"A man is a maze of brambles in darkness, and even he does not know the way."

<<<   The Triumph of Logic    >>>
Setting: Tarasin Palace, Ebou Dar

Point of view: Matrim Cauthon

Mat returns to the Wandering Woman from his visit to the Palace, feeling fortunate to have escaped from Tylin. Mat arranges for Vanin and Harnan to begin watching Carridin after he explains the Darkfriend he saw visiting. Upstairs on the way to his room he is attacked and ends up killing two men sent to abduct him.

He finds a note in his pocket warning that Nynaeve and Elayne need to be more careful if they are not to end up back at the White Tower. Mat figures either Joline or Teslyn must have slipped him the note during their encounter in the hallway in the Palace. The dice are still rolling in his head.

Point of view: Joline Maza

Teslyn tries to convince Joline they should be trying to get Elayne and Nynaeve back to the tower and that bringing Mat and Aviendha would be a bonus. Joline convinces her that there is no rush and they are both upset with Elaida for sending them to Ebou Dar.

Point of view: Falion Bhoda

Falion is torturing one of the Wise Women of Ebou Dar for information on ter'angreal but accidentally kills her instead. Arnin and Nad are ordered to dispose of the body. She and Ispan are still following orders from Moghedien even though the Forsaken has not contacted them for a long time. Falion no longer believes there is a cache to be found. Instead she believes they should capture Nynaeve for Moghedien and perhaps Elayne also.

Point of view: Noal Charin

Noal is watching a goldsmith's house where two Aes Sedai are staying. He sees two men leaving the house with a wheel barrow and wonders what they are up to. He touches his forehead, trying to remember something, but all he knows it is something he has to remember soon.
