! Scene 3 - Blood Snow

On the slopes of [Dragonmount], [Tigraine|Tigraine (TV)], pregnant and in labor, defeats six [Illian|Illian (Country)] Companions[1] in battle, but not before being stabbed in the side. She grabs a cape and makes her way over to a boulder, puts the cape down, and prepares to give birth. As she is doing so, a seventh Companion[2], standing in front of her, points his heron-marked sword at her.

! Scene 5 - The Ways

The [Two Rivers] folk want [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] to re-open the [Waygate|Ways] so that [Mat|Mat (TV)] can get in, but she doesn't, saying that he made his choice. She remarks that they must continue on, and she and [Lan|Lan (TV)] start walking. [Loial|Loial (TV)] warns the [Two Rivers] folk against using the [One Power] because it will attract [Machin Shin] and then he leaves to catch up with [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] and [Lan|Lan (TV)]. The [Two Rivers] folk agree to find [Mat|Mat (TV)] when this is all over, and then they too continue onward.

[Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] and [Lan|Lan (TV)] discuss the consequences of the Dragon Reborn being [Mat|Mat (TV)] and [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] says she would not allow him to get close to the [Dark One|ShaiTan].

As they walk along, [Loial|Loial (TV)] talks about the history of the [Ways] and how fruit trees once thrived on each of the "islands" and that the paths connecting the islands were once soft and verdant and covered in grass, but now, if someone were to fall off, they would fall forever.

[Perrin|Perrin (TV)] tells everyone that he can see something ahead[3], but none of the others can see what he's talking about. They soon reach a guiding stone, but it has been marred as if someone or something tried to destroy it. [Loial|Loial (TV)] says he should be able to read it, but will need some time, so [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] says they should all get rest while they can. [Lan|Lan (TV)] tells [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] that something is following them. The [Two Rivers] folk eventually fall asleep.

! Scene 6 - Machin Shin

All are asleep, except for [Lan|Lan (TV)]. [Egwene|Egwene (TV)] is awakened by a whistling sound. She wakes up [Rand|Rand (TV)] and then they both stand up. A flash of lightning shows a [Trolloc] jumping onto the island. With a instinctive [channeling|One Power] of the [One Power], the [Trolloc] is sent back over the edge to plummet forever. [Egwene|Egwene (TV)] apologizes for [channeling|One Power][4]. [Loial|Loial (TV)] says that a [Trolloc] in the [Ways] is impossible and [Lan|Lan (TV)] says now they know how the [Trollocs] got to the [Two Rivers]. [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] adds that now they know what happened to the guiding stone. [Perrin|Perrin (TV)] notices that it just got a lot colder. [Loial|Loial (TV)] says that [Machin Shin] translates to "Black Wind" and [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] tells everyone not to listen to what [Machin Shin] will say to them. [Lan|Lan (TV)] says that they won't make it to their intended [Waygate|Ways] and asks [Loial|Loial (TV)] how far it is to the [Fal Dara] one. [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] tells [Loial|Loial (TV)] to take them there. More lightning flashes.[5] They make it to the island with the [Fal Dara] [Waygate|Ways] when [Machin Shin] attacks. It tells the characters the following:[6]
* [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)]: You're wrong about everything. You'll murder these children and call it heroism.
* [Egwene|Egwene (TV)]: You're an imposter, a fraud.
* [Rand|Rand (TV)]: [Egwene|Egwene (TV)] will never love you as much a you love her. She left you once and she'll do it again.[7]
* [Perrin|Perrin (TV)]: You wanted [Laila|Laila (TV)] dead, out of the way. You killed her because you loved another woman more than your wife.
* [Lan|Lan (TV)]: You can't protect her. You'll watch her die.
* [Nynaeve|Nynaeve (TV)]: You'll hear their screams as they die, just like you heard your parents, and you'll do nothing to save them. You lost [Mat|Mat (TV)] and you'll lose the others one by one, until you have no one.

[Nynaeve|Nynaeve (TV)] then [channels|One Power] a sphere that protects everyone from [Machin Shin]. This give [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] a chance to [channel|One Power] to open the [Waygate|Ways]. Everyone gets out, with [Lan|Lan (TV)] grabbing [Nynaeve|Nynaeve (TV)] and getting her out. The [Waygate|Ways] closes behind them. [Loial|Loial (TV)] tells them that they are at [Fal Dara]. [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] says that the [Eye of the World] is a day's walk beyond the city.

They walk to the throne room. Lord [Agelmar|Agelmar (TV)] greets [Lan|Lan (TV)] and then asks [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] what she's doing here. She starts to explain, but Lord [Agelmar|Agelmar (TV)] cuts her off, guessing that she's here because his sister, who is in the room, wrote to the [White Tower] about the encroaching [Blight] and [Trolloc] raids. He says that as always, [Fal Dara] will be able to protect their own. [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] responds that they're not here to advise him on how to protect the [Gap|Tarwins Gap], but rather to warn him that the [Dark One|ShaiTan] is using the [Ways] to move his armies and to suggest that he get some men to wall up the [Fal Dara] [Waygate|Ways], which he agrees to.

Lady [Amalisa|Amalisa Jagad (TV)] asks [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] if she would answer why she was in the [Ways].
