Right? Us wolves have pretty high standards, we don't just lick ANYONE'S calves :mother

Wolves know what's good for them it seems

Yeah! We got that healing spit! Can't just go sharing that with everyone. Then EVERYONE will be coming to us asking us to lick them, and then that just creates all kinds of unnecessary situations and comments!

I loved the last episode for all the reasons above. I teared up when Nynaeve did her healing.

Looking forward to tonight!!

Am I the only one who lowkey sometimes forgets that you can watch it earlier than expected? I keep thinking I can't watch it until Friday evening, and then at some point, today and even last Thursday, I was like "OHMYGOD IT'S TODAY THOUGH!"

It’s on at 02:00 AM Friday here, so about 09:00 AM in the states?
It’s 00:00 in London, so…

Nope! It's midnight for me so it's technically Friday but I don't count the day as changing until I've been to bed, so it's still Thursday.... and I totally forgot that means it's on in a few hours :laugh:

This is exactly how I consider it. But I may have to wait until tomorrow morning this time to watch it rather than stay up till midnight cause I have a headache. But I really really want to stay up :laugh:

I just rewatched this episode. While Mat’a dagger is clean, you do see blood on the fades sword in brief flashes when he fights Thom.

I just rewatched this episode, and the only thing that really irks me relates to the Power. Early in the episode Kerene says that only a few of Aes Sedai are strong enough to hold Logain and even then they have to do it in pairs. I thought the first time (and again now): why don't you just use more Aes Sedai and link? Or is there something in the books about how they don't link to hold a false dragon, only to gentle him? Also, Logain is supposed to be /strong/, nearly as strong as Rand. In the books Rand is able to make Egwene and Elayne, who are two of the strongest women in existence, feel like kittens held by a mastiff. Why would they only use two Aes Sedai to watch Logain?

I think tradition holds that 13 are needed to hold the shield no matter how strong the man is....?

From our library:
Shielding said:
“Thirteen women who can barely channel could overpower most men, linked. The thirteen weakest women in the Tower could overpower you or any man and barely breathe hard” (Asmodean to Rand, The Fires of Heaven, Chapter 3).

Though six can hold a shield, six are unlikely to have been enough to capture either of those [Rand or Logain], as Guaire Amalasan and Yurian Stonebow were both able to overcome six Aes Sedai when they tried to capture them (LoC, Ch. 54).

Summarized quote: Rand was unable to break out of a shield actively held by six sisters at Dumai's Wells. However, he was able to break through tied-off "knots" one by one, and when it was down to only three active "knots" he was able to push and shatter the shield

So it takes more than six to shield the most powerful male channelers, and thirteen is supposedly enough to prevent failure. But once the shield is in place, six active holders can maintain it.

However, I understand why they reduced it for the show. If you need six women shielding Logain at all times, that's more actors and costumes you have to come up with. I think there were only 8 Aes Sedai in the party sent to capture him.
