Eh, thats pretty weak. I mean if both Elza and Sorilea are DF's and you set this up for Semi, to go down, which is presumably what happened, do really pick Sorilea to go down with her? No, you pick the one that is in least useful position and that's Elza.
Besides, Sorilea probably just did not have the strength to do it.

Unless she has been hiding her true strength, of course. Wouldn't it be fun if it turned out that Sorilea is Mesaana?

It's the way she gave a piece of advice that proved crucial for Cadsuane to figure out how to break Semi. I know Moridin was mad at her and wanted her to be captured and tortured, but he didn't want her to be broken and interrogated. One could argue that it's a moot point because the plan all along was to break her free and sacrifice her in a head-on attack against Rand, but that plan would have worked just as well if she were set free before Cadsuane broke her will to resist, and to allow her to be broken in the first place would create a substantial risk that she might reveal critical information to her captors before the "rescue" could take place.
If she is a dark friend - could she just be enjoying the power over one of the Forsaken...excuse me Chosen? From what I've seen most dark friends, if not all, are constantly scheming to come out on top. And power over others is not only a good tool for that purpose, but a pleasurable one for them.

Just a thought...To be honest, I'm still undecided on this theory, but I do enjoy the debate. I would think it an interesting twist though...
