|<<< To Awaken >>>|
|Setting: Pit of Doom, Tel'aran'rhiod, Shayol Ghul|
- Point of view: Rand al'Thor
- Point of view: El'Nynaeve ti al'Meara Mandragoran
Moridin's knife strikes Alanna, but due to Nynaeve's herbs she is awake enough to release her bond to Rand before she dies. Rand raises Callandor to strike down Moridin, but Moridin stabs his own hand with a knife, causing Rand to twitch and drop Callandor.
- Point of view: Perrin Aybara
Perrin fights Slayer and, for the first time since killing the Whitecloaks in the stedding years ago, fully lets go of his emotions.
Slayer shifts into the real world, thinking he's escaped but Perrin follows him. They run through Aiel and Darkhounds until Slayer sees him and shifts back into Tel'aran'rhiod.
He sees Perrin again and shifts back and forth, trying to get away. Perrin catches him and finally kills him.
He sees a group of shadowspawn with pock-marked faces, but ignores them. The Darkhounds break through the Dragonsworn defenders. He takes a group of Aiel to the mouth of the Pit of Doom as a last defence, meeting the spirits of wolves called back to the world by the Horn of Valere. He leads them against the Darkhounds.
- Point of view: Matrim Cauthon
Perrin notices Mat arrive and ushers him over. He warns him about the Darkhounds. Mat tells him that Fain is here and that the Horn has been blown but regretfully no one knows what has happened to Faile.
As he is talking, Mashadar rises up and knocks him off his horse.
