WoT If...Moridin Is a Double Agent? in Theory Blog Posted December 16, 2012 Demonchild, I agree. I think that's what Rand's plan is, to use the True Power, rather than saidar and saidin, to touch the Dark One and hold him in place. Lews Therin says that he used saidin to touch the Dark One during the sealing, so Rand knows he has to use something to hold him--and he won't want it to be the One Power because he'll be afraid they will get tainted again. However, I think this desire to use the True Power will be Rand's downfall. I don't think it will work the way he thinks it will because it is the Dark One's own power. Perhaps after this mistake, saidar and saidin linked can protect one another if used together.
