  • Nynaeve is still on a ridge overlooking the Aes Sedai camp, eating her lunch. Liandrin comes over, mispronounces her name, and says it's because she can't identify her accent, but that's because she's never heard Nynaeve speak. Nynaeve guesses that Liandrin is there to ask her questions, so she says that first she'll ask Liandrin questions and then maybe answer Liandrin's questions. Her first question is "How long have you known Moiraine." Liandrin smiles. (Episode 104)

Maksim says that they do not. Stepin explains that the bond between warder and Aes Sedai is stronger than any other bond. He explains that in the Old Tongue, "Aes Sedai" means "Servants of All", which means they serve the world. Nynaeve then asks what does that make the Warder. Lan replies "Proud." (Episode 104)
