basement of Foothold Citadel. However, before Captain Evencane could interrogate him, he was successfully rescued by Horde adventurers. Grateful for being freed, Thalen tells his rescuers the truth about Garrosh's attack on Theramore. He will then send himself and the players through a portal to Orgrimmar so they can escape before the mama bomb destroys city. Before leaving, he tells the adventurers to visit him, if they ever come to Silvermoon City.
What became of Thalen after the Purge of Dalaran is unclear. In Tides of War, Songweaver was banished from the Sunreavers and denounced as a traitor by its leader, Archmage Aethas Sunreaver, who following the purge has returned to Silvermoon City too. It is perhaps unlikely Thalen would have remained in the city, given the Sunreavers hold Garrosh (to whom Thalen was overtly loyal) just as responsible for the purge as Jaina herself.
