I wonder if Mat wearing the scarf around his head here is foreshadowing intentionally, or by coincidence, of the scarf on his neck.
Either way, there's some other strong foreshadowing there of events in TofM, though I won't say specifics to avoid spoilers.

And dense once again. What is this refering to in TofM?

Mat's blindness. Eye loss.

i think brandon may have been correct with his "coincidence" theory.

I see a lot of this "foreshaowing" thrown about but seiously, some of it could just be, you know, nohing.

Jordan didn't lace every sentence with foreshadowing.

Correct. He'd even foreshadowed that:
Sometimes a dream is just a dream.

Some things might be coincidental, but Mat's Odin parallels are probably among those things that have been planned since day one; I doubt those references are coincidental.
