Setting: Rebel Aes Sedai camp, south of Lugard

Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

After waking up before dawn, Egwene finds Theodrin Dabei and Faolain Orande in her study tent. They report that no one saw a man around Marigan's tent although some did notice Halima was around. Faolain and Theodrin explain that they are unhappy that most Aes Sedai do not properly support Egwene as their Amyrlin Seat. They tell her that they do not like her, but they are loyal to her. They swear an oath to her as evidence.

Egwene spots Myrelle riding by and asks her to wait. Lelaine and Romanda arrive to rant about Delana's proposal to declare that Elaida is Black Ajah. Gareth Bryne arrives and wishes to show Egwene something. Egwene has Siuan fetch horses and when Lelaine and Romanda begin bickering with each other, leaves for a ride with Gareth, Siuan, and Myrelle. They discuss the road ahead and what might happen when they reach Tar Valon. Gareth Bryne implies that the army is Egwene's, not the Hall's.
