One- the fact that you were almost executed is not a excuse to join Ulfric because IT WAS NOT THE EMPIRE THAT ORDERED IT. "What? You gotta be kidding" but I am not, the one who ordered it was ONE IMPERIAL CAPTAIN... and the only imperial authority that was near her at that moment was an inferior authority (General Tullius was too far away to hear what she said).
The Imperial soldiers were the ones who captured you, though. And everyone else brought there was supposed to be executed, so it's logical to guess you are supposed to be executed too. It's not likely they only brought you there to watch.
As per usual, another has fallen to the cliché excuse.
I'll put this simply: Yes, the Empire did capture the DB. Yes, they thought he/she was a Stormcloak. Why? There's an ambush on Ulfric Stormcloak, and someone happens to be sneaking nearby. If they're not Imperial, it must be assumed that they are an enemy spy. That's how war works.
Actually, I was arguing more for why that Imperial captain wasn't out of line with her assumption. Apologies if that was unclear.
