During my rereading (currently on Path of daggers) I am imagining certain characters coming to life.
I hope they keep
Elaida, her storyline is unique
Danielle Mesana ...
Alverhin I can't spell her name
Galena
Sevanna..spikey salty
All the Aiel... more fight scenes
Salidar and WT envoys
This list is endless including seafolk, knitting circles
Olver

Now who to keep out as to many sub plots will detract in an adaption. I'm struggling with this one..

I think they will give all of Elaida and Galina's role to Liandrin.

I could see Galina and Alviarin merged with Liandrin, but Elaida gone? I feel like that would be too big of a removal.

Indeed, but remember what Alanna said to Moiraine in the show: Liandrin is gaining influence over Siuan Sanche, which was exactly what Elaida was doing in the books. :cheeseeni:

I don't think the story would work if there was no Elaida because she's pretty integral to a lot of events. I don't really want to see her become absorbed into Liandrin

I can see them combining Galina and Liandrin, but not with Elaida as well.

After all, Liandrin and Galina are both Red and Black, while Elaida is not. It is also possible that they combine Liandrin with Alviarin and make Liandrin Elaida's Keeper...

This is a good point and could also explain the line about her gaining more power.

There is a thread that discusses the Elaida/Liandrin subject, if you want to take the conversation there: https://www.tarvalon.net/index.php?...-fan-theory-book-verse-versus-tv-verse.49846/

With that said, I do wonder which of the main Aiel they will choose to show. Obviously Aviendha, possibly Rhuarc and Amys or another Wise One, it could be that
they would choose that only one Wise One would teach Egwene Tel'aran'rhiod, to save up on the cast :P
Couladin and Sevanna do sound like good suggestions if the show runner decides to
keep the Shaido plot , which might or might not include Faile's captivity... There is too much happening because of the Shaido hawever, so maybe they won't be cut, but who knows.

We haven't yet seen Sheriam, so hopefully her character will be introduced next season if this is when they will send Egwene and Nynaeve to the Tower :P Sheriam is important not only inside the Tower but also with the Salidar Aes Sedai.

There are a lot of Wise Ones they could merge together. Should as Bair and Melaine, etc.

If they do include the Shaido plot then I really hope it's at least reduced

Personally I think it makes sense to end the Shaido arc after
Dumai's Wells
and cut out the entirety of Faile's captivity. It goes on too long and doesn't move the plot enough.

I would be 100000000000000000000000000000% okay if they did that because that plot line is agonizing to read

It's even more agonizing to read because
it makes apparently ZERO IMPACT on Perrin. Before she gets taken, he's constantly complaining that he's a bad leader and no one should follow him. If the whole experience had made Perrin realize, oh hey, I can actually do this, let's all go and fight the Last Battle, it would have maybe felt like there was some more point to dragging it out for several books? BUT NO, Faile gets rescued and he takes it as EVEN MORE evidence that he's a bad leader and no one should follow him! INFURIATING.

That is SO TRUE Arinna. I think the only thing it really serves as the catalyst for is
the forging of Mah'allainir
, which is admittedly a big deal, but I feel like something else could just as easily trigger that anyway.
