Spoiler Filled Synopsis
Ishamael speaking in the old tongue recites an old prophecy as he uses the One Power to release another of the Forsaken, Lanfear, into the world.
In the White Tower, Nynaeve has been raised as an Accepted following her trial in the Arches. She is traumatised by her experiences in the Arches and her mentor Liandrin offers her insights on how to cope with becoming an Accepted. Liandrin tells Nynaeve of Perrins's capture by the Seanchan close to Falme, which leads to Nynaeve, Egwene, and Elayne sneaking out of the tower to mount a rescue. But Nyneave is taken off guard by the appearance of Liandrin who ambushes them, using the One Power to subdue them.
Meanwhile, Perrin and Elyas look for the Shienarans and Loial, where Perrin is told that he is Wolfbrother by Elyas. As Perrin tries to understand this he bonds with the wolf pack and in particular with one wolf called Hopper befriending Perrin. Elsewhere, as Min and Matt settle down for the night at a Tavern on the road, she discovers that Liandrin’s contact she is meant to meet is Ishamael, one of the Forsaken. He offers to rid her of her visions if she brings Mat to Cairhien.
Moiraine Damodred arrives in Cairhien, where she heads to her family home to meet her little sister, Anvaere. Their relationship is strained and Moiraine focuses on her task at hand as she sets about her investigations to find Lan. She also meets with Logain, and offers to end his life if he first helps her train Rand to use the One Power. Back at her home her sister forces Moiraine to realise that she no longer holds any power over her, and if she wants to know where her ginger headed boy is she will have to ask politely.
Elsewhere, Lan stays with Alanna and her warders, who attempt to help him through losing his bond with Moiraine. Alanna finds a prophecy that reveals that the Forsaken Lanfear has returned to the world.
Meanwhile, Rand and Selene leave Cairhien to travel to Selene’s mountain lodge, where a Fade attacks them. Rand kills it with the One Power, and confesses his love for Selene, who chooses to stay with him despite his ability to channel, and reveals a secret of her own, as she begins to channel.
Before she can do anything, Moiraine arrives and stabs Selene through the heart before cutting her throat. Pleading for Rand to run, she reveals Selene is Lanfear. As they flee, Lanfear starts to recover from her wounds.
