Draka and Thrall Reunion Heavily Hinted in Evolution of Thrall BlizzConline Panel

In the BlizzConline panel
World of Warcraft: The Evolution of Thrall
Christie Golden has hinted quite heavily that there will be a reunion between Thrall and his mother, Draka.
Most of the panel involved Terran Gregory, Christie Golden, and Sean Copel discussing Thrall's history - but when When Terran asked what's next for the former Warcheif, Christie immediately replied,
His mother has not been idle in death. She has earned her place in Maldraxxus - in her refusal to give up, for her courage in sacrificing herself for her child, for her loyalty. She is now in a position of jeopardy and power of some sort. The Shadowlands is a pretty big place, but it's also smaller than you think.
This lines up with details from the
Shadowlands Maldraxxus Lore Interview
with Turkish fansite Lorekeeper.net and Lead Narrative Designer Steve Danuser:
Many players are waiting for Draka and Thrall to meet. How important will this event be, and how will this reunion be emotionally for both of them?
I don’t think a reunion like that could be emotionally easy on either part.
We saw Thrall go to this alternate Draenor and we got to see him interact with versions of his parents, but they weren’t the same people. He got to pick up on a lot of their qualities and things like that. But there was probably still something within him where he knew that these weren’t actually the people who bore him, who lost the chance to raise him and so forth.
But this Draka that is in Shadowlands IS that person as we saw in the Maldraxxus Afterlives short. She was the one who gave her life trying to defend that little baby. And again, if we think of threads of fate bonding characters together, those kinds of threads transcend mortal life, then there is definitely a thread between Thrall and Draka that needs to be resolved there. And that is definitely something that we plan for in the subsequent chapters of the Shadowlands. Right now, when you play through the storyline, obviously Thrall has been taken captive, he is in a bad place; we’ve got to resolve that. Draka has a lot going on in the Shadowlands that she needs to immediately resolve in terms of what’s going on Maldraxxus. But there will definitely come a point where these paths are drawn back together, where they intersect. And I think that intersection will be a highly emotional moment for both of those characters and for the players who witness it. So that’s definitely a story that we are looking forward to telling.
Going back to the BlizzConline panel, Sean and Terran spoke more about Thrall's position in the Horde itself, not as Warchief, but as a member of the council, and how it's important for the Horde to not belong to Thrall, or Blackhand, but to all members... suggesting we're unlikely to see Thrall take on the mantle of Warchief again any time soon.
One interesting thing that the panel focussed on was Thrall's history with Garrosh - and how Thrall must feel like he failed Garrosh. They first met during the Burning Crusade, a meeting many of us will witness again soon with
Burning Crusade Classic on its way
. Thrall took Garrosh under his wing, but was unable to prepare him fully for the burden he placed on him by making him Warchief. When they later faced each other in a Mak'gora, Garrosh challenged Thrall about this directly in a way that must still haunt Thrall to this day.
Since we already know Garrosh is somewhere in Revendreth - he was last seen being
drained of anima by Sire Denathrius in the Afterlives: Revendreth animated short
, we can't help but wonder if Thrall and Garrosh might at some point be reunited as well - and how uncomfortable that meeting might be.
