Elayne's own repeated Dreams of being captured by the Shadow's agents, bluntly flies in the face of that bolded assumption.

As does Nynaeve al'Meara fears of being tapped on the shoulder by Moghedien.

Both Elayne, Nynaeve's fears & dreams remain valid. The element of surprise remains a factor. Questions of when, where, how, what--remain open-ended.

Just because one knows Black Ajah exist, does not mean one knows their plans of operation.


Just ask a Linebacker or Safety... do you bite on a run looking play or is that hand-off a set-up for a pass instead? Your time window to decide is very limited....

In WoT terms, Graendal simply waited to act too late to flee Earth for a safer Mirror World. Outcome? Graendal has become Shaidar Haren's newly chosen play toy.
