Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster, . This has been something that's been irking me for a while, and I've never seen any discussion on it.
What exactly happened with Lan's warder bond when Moiraine 'died?' Clearly it was passed to Merylle, and he is taken by the 'death rage,' yet Moiraine didn't die. You could say it happened when Moiraine and Lanfear passed through the doorway, but then why didn't this happen in The Shadow Rising, when she used the one in the Stone? She had already set up the bond so that it would pass to Myrelle by then. I don't see the doorway melting being the cause, either, as there is still two other links, at least, to the world of the 'finns.
Rather than filling this post with possibilities and ideas, I'd like to see this discussed.
