It has been guessed. The character with a viewpoint for the first time in AMOL is Tam.

I hope Tam turns out to be gay and Kari was just for show because Two Rivers folk are intolerant of alternative lifestyles.

Hopefully we'll get Tam's viewpoint when Rand tells him he's having 3 girlfriends at once and introduced Elayne and Avi to him. Should be fun.

The POV chapter for Tam is likely to be the chapter when he dies/is killed. BS may've felt the character deserved a first person POV for this event - considering who he is. Makes sense.

That's assuming he's not Demandred.

I kind of have a tendency to doubt it just because, in his last #wotrr, Brandon said one of the things that he liked about WoT when he first read it, in reference to anti-troping, was that Tam lived. Maybe it's different if the father who is not really your father dies at the end?

Other than that, I can see it happening. Perhaps I shouldn't expect Brandon to think anything like me.

Hey T, and others.

What is "anti-troping"?

A trope is a stereotypical plot line used throughout stories and such, so the anti-trope here is the hero's father doesn't die, as opposed to almost every other hero/superhero having to deal with a parent(s) being murdered.

Further OT, however if you're interested you can get quite lost looking at tropes. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage)
