Personally, I think that Rand (unfortunatly) will only be seriosly injured. He will then hand control of his forces to Narshima. Then he will go to Tar Valon to recover from his wounds. You might recognize that from coming from athurian legends. I should also point out that Tar Valon is an imperfect anagram of Avalon, the island were King Arthur was brought to after he was mortally wounded. He was carried there by four enchantresses, one of whom was Morgan Le Fay (Sounds kind of like Moraine), who was related to Elaine and Morgause, the later having a son named Gawain. Combined with the fact that Rand is carrying the sword Justice, which was owned by Artur Paedrag, this isn't an unlikely senario (being carried to tar valon by Moraine and 3 others probably elaine, avienda,nynaeve, min, or egwene.
