Perrin's Point of View:
Setting: Perrin's tent
Characters: Balwer, Perrin, Seonid, Edarra, Morgase
Seonid gives Perrin a report of the state of the world. Morgase overhears him mention that Gaebril was in fact Rahvin. She leaves the tent, shocked. Edarra tells Perrin about the Seanchan and that the Aiel may declare blood feud. He decides to attack the Whitecloaks. Balwer shows Perrin drawings, one of Perrin and one of Mat, telling him they are widespread. Perrin offers to pay Balwer more, but Balwer declines, saying the job itself is reward enough and if he was paid more, it would attract attention and he wouldn't be able to perform the job as well.
Rodel's Point of View:
Setting: Outside Maradon
Characters: Rodel, Lidrin, Yoeli
Rodel is fighting a Shadowspawn army and slowly being driven back towards Maradon. He has been barred entry from the city by the ruling noble there, who claims he is unwilling to help an invader. Lidrin breaks and charges alone into the trollocs, quickly falling. Rodel's horse falls to a trolloc spear and his leg breaks under it. As they are about to be overwhelmed, Yoeli leads a charge from the city, saving them.
Morgase's Point of View:
Setting: Perrin's camp
Characters: Morgase, Tallanvor
Morgase thinks of Gaebril and how she behaved while under his control and concludes that Perrin was right. Tallanvor tells her that he intends to leave, but she tells him what she has learned about Rahvin and he agrees to stay.
