    From what it sounds, looks like the rookie writer drew this and spent all of approximately five minutes digging this up from a press and a random google search that went sideways. Still, Rafe has been spot on with a lot of things and I don't think this is how it is going. I also think this is an important step as the series is going up the chain and it's not just lingering in development purgatory.

    We're speeding up here: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/07/31/rafe-judkins-wheel-of-time-tv-series/

    After the end

    It's a pretty good bet that if that happens, the Asha'man will mention it to somebody and I don't think Cads will be able to control the BT as well as the WT.

    After the end

    I got another question: whose body did Ishmael take? For all we know, Rand could be out there in the body of a guy who was driving around the free candy wagon. How would they know it couldn't channel?
  7. Samitsu Tamagowa also offered Flinn gold as I recall, and we're not talking about the AS as bribers. Point is I think it's a mistake to assume that all or even most are magical Mata Haris or shameless hussys. Yes they may sleep with a man to gain knowledge and/or influence, but I don't think that's the default go to route with them.
  8. Compulsion and balefire did exist. (the dark ajah knew of Compulsion, and Moiraine certainly knew about balefire). Trollocs and Myrrdraal are still there regardless of whether or not the Forsaken are reborn. IMO the Forsaken suffered a really bad case of "Old World Blues" ("Age of Legends Blues" I guess). They couldn't see the present for what it was and adapt their strategies accordingly. They pinned their hopes on one or two sa'angreal and didn't use what the age offered them. As a result it was the people that were supposedly backward that were coming up with the new strategies that the Dark Side couldn't imagine in a hundred years (Warder Bonding being the biggest example)
  9. The issue is that according to reproduction 101, women are born with all the eggs they will ever have and they lose those eggs at more or less at a constant rate. That's not even dealing with the genetic problems of giving birth later on in life. So unless they're cycles slow down tremendously we have a logic hole here.
  10. While it's possible, I don't think it's an everyday thing with the AS rather than leaning on their power (small p, as opposed to the Big P) and authority to get what they want or need out of a particular situation. This topic does raise another question: exactly how are these women getting pregnant any time past 60-70 (and that's a really really long shot)? Moreover what would be the genetic implications of this, both for the men and the women.
  11. So at the end of LTT's assault on Shayol Ghul, the Forsaken are trapped, but not killed, in the sealing. My question is would the Chosen have fared better if they had been killed outright and allowed to be reborn (albeit with their memories wiped) vs living with memories of an age that had long since passed. I'm of the opinion that they would have given the fact that little of that technology survived in the first place and that they were so focused on the past they completely ignored what the new world had to offer. I don't know if it would have been enough to turn the battle, but it would have definitely be a lot closer.

    Throw in something about midgets and a goat and you could probably describe every one of my weekends that way.

    Red Ajah Murderers

    Probably the same reason white supremacists consider themselves to be good people. In their minds,the ends justify the means. Also, there are probably enough Red Ajah like Pevara to think of themselves more like a check rather than the cause.
  14. So prior to the events of WoT, male Aiel channelers went north to fight the Dark One and became the evil cannibals we saw in aMoL. Now that the Dark One is sealed away, what happens to them? Do they go to the Black Tower? Do they form an equivalent Wisemen's society?
  15. And that happens after LTT and the rest of the followers go insane, as evidenced by the point of view opinion stating that the banner should be burned along with every other memory of the man.
