In this fight, Argus lashes out at us in pain, corrupted after years of serving the Legion:
Bound. Broken. Eons of existence, knowing only pain. A shattered soul, fueling infinite evil. The master beckons. Rise... Rise! Begin the end of all things.

What Happens Next?
While the end of the Argus encounter was not on the PTR, based on datamining we can piece together the end of the fight.
Sargeras throws a massive sword at Azeroth before he is seized by the remaining titans.
Illidan agrees to be the jailor for Sargeras.
Azeroth is now wounded in Silithus, leading to all sorts of speculation that Old Gods are awakening.
Dialogue after defeating Argus:
: The tortured soul of Argus has been put to rest.
: It matters not. We have lost. Look to the skies!
: Sargeras will soon undo all we have fought for.
Voice of Amanthul
Voice of Amanthul
: We will use the last glimmer of Argus's power to bind him here. The Seat of the Pantheon shall become Sargeras's prison... and ours as well.
: You would condemn yourselves to stop him?
: Our world must survive... no matter the cost!
Voice of Amanthul
: A sacrifice must be made.
Voice of Amanthul
: Return home, children of Azeroth. Protect the final titan.
High Exarch Turalyon
: Prophet... what happened out there?
: Illidan serves as the Dark Titan's jailer. His sacrifice has ended the Legion. At long last, the Burning Crusade...is over.
