Welcome to the Mostly Accurate (Okay, 12% accurate) WoT Show Meme Recap!
(Warning: Spoilers for Episodes 1-4)
Episode 4, titled “The Dragon Reborn,” starts us off in the not-too-distant-past with an exciting introduction to our favorite false Dragon, Logain. As he single handedly conquers Ghealdan, we are shown in a very creepy and cool way that the madness has him – or does it?
In the show’s present, he’s been captured and contained in an Aes Sedai camp Moiraine, Lan, and Nynaeve stumble upon. Here, Moiraine is healed, we learn more about the bond between Aes Sedai and Warders, and Nynaeve has a very “pleasant” run-in with everyone’s favorite Red, Liandrin.
Meanwhile, Mat is getting crankier and Rand continues to look like a certain Jedi.
Back at the camp, Moiraine checks in on Logain. He’s almost definitely going mad.
And we meet some really cool Warders.
The camp gives us a good introduction to Ajahs and how different each can be. We see the Reds with no Warders and Alannah being very snuggly with her two.
Elsewhere, Perrin struggles with the direction of his life so far.
Me too, Perrin. Me too.
Back at the Aes Sedai Camp, Logain’s army attacks. The Sisters and their Warders do what they can, but there are too many of them. So they fall back to the cave where Logain is kept. Unfortunately for them, Logain escapes in all the confusion and leaves nearly everyone guarding him, including Lan, near death.
Of course, this severely angers a certain Wisdom from the Two Rivers, and we get our first glimpse of exactly what an angry Nynaeve can accomplish.
With the exception of Rand, Mat, and Thom at the farm, a lot of this episode was completely new material not in the books, but man was it good. It pushed forward pretty much every character arc and showed us just how powerful Nyneave is in a short amount of time all while leaving me wanting more. Knowing that they are probably saving things like Caemlyn until Season 2, this was a great way to move the narrative forward toward the climax of Eye of the World, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
Now it’s time for your free meme template! This is actually a scene from Episode 3, but I love Dad-joke templates so much, I had to find room for it. Here’s my WoT dad joke.
Now let’s see what you’ve got! Until next week, remember: the Wheel memes as the Wheel wills.
