Please no spoilers for Golden Deer or Blue Lion. Those are up next.... eventually.

Finally finished with the Crimson Flower route, and I wondering if anyone gives a legitimate reason for following or supporting Edelgard.

Petra states she is doing it for Brigid's best interest, but I don't really count that since the same argument is made in the Church route. Lysithea might have a legitimate reason for going along with Edelgard due to the Crest experiments she underwent, so that may be one person.

Everyone else just seems to give "Oh Professor!" as a reason. The story doesn't even seem to give an explanation as to why Byleth would choose to side with Edelgard over Rhea.

Am I missing something?

no, they never gave a good reason. Byleth's response of "I chose to" is all you get. The route exists purely to S rank Edelgard.

And Hubert and Jeritza. Can't forget about them.

Byleth knows how to make one helluva cult.

Shame that the matching tracksuits were on backorder.

You’re getting reasons, you just don’t like them, so you don’t consider them good.
Listen to my story....this may be our last chance.

I believe the reason why he's asking is because during black eagles part 1, you're never let in on Edelgard's plans, you just have to blindly protect her, and hope you made the right choice. In part 2, its just up to you the player to agree with her plans and methods, you make the choice without knowing whats what, other than "must protect albino waifu"

That “albino waifu” is your student who you have become very close to over the course of a year, who you are ordered to kill unquestionably. You saying you would do it, without thinking?

Rhea orders you to kill her, no exception. No trial, no questioning, nothing. Just kill her. Even if I believed Edelgard was wrong, I wouldn’t just execute her without a second thought.
