Rand asks if anyone else new has come into town and she replies that no one has except the gleeman. At that time, the gleeman, Thom sings a song for the crowd while playing his guitar.

A group of people, with leashed hounds, appear before and behind them. They ask if Egwene or Perrin know the song. They are confused, so one of the group helps them answer correctly.

Egwene asks who they are, and they explain that they are the Tuatha'an.

Mat draws the ruby dagger and says that he could ask the same. Thom, passing Mat and heading to the man in the cage, says that he's here to bury that man. Thom identifies Mat as being from the Two Rivers and wonders how Mat could have seen Trollocs. Thom lowers the body and says he heard men in town bragging about killing an Aiel. Thom remarks that it's rare to see red heads outside of the Aiel Waste.[5] Thom talks about the Aiel and that they're only dangerous when they're veiled, which this one was not.

Thom and Mat start burying the Aiel man.

Rand says that his life used to be much clearer, but now he's confused as to what to do. Dana leans in for a kiss, but Rand leans back. She gets up and walks to the door, then shuts and locks it. She asks him "was it the hair?" and says it made her look too much like Egwene. Rand tries to get his sword, but Dana gets it first. She holds him at swords-length and says that she's waiting for Mat because she needs him also. Rand starts pounding on the door.

Scene 20 - Burial#

Thom and Mat have finished burying the body, with Thom saying "Rest, warrior of the Three-fold Land. May your soul find water and shade."

Scene 21 - An Ironwood Door#

Rand is still pounding on the door. Dana says that it's pointless because it's ironwood and that three men his size could not break it down. After slamming into the door six times, Rand slams into it hard enough to make the whole wall shake. The next time, he breaks the door down[6] and runs away. He sees Mat and they start running, with Dana in pursuit, holding Rand's sword. She finally corners them. She says that she sees "all five of you" in her dreams. She reveals that she's a Darkfriend and that she's proud that she's going to be the one that brings the Dragon Reborn to the Dark One. She says Darkfriends still remember the last person, Ishamael, that brought the Dragon to the Dark One 3,000 years ago. She further explains that the Dark One does not want to kill them, but wants them to join him in the breaking of the Wheel. She says that she's already called one of the Eyeless, and "you can't outrun a Fade." A thrown dagger from behind her pierces her throat and she falls dead. Thom appears from the shadows and gets his dagger. He tells them that he's headed east and they decide to join him.

As the procession approaches, the man in the cage stares defiantly at them.
