Default Important scenes and themes

I just finished reading the book, and I loved it.

Now, on with the show.

Scenes:

1)Rand's meeting with Moridin
2)Egwene beig raised Amrylin by the loalists
3)Rand meeting with Tam
4)Verin's meeting with Egwene
5)The Seachan attack on the WT
6)Mat finally deciding to stop reacting and start acting
7)Masema's death
8)Rand destroying the Choden Kal
9)Too many more to put down, as the entire book was filled with important scenes

Themes:
1)Love, first and foremost. This is not me being soft, but how can you protect something if you do not love it?
2)Balefire
3)Too much pride is bad.
4)The need for everyone to join against the DO
5)Responsibility

If you have questions on why I think these are important, just ask.
I would also like to see what scenes and themes you guys think of as important.

I was upset about the lack of bitemes in TGS. I hope that they're not endangered or anything.

Left out from the list - Perrin seems to have made some sort of life decision as well.

I appreciated the pillow friends references. It was great to find out that Egwene was doing good Amirlyn work by advising the Novices on how to have proper female-female sexual relations.

But how did she get all that wisdom...time for a reread!
