Perrin is awoken by Lan, who tells him that Rand has left the camp. We think this is really when Masema goes off the deep end, and so does Perrin. Rand has finally made his move, the one that Moiraine knew would come. Whether this is an action born of Rand's frustrations at inaction, the dreams he and anyone near him are having, or the Pattern itself pushing on him, no one seems to know. We think it's some combination of the three. Rand has proclaimed himself Dragon, but he has not proven it yet. There's one clear way to do that; take Callandor from the Stone of Tear, and so he's left to do so. Moiraine and Perrin have an important conversation about the world of dreams. Moiraine sends Min to Tar Valon before the party leaves to follow the Dragon. Min tells Perrin about some important viewing she had regarding him before the group splits up, we'll break it down for you.
