Light and Shadow

Chapter Icon: Wheel and Serpent

Points of View: Perrin, Rand, Moiraine


Perrin kills Lanfear and Rand reforges the Dark One's Prison with a combination of saidin, saidar and the True Power.


Perrin's Point of View:

Setting: Tel'aran'rhiod

Characters: Perrin, Lanfear

Perrin stumbles through the wolf dream, where everything is dead. He sees Shayol Ghul ahead and Dragonmount behind, though the two should be too distant for that. He moves himself to the entrance to the Pit of Doom and goes in, where he sees Lanfear. They see Moridin holding Callandor next to Rand, Nynaeve and Moiraine. Lanfear uses compulsion on Perrin and tells him to kill Moiraine, while she kills Nynaeve. He feels it is wrong, but cannot help his hands rise. He thinks it is the wolf dream, and here, his dreams become reality. He thinks on how he loves Faile and the compulsion vanishes. He reaches out to Lanfear and breaks her neck.

Rand's Point of View:

Setting: Shayol Ghul

Characters: Rand, The Dark One

Rand pulls the Dark One into the Pattern and begins to kill him. He realises that the vision of the future in which the Dark One had been killed was true, and that he must allow the Dark One to exist. He draws saidin, saidar and the True Power and weaves them together, in their pure forms, not as the individual five powers and reforges the prison.

Moiraine's Point of View:

Setting: Shayol Ghul

Characters: Moiraine, Nynaeve, Thom

Moiriane pulls Nynaeve out of the Pit of Doom, unable to see because of the blinding light. She sees the blackness in front of Rand shrink away until it vanishes.
