Wheel of Time Trailer

Thinky thoughts re the WoT trailer:
0:00 – I love that we get the opening lines…
0:17 – Who the heck is that supposed to be? Is this Lews Therin? Actually … might be Elyas?
0:38 – Ajahs wearing color-coordinated outfits confirmed … and I’m okay with that. (I also think this is set during New Spring and thus before EotW…)
0:43 – Flows of Air!
0:50 – Well, Nynaeve is there with the big braid and the Green sister with beads in her hair is probably the one who bonds Rand in Fires of Heaven, so the other guys are her Warders? This scene definitely didn’t happen in book 1 or 2, so …
0:55 – Tar Valon!
0:58 – Rand! And he’s actually a redhead! No gingercide!
1:00 – Mat and the Knife!
1:06 – Wolfbrother! (Still don’t like the casting of Perrin, but maybe the actor will change my mind.)
1:07 – Uh … what? That’s Rand & Egwene … naked together? (Don’t like her casting either, but to be fair, she’s one of my least favorite characters so…)
1:10 – Rand’s dad, Tam! Sweet casting there.
1:19 – This is weird … their colors are kind evocative of the Tinkers, but I’m guessing they’re Darkfriends? Or Dragonsworn?
1:20 -Thinking this is Logain escaping from the Aes Sedai … or trying to. He’s supposed to be Gentled and then later Healed by Nynaeve…
1:24 – Moiraine at the Tower … this clearly has to be during the New Spring time period ’cause I don’t think she was ever in the Tower during the main books…
1:27 – Interesting that they’re keeping the Trollocs out of focus…
1:36 – I think that’s a Waygate?
1:38 – Fadesign! I really like this look.
1:42 – More One Power action. Sweet. And I actually kind of like how Lan is basically circling around Moiraine and protecting her while she weaves.
Things that I just realized:
  1. No sign of Thom. Where is he at?
  2. Kept Loial hidden, so we didn’t see him either.
  3. A guy on reddit theorized that they’re going to hide the fact that Logain is a False Dragon until late in the season when Rand reveals himself … which could actually work if Logain hadn’t already been captured and Mazrim Taim was claiming to be the Dragon. Hope they don’t combine those two into one character…
  4. I’m hoping they’re hiding that Moiraine isn’t the Main Character for the normies out there since the MCs should be the ta’averen and the super girls…
But ultimately, I’m just in the please don’t suck! mode…
