  1. she probably believed it, or close enough. i don't think she'd have gone rogue with the shaido otherwise. rand appeared in the waste with 2 aes sedai (as far as the aiel knew). aes sedai have strange knowledge, so assuming that rand was instructed by aes sedai was not a stretch. as for couladin, maybe she assumes he lied to everyone to avoid spreading the secret of rhuidean. or maybe she had doubts on couladin too, but just couldn't follow rand.
  2. "It would have been a trilogy if the good guys could have brought themselves to talk to and understand each other"
  3. ok, so either the production has halted because of covid, or it has halted because they are done.... but why aren't we hearing anything? both occasions should have elicited some official statement. the previous time, when they stopped production for covid, they announced it. and i believe they would announce if they finished filming.
  4. i think, after the huge success of game of thrones, producers realized that you can make a big fantasy show and do it right with a big budget and you can reap huge dividends. before that, it was something you made to cater to a niche audience that would watch it regardless, while the larger audience wouldn't be interested in it regardless. so there was little reason to pull the big money
  5. i hope they do a decent job with battles. in all the movies i've seen, the depiction of warefare has been cringeworthy. there is no strategy, no tactics. no battle formations. if there are battle formations, they are used awfully. hollywood tactics all around. those books have a really good rendition of military strategy, and they are a key point of characterization for many, including main characters like mat and elayne. i would be really, really disappointed if they bungle those
  6. actually, sevanna managed to marry the previous two clan chiefs before bullying her way into a wise one. she did that after she got the authority to speak for the chief. mind you, i don't expect her to amount to much. most likely, if she ever manages to succeed in marrying a noblemen, hers will be just one more suppressed uprising in the seanchan empire.
  7. the last we see of sevanna, she had been captured by the seanchan and about to be made da'covale. indeed, the seanchan seem to consider that a punishment worse than death for the (formerly) powerful. this got me thinking. sevanna is young and pretty, so she will likely be made a shea dancer or something like that. pretty da'covale are bought by the blood to be used as eye candy, but sometimes the blood marries them. and sevanna based her whole modus operandi on marrying powerful men and exploiting their power. So, how likely would you rate that, within a few years, she'd be b
  8. just a minor curiosity in KoD 22, when there is the seafolk assembly, they are holding it atop one of the great seanchan ships stolen during the escape from ebou dar. it is described as very big and with balconies. there are also regular chairs, not the usual stuff attached to the ship. those things point to a luxury cruise ship designed for a noble patron. and maybe there are more similarities in the descriptions that i missed. is there any confirmation that the ship is indeed the victory of kidron that tuon used in WH 14?
  9. from the context, i believe elayne=elaida, or perhaps leane. they were talking about the strongest aes seday, and both of them rank at the top tier. i seem to recall that rafe stated that he wanted to address poliamory, but don't ask me for a source. anyway, i doubt she'll be cut as rand's lover. then again, if min is lesbian and elayne is bisexual and elayne takes rand and min together while rand takes elayne and aviendha, it would still be poliamory. and even more complicated. but i don't expect anything big there. i'm surprised nobody mentioned cutting the prologue.
  10. elayne. not for physical appearence, but because most others are disqualified by their personality. nynaeve will yell at you for no reason, sometimes get violent. Aviendha may pull out weapons. Egwene will be bossy and will always treat you as lesser. Any aes sedai will use you for her (generally pointless) schemes. The forsaken, of course, don't even deserve consideration. i don't care how physically attractive lanfear is, if i was to beat her with a baseball bat, i would wear rubber gloves, and would burn the bat and the gloves afterwards. and wash my hands.
  11. Well, there's no way they can afford to make 1 season per book and two books per season would be most realistic. But eye of the world + new spring would indeed count as two books.
  12. i lurked for a while hoping to find timely updates on the tv show production, but i saw this and i must try to clear this misunderstanding. robert jordan used a lot of real world mythology as inspiration for names, among other things. the idea is that the world of the wheel of time is both a distant past and a distant future of our world, and some of our myths are those stories twisted by time and retelling until they were unrecognizable. for example, the dark one's name is shai'tan, which is the name of the devil according to islam - itself derived from the satan of christian
