View Full Version : Was Lanfear right about challenging the DO and the Creator ?

Re-reading AMOL; Lanfear had a pretty accurate idea of the DO's mortality. Little more squeeze and Rand could have killed the DO. Everyone including Moridin seemed to think something like this impossible. Yet Lanfear was ready and waiting for it.

Could she have been right about taking on the Creator as well? She did show a pretty good understanding of the metaphysics of the universe.

I guess with the Creator it might be harder to find him and challange him. :D

But seriously, i dont know. How much of what happend was a concious decision of the dark one to have a discussion with Rand. He had to sacrifice SH for it.
Dont know if Rand could have touched te Dark One the same way otherwise.

I know Fain "unwittingly sidestepped the Pattern", but it's almost like the Pattern could easily have incorporated him into a role as New DO should something have gone wrong, like Rand having a hand spasm or something. Shaisam could've been shut away to keep the Wheel turning and prevent the DO-free world Rand tried to create (which, honestly, I'm still ok with).
