DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

What would you like to see On Screen that we never got to see On Page?


Recommended Posts

So with the show there is an opportunity to see more of the WoT Universe, there are many things that happen in the WoT Universe that we do not get to see On Page. It would seem from Season 1 AoL cold open that we are getting to see the time before the Breaking. 

I understand time and budget (not so much) constraints. But if you could see something that we never got to see On Page what would it be? I would like to see:
 

  • The opening of the initial Bore and subsequent destruction of Collam Daan and the Sharom.
  • Lanfear publicly declaring for the Shadow.
  • Lews Therin humbling Ishamael in the Hall of Servants. (Would be good to have that set against the Battle in the Sky in Falme).
  • The creation of the first Shadowspawns by Aginor. 
  • The Sealing of the Bore and the counterstroke (as we know it wasn't a counterstroke but the result of the DO touching Saidin).
  • The Seige of Tar Valon by the Armies of Hawkwing.
  • More of Damodred and the Sharans - specifically him killing the Jumara and retrieving Sakarnan.

 

So what would you like to see?

All good.  I especially like the last one.

 

Since we're not getting everything from the books anyway and there is no harm in dreaming:

  • Tuon as a child avoiding/sending assassins and interacting with the Deathwatch Guard.
  • More exploration into Aiel Warrior societies - how they are accepted, what makes them distinctive.  Most description in the books and the Encyclopedia give one sentence at most

I love all of these. If they're going to cut characters so they can take others and expand them, these are my candidates for expansion/improvement:

- Lanfear

- Min

- Logain (already happening)

- Galad 

- Fain (give him a better ending please)

- Asmodean

- Tuon

- Verin

Something mentioned recently in another thread made me think of this:

I would like to see what the Ways were like before the Darkness infected them.

 

In the books, we get no more than the line Loial already delivered in the show.  It would be nice to actually see it.

 

Aside from that, definitely more of the lands outside the Westlands:

Seanchan

Shara

Tremalking and the other Sea Folk islands.

I don't think I'd want to see any of those things in the mainline episodes, but these would be terrific additions to what I kept harping on about what they should have had last season, which is cartoon extras. Think how Game of Thrones had the Histories and Lore animated featurettes that would come when the DVDs were released, or the full-on anime and live action backstory feature films that Netflix is releasing to flesh out the worldbuilding for The Witcher.

 

Amazon did a tiny bit of this with the X-Ray extras, but ideas like this are something that would be a great idea for some kind of cartoon extra. It's not even foreign to Amazon at this point. They made an entire eight-episode season of expanded universe cartoon shorts for The Boys.

 

Something I haven't seen mentioned yet I'd like to see is some depiction of the conquest of Seanchan.

We do get this in the Rhuidean flashback sequence (from a distance).

We do see this in some of the dream sequences - I think when Perrin is first stalking some of the forsaken.

The Forsaken tend to use the Tel'aran'rhiod version of the Ways for many of their early meetings.  And Ba'alzamon does the same when trying to trap the boys.  

But those seem more like the damage has already happened, it's just that you can see (as you always can in the Dream).

 

I'd like them to show what Loial describes, with sunlight, grass and trees.

I think they should have left Fain out out of AMoL full stop. Leave him as mystery, would have been a better story.
