We are joined today by Jason Denzel of Dragonmount again, because we talked for so long that the chapter had to be split into two parts.
Illian gets a terrifying lightshow to accompany the thunder of an invading army pouring through giant gateways. The Saldaeans take the city without much fanfare, while Rand and Sammael get into a duel that wrecks the king’s and council’s palaces before taking their fight to Shadar Logoth instead. Trollocs and Myrddraal are sneaking about fearfully, Liah reappears briefly, and Rand falls through a floor. Before he can die an inglorious death in a lost basement, a mysterious wanderer (aka Moridin) arrives to save him, and they end up crossing balefire streams when Mashadar shows up. Rand makes a final attempt to kill Sammael but has to kill Liah instead, letting Mashadar take out Sammael in a way that we find generally unsatisfying. Rand returns to Illian and is presented with the Laurel Crown/Crown of Swords.
