  1. "the Man in Black Fled Across the Desert, and the Gunslinger Followed.”
  2. I think that Rand saw Perrin with a whitecloak, but I don't think it was ever specifically mentioned as Galad. I'm not real sure though. Rand specificaly mentions "When did Galad become a White Cloak?" in his internal dialogue there. Oh and I just want to go on the record saying No way no how does Egwene bond Galad in this or any other life time. Gawyn will be bonded by her right after she forces him to pull his head out of his arse.
  3. That has been on my mind for some time now, Rand, Mat, Perrin all 3 together at SG causeing the pattern to reweave the hole bored into it.
  4. I am kind of sad that I found this out... When i saw the spoilers I thought they were only spoilers for epople who had not read the prolouge and Ch1 and Ch2. I never dreamed that there would be REAL spoilers in here for those us us who had not read the entire book. I think I'll stay away from the forums for a while incase anymore Actual spoilers leak out. Farewell for a few weeks. :( I am really interested in how getting confirmation that the sword is justice will in anyway take away from your reading of the book. Some people over react to the smallest things but I will cut off now before I go on a rant about such things.
  5. We know Moiraine's bond to Lan snapped, which we have only seen be caused by death and severing, and we know Moiraine isn't dead. We know ter'angreal are dangerous things that can kill or burn out the unwary, and this one was malfunctioning violently. We know Lanfear was held by the Finns for a time, and that she came back in a new body, weaker. We know the Finns can't give a new body. The only thing we know that can cause a drop in strength like that is being Healed by a woman. So they were burnt out by the ter'angreal, held by the Finns, Lanfear died and came back as Cyndane, and was weaker when Healed. Evidence. Like I said. The first half of that has nothing to do with Lanfear at all. The rest still fits the alternative theory, so I don't see as how that disproves it. You seem ready to call out the 21 level list as just a theory with substantiating evidence, but when that "evidence" fits your own theory (or one you support), you think it is "proven" when it isn't. It's just a theory that fist the facts, but has a few holes (strength issues). I'll run it through for you. Mierin goes to Finnland in the AOL (by the TOG, Portal Stone, or even via T'A'R in the flesh). She wishes for max power/max beauty or both. She re-enters for the second time when Moiraine knocks her through. The Finns are pissed. They take back the gifts they give, her strength returns to Mierin level (which is still strong). She either dies later at the hands of the Finns, or the DO assassinates her (via T'A'R, Slayer, whatever) in order to free her and reincarnate the body. Now, if there is knowledge out there that makes the theory impossible, please share it. Forgive me, I don't have 3,000 posts. And I'm open to multiple ideas for how something could happen (unlike others on here, apparently). Both "theories" have their issues. But either could be true. Healed by a Woman Issues: The healed by a woman theory has an issue with the strength drop. The absolute strength drop is the best explanation, but is has problems. Namely, what if a weak channeler (Morgase) or the weak sister from Cadsuane's group got stilled and then healed by a woman? Would they be unable to channel? As the "absolute" strength drop has now taken them below zero? But I think it IS possible. And I'll reiterate, doesn't perfect female form and maximum strength in the power seem a little fishy? Some evidence to support the fishiness: When Cyndane feels Alivia and figures out she's stronger in ACOS at the cleansing, she thinks (something to the effect of) "she was stronger than Cyndane before the she was held, but no one could be stronger." Point being, how does she know "no one could be stronger" absent some wish to be as strong as one could be? How could anyone know no one could be stronger? If the DO could do it, he'd do it for all his channelers, wouldn't he. Again, if this theory has been disproven, please share with me the evidence that does so, so I (and the thread) can move on, instead of spouting vitriolic statements that it has already been disproven. Without the actual evidence disproving the theory, to me it just looks like circular reasoning. Otherwise, I think you have two theories that still fit the facts. The only problem I have with this theory is that Matt tried several times to go through the door again and it did not function for him, I do not have an exact reference from the book but I could swear I remember him trying to go through again.
  6. This would all be nice, but I highly doubt Dain and Perrin will ever be in the same room without one trying to kill the other.
  7. I will keep it in mind during my read through and let you know where i see some referances.
  8. Its mentioned a couple of times in passing, its the same for male or female you need to spend a few hours getting to know the place you travel from before you can open your gateway.
  9. Egwene doesnt really do much for me until KOD.
  10. Well I dont have the books with me but according to http://www.encyclopaedia-wot.org/ " Rand notes that there is now a great chasm in the earth all the way down to the underground ocean. A three-mile lake is forming outside the city."
  11. I look forward to Rand and Mat, in the last few books Perrin has just been killing me.
  12. Definately looking forward to more Rand, but man I am ready for him to get his mojo back it seemed like he was a wreck the whole last book.
  13. I am interested in why its unlikely to happen? Moiraine needs to be rescued, her and mat need to be present at the last battle. I think they both have too much left to do to be a last minute rescue mission. If I had to I would put my money on seeing the rescue this book.
  14. I cant decide between a Mat heading off to the Tower of Ghenjei for the rescue mission, or Cadsuane's questioning Semirhage.
