The Wheel of Time - The Dark Along the Ways

Setting up the season finale, our cast of would-be Dragons, with the exception of Mat (Barney Harris), follow the exiled Moiraine Damodred (Rosamund Pike) through a waygate to the fortress city of Fal Dara in "The Dark Along the Ways." There the group will earn a short respite while one of the group will admit a truth to themselves with the help of the town's seer (Kae Alexander), and the events for the finale will be set in motion.

The Ways, the reality between realities where one can quickly circumvent the world, is interesting although the characters don't spend all that much time in the unsual locale before the end up running for their lives and emerging at their destination. The episode introduces the Blight which will play a role in the following episode as well as several locales including Nynaeve (ZoĆ« Robins) to the friends of Lan Mandragoran (Daniel Henney) offering her more insight into the man. As for the reveal of the true Dragon, the show goes with the most obvious choice in confirming it is indeed Rand al'Thor (Josha Stradowski) whose destiny is at hand.
