! __Mat__ POV

[Mat|Matrim Cauthon] steadies himself with his %%ot [ashandarei]%% as he hits the ground.[1] They are back outside the [Tower of Ghenjei]; he feared it might be [Rhuidean]. He does a victory dance then joins [Thom|Thom Merrilin] and %%blue [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]%%. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] was surprised to learn that [Noal|Noal Charin] was actually [Jain Farstrider|Jain Charin] but [Thom|Thom Merrilin] seemed to already know. They move near the [Arinelle River] where they use [Aludra]'s strikers to start a small fire. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells some of her story. The [Aelfinn|Finn] and [Eelfinn|Finn] feed on emotion like a drug. She can still channel but she is now very weak in the [One Power] from their draining. They told her they killed [Lanfear] that way.[2] A man came one time, but said she was not the one he wanted.[3] She still has the [ivory bracelet] %%ot [angreal|Angreal]%%, one of her three demands.[4] She offers to [Heal|Weaves#h] [Mat|Matrim Cauthon]'s pain but he refuses. He thinks talking with [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] feels as odd as talking with heroes like [Jain Farstrider|Jain Charin] and [Birgitte|Birgitte Trahelion] Silverbow. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] says she must find [Rand|Rand alThor] and asks after him. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] sees him eating with [Min|Min Farshaw].[1] [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] says that the taint is cleansed, per [Verin|Verin Mathwin]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] smiles, citing:

* By the Dragon came our pain, and by the Dragon was the wound repaired.[5]

He tells her that [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] is now queen. Everyone thought that [Rahvin] killed [Morgase|Morgase Trakand] but she is back now. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] replies that he already told her about [Rahvin].[6] [Thom|Thom Merrilin] tells her that [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] married the Empress of [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] repeats that she needs to find [Rand|Rand alThor] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] says he is going back to [Caemlyn]. Maybe [Elayne|Elayne Trakand] can help. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] is stunned when [Thom|Thom Merrilin] and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] express love for each other and agree to marry. He will also be her [Warder|Warder]. She hopes the right person has her previous [Warder|Warder] by now.[7] [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] hikes over to the river and makes a small cairn for [Noal|Noal Charin]. He worries about his ability to fight with only one eye. On a whim, he tosses his knife behind him and skewers a rabbit. Looking back at the river he finds a copper cook pot that someone lost. His luck is as good as ever. Smiling, he thinks they will have rabbit for supper and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] will have some tea.\\

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] Time runs differently in Finnland so we do not know if it has been minutes, hours or days. The image of [Rand|Rand alThor] with [Min|Min Farshaw] is too vague to help with the timing.
\\[#2] Interesting. [Lanfear] apparently died, as she got a new body, but [Cyndane] is only slightly weakened in the [One Power]. Did the [Aelfinn|Finn] and [Eelfinn|Finn] lie to [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] or was most of [Lanfear]'s strength restored when she became [Cyndane]? They lied. [Moridin] killed her. ([AMoL,Prologue])
\\[#3] So who was he, [Moridin] or someone else? He did not want [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]. Was he looking for [Lanfear]? In any case it seems most likely that he was responsible for destroying the other [twisted red doorway|Twisted Red Doorway]. ([ToM,Ch55])
\\[#4] Even more interesting. What were her other two demands? And what were [Lanfear]'s?
\\[#5] This sounds like the [Karaethon Cycle|Karaethon Prophecies].
\\[#6] Way back in [TFoH,Ch51].
\\[#7] Indeed. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara] are now married and bonded. ([ToM,Ch20])
