  1. Cadsuane will be fine since the Oaths will no longer be necessary; the Black Tower has no interest in taking them and the AS don't need to worry about DFs anymore. The 4th Age is going to lead to a different view of the OP, as well as different groups of channeled that have no connection to the White Tower. That is why Egwene would have been a poor choice for Amyrlin moving forward; she held to the old notion of subjecting every channeler to the authority of the White Tower: the Kin, the Wise Ones, Windfinders. Cadsuane is more of a realist, not above political maneuvering but ultimately cognizant of the changing nature of her institution and its role in history moving forward.
  2. It's funny how we keep coming back to The Phantom Menace when discussing AMOL
  3. That's why Cadsuane is a perfect fit for Amyrlin during the period of transition; she has the authority and also experience with men who can channel. Egwene would have merely perpetuated the divide between the two.
  4. Also, disn't Perrin chase Slayer to the Tower of Ghenjei at some point, only to be stopped by Birgitte before entering? Was he trying to trick Perrin into going in there or does Slayer have a pre-existing relationship with the Finns?

  6. Razumikhin Yeah, Egwene's crowning achievement was discovering anti-balefire, but she's sold short by being unable to contribute to the imprisonment of the DO. Lord Matt, Brandon Sanderson was a hired gun, so we couldn't expect him to give us all those lovely details on each character's death. He gets credit for finishing it, though; what an impossible project this must have been for him.
  7. What was the deal with those slaughtered Tinkers that Mat and the Band ran across on their way to Tear in Chapter 22 of LoC? Were they trying to tell Rand about the red veils?
  8. It was that one character beat that made love Elyas: "I said 'No', girl."
  9. That was quite the post (#263), Luckers! It really makes me think more about the love interest that was sandwiched into his arc. This seemed OOC to me but now I can see that BS was merely using it to retroactively heighten his characterization of Demandred. The idea that Demandred is torn between running off with some Sharan noble lady is laughable when you think about it.
  10. Times captured: -Egwene 5x (Whitecloaks, Liandrin, Bandits, BA, WT) -Tuon 1x (Ta'veren)
  11. Ace Sedai, Your cynicism is greatly appreciated! I don't have the records to back it up (didn't really post here before last 2 books), but most of my predictions came after consulting the WOTFAQ maybe around CoT or WH. It's hard to remember, but I like to make crazy predictions. Another one I remember from the Big Unnoticed Thing was a defection of Aiel forces after the onset of the Last Battle. I really thought there were Aiel DFs hiding under Rand's nose, composing a primary force among the headbands. Almost like the Reds as a DF haven in the White Tower.
  12. I kept waiting for Demandred to open Gateways into outerspace around his attacking forces, sucking them out into nothingness. Nothing says Forsaken more than using your advanced understanding of the world against a bunch of medieval rubes! ============================= Also, couldn't Androl have just dumped lava onto the Shadowspawn/Demmy from a horizontal altitude gateway?
  13. That captivity arc (along with her admission of toh to the Wise Ones and subsequent takeover of the SAS) really got me excited about Egwene. I thought that she, like Rand, had learned to embrace pain and become stronger in spite of it. Then her character took a dive right after the unification plot. It was disappointing to see a character undergo so much without changing for the better. Sure Egwene triumphed, but it's as if she took that triumph as a sign that she was justified in everything she did and was. Her redemption could have been achieved by communicating the anti-balefire weave to Nynaeve or Moiraine via TAR. If the Flame of Tar Valon had been used to Seal the Bore, I would have cheered for Egwene.
  14. I liked Tuon as well! Didn't know there was another person out there who felt the same. Anyone who can hold out against Semirhage (I believe Semi referred to Tuon as obdurate) gets my lifetime respect.
