! __Elayne__ POV

[Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is at the play but she focuses on the [foxhead medallion|Foxhead Medallion] and the copy she made. It fails to work with more powerful weaves, plus she cannot channel when holding it. She can channel when holding the original. She worries about the %%ot [gholam|Gholam]%%. The play comes to an end with [Walishen]'s death. In addition to several of the [Kin], [Dyelin|Dyelin Taravin], [Conail Northan], [Catalyn Haevin] and [Sylvase Caeren] are there along with [Ellorien|Ellorien Traemane]. [Sylvase|Sylvase Caeren] is annoyed that [Ellorien|Ellorien Traemane] is there. Her secretary has been questioning the prisoners but with no information so far. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] recalls that [Ispan|Ispan Shefar] seemed to be under some sort of [Compulsion|Weaves#co].[1] [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] suddenly has an idea how to get around that problem. [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] will not like it but she is not there. She speaks briefly with [Ellorien|Ellorien Traemane] as she leaves, hoping that she will recall [Gaebril|Rahvin]'s true identity and the years of mutual respect she and [Morgase|Morgase Trakand] had before. [Kaila Bent] tells her that [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] is with [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]. In her rooms, she dons a black cloak and weaves [Fire|One Power] and [Air|One Power] for the [Mirror of Mists|Weaves#mi] to disguise herself as something creepy. She feels safe visiting the [Black Ajah] alone because of [Min|Min Farshaw]'s [viewing|viewings]. She [Travels|Weaves#t] to %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%%'s cell in the dungeons and pretends to be a [Forsaken]. %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%% is taken in and tells her one of the two they seek, [Mat|Matrim Cauthon], is in [Caemlyn] and they are planning an assassination. They are almost in position for the invasion of [Andor].[2] 

[Elayne|Elayne Trakand] no longer feels the [Kin] holding %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%%'s shield. The cell door opens and it is the secretary,[3] %%gray [Temaile|Temaile Kinderode]%% and %%brown [Eldrith|Eldrith Jhondar]%%. %%brown [Eldrith|Eldrith Jhondar]%% sees through the sham. [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] manages to shield %%brown [Eldrith|Eldrith Jhondar]%% and %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%% but the secretary attacks her breaking her shoulder. She knocks him away with [Air|One Power] but he gets the [foxhead medallion|Foxhead Medallion] from her. She and %%gray [Temaile|Temaile Kinderode]%% fight but [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is stronger, knocking her out with [Air|One Power] and shielding her. The secretary runs but [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] throws %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%% at him and he drops the [foxhead medallion|Foxhead Medallion]. She retrieves it, but [Doilin Mellar|Daved Hanlon] stabs her from behind and takes it. %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%% shields her. He orders %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]%% to [Heal|Weaves#h] [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] so he can have her alive. After the [Healing|Weaves#h], [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] gets her to take the second [foxhead medallion|Foxhead Medallion]. %%yellow [Chesmal|Chesmal Emry]'s%% shield on her fails and [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] hits her with [Fire|One Power]. [Mellar|Daved Hanlon] has both medallions. She holds %%brown [Eldrith|Eldrith Jhondar]%% between him and her but he simply slits %%brown [Eldrith|Eldrith Jhondar]'s%% throat. He kills %%gray [Temaile|Temaile Kinderode]%% as well saying it was his orders.[4] Using all the [One Power] she can muster, she pulls the ceiling down on top of him. He ducks away and runs dropping one medallion. It is the original. [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] arrive and report that the guards and [Kin] outside are dead.[5] They take [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] to [Melfane|Melfane Dawlish].

[Egwene|Egwene alVere] releases [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] from his bond of [Air|One Power] then leaves him for an hour. When she returns, she is furious that he revealed her traps and spooked [Mesaana]. She admits it might have been a [Gray Man] or a [Darkfriend|Darkfriends] but she still would have captured them.[6] She told him she had taken precautions and he still disobeyed. [Silviana|Silviana Brehon] glares at him as he leaves. [Chubain|Jimar Chubain] inspects the knife that was thrown at [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand]. The blade has three bits of blood-colored rock embedded. They will check to see if [Bryne|Gareth Bryne] has even seen the like. [Gawyn|Gawyn Trakand] tells him that he will send him the [Younglings] who want to be soldiers.
