Rand and Min arrive in Camelyn seeking Mat and Nyneave, the latter of whom is seeking escape from the various groups of channelers that have a claim on her time. We talk about Nyneave’s changing relationship to power, Min’s lifestyle choices, and Rand’s failure upward into god-status.

Elayne wakes up to Nyneave healing her the traditional way; with bed rest and scolding. After butting heads for a while, they enter the World of Dreams to meet with Egwene, and we get lots of juicy plot points AND dress descriptions. Who is the person that closes the door with a click??? Then we get two Darkfriend POVs! Aradia discovers they have a grudging respect for Mili Skane, while Seth exposes Mellar as both a Mat-parallel an...

Elayne is settling into the business of running her nation, including the economic side of things. Do you know what “alum” is? We didn’t, and you can learn along with us about how critical this definitely-not-aluminum material is! After a morning of meetings, lunch and tea are served and then promptly interrupted by Dyelin with news from Braem Wood. Aradia is of the opinion that there are far too many random armies in Randland fore...

We really settle into Elayne’s succession plot in detail in our last double-header episode for the time being. The streets of Caemlyn are not sure about the Daughter-Heir’s claim, and her enemies are not intimidated by her apparent military strength. An attack on Aringill brings her back into the palace, where tangled plots by Sea Folk and Kin (and Aes Sedai) pull her in every direction at once. Mistress Harfor offers firm advice, ...

Our third and final double-header installment of the Perrin/Faile plotline for this book! Perrin wakes up from nearly being frozen and is promptly saddled with news and a corrosive rumor, all thanks to Berelain. Then he collects the grudging allegiance of Cha’Faile, gets a vague sense of the Aiel he is following, and watches as Maseama demonstrates how incredibly untrustworthy he is at every level.

In a second double-chapter serving of WOTS, Faile flails through freezing fantasies of foiled fortunes. Along with her two queenly companions, she meets Therava, Galina, and Sevanna, becoming enmeshed in three separate but related plots that ultimately go… somewhere? Neither Seth nor Aradia approve of how nudity, or the danger of frostbite, is used here.

The Podcast of Spoilers records, and episodes come and pass, leaving memories that become memes… that’s right, it’s chapter 1 of a new book! We begin the so-called “plotline of doom” with Perrin greeting every member of his party in a cinematic montage of walking and discussing the obvious dangers posed by traveling with Maseama. The next chapter shows a moment of profound tension in his army, but even while he is internally coming...

We open today’s episode with a somber nod to the reality of Roe v Wade being overturned. After a number of tangents that merit being put at the end of the episode, we return to Elayne as she descends to the palace basement to undergo the First Sister ceremony. We both think the ceremony is cool, if a bit weird in spots. Toveine Gazal has her last bitter moment in the POV spotlight as the Black Tower grows and descends towards shado...

Welcome to season nine of WoTSpoilers! We will be breaking the prologue into parts, because it is one of the longest in the series. On summer solstice we start Winter’s Heart, returning to just a few days before the end of Path of Daggers. First we check in with some Aes Sedai name-salad in the basement of the Tower, then shift to see how the Andoran nobility name-salad is responding to Elayne’s bid for the Lion Throne.

For our traditional book-wrap-up episode we have Morgan @PodcastOfTheDragon and EgweneFanboy aka Chad to talk with us about all that has happened, in the books and in our lives, during the period of time in which we were podcasting through Path of Daggers. Our timeline starts in October with SpoilerCon, spans the TV show and subsequent burnout, our return to finding joy in a fictional fog of war, and ranges over a variety of pe...

Today we are finishing the last chapter(s) of Path of Daggers! Multiple POV switches have us set up for plotlines that take a full three books to resolve, from Perrin meeting the Prophet, to Egwene taking a single significant step through a gateway, to Faile meeting Rolan. We also consider how our choice of role models in the books have changed as we’ve grown older. New Patreons get their shoutouts.

Sometimes, in the fog of war, things move very very quickly. Explosively quickly. Min and Rand are struggling to manage expectations around Elayne and the captive Aes Sedai. Verin’s knowledge and manipulation from the beginning of the book is paying off, much as Rand’s plans with the Black Tower (or lack thereof) are reaping him the grim harvest of both betrayal and sealing Fedwin Morr’s fate.

We are joined today by a long-term fan of the podcast, Margeau Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah, to discuss a very dark chapter. Elayne is nearly home to Camlyn and the start of her ascension plot when a murder in the group proves there is a Darkfriend among them, while inside the city Daved Hanlon meets Lady Shianine giving Bors his final sendoff.

Today’s chapter feels like a drawn out epilogue to events a book or more in the making. Rand learns of the details of his Bargain with the Seafolk, the consequences of avoiding the Maidens for so long, and a footnote from the user’s manual of Callandor. Aradia admires Min, and Cadsuane cowers for no one.

We wander through the corridors of the White Tower and get lost in a maze of quaternary characters and their intersecting plots. Seaine and Saerin are in the same room, and this will probably be the last time we are able to keep them distinct. Pevara is a super cool character despite being a Red, while Tovaine is pretty much the opposite as she approaches the Black Tower in her full Red Ajah arrogance. Logain reappears and gives us...
