  1. Umm... this is not the place for this discussion. Just a friendly heads up to get this thread back on track.
  2. Whiskeyjack, do you have a reference for that RJ quote?
  3. Basically that. I do have to point out that Latra was right for the wrong reasons when she refused to take part in LTT's plan, and Egwene's assembly of nations could play upon a similar theme. But Latra didn't help LTT, even unwittingly. How can you draw the parallel here? Because if saidar had been used on the seal it would have been tainted as well. Therefore, Latra was right to oppose the plan- it, ultimately, failed and tainted saidin. Her opposition prevented the tainting of saidar in addition to this. I don't see right as helping the Dragon. I see right as your acti
  4. Perrin stopping balefire with his hand. Rand and Tam's reunion.
  5. Rand and Tam's reunion is a tearjerker or was for me anyway. You can't really help it after how things went in The Gather Storm. Perrin and Mat, well, I haven't laughed that hard in a while at the series. I agree about Olver. As for AMoL being two parts, I would almost prefer it, I think. I don't know if it could be finished sufficiently in one book. I just don't think that will happen. Everyone, besides Tuon, Egwene and perhaps Mat have had their plotlines developed as far as needed in my opinion. I think it is about time for Tarmon Gaidon to begin! :D
  6. Yes, Lanfear got her wishes. What they are, who knows? Look at what Cyndane has been doing and guess away. As for melting the Tear portal, my guess is Moridin.
  7. There were no Aes Sedai in the circle, only Wise Ones. Brandon said that it probably wouldn't work if there were Oath-bound Aes Sedai in the circle. I just smacked myself in the head. Yes, I am an idiot in this regard. :/ I think they must have just been watching or might not have been there at all when it was forged. I did read this thing in 8 hours and my friend is borrowing it now so I may not be completely accurate in things like that. --- As for badass moments. Perrin takes the cake in this book followed by Rand and Mat who are tied for second. PERRIN 1) Believes
  8. I was talking about Perrin's hammer being the first power wrought weapon in a long time. Neald in a circle with Grady, several Aes Sedai and several Wise Ones took part in strengthening the hammer as Perrin forged it. It exhausted them all afterwards. It also seemed to Perrin that he was putting part of himself into the hammer. That is what I was referring to. Also, Mashadar is now following Fain around apparently or he has recreated it, at least from what we can see in the prologue.
  9. Yes, Perrin forging his hammer was pretty epic for me, especially after he named it. ;) Also, first power forged weapon made in a very long time. Dreamspike? If you are referring to the hammer name, no. One of my friends has my copy of the book and is reading it now, but the name is something like M'hallneir or something like that. Think Mjollnir if you know Norse mythology. ------- On a separate note, lets talk again about Rand cleansing Saidin. We know that when he cleansed Saidin, he channeled A LOT of Saidin into Shadar Logoth where it was attracted
  10. Yes, Perrin forging his hammer was pretty epic for me, especially after he named it. ;) Also, first power forged weapon made in a very long time.
  11. I am thinking it will come down to this in the end. 1) Rand/Nyn/Alivia with Callandor, Moridin using TP, Logain, Narishma, Flynn, most of the Ashaman outside the Black Tower Perrin (with wolves), Mat, Lan, Galad being the key powers for the light. 2) Demandred (with the second most powerful male Sa'Angreal), Graendal, Moghedien, Shaidar Haran, Slayer (with Dark Hounds), Bashere, Taim and the Black Tower, and the Seanchan being the key powers for the Shadow. 3) Egwene (with Vora's Sa'Angreal and Gawyn), the White Tower, and Fain are wild cards in my opinion I think Elayne has mostly pla
  12. Perrin meets him in T'a'R as the wolf, Boundless. He explains to Perrin that he is completely wolf and that is alright for him and Perrin begins to understand that he can accept the wolf part of him without losing his humanity. He does not have to be like the other wolves, but he does need to accept that the wolf is part of him. He needed to understand his pieces and while Hopper showed most of that to him, Boundless (Noam) was the final piece that put it all together. After that, Perrin took up leadership of his group willingly and without a second thought. He is like a completely new charact
  13. I know, but why Graendal? Moghedien would have served equally well. Does nuked mean Balefired? The big unnoticed thing from books 4-6... I'm kind of worried about that. Since no one but Terez has even hesitantly claimed to have figured this out, I wonder if maybe it isn't all that great as Brandon made it out to be. Moghedien has been busy getting all the assassin's after Mat and Perrin according to TGS. No, blasted with fire if I remember correctly. I think it was the wolf mainly because after meeting Noam as Boundless in T'a'R, Perrin finally gets himself sorted out a
  14. I think it sounds more like Rand, like this post from the RAFO board suggests. Lews Therin was "first among servants." Definitely possible. Broken Wolf... I wonder... Slayer? We know he is Moridin's servant now. He seems to be able to enter and leave T'a'R at will. Did some accident with T'a'R and becoming a wolfbrother happen to him? The fact that it says he will be consumed by the Midnight Towers makes me wonder. It appears Perrin has already been mentioned as the Fallen Blacksmith so who, exactly, is the broken wolf who will cause such a problem for the Light when he dies.
  15. I guess I will throw this in here because I can. These are my longstanding predictions for this book since shortly after TGS was released and a couple from before that were confirmed. Trued Predictions of Mine: 1) Mesaana = Danelle --- I did my research and it took me a while, but there is one Danelle scene in Caemlyn, I think, that confirmed it for me earlier in the series. 2) Mat's ashandarei was EXTREMELY important and we ALL missed exactly why. I was on the right track though that it didn't seem to belong with what he had asked, but, it turns out, it actually did belong with one of h
  16. 1) Mesaana is not dead. She is mentally broken. May not even have a mind left. Remember the Wise Ones talking about how one woman came back from her dreams as pretty much a vegetable? That's Mesaana after this book. 2) How Aran'gar died is finished in this book. 3) Uh, nope, Graendal is an utter failure... :/ 4) Asmo's killer 5) A bit of a cryptic Jendai Prophecy. Really caused more questions than it answered. 6) Yes, quite a bit. We find out who he has been working for this whole time. As for Slayer's background, still nothing more than we know, that he is an amalgamation of Luc and Isam
  17. I don't think it predicts doom and gloom for the Light, but rather for the Shadow. I commented on this already, but look at the specific wording in the last section. If it is a prophecy for the Shadow then that last line would be directed at them... not at those who are on the side of the Light.
  18. I would love to hear your take on the Dark Prophecy at some point Fish. If I recall, you have done a pretty good job of reading these things in the past. Also, what do you all think about "the three becoming one," "knowing the pieces" and Perrin with his three pieces of the hammer being forged? Foreshadowing here? If so, I would say the pieces are the following; Rand is the head of the hammer, Perrin is cap piece that holds it all together and Matt is the handle. Three ta'veren, three pieces of a hammer, the three must be as one. Just a thought. Also, Nalaam as Demandred? Possibl
  19. Daughter of the Night, she walks again. The ancient war, she yet fights. Her new lover she seeks, who shall serve her and die, yet serve still. Who shall stand against her coming? The Shining Walls shall kneel. Blood feeds blood. Blood calls blood. Blood is, and blood was, and blood shall ever be. ------ This certainly refers to Lanfear. The interesting thing in this is the part about Rand, assuming that he is the new lover she seeks. It says that he will server her and die, yet serve still. It also seems to imply that she will have something to do with destruction at the White Tow
  20. Oh, they get Traveling all right and from Avhienda's visions of the future, that is NOT a good thing at all.
  21. I remember someone around here suggested pushing the Gholam off a skimming platform. I wish I knew who that was... They called it perfectly. My reasoning behind Perrin dying is twofold. First, the mythology and second, the Dark Prophecy.
  22. Also, some of what people say in this book about Mat further solidify his ties with the figure of Odin... Based on several other things in the Norse mythology, I think that Perrin is going to die in TG, being killed by the leader of the Wild Hunt who will in turn be killed by someone very close to Perrin.
  23. I see. Have they bonded Asha'man? I assume not, right? Yet, they haven't informed the Hall? Weird. Oh excellent! I assume she's supporting his plan? And the Sedai thing was foreshadowed. She thinks how weird it is that men in the AoL were called Aes Sedai too. Glad this relationship seems to have worked out. So, relations between them are not cordial? EDIT: And thanks a lot for all these answers! Really making my day here! 1) They haven't bonded yet. The sticking point seems to be that Taim won't allow them to bond full Asha'man only Dedicated or Soldiers. 2
