Setting: Shayol Ghul, Tel'aran'rhiod


Point of view: Aviendha

Unable to stand Aviendha tries to crawl towards her gateway as Hessalam tries to shield her. She realises she can't reach it and starts to unweave the gateway as Hessalam begins to weave compulsion.

In her haste, Aviendha picks the wrong thread and the gateway explodes.

Point of view: Padan Fain

Fain, thinking of himself as Shaisam, moves towards Rand. He stops, as some of the mist which is a part of him has stopped sensing.

He comes across what he believes to be a familiar corpse, killed by the mists, but it reaches up and grabs him by the throat.

Mat tells him he once heard that if you catch a disease and survive, you can't get it again. Fain drops the dagger and Mat grabs it, ramming it through his heart.

Fain dies, his corpse melting away.

Point of view: Perrin Aybara

Perrin leaves Mat and enters the Wolf Dream. He grabs Gaul and takes him to the Two Rivers camp at the Field of Merrilor.

He leaves him to be Healed and returns to Shayol Ghul, as he knows Rand still needs him.

Point of view: Rand al'Thor

Moridin grabs Callandor and realises it is also a True Power sa'angreal and draws it through the sword. Rand tells him that to do so means death, but Moridin replied that he will have oblivion.

Nynaeve and Moiraine exploit the flaw in Callandor in the way that Min had worked out and take control of Moridin, before linking with Rand.

With saidinsaidar and the True Power, Rand seizes the Dark One through the Bore, using the protection of the True Power to prevent saidin from being tainted again. The Dark One tries to turn off access to the True Power but there is too much of it and he is unable to do anything.

Light explodes from Rand.
