I don't think they imagined the murder of the family in total. George wanted to save his job, I don't think he ever thought his life was in danger. The English would not have shot the Newly minted Windsors, but it could have jeopardized the Monarchy as it were. And blame must also fall on the Tsar himself. In the early Kerensky days, getting them out would have been easier and the Kaiser made a genuine offer that was refused by Alexandra out of hand. And the Kaiser could have done it. So, knowing to run when you should is also a culprit. The Tsar must have known from the onset his life was, certainly, in danger, as was his wife's. He never made a quick nor forceful decision and didn't at this time either.
