Default Spoilers - TGS PoV count

Found this over at Wotmania 2.0:

Spoiler:
Here are the PoVs, but not matched (still, enter at own risk)

i feel like, with this book more than any other, matching up character povs to their chapters could be ginormous spoilers, so i'm not going to do that.


but here's a list and the # of chapters their PoVs are in. keep in mind they might have only a 3 paragraph PoV or it might take up the entire chapter. and i'm not counting the prologue.


Aviendha 4
Gawyn 5
Rand 11
Romanda 1
Cadsuane 5
Ituralde 2
Leane 1
Nynaeve 4
Egwene 11
Siuan 4
Saerin 1
Perrin 3
Tuon 3
Mat 4
Faile 1
Semirhage 1
Jesse 1
Min 2
Elaida 1
Adelorna 1
Sheriam 1

I wonder if one of these PoV's confirms a theory I've liked for a while:

Spoiler:
Leane 1

Is she the surprise DF? I personally think she was turned by a BA circle of 13 during the coup, before she was stilled and became a spy for them in Salidar. Right after she started exhibiting all sorts of new behaviors she excused by her stilling and needing to make a new life for herself.

Spoiler:
It's Sheriam, not Leane.


But no Thom POV. Lame! However, I predicted we'd deal with Jesse Bilal (Brown Ajah Head), and if my prediction is correct, it will be Saerin approaching her about the Black Ajah! But it might be Verin?

Maybe it's both...dun dun dun!

Yeah, I didn't read the fine print on the DM spoiler thread and I missed that one the first time around.

Light! It is tough staying away from these spoiler threads (except the title and pov ones, that is). Enough spoilage here though, notably the POV's/settings that are absent.

Also, I would love to see them matched up with chapters, if you're willing to make another post for that.

I'm at the mercy of the other boards, and no one's posted it yet. If and when I see it, I'll put it on straight away.

Sweet, thanks!

For now, here's what I have to say about the ones we know (spoilerish, but not beyond the chapter titles and extremely vague references to other small spoilers):

And now that I know he's got so much, I'm wondering if Rand will visit the White Tower in this book. I wasn't expecting him to - that's for sure. But there's a chapter called 'In the White Tower' that gives the impression of the fact that being in the Tower is a big deal to whoever's chapter it is. It's a few chapters before the one with Verin in the title, so it may or may not be linked to that. But Gawyn's big deal is Rand. His deal with Egwene - the viewings - is obviously tied up with his attitude toward Rand, which is essentially his only fault (which is what makes him annoying - even Galad, with seemingly no real faults, is less annoying because that hatred of Rand is soooo annoying). Or perhaps it will be Morgase. Perrin does have Travelers, so it could be Gawyn won't confront Rand at all.

Quote:

Yay! BS seems to have just a little bit of trouble making Rand recognizable, but it's not in a way that seems to affect the plot much, so I'm interested to see what we learn.

Quote:
Originally Posted by BW

Quote:
Originally Posted by BW

Quote:

Like I said, I have predicted that she will be the one to connects the Ajah Heads conspiracy with the Hunters conspiracy, through Jesse Bilal (whose point of view we also have). She loves puzzles, and the puzzle was set at the exact instant that her character, and her love of puzzles, were introduced - they caught Talene, and Talene was obsessed with the Ajah Heads conspiracy. From that, it can be determined that none of the conspiring Ajah Heads are Black. Even better would be if the other Blacks also were ordered to investigate it, but it's possible that Alviarin might have given this directive only to Sitters, who have the best chance of finding something out.

This is about what I expected for him, and it will be 4 full chapters, I think. No one else connected to him, unless he ties in with Perrin. Some people think that this wouldn't be enough for Ghenjei, that it would only be enough to set it up, and though I can definitely see it only being set up, I can also see it being fully resolved in only four chapters, and that's counting 1-2 chapters earlier in the book maybe to split from the rest of the party. The ter'angreal doorway experiences were only one chapter each, and still pretty good stuff.

It could possibly be a meeting of some sort with Egwene (a lesson maybe...Egwene's already had three with Ajah Heads, but not Jesse), but if that's the case, I still expect her to be in Saerin's point of view.

But yay for two Ajah Head points of view! We haven't had any so far!

I hope this means we get to see some of our other favorite Wise Ones along for the ride. I miss Amys and Bair.

Spoiler:
I think someone on DM posted that she'll go to Ruidean, or at least it was quasi-confirmed speculation. If so, will she be the first person to go through the glass columns ter'angreal since Rand spilled the beans to the Aiel at large? If so, will the vision in the columns be different, or will the Wise Ones come up with a new test for their apprentices?

Also, some speculation no spoilers beyond the chapter title and pov person:

Interesting, that the Conversation is not in Rand's point of view. But it makes sense, I think...
