DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY
Deadsy

Plot the episodes

Recommended Posts

Someone made a good post on this in one of the bigger threads that was much more thorough, but I thought it would make a good topic on its own. Most of my guesses are going to be short and sweet.

 

We have titles for episodes 1-4 and 6 so far.

 

101. Leavetaking - I'm hoping this will be a longer episode, at least an hour and a half. Seems like a lot of time should be spent introducing the main characters, but clearly by the end of the episode they must either be fleeing the Two Rivers or, possibly but less likely, fleeing the farm and heading to the Two Rivers.

 

102. Shadow's Waiting - Seems pretty obvious

 

103: A Place of Safety - Arrival in Baerlon

 

104: The Dragon Reborn - Traveling to Caemlyn - maybe we hear a bunch about Logain and to Rand he will seem to be the Dragon Reborn. Could also have some of the channeling Rand is unaware of doing, so the title is actually about him.

 

105: Unknown - Arrival in Caemlyn

 

106: The Flame of Tar Valon - Rand sees all of the Aes Sedai parading/escorting Logain through the streets. He meets Elaida at the palace, then Moiraine shows up. This would be a good episode to learn some extra stuff about the White Tower and Aes Sedai. They leave Caemlyn at the end of the episode. I've seen people use this episode's title as evidence they'll fit 2 books into 1 season and this is Siuan's arrival to Fal Dara. I find it far more likely this is just where we see a lot of Aes Sedai and learn a lot about them, and the flame will be on their cloaks of course.

I agree with 1-4. 5 and 6 could potentially be Moiraine backstory ground. Honestly, I prefer your idea, but on the other hand, an episode title like "The Flame of Tar Valon" should have some exceptionally large Tar Valon content, of the sort that I'm not sure Rand meeting Elaidia would generate.

I think they will make a huge deal out of the procession of Logain and the Aes Sedai and that would be enough. Especially if it's the first introduction of Aes Sedai besides Moiraine. The idea of the Aes Sedai changed a lot once we knew more than one of them. But yes they can add in some back story as well, maybe make us aware that Siuan exists.

Most of the stuff with Logain will probably be in episode four, as you placed it. 

 

As for it being the first non-Moiraine introduction, I suppose, although there were earlier lines about "how if I had known I would have found trollocs and Myrdraal I would have dragged a half dozen of my sisters"

What a disaster that would have been.

You know what would be cool is Moiraine(Rosamand's) voice over the end of episode one as they're all leaving, telling the Manetheran story as I think that has to be in there.

That would be a good way to allow you to cut the mob scene.

And, yeah, you really need to get the story of Manetheran.

I expect A Place of Safety to be Shadar Logoth (an ironic title, but one the gang thought would be true since it sheltered them from trollocs) or have to do with evens soon after Shadar Logoth if the gang splits up. 

 

The Dragon Reborn will be Caemlyn and surrounding events. 

 

Episode 5 will be titled The Eye of the World and will be the climax of the first book. 

 

Episode 6 is the start of TGH.

I'm just finishing my relisten of EotW and my thoughts are alot of the episodes will have backstory about various characters and adjustments.

Like A Place of Safety, which has to be Shadar Logoth will have the Aridhol story but also maybe flashing to the real Mordeth. I'm think RJ meant Mordeth to be one thing when he was writing a trilogy but decided to keep him in the longer story. I think his character has to be more well established since TV will want to make him something other than a leftover RJ didn't know how to handle.

If ep 5 really isn't EotW, it could be Wisdom, featuring backstory of Nyneave and emonds fielders that she's interacted with. It could be info heavy too as you could put almost anything in with that title and of course the rescue, provided they're keeping that White cloak vs. Perrin subplot.

Wherever they put it, they have to keep some of the journey to Caemlyn as it's important, like the channeling bits and Mat being consumed by the dagger. Alot can be left though as it has no bearing on anything, like all those named farmers and the jumping back and forth in time is just confusing. Maybe an honorable mention to Els and perhaps a flashback if her name in mentioned but no more.

Some elements of Books 1&2 might be combined too since I don't know how you get 10 eps from EotW alone, considering half the book is gone because you aren't describing anything. I doubt you can squeeze 2 books in 10eps but the Fal Dara stuff, along with Suian might be in Season 1 but the Eye and the blowing of the Horn would be too much for one season. It's not like most of the later books where they don't really have an epic ending like Dumais Wells or the Cleansing

Baerlon to Shadar Logath. Hello Min.

End with the Scattering.

I reckon Tex's summary is probably right.  The only few things I would comment on or speculate to add or amend is that I think for episode 1, it doesn't end at Moiraine's speech.  That's probably a midpoint, or nearly so, of that episode, which likely ends with Baerlon in view.   I also think they cut the Lews Therin prologue for use later in the series.    For additional speculation, I think they cut Rand and Tam going back to the farm; instead they'll stay for Winternight and Tam will have some excuse to bring his sword with him, for Rand to have it when they leave.  Tam's fever-confession will be accelerated, Rand will carry him out of a burning building instead of through a forest all night long, and ultimately, we'll see Lan and Moiraine save everybody about 20-25 minutes in.  My main concern is I think they may cut Thom, and I would hate that.  

I think ep 3 will actually end with Perrin and Egwene's capture by the Whitecloaks and Rand and Mat's capture by Darkfriends at Four Kings.  Ep 04 opens with Perrin's rescue and Rand and Mat's escape, but is otherwise right on, in my view.

 

For ep 05, I think that's right that it'll basically be the Eye of the World scenes.  But I think they keep the Green Man and drop Fal Dara, or a great deal of it.  CGI's not that expensive anymore, and they don't need the Green Man for long, and this episode is gonna need a lot of it anyway.

 

I think the rest is right, though I would find it odd if they finish season 1 with Padan Fain stealing the Horn and dagger back.  I reckon they'll specifically end it at the point where Rand uses the Portal Stone to get them all to Toman Head, and Liandrin pushes the girls through the Waygate at Falme.

I'm with Texas for the most part with a few exceptions. I expect Moiraine will take over Verin's part (who will be introduced later), because otherwise she's barely in TGH and I doubt Pike is getting sidelined. Since it sounds like filming will take 9 or more months, I'm expecting more episodes than 6-8. My version.

 

Episode 1 

Logain facing off against the Aes Sedai here prior to Padan Fain spreading the news. 

 

Episode 2

If Thom is not in TR, Baerlon seems like a natural place to meet him. Min could be his apprentice.

 

Episode 3-5 - same as Texas

 

Episode 6 

Seanchan invasion experienced through Bayle Domon meeting Turak. 

Bornhald doing his "necessary evil" deeds. 

Suian/Moiraine reunion, likely with a romantic flavor. 

 

Episode 7

Rand portal stone and the boring Selene sequence.

Moiraine/Lan researching in the Cairhienin library, since it ties to the Selene plot where that library is brought up at least 200 times. It's also a good place to delve into Moiraine's past.

Ends with Nynaeve's accepted test. 

(they'll probably skip Rand getting the horn only to lose it again)

 

Episode 8

Rand/Moiraine reunion with everyone in Cairhien. Daes Dae'mar.

Liandrin sneaking the girls off to the Ways. 

Thom killing the king. 

Ends on Moiraine guiding Rand into using the one power on the portal stone.

 

Episode 9

Starts with Egwene getting captured and collared, or with the epic Flicker sequence.

Ends with Ingtar's confession and sacrifice.  

 

Episode 10

Final showdown at the end of TGH.

That was me, and I found the document listing it all so I'm cleaning it up and reworking a few things but it's about 70% consistent with all the information we have so far

I’m getting the feeling that the final episode of season one will be in Fal Dara.

my guesses are

Ep 1 leavetaking title obvious Two Rivers, ending shortly after they cross the Taren

Ep 2 Where the Shadow Waits title obvious, journey to Baerlon then on to  Shadar Logoth, ending on a cliffhanger

Ep 3 title Dragon Reborn because someone discusses the Dragon Reborn prophecy and of what. happens to Rand, seperate parties heading towards caemlyn, ending with Rand and Mats escape from the Dark friends

Ep 4 Rescue of Egwene and Perrin, ending with Rand and Mat reaching Caemlyn

Ep 5 In Caemlyn, Rands adventure around Caemlyn, meet Loail. ending with the reunion at the inn

Ep 6 through the Ways to Fal Dara, ending with them entering the Blight

Ep 7 The Eye of the World, ending with Rand at Tarmons Gap and we may hear some of the Prophecy of the Dragon at the very end

Ep 8 Fal Dara we begin to get into TGH at this point, ending with the Boys leaving to go after Fain and the girls going to Tar Valon.

I wouldn’t have a problem if they do it that way, its a good place to leave a TV Series, showing a glimpse of what Season 2 will be about.

I wonder how much of the Eye, the place, will be in season 1 because that was when the book was a trilogy. It might be better if they just go on a quest for the horn, the dragon banner and maybe a seal, and possibly meet Someshta and Aginor, instead of the real conclusion which doesn't make much sense.

I don’t understand. As far as I understand we do have the name of the 5. episode: «Blood calls blood». 

Just did a reread of book 1 and 2 and every title so far is named after a chapter in the books. 

I am guessing Leavetaking, when they leave TR.

Shadow’s Waiting is the name for Shadar Logoth.

A Place of Safety is in the books when Mat and Rand reach Basel Gill in Caemlyn. I’m guessing that will be it. 

The Dragon Reborn I think is at the Eye, where Rand channels for the first time, and Moiraine knows it’s Rand that is the one she was searching for.

Blood calls blood is a chapter in book 2, where we see Fains prophecy after he escapes Fal Dara. What is weird is that in TGH the chapter Flame of Tar Valon happens before Blood calls blood.

The Flame of Tar Valon I am guessing is about Siuan Sanche, isn’t The Flame of Tar Valon one of the titles to the Amyrlin?

Here’s my edited posts to accommodate all the info I’ve been able to find since my last post was archived. 

What we know:

 

Ep1: Leavetakings(EotW Ch10: Set out from EF, Thom and Egwene join the party), and the opening scene is An Empty Road (also GH Ch9 shares the same title - EF5 splits up leaving Fal Dara) 

Ep2: Shadow's Waiting (EotW Ch19: Arrival at and explore Shadar Logoth, Mat takes the ruby dagger) 

Ep3: A Place of Safety (EotW Ch8: In book Moiraine refers to Tar Valon for the Ta'veren and EF for Rand after the events of Winternight) 

Ep4: The Dragon Reborn (GH Ch8: Rand's Ta'veren meeting with the Amyrlin in Fal Dara) 

Ep5: Blood calls Blood (GH CH7: Aes Sedai discuss the dark prophecy and Lanfear after giving Mat temporary healing following Fain's rescue raid) 

Ep6: The Flame of Tar Valon(GH Ch1: The Amyrlin's party enter's Fal Dara) 

Ep7: Unknown 

Ep8: Unknown (JordanCon April 2020 panel - confirmed) 

 

Characters of note cast: Leane Sharif (KoC), Liandrin Guirale (Red/Black), Kerene Nagashi (NS, Murdered searcher), Alanna Mosvani (Green) + Warders 

Other information (word of Rafe)

·        Logain will have an expanded role 

·        Episode chronology may not follow book chronology 

·        Visuals cut a lot of word count 

·        Rafe has stated he wants to explore polyamory in reply to a question about showing Rand's love square 

·        Brandon Sanderson is happy with everything but one change from the script so far 

·        BS Instagram post had location data referencing Taren Ferry in Ep2 

·        Narg uploaded a shot of tinker-like caravans purportedly from a WoT set. 

Assumptions: 

·        Not more than 8-10 seasons due to cast contracts and general fatigue for the whole production

·        Episodes to run for 1 hour each. There may be flexibility to vary these for battles etc

·        NS is incorporated as flashbacks 

·        The plot will be streamlined to focus on Rand, Perrin, Mat, Egwene, Elayne

o   Characters who usually appear in company of the five above will only have very infrequent solo adventures. Example is Nynaeve (for epic Malkier scene), who is almost always in the company of one of the above. Likely exceptions are Logain (for Black Tower arc) and Siuan (escape from Tar Valon). 

 

Season 1

The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt

 

I broke each hour-long episode into roughly 6 lots of 10 minutes. This is not a hard and fast rule, merely something to manage breaking up the story.

 

I originally had the opening scene as:

Gitara Moroso foretells the birth of the Dragon, falls dead in Moiraine’s arms. Zoom from the Keeper’s window out to Dragonmount; a man picks up a crying baby from the snow. But this isn’t the case anymore due to known info

Episode 1.2 – Shadow’s Waiting

1.      Lessons
They cross the river and the ferry sinks. Thom watches Lan give the boys instruction on the use of the sword and axe, as they enter camp after they watch Moiraine talking to Egwene about the power and guiding Egwene’s first channelling.

2.      Prologue to the Great Hunt
Ba’alzamon hosts a gathering of darkfriends and images of the three boys are suspended in the air. Specific focus on the darkfriends coming from all classes and nations – particularly the ones who engage with the party (Shiaine, Patyr, Ingtar, Black Ajah incl Liandrin, Barthanes, Valda – Carridin being absorbed into Valda’s character)

3.      Glimmers of the Pattern
The group enter Baerlon, Moiraine admonishes them to keep quiet and stay close to the inn. The men have their bath and Lan tells them off. Nynaeve turns up while they bathe.

4.      More threads in the Pattern
The awkward dinner; Moiraine agrees to let Nynaeve stay overnight. The boys have the rat dream and wake up simultaneously. Rand goes to get a glass of milk and is rescued from a Fade by Lan. They all flee in the night. Rand has his first channelling reaction at the gates, forcing Moiraine to threaten the Whitecloaks.

3.      The Tinker stole my pots!
Perrin’s group meet the Tinkers. We learn about the Way of the Leaf. I’m inclined to reduce this by removing Aram (seriously, he has zero impact on the story). Then we can cut to Rand and co walking through Whitebridge discussing their options when a Fade attacks, they flee and Thom goes for heroic sacrifice. Rand and Mat beg for room and offer to play the flute at dusk in the next town.

4.      Whitecloaks in Shadow
We see the formal Tuatha’an farewell. Perrin and co walk for a time before ravens appear, Elyas leads them to a stedding to hide rather than the pursuit.

1.      The False Dragon
Open with a flashback of Logain’s capture, including Alanna and warders in prominence. I expect Cadsuane to be recognisable but unnamed in the scene. Close up of Logain entering Caemlyn surrounded by Aes Sedai and Warders.

2.      The Queen’s Blessing
Rand and Mat enter the Queen’s Blessing. Mat goes to bed, but Rand stays and meets Loial and Min for the first time. Min is moved from Baerlon to Caemlyn to provide a balancing exposition of both her powers and Ogier and streamline the story. Basel Gill tells the group Logain will enter the city tomorrow. Rand decides to go see.

3.      Four Kings (short)

3.      The Blight

4.      The Eye of the World
The group meets The Green Man. He takes them to the Eye of the World. Aginor and Balthamel are waiting for them outside. The Green Man kills Balthamel. The boys flee while Moiraine tries to hold Aginor.

5.      The Light’s Salvation
Tarwin’s Gap begins. Rand’s struggle with Aginor is depicted. Tarwin’s Gap is saved. The Creator stops Rand from pre-empting Tarmon Gai’don.

- Ends with Moiraine and gang leaving EF

 

2. Shadow's Waiting

- Starts with Ferry Crossing

- Ends with Shadar Logoth split

 

3. A Place of Safety

- Starts with Perrin finding land.

- Ends with Perrin's escape from the Whitecloaks.

 

4. The Dragon Reborn

- Starts with the team reunion at Caemlyn

- Ends with the events at The Eye (no initial stop at Fal Dara).

 

5. Blood Calls Blood

- Starts with the gang leaving the Blight and arriving at Fal Dara. 

- Ends with  Verin explaining the Shadow Prophecy. Cliffhanger when she outs Moiraine/Siuane about knowing their secrets. 

 

6. The Flame of Tar Valon

- Starts with Rand meeting Siuan. (The EF5 parts ways within the first 15 minutes) 

- Ends with Rand's arrival in Cairhienin 

 

7. Unknown 1

- Starts with Rand reuniting with everyone in Cairhienin 

- Ends with Egwene collared - or - Rand getting ready to travel using the portal stone (no stops at the stedding)

 

8. Unknown 2

I think this is going to be pretty close to what we will end up with. I like it.

I definitely think they should open with the Prologue, with Lews Therin and Ishamael, before the opening credits, its just to good a way to start, introduces the main Protagonist(sort of) and Antagonist without actually telling you they are, but what it also does is, introduce Channeling, and immediately shows you the depth of its power, but then you don’t see that level of power until Rand at Tarwins Gap. Immediately shows you that Magic is at the very heart of this story. 
They could also follow that with a figure walking through snow on a slope, suddenly hear a baby cry and walk over to see a baby lying next to its dead mother. But not showing the figures face or hearing its voice. 
Then follow it with the opening Credits showing a slowly turning Wheel with 7 points on it each numbered 1-7, ending on number 3.

Then cut to a Mountain scene and a wind rise, and as you follow the wind east, a voice cuts in, either Rosamund’s or Alexandre’s* say the immortal opening line. 
The Wheel of Time Turns, and Ages come and Pass...... and finishing with But it was a beginning as it reaches 2 figures walking with a Horse and Cart down a Road.

*I think using either Moraine or Thom has merit, but i do like the thought of Thom doing it in Plain Chant.
I would have to admit i would be a jibering wreck by the time that wind reached Rand.

I really episode one ends with them leaving and a voiceover of Moiraine with the Manetheran story. That needs to be there as does Rand seeing the Choedan Kal and some kind of reaction.
