Mat follows him up a small hill and they have a better look at the mountain, plus now see Tar Valon and the White Tower.

A while later, they enter the city. Walking through the throng, Rand gets a sample of some food, which he likes, but Mat says he's not hungry. They head for an inn that Thom told Rand about, The Light's Blessing, and get a room.[4] Rand is amazed how expensive the room is. Mat goes directly to a bed and lies down. Rand reassures Mat that he didn't kill any of the Grinwells and that it was the Fade that did it.

Moiraine, Lan and Nynaeve enter the Warder' quarters in the White Tower. Moiraine starts talking about the Amyrlin Seat, but Nynaeve interrupts and wants to know where the other Two Rivers folk are.

Scene 8 - It's All Right To Be Afraid#

Moiraine explains to Nynaeve that it's all right to be afraid, considering she's now touched the True Source and knows its size and also knows her power compared to others. It's a whole new world for her, just as it was for Moiraine when she first touched the True Source.

Scene 9 - Violence Is In Us All#

The TuathaAn are getting closer to Tar Valon. They pass a guiding stone.[5] The TuathaAn' dogs are eating some deer that they killed.

Egwene joins them and shows them that they're within sight of the White Tower. The caravan comes to a halt and they discover that the Whitecloaks have stopped them. Eamon Valda is asking them about the false Dragon. Valda then spots Perrin and Egwene and tells his men to bring them to him. Ila and the rest of the TuathaAn stop them by linking arms together.

Loial then talks about how excitable humans are and how several of them chased him across town. He mentioned that he left a stedding and then Rand realizes that Loial is an Ogier. They then introduce themselves to each other. Loial remarks that it's exciting to meet an Aiel, but Rand denies that he is one. Rand then picks up a book named "The Travels of Jain Farstrider" and talks about how Egwene used to read it every day. He then hears bells outside. Loial explains that the Aes Sedai are parading Logain through the streets. Rand sees Mat walking on the street below and excuses himself to go catch up with Mat.

Alanna and Liandrin are sitting on seats on the wagon behind the cage. People are throwing food at Logain, who is slumped in his cage. Mat sees Logain looking up at him and laughing maniacally.

Stepin is being helped into his ceremonial outfit for Kerene's ring by Ihvon and Maksim when Lan walks into the room. Stepin tells the story of how he became Kerene's warder. He kept picking fights, until he met Kerene, who laughed at him and then bought him a drink. They became friends, and when it was time for her to choose a Warder, she chose him. Maksim tells him that his dad tried to kill him when he was twelve and that the White Tower gave him the first real family he ever had. Lan mentions that Alanna is willing to bond him, but Stepin replies that Lan should wait until something similar happens to him before giving advice.[9] The three escort Stepin outside the room and through the Warders' hall, where other Warder are lining the way.

Scene 17 - Purification#

Inside a Whitecloak tent, several Whitecloaks are scrubbing Egwene. They undo her braid and comb it straight. They take off her regular clothes and put on a white robe. Eamon Valda is approaching the tent. They trim and clean her fingernails. On Valda's command, they put her in a chair and bind her hands, all the while Valda is eating a meal. They next bring Perrin in. His hands are bound and he is gagged. They then bind him to some device. Valda admits that Egwene is not who he thought she was, as she hasn't channeled already. Valda tells her that another Aes Sedai mentioned that the channelling hand gestures were just a crutch. Egwene tells him that she cannot channel. Valda accepts that she's not Aes Sedai, but wonders why the Light brought them to him twice. He says that he knows that she can touch the One Power.[10] He threatens to kill her, but Egwene calls his bluff. He says that she would have made a strong Aes Sedai.[10] He points out his collection of Aes Sedai rings. He cleans a knife with wine and starts slicing Perrin's back. Wolves howl in the distance and Perrin's eyes turn golden. Valda is convinced that the One Power only comes from the Dark One, which is why his goal is to kill all the Aes Sedai. Valda gives Egwene a choice: if she channels, he will kill her and let Perrin go, or don't channel and Perrin dies and she is let go. Valda leaves to let them talk.

Scene 18 - The Pain Will Never Go Away#

There's a knock on Nynaeve's door. It's Stepin, with a half bottle of wine, asking if she has anymore of the sleeping tea. He tells her that the pain is the only thing he has left of Kerene, so he's not ready to let go of it yet. Nynaeve promises him that the pain will never go away, gives him the tea packet, and he leaves.

Scene 19 - Persimmons#

Nynaeve ventures outside her room and ends up in the Warder' Hall. Liandrin finds her there. They talk about the Red Ajah not having Warder, usually.

Scene 20 - A Distinct Rite of Passage#

Loial knocks on Rand's door and then enters. He asks Rand whether he knew that Ogier had access to the White Tower grounds. He say he went there and found his friend. Nynaeve comes barging into the room. They hug and Loial continues, explaining that the braid was how he knew to identify her. Rand tells Nynaeve that he thinks Perrin and Egwene are on their way. She tries to help Mat, but he yells at her not to touch him.

Scene 21 - Breakbone Fever#

Rand and Nynaeve are in the hallway outside the room. Rand tells her that he thinks Mat can channel. He doesn't trust Moiraine. Nynaeve says that they don't need the Aes Sedai, that they can deal with it together once Perrin and Egwene arrive. Rand mentions that he hasn't seen Egwene in a month. Nynaeve reassures him that she's alive and then tells the story of Egwene having breakbone fever as a child. It causes muscles to cramp and can be fatal and usually just before death the victim's arms and legs snap in half. Egwene's parents brought her to the old Wisdom for treatment, but the Wisdom didn't know what to do. That night Egwene fought the fever and in the morning, the fever had broken.[12] Nynaeve calls Egwene unbreakable.

Scene 22 - This Is What I Deserve#

In the Whitecloak tent, Egwene is straining to channel, but can't. Perrin tells Egwene what really happened to Laila in order to explain why, of the two of them, he deserves to die. Valda enters and asks if they've made a choice. Neither of them say anything, so Valda starts slicing Perrin again. Wolves start howling in the distance. Egwene calms herself and tries to channel. Valda stops slicing Perrin and watches Egwene. She manages to channel a small fireball at Valda and also starts burning the ropes that bind Perrin's hands. Perrin breaks free and starts heading towards Valda, his eyes golden. Egwene comes up behind Valda and stabs him in the shoulder and he falls to the floor.[13] Men start yelling and wolves start snarling outside the tent. Egwene grabs Valda's set of Aes Sedai rings and they both leave the tent. Outside the tent, wolves are attacking the Whitecloaks. They are almost away when another wolf stops in front of them. Perrin tells Egwene not to worry because the wolf won't hurt them.

Alanna tells Moiraine that the Amyrlin is returning from Caemlyn and has summoned the two of them to the Hall to answer for Logain. Siuan Sanche is looking for someone to blame. Alanna talks about Moiraine being one of the few Aes Sedai who is strong enough to challenge the Amyrlin, but Moiraine does not want to be the Amyrlin. Liandrin is gaining influence in the White Tower. After Alanna leaves, Moiraine goes to a wall plaque, opens its door and looks at the illustration inside.

Scene 26 - Tea#

Stepin is pouring Lan a cup of tea. Stepin and Lan are discussing whether or not Stepin will accept Alanna's offer of bonding. They move on to talking about Nynaeve. Lan wakes up in the morning with the tea cup still in his hand, empty. Stepin is not in the room. Lan sees the empty envelope that Nynaeve gave Stepin and then sees that a dagger is missing from a display. He races out of the room to find Stepin. He finds Stepin in a hallway, dead from a self-inflicted stab wound using the missing dagger.[15]

Scene 27 - Relieve Us Of Our Grief#

Warder are gathered in a room, all dressed in white. Alanna, Moiraine and Nynaeve are also there, dressed in white. Stepin's body, in white, is on a table. One Warder is chanting. The lead Warder calls on Lan to lay his hand on Stepin's body and to relieve all the Warder of their grief.[16] Lan kneels down and places his left hand on Stepin's body. The Warder start to pound their right hands on their chests. Lan looks at Moiraine and then starts to pound his chest with his right hand. Lan, and Lan alone, starts yelling in grief. Nynaeve looks uncomfortable and at the point of tears.
