Chapter 16: In the Mirror of Darkness
I might as well confirm that since I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be obvious to the reader and you guessed it. Just so you aren't expecting it to be The Reveal and get annoyed that it's dragged out. Anyway, due to Rand being the reincarnation of the Dragon and Lanfear's previous relationship to Lews Therin, she's along to help him survive and push him toward his destiny (ruling beside her, of course). Note how she hinted that he should channel to kill the second, suspiciously-quickly-appearing grolm pack. So Rand has a Forsaken as a sort-of ally. Speaking of which, most of the Forsaken scheme against each other as much as the heroes. After all, they come from a technologically and magically advanced age, no one's a match for them here except each other, right?
It is a Reveal of sorts, but I don't think it was meant to be particularly unobvious. At the very least Rand remains unaware until he's told otherwise, if I remember correctly.
