Thats an interesting theory but I was thinking more along the lines of seeing what really happened during Sanguinius's last battle with Horus.
There has already been some speculation on other threads about what really happened when the Emperor faced Horus, how seeing Sanguinius dead didn't seem to bother him but seeing a custodes getting all toasty pushed him over the edge.
It's always been my guess that it wasn't Horus that killed Sanguinius, it was the Emperor.
Sanguinius and Horus were very close before the Heresy, what if, during their last confrontation, Horus manged to talk him round and turn him against the Emperor?

Horus is distracted by the Custodes and the Emperor kills Sanguinius, Horus is distraught at the loss of his closest brother and loses control, the Emperor uses this to finish him off as well.

If Mephiston has seen this as a result of falling to the black rage and has come out of the other side then that would put the future of the whole Chapter in jeopardy. Maybe he sees the need to fight for the preservation of humanity but knows that the Empire is built on lies. That the God Emperor is nothing more than a sham.

I know this is a long shot, but,....

If you look at the final battle picture from CVs, Sanguinius was killed by a sword blow/ thrust. Horus had a lightning claw/ talon and a power maul. The Big E had a power sword....

Only the emperor knows...

i never thought of it like that and then if you think that Mephiston is aware of the Emperors great betrayal yeah that really would put the preverbial blood amongst the angels. then again lets face it, the Emperor betrayed Magnus by sending the wolves in (probably jealous that magnus was getting more powerful imho) and he sent an assassin after Curze so that might fit.
And Serpion i like it lol

Well it would seem that the Knights of Blood are already doing just that, maybe thats the way things are going?
