"They made a very bad mistake, didn't they? Of course, I made it first. The plump little grunter for the table turns out to be a live silverpike as long as your leg. Mother, please allow me to serve and advise."
   — Siuan to Egwene as the new Amyrlin

External summary

<<<   When Battle Begins    >>>
Setting: Salidar

Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Elayne and Nynaeve finally get to the topic they have been avoiding. Nynaeve captured Moghedien and Elayne made an a'dam they use to control her. Many of their discoveries have come from interrogating her. Egwene is still curious about Birgitte, but promises Elayne she won't pry without permission.

Egwene hopes to find more women who can channel, to make an agreement with the Aiel Wise Ones and eventually have all women who can channel associated with the White Tower in some manner. Nynaeve brings "Marigan", the disguised Moghedien to the study. Egwene puts on the a'dam and begins to assess her. She tells Moghedien she will be executed if she is caught lying. Egwene then asks about Traveling and is told how in general terms. Egwene has already worked out how it must work and opens a gateway to the Aiel Waste.

Siuan arrives to begin teaching Egwene about being Amyrlin. Egwene wants to leave Salidar and start moving toward the White Tower and asks Siuan how they can accomplish that.

Point of view: Romanda Cassin

Romanda is meeting with her strongest supporters, deciding how to keep Sheriam from having too much control over what Egwene does. She supported Egwene to make sure Lelaine did not become Amyrlin. Delana should be here also, but is not.

Point of view: Lelaine Akashi

Lelaine is meeting with her strongest supporters, pondering that she only voted for Egwene to make sure Romanda did not become Amyrlin. Delana should be here also, but is not.

Point of view: Delana Mosalaine

Delana is meeting with Halima, receiving instructions to pretend to support each of the factions arising in Salidar. Delana fears that she will be caught out by trying to do this, but Halima is insistent. Halima also wants Logain to be gentled again or executed.

Point of view: Siuan Sanche

Siuan is meeting with Lelaine and beginning the plan she and Egwene developed. They will play the factions off against one another and choose the course they believe is best.

Point of view: Nynaeve al'Meara

Nynaeve is meeting with Romanda trying to break her block on channeling. Romanda has her try some things, but insists that Nynaeve gossip, particularly about what Egwene said about Lelaine.

Point of view: Elayne Trakand

Elayne gives one of her dream ter'angreal rings to Sheriam. She then tells Sheriam that Romanda and Lelaine are recommending staying in Salidar, which Sheriam agrees with. Egwene is worried that if she follows their advice, they will have a hold on her for the future.

Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Egwene is taking a very welcome bath while pondering the battle she has just begun to become the Amyrlin rather than a figurehead.
