Remember him?

Siuan Sanche's Warder ?

Yeah.

He served her for twenty years,was executed and Siuan remembered to cry for him when her stilling was healed.That's it.

Who was he,how did she bond him, what was being the Amrilyn's warder like.... all brushed under the rug.

But we get dozens of pages about sniffing and skirt smoothing.

THEY DID THAT MAN WRONG.

Still, Alric is in the room outside her study. She should have noticed some change in his emotions; he's bound do have either tried to stop them, or just been bound with the power and having a dagger stuck into his back. This would have happened prior to the Aes Sedai's entry into Siuan's room, and seems to be emotionally upsetting enough for Alric that Siuan should have noticed.

On this note, how come Siuan didn't notice that Alric died before Elaida and the others stormed into her chamber?

RJ made a mistake and tried to retcon it later unconvincingly.

Exactly, he claimed that Alric was not dead, but was dieing, but it was all just to cover the one little mistake that many had found.

 

It was similar to how Eliada was able to depose of Siuan, he claimed that he had found a section of writing that he failed to include on how Eliada became a sitter. This was because someone pointed out that mistake as well. RJ was much more careful.

 

The only mistake that he hasn't fixed yet was Perrin communicating with Noam telepathically, but unable to communicate with Elayas (several books later).

I don't think that's a mistake. Noam was literally a wolf in a man's body. That's why he could communicate with him, but not the huamn Elayas.

WhenPerrin had a convo with Boundless (Noam) it was in the dream. When Perrin first encountered Noam in TDR he reached out to Noam's mind and found that Noam was pretty much a wolf not a man, there was no communication, Perrin just had a look and then recoiled in shock.
