This #WoTWednesday had some major announcements. First, the @WoTonPrime book club concluded its read of The Eye of the World. This introduced so many new readers to this wonderful series we know and love. Our fandom is growing! The book club doesn’t currently have plans to start The Great Hunt, but we hope they will continue with this as the Amazon Prime show gets closer to completion.
To celebrate reaching the end of The Eye of the World, @WoTonPrime rewarded us with this snippet of a video, starting on the excerpt from The Eye of the World where it introduces the Winespring Inn, then we get our first real look at the epicenter of Emond’s Field.
Rafe Judkins also joined the celebration on Twitter and agreed to answer the first three questions about the Winspring Inn.
“To celebrate @WOTonPrime‘s first glimpse of the Winespring, I’ll answer the first three questions I get about it on here. Go :)”
The first question focused on the smell:
Q: “Does it smell like honey cakes and fresh bread?”
A: “It mostly smells like ginger tea, which anyone who’s spent time on the WoT set would tell you ha. But there were honeycakes that the wasps and hornets couldn’t get enough of. So we had to spray them with a wasp repellent, but they didn’t tell me and I ate one.”
Hopefully eating wasp repellent isn’t harmful to humans….
The second question makes all of us long to be on the set.
Q: “What were your thoughts walking through it the first time”
A: “Absolutely one of the most emotional moments on the show for me so far. Just standing in the center of Emond’s Field felt totally surreal, looking up at the red roof of the Inn, the trouble they’d gone to give each house and villager a profession and a life there. It was amazing”
I cannot want to see more of Emond’s Field! These answers from Rafe makes it much more real and closer than ever to being a finished product.
The last one may spark some interesting speculation.
Q: “Do we see the bel tine celebration?”
A: “This one might be a spoiler, especially for Winternight enthusiasts, but yes.”
Wow! We all know that Bel Tine was ruined by the Trolloc attack. If the attack doesn’t happen on Winternight, when will it happen? During the Bel Tine celebration? If so, do we get to see Tam’s fever dream? Will we not be aware Rand is adopted right from the start? Will we still see Narg—the most intelligent Trolloc—trying to reason with Rand about going to the Myrddraal?
So many things to think about just on one sentence! It was a great #WoTWednesday.
Let us know when you think the Trolloc attack will come in the comments below!
