A Crown of Swords: Chapter 8
Chapter Icon: A serpent twisted through a square
Point of View: Egwene
Egwene learns of ferrets sent to the White Tower and feels a male channeller freed Moghedien.
Egwene deals with trivial matters and thinks on how Sheriam would keep her in the dark if she let her. She tells Sheriam that she has discovered two sisters of every Ajah, except the Blue, left a few days after Leane and Siuan arrived and asks why. Sheriam tries to avoid answering but Egwene forces her to tell her that they were sent to return to the Tower in order to spread tales of Logain being set up by the Reds. Siuan realizes that they were worried that the Sitters might be Black Ajah, which is why none were told. Egwene is pressing the issue about how much trouble this would cause if it came out when she feels a sharp pain, followed by the feeling of hope from Moghedien, and then nothing. She goes to investigate. After finding her gone, she realizes that a man channeling has freed her and worries that it might have been one of the Forsaken.
