Visions and Prophecies
- Perrin's Dreams
- Mat stood there. He was fighting against himself, a dozen different men wearing his face, all dressed in different types of fine clothing. Mat spun his spear, and never saw the shadowy figure creeping behind him, bearing a bloody knife.
- He saw sheep, suddenly, running in a flock toward the woods. Wolves chased them, and a terrible beast waited in the woods, unseen. He was there, in that dream, he sensed. But who was he chasing, and why? Something looked wrong with those wolves.
- Faile, Grady, Elyas, Gaul ... all walked toward a cliff, followed by thousands of others.
- The Whitecloaks
Galad learns Perrin is nearby. A meeting seems imminent.
