The Wheel of Time Episode 7 Recap

Warning: Episode 7 Spoilers Below! Proceed with caution!

Having left the power seat of the Aes Sedai behind, the Two Rivers villagers are once again traveling with Moiraine. Everyone is tense due to Mat's desertion. Is the dagger still influencing him, or is there another explanation for his actions? The uncertainty takes a toll on everyone, and their relationships suffer because of that.

When a Trolloc attacks the party, Egwene manages to save the day. However, her use of the One Power attracts Black Wind, which awakens everyone's worst fears about the future and their relationships with each other. Nynaeve manages to repel that, but not to boost anyone's morale, after the traumatic experience. To make matters worse, Moiraine reveals that anyone who isn't the Dragon is going to die when they reach the Eye of the World.

The villagers argue about the best course of action. Their fighting brings quite some drama to light. Perrin is revealed to have been in love with Egwene for quite some time. Rand can hardly overcome what he deems as Egwene's abandonment, while Nynaeve can no longer hide her feelings for Lan. On a whim, she finds him, and they spend the night together. Rand and Egwene reconcile, with the former declaring that he'll be her Warder once she becomes an Aes Sedai.

Their happiness is short-lived, however. Rand can't forget the Black Wind's taunting that he's the Dragon. Min Farshaw, a sheer, confirms his suspicions, revealing that he's the child of a Maiden of the Spear, who died shortly after giving birth to him. From there on, Tam, who is likely not his biological father, found him and raised him in the Two Rivers. With this terrible knowledge, Rand sets out with Moiraine, leaving the others behind.
