|Setting: Black Tower, Field of Merrilor|
- Point of view: Androl Genhald
Welyn Kajima sits in the inn's common room and tells the gathering that Logain Ablar and Mazrim Taim have patched their differences, citing a concern over the Last Battle. Androl Genhald stands by the door with Pevara Tazanovni and watches the unbelievable scene; he notes that Welyn's face and voice were not as he remembered. Jonneth Dowtry demands to know where Logain is, and why he can't speak for himself. Androl respects the honesty from the Two Rivers Asha'man but silently pleads for caution. He is dismayed that there is an Aes Sedai in his head and assumes the void in order to shield his thoughts. Pevara admits that it is now harder to read his thoughts. Lind Taglien cuts off Jonneth's questioning and the Asha'man leaves the inn.
- Point of view: Rand al'Thor
Rand thinks on how he has changed and what more he can do, such as learning Healing from Damer Flinn. Aviendha arrives and tells him he is to bed her. They exchange flirtatious banter, and as the Maidens cheer on Aviendha and insult Rand, they slip into his tent.
- Point of view: Pevara Tazanovni
Pevara tells Androl she suspects Taim has a Ter'angreal that prevents gateways. As they talk, she realizes she can sense a little of what he is thinking, but that he is much better at sensing what she is thinking. Dobser arrives, lured by Evin and is shielded by Pevara. Leems and Welyn come in, and try to shield Pevara, who is able to slice Leems' weave. In his shock from the recoil, she also shields him. Welyn runs, but she trips him and Androl knocks him out with a cudgel.
