Chapter Icon: Dream Ter'angreal
Point of View: Egwene
Egwene talks to the Wise Ones in the Dream
Egwene enters Tel'aran'rhiod in a light sleep. She considers scaring Nicola and Areina, but thinks better of it, as locating them would take too long. She warns Nynaeve and Egwene to not return until she has sorted out the matter. She calls Amys and asks her to talk. Amys arrives with Bair and Melaine. She tells them that she has been raised Amyrlin and that she is seen as a figurehead, to be manipulated, but she will not let that happen. She tells them that she will not bring Aes Sedai to swear to Rand. Egwene realizes they are keeping things from her and that they hold Aes Sedai in contempt. She makes Amys promise not to stop Merana from talking to Rand and also not to tell him that she is Amyrlin, as he might try to rescue her.
They leave her and she returns to her body to dream. First, she dreams of Gawyn with two choices, marriage to her or not, lying ahead of him. Next, she dreams of Mat and the Illuminators, and then of the headsman's axe falling on her while a would be rescuer runs to her. Then she dreams of Logain stepping over what looks like Rand's body, only for it to fall apart when she tries to touch it. She also dreams of a golden hawk linked to her, of a man dying while the world rejoices and mourns, though it is important he lives, and of other things.
