  1. I think that it will not be 'Healed', but that placing the Dreadlords in the Stedding is a good way to bring some peace to the ones who were Turned. With the bore sealed and not being able to touch the Source, I see this as something close to how Bilbo went to live with the Elves when he gave up the Ring. Probably not the best comparison, but there it is.
  2. I very nearly chose Daved Hanlon, because he was just so fun. Brandon really picked up on the chaotic evil nature of his character and his scenes in AMOl were the only ones that made me legitimately uncomfortable. I squirmed. But in the end, I chose Moridin. He was many times more interesting than any of the others, and the interactions he had with Rand were pure gold.
  3. Is Peter trolling us now? Edit: Nevermind. If he had left us with just the first post, it would have been a brilliant jibe.
  4. The seed represents the Seanchan. Burning the tree is their occupation of Tarabon. 'Again the seed slays ancitent wrong' is a reference to the eradication of shadowspawn from the Seanchan continent. Now that the Last Battle is here, they again fight Trollocs.
  5. I am okay with the letters being left open (also, she didn't send the other letter, she had prepared another but wasn't able to give it to him because of her oaths), and to a lesser degree Moiraine's wishes/questions can be at least potentially/partially inferred. Even Taim's backstory can be mostly pieced together from the bits in the novel.
  6. The circumstances that surround Verin joining the Black Ajah were RAFO'd by Maria in an interview @ 13th depository. It acutally has a lot of information in it that would be great to have. http://13depository.blogspot.com/2011/03/verin-q-with-maria-simmons.html
  7. They are all in the same boat, like the saying. 'We're all in the same boat'.
  8. The words come with the viewing; that's in the books. I don't see any reason to believe it had anything to do with Compulsion. To be fair, she did love Graendal. Edit: Why/when did the quote function stop displaying the quoted poster's name? Edit 2: Also, Greandal's Compulsion was likely tempestuous given the way things were described in the book. HA!
  9. I thought it was the most natural conversation we've seen between Mat and Rand since they unloaded the Brandy in Chapter 1 of TEOTW.
  10. My immediate response when she gave the dagger to Rand was , 'Oooh, B gonna die!'
  11. Wasn't that just to show Perrin that dying in the dream world was a true death?
  12. This must be the scene that made Brandon feel like GRRM. It's totally Galad to Elayne.
  13. I really didn't see it that way. I've always read Talmanes the same way Brandon does. I recently listened to the Audiobook of TFOH and that REALLY reinforced his sense of humor for me. Edit: I wasn't trying to quote anything, but I can't remove the box.
  14. It's Brandon and Androl. He made a funny about Brandon inserting his voice into the characters.
  15. None other than the Hero of the Horn, Valan Luca. Seriously, though. Could it be one of the Sea Folk?
  16. I will say that if 'it' is the fat man, I would love for this to be Demandred's POV.
  17. This just made me think: Could Rand have made a new Eye of the World within himself?
  18. I should have clarified: The part from the EWOT that I added was just to show that the idea of him having an angreal in that scene was not new, just that most people had dismissed it. The comparison to TSR and him having Callandor, coupled with the statement that he didn't have one, stuck out as an oddity.
  19. The EWOT summary from Maradon notes that 'Much like the weave in TSR,Ch10 where Rand used Callandor to clear the Stone of Tear. Only now he cleared a much larger area without even an angreal.' We also have Rand's reaction that it was a mistake to save Maradon. I don't see any confirmation in the text that he was without an angreal, and his reaction hints that maybe he showed his hand. I wouldn't necessarily call this a band-aid either, especially if it turns out to be the 'other' sa'angreal or the fat man.
  20. Thank you very much for that, Suttree. For this part, most of all: Maybe a better question would be, why does the Dark One deem it necessary to limit usage of the True Power? Edit: For Aross, You're correct that we do not have direct evidence that the Dark One can take over someone's body, but we do have the Prologue of ToM where Graendal used the TP to take over the mind of a dove and force it's body to do things.
  21. If Moridin (or anyone) were allowed to - and chose to - draw in vast amounts of the True Power, would the Dark One be able to take control of their body?
  22. Lanfear is the second strongest of the Forsaken. Look at the confrontation between her and Rand in TFOH for prrof of her strength.
