The point is, this has already been beaten to death, resurrected and then beaten again here, I'm not sure what this adds to the conversation about it.

Has this been conclusively proven? I always thought Moghedien basically admitted to it in AMOL when she talked about impersonating other Chosen?

So, any idea what the reasons were why the Fade wrote the Dark Prophecy there that RJ wanted to RAFO?

Why not make cuendillar armor?

I always wondered what the point of Bode was, since she was a "name" character that served no real purpose. I definitely got the sense that perhaps RJ intended other things for her, so this is...

Another weird thought--if Nakomi is Tigraine/Calian and she represents the ending of an age, could it be true that Calian is ALWAYS the mother of the Dragon soul?

But if you are forcing someone to choose how to live, without the DO because Rand killed him, is it truly a "good".

Also, couldn't someone have just as easily said that God planned for the woman to run in the park and that's why she did it? How is that any more or less measurable than saying "she decided to"?

Weren't they wearing masks at Falme? Also, Rand doesn't know what Tigraine looks like or even that she was his mother at Falme, so I don't think it would have meant much to him anyway
