"There is much ji in her decision. She will bend her enemies to her will, not run from them. I wish you well in your dance, Egwene al'Vere."

Setting: Rebel Aes Sedai Camp, Tel'aran'rhiod

Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Egwene prepares for bed with assistance from her maid Selame. She puts herself to sleep the way the Wise Ones taught her and enters the World of Dreams. She warns Nynaeve and Elayne about the blackmail attempt by Nicola and also about the escape of Moghedien by passing a message to them in their dreams. She then finds Amys and makes a request to meet her, which is accepted. Gawyn's dream almost catches her, but she moves to the meeting place in the Stone of Tear to wait for the Wise Ones.

Amys, Bair and Melaine arrive and sit down beside Callandor to hear what Egwene has to say. She informs them that she has been raised as Amyrlin to the rebel faction of Aes Sedai. They correctly deduce that she may only be a figurehead rather than truly in command. The Wise Ones let Egwene know that Merana and the other Aes Sedai have travelled to Cairhien but did not bring pigeons so they can report back. They do not tell her about Rand's kidnapping by the White Tower Aes Sedai or that the Aes Sedai have sworn fealty to him.

Egwene dreams of Gawyn after she returns from tel'aran'rhiod, but they are a Dreamer's dreams not normal dreams.

  • Gawyn walking barefoot across broken glass, his feet bleeding
  • Gawyn on a horse faced with a choice of two paths. One path lead to his death, the other to a long life.
  • Mat reaching into the sky to grab exploding fireworks, which would lead to many deaths
  • Egwene with her neck on a headman's block with an axe descending
  • Logain stepping over Rand's body to mount a black stone
  • A golden hawk connected to her while a man lies dying in a bed while a dark young man holds a brightly shining object
