Nynaeve and Elayne have reached Falme, almost out of money and resorting to petty theft. On the plus side, they’ve located the damane housing. And inside, we get plenty more of how much things suck for Egwene, like getting horrible pain whenever she reaches for something she thinks of as a weapon. Min has met Domon and gotten him to agree to take them away, but then Renna finds out Egwene’s been channeling without permission and cuts down on her privileges, including renaming her Toby…er, Reek…Tuli, that’s it!
Despite the lack of plot developments to talk about, there’s some quite powerful stuff here. If anyone didn’t hate the Seanchan already, this chapter would probably seal the deal. And now I’m actually worried that with so little of the book left, Egwene might not get out of this by the end of it, and then who knows how much longer it will be? It’s always a sign of quality writing that you can care this much.
