Don't see what this has to do with anything.

Why not? Rand dies. In the interim, Mat and Tuon hammer out the details of the Consolidation. Rand is resurrected, seals the prison, no more Pattern unraveling.

This can happen at any point before Rand dies, or after he is resurrected.

Not sure why you brought this up.

This won't happen till after Rand dies.

This has nothing to do with Rand dying.

Why? Most of the important stuff will happen while he's dead.

I don't see how. Also, the fight is necessary, because Rand has to die. It's probably important that someone on the side of the Light kill him, actually...if Moridin or Fain managed it, Rand's soul might be toast.

Go back and read Tuon's points of view in TGS and you might find out why. It mostly has to do with the fact that Tuon believes that Rand is a dangerous entity that needs to be contained, and also with the fact that she believes (probably rightly) that she has to complete her Consolidation of Randland before the Last Battle can be won. She sees herself as the savior of the world. Therefore, she has to continue to invade Rand's territory, and Andor is the logical place to go. Strongest nation, descendant of Aldeshar, last nation to fall to Hawkwing's Consolidation, center of the land, marath'damane queen, rumored masses of marath'damane in the Palace. Also, she knows Mat is in Caemlyn, or that he was going there, and she wants him back.
