Forums: Index > The Inn > Town people come back to life

I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to how the towns people that as stated were previously killed by trollocks and dreadlords somehow came back to fight them again?

This happens right before one of the ash'man split the rocks blocking the river. When Matt is approached about it later in the novel he brushes the ash'man off and never gives an answer. 

They were the people from the village of Hinderstap. ---- Willie - HtS 14:53, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

The people of Hinderstap were affected by a bubble of evil. Everynight they would maul each other to death, and wake up the next morning in their beds with nightmares and perfect health. Anyone who dies or sleeps in the town will be stuck to the bubble of evil. Knowing this from past experiences where Mat and the Band of the Red Hand traveled through the town looking for supplies.  Mat used the town in the last battle, using the bubble of evil against the dark one (opening a gateway to the town each night). Mat also placed 100 Red Hands in the town, so they would be able to fight with the people. I assume that when the dark one was sealed back in the Bore, that they were realeased from this curse.
