! Chronology (Possible Spoilers)


! The Eye of the World

* [Rand|Rand (TV)] wakes from sleep and [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] asks him if he had a dream and he replies that the [Dark One|ShaiTan] knows where they are. Ishamael, with ember eyes and mouth, stabs [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] through the back of her head and she falls dead. He is dressed in a similar fashion as [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon (TV)] in the cold open. [Rand|Rand (TV)] shoots him in the eye. Ishamael pushes the arrow through his eye, which takes his face with it, revealing that he had a mask on and had a normal face beneath it. Ishamael says that [Rand|Rand (TV)] looks nothing like [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon (TV)], but he can still tell that [Rand|Rand (TV)] is him. Ishamael asks [Rand|Rand (TV)] what his plan is. He compares who [Rand|Rand (TV)] has with him now ([Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)]) versus what [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon (TV)] had with him then (99 companions). [Rand|Rand (TV)] draws his sword and Ishamael notices that it's a heron-marked blade. Ishamael asks where he got it from and [Rand|Rand (TV)] replies from his father. Ishamael is amused that [Rand|Rand (TV)] thinks that [Tam|Tam (TV)] is his father. ([Episode 108])
* At the [Eye|Eye of the World], [Rand|Rand (TV)] seems to be passed out and [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] is trying to revive him. Ishamael appears and [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] instantly [channels|One Power] to attack, but Ishamael stops the attack and then shields [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)]. ([Episode 108])
* [Rand|Rand (TV)] accepts that it's really [Egwene|Egwene (TV)], but the whole scene freezes moments later and Ishamael approaches them. He tells [Rand|Rand (TV)] that he can remake the world in his image and that he can show [Rand|Rand (TV)] how. The scene switches back to the [Eye|Eye of the World]. Ishamael is wondering if [Rand|Rand (TV)] will pick the Light or Dark. [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] pulls a knife out and places it at [Rand|Rand (TV)]'s throat, warning that if [Rand|Rand (TV)] doesn't choose the Light, she will choose for him. ([Episode 108])
* Ishamael shows [Rand|Rand (TV)] that the world is not so stable by causing a slash to appear in [Egwene|Egwene (TV)]'s neck. He repairs it after [Rand|Rand (TV)] demands him to. [Rand|Rand (TV)] then asks Ishamael how he can make it real. ([Episode 108])
* Ishamael is giving instructions to [Rand|Rand (TV)], telling him to empty himself of all feelings and turn them into want. To want everything so much that it turns into reality. [Rand|Rand (TV)] starts [channeling|One Power]. The scene changes back to the [Eye|Eye of the World]. Ishamael informs [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)] that [Rand|Rand (TV)] is now [channeling|One Power]. ([Episode 108])
* [Rand|Rand (TV)] is drawing in more [One Power] with Ishamael urging him on.
* [Rand|Rand (TV)] is now [channeling|one Power] into [Moiraine|Moiraine (TV)]'s [sa'angreal|Angreal]. Ishamael tells him to stop, to make the world how he wants. [Rand|Rand (TV)] asks about what [Egwene|Egwene (TV)] wants and then releases the [Power|One Power] in the [sa'angreal|Angreal] into Ishamael, seemingly destroying him and cracking the symbol on the floor.
