  1. This make absolutely no sense based on what has already happened and what we have learned through RJ answers. First off, in TGH, we see the heroes come out and fight for Rand. If your explanation was correct, then Rand would have become an empty shell, as well as any of the other characters that may be heroes (we don't know if they are and at this point do not have any indication, save birgette). Second, if they are reborn, how will they fight. They will be what, between one and two years old? Are we gonna have an infant Hawkwing come and lead the armies as Mat's co-general? Here is what
  2. Especially among all of the overage ones Egwene is going to put on the books. Especially since none of the Novices or Accepted are required to take any oaths. She thinks the Tower is largely safe from internal rot. She is so wrong. I believe the book had the names of some of the accepted and novices that were darkfriends. Not only that, Egwene knows that the accepted and novices do not take the oath and there may be some there (unless it said in the chapters she had them take it then release, like Nicola did. She may also have done this anyways)). She also knows that any that w
  3. I have never seen RJ say anything like that. He has however said that none of the main female characters are ta'veren, which rules out Egwene. Rand needs Egwene to be Amyrlin, so the Pattern has made it happen for him. Its an effect of Rand's ta'vareness. And we have seen what seems to be a giant expansion of this effect for Mat, and that means Rand (and prolly perrin too) will have an even larger bending.
  4. I can't remember, but I thought Rand told him when he sent Mat to Salidar to fetch Elayne? I'm just going off memory here, so take with a grain of salt.
  5. I personally think the extra spoiling was due to the TP use from rand and how he was connected to it.
  6. What body would there be? Where is the body from Sammael? We see him get touched by Mashadar, but that is it. What about Rhavin and Be'lal? Neither of them had bodies, because they were balefired. Just because we don't see the body does not mean she is not dead. The fact we see the compulsion gone, something she is the master of (and HAD to be done with saidar in this case), if enough. Who else could have done the compulsion? Semi is dead, Mesaana is not going to be a part of this, and I doubt Cyndane or Moggy came for a visit at this precise time. You guys say that we didn't have
  7. The fact she was so built up and so cunning is what helps play into this scene. Rand went off the deep end, loosing his humanity to the point that not even one of the best of the forsaken could come close to predicting this. Him doing this is absurd. Graendal knows he has LT knowledge, she knows how LT works, and she knows how Rand has acted in the past. She fears balefire for its effect on the pattern, as did the rest of the forsaken. She knows the light fears it as much or more. How would she even anticipate that the most powerful ta'veren and champion of the light would take an actio
  8. Here is what I said about Graendal dying in the favorite scene thread This is the reason for the scene. As for the evidence that she is not dead, in reality there is none. In fact every single piece points to her being dead. Lets take a look: 1) Rand at this point is actively using his memories as LT. He knows how she works and her methodology. She knows LT better than he currently knows her (he is not 100% LT) but LT never would have done this, nor would Rand based on EVERYTHING he has done up to this point. Her expecting this would be like us expecting the communist dictat
  9. I have seen this opinion a few times and I am going to have to disagree. I think he let her go for the same reasons as he let moggy free and revived the others. He thinks they are his best tools in this age. I do not believe Moridin was faking his anger in the prologue or lying about what she was supposed to do. She was supposed to capture Rand without hurting him. When SH came into the cell, he reiterated that she failed and that she had to complete her mission. That is why we did not see her go to Cads first. She picked up the sad bracelet and went directly to Rand and placed it on him
  10. No. You would have had to have all those AS who made it be darkfriends with intimate knowledge of how the TP works. Not only that, the DO would have to have given rand permission in tSR to use the TP, which he had no reason to. Lastly, Rand would have realized the dif between the tp and saidin then...when he reached through callandor he felt the taint and the sweetness of saidin. The TP, described in tGS is very different. I do not think there is an angreal for the TP: most forsaken barely ever used it, and if one of them were able to make angreal in this age we would have heard. Edit:
  11. This scene was not just about killing Graendal but about the depths Rand has fallen. It shows that Rand has gotten to the point he is willing to commit atrocities and is as bad as the shadow now. The fact that Graendal did not expect this shows that LT never did anything, or even considered anything like this (or she would have been worried about it in a PoV), that rand has abandoned the light. This is why it is a great and powerful scene. It is also why, even with the other theories going around already, Graendal will stay dead.
  12. I think my favorite scene was when Rand reached out and grabbed the TP. I was shocked..I honestly could not believe it. Very powerful scene and touching it took the lions share of the fault for his complete loss of emotions for the reminder of the book. Next to that, Egwene meeting with Eladia was awesome. Taking the beating there with the sitters watching, proving her point. Great scene. As for complaints, I disagree about Perrin having nothing get done. I think some important strides were taken by him. He poured everything into getting faile (too much imo) and now he had nothing. H
  13. Mordin is Nae'blis because he is the only forsaken that has the same goal as the DO does. Yes, the other forsaken want the DO to be free so they can have their infinite power or to have liberties they didn't under the light, but that's really the only things they are focusing on. Their goals are not at all in line with the DO except for getting him free (which is enough for him to use them, but also prolly one reason he has no trust). How can we tell this? First off, they always talk about their coming power and kingdoms, etc when we see the point of view. We also see them talking about
  14. Well, its possible that rand himself is necessary for the DO to actually escape. Otherwise there were no reasons to try and turn him, other than pride. Also, if the seals fail, even if the DO does nothing, effects will be felt. I think some of the things happening are inherent with the DO having access. Much of it would happen anyway..decay, the dead rising, corridors. These are due to him being more free, I doubt he has to take any action for these things, they just happen. The DO cannot hide (nor does he want to) He has to win. He cannot win without going on the offensive
  15. Yeah, I would imagine if the act of stabbing Ishy in the chest with the sword melted a power-wrought blade that there is more to him then just flesh and blood. I've noticed a lot of people tend to overlook the fact that Ishy/Moridin is more then just another Forsaken, or even first among the Fosaken. He has a special connection with the Dark One that I still don't think we've seen all of yet. As for the battles, I would say that Rand tapping into the Eye is what made him a match for Ishy, and I don't think even at the very end that Ishy had any intention of killing him. I think at the ver
