At long last, we’re back with Perrin, as the group has gone through several more towns where Rand has had influence, some of it quite bad. They’re now at Remen, where Hunters Orban and Gann have fought a group of Aiel, and taken a prisoner who I’m betting is going to be joining Perrin when they leave. Everyone in town worships them, but Orban at least is actually a complete asshole who refuses to acknowledge servants and bosses around anyone he feels like. And Perrin spots a woman staring at him, who I’m guessing is Selene.
It seems this group will be stuck in Remen for a while, as a possible Town with a Dark Secret
. And the montage about the places Rand has been through is quite chilling, with him doing all this stuff like burning down a whole town possibly without even knowing it. Leaving this story for so long was an odd decision, but it’s immediately quite engaging on its own again.
