The teaser opens with a shot of a script page and although most of the lines are blurred, viewers can read, “And inside, he sees something protected from the ravages of time - a ruby-encrusted dagger." We then see a dark hallway inside a mysterious stone structure. There is also a window which reveals that the place is in ruins.
The next shot features a golden box being opened by a man’s hands. As he removes the dagger, someone says “Alright, let’s make a deal.”
We're not sure exactly what is happening in the teaser but it could reveal how Mat came across the cursed ruby-encrusted dagger in Shadar Logoth. In The Eye of the World, Mat steals the dagger after he, Rand al'Thor, and Perrin Aybara ended up in the city to avoid trouble. Unfortunately, Mat still left the city with a curse.
The Wheel of Time will star Rosamund Pike as Moiraine, Barney Harris as Mat, Josha Stradowski as Rand, and Marcus Rutherford as Perrin. The series has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
