|Setting: Rebel Aes Sedai camp|
Point of view: Egwene al'Vere
Egwene al'Vere is meeting with Siuan Sanche and Sheriam Bayanar. She decides her army needs to pause for a day but Sheriam believes they should pause for a longer time. Chesa, Egwene's maid, makes comments supposedly to herself but meant as advice to Egwene. While reading reports Egwene wonders where Logain Ablar is now since she arranged for him to escape from Aes Sedai captivity. There are rivalries between Sheriam and two of the sitters in the Hall, Romanda and Lelaine. Egwene plays the factions against each other.
Egwene puts on the a'dam bracelet that connects her to Moghedien, known to others as Marigan. Egwene forces Sheriam to admit that ten sisters, two from each Ajah except blue and red were sent back to the tower to spread rumors that the red Ajah arranged for Logain to be proclaimed as a false dragon.
Egwene feels a stab of pain through the a'dam bracelet, realizing that a man has channeled off the necklace that Marigan wears. Egwene hurries to Marigan's tent only to find her gone.
