  1. Never compare BSG to this... The ending of that series is absolutely awful... Watch some of Ron Moore's commentary on those last episodes... Especial parts about throwing darts at a story board to decide who is or who isn't a cylon... That series made a bunch of promises and emphasized a lot of plot devices that turned out to be absolute BS... I have never watched a single episode of that show since... HORRIBLE ending.
  2. Curious if this was ever discussed. But it appears to me that Tuon may have started channeling in KOD. Ch.11 A Hell in Maderin - during the knife fight in the street. Mat turns to face the 8 attackers he sees. At the end of the fight, he notices that Tuon and Thom had not run due to another band of attackers. 6 men with swords would have been a tough fight for gimped Thom and unarmed Tuon and Selucia. Both Tom and Selucia take wounds, however Mat notices that Tuon has not a scratch. "Mat wondered whether Tuon had taken part there, too, but he could not see a spot of blood on her anywhere..
  3. Not to mention Rand via Logain has deployed a bulk of Asha'man throughout Rand'land. To hold off the Seanchan, and fight along the Blight. The whole BT bugs me a bit as a plot hole by RJ to begin with. Granted Rand's time is precious. But we see him in T'A'R spying on Elayne, Egwene, etc.. We see him jumping around for his battles with various FS. Yet, he doesn't spend ANY time checking in on the BT. A BT who he entrusted to Taim, someone he barely trusted from the moment he met him. Above any of the things he has going on, making an army of channelers (the most powerful force in all of R'
  4. Just came across this.. WH, Norry.. "From what I saw of him, my Lady, I myself would not believe him dead unless I sat three days with the corpse." === Curious, will having an empty/dead body in the real world allow the Birgitte-like resurrection to be slightly different. Will Nynaeve simply do what she saw Moh' do, or will this allow her to return him to his body and maybe not immediately need the Warder bond. Has anyone ever asked RJ or BS why she needed the bond to survive her artificial return from T'A'R??
  5. If Rand is resurrected a'la Birgette, he will only have memories of this life eventually... His previous LTT memories will fade away. I am very interested to see that whole aspect play out, because I think Rand suspects some of it...judging by the 1st chapter? prologue? I forget. Somehow the taint itself is what allowed the LTT soul to be born into the 3rd Age world with all it's memories from the previous life accessible. And they slowly were revealing themselves to Rand, the more contaminated he became.. According to Birgette, normally when she was reborn into the world, she has no
  6. Yikes, seemed pretty clear.. lol Cannot wait for Mat to be reunited with the Horn... Mat's funniest/greatest moments are all tied to that thing. Whenever he thinks he has escaped, he remembers he has to be the one to sound it..Or be dead.. Haha .. Think it will be his idea to use it to get Rand back??
  7. "Edit: Gah! Terez got me by a few seconds..." From Rand's own musings when the Horn is sounded as well.. Something along the lines of looking among the Heroes and not seeing Lews Therin among them. And the following conversation with Hawkwing. Course that's the one book not on my Kindle/Nook Apps.. LOL
  8. The pattern itself is the DO's prison. Created by the Creator, via the Wheel of Time.. While the DO is touching the pattern (thanks to Lanfear) it cannot repair the threads of the pattern that are currently ripped from existence by the DO.... The WoT itself has repaired the damage each and every time this age has come in the past. It is the only known device of the Creator left to the world/existence that can make a whole and complete pattern/prison...
  9. Yes! AoL flashbacks, one more time.. We have to come full circle to the opening scene of the series!! Brings me to another thought too, we had LTT using some crazy unknown weave to make Dragonmount and burn himself to shreds... The ending has to top that moment!!
  10. I fear for Min. So that's who I am voting on. I think her special ability, is crucial for this side of the Last Battle.. But the Wheel may not let her and that ability survive past it.. Unless, a scenario where Rand, Frodo's from the world.. Maybe she and he together leave for an isolated corner of the world.. Regardless if he survives the Last Battle, I don't think he will be an active member of the world, post-Last Battle.. More though, as a fan/observer of novels/television. With this much foreshadowing of the hero not surviving, if he does, the protagonist often will lose someone ver
  11. Well, it's two separate questions really. 1)Who is his alter ego?? 2)What has he been up to?? 1) we can answer with almost certainty as Terez points out. 2) we cannot answer with certainty, because we have been intentionally left in the dark. Much like Taim until Moridin told us. But a lot of time has passed since he was released and AMOL. Certainly building up a Murandian army didn't occupy that entire time. What were his combined plans with Semirhage and Mesaana?? He had his hands in both places, but nothing was revealed of what HE was up to in regards to either when they fell. I
  12. The chapter feels more like awkward Mat from the TGS than the more RJ Mat from TOM. He repeats the whole, "I have spent time coming up with a backstory" thing. This is NOT Mat's character. He would roll the dice and trust to his luck. Not spend a bunch of time coming up with a cover story. It must be tough though for someone who doesn't drink / get drunk / gamble to write a character like Mat, however. There are times when I get the sense from Brandon that he is condemning drinking and/or those who drink in some of the language the characters use before doing so or after going to the taver
  13. Perhaps the Wheel will not be destroyed. Perhaps it will get knocked off its axis and stop turning, converting circular time to linear time. Or perhaps the wheel will continue turning, but the angle (course) of its rotation will be shifted enough to radically change the future. Time is always linear in WoT. The pattern however is what is repeating.
