    I just realized that there is not a single thread on the mysterious Moiraine Damodred, and i think it is a topic well worth discussing.

    So what theories have people been throwing around ? Is she dead ? Has she just been stilled and is currently trapped in Finnland ? Will she return ? Will she marry Thom ?

    I know this topic has been debated ceaselessly and will hopefully be resolved in Knife Of Dreams, but it is still interesting to hear what people think.

    I believe Moiraine will be back, and the best evidence that concludes this is one of Min's viewings claimed Rand would not succeed without a "women long gone" or somesuch.

    And we know from an interview with Jordan that her viewings are never wrong.

    Interesting, no ?

    Here's my take on it:

    I believe that Moiraine was neither stilled nor killed when she entered finnland. I think she was held up by the finns though. But I think that her stay there would be considerably shorter than in the real world just because time moves differently there. Ofcourse it could have been also a lot longer.

    She will be back for sure.

    I am surprised to hear myself say this, but I hope she makes a return.

    I agree with Turin. I have missed her over the past few books. Plus, all the hints about her and Thom hooking up probably have some truth to them. Anyways, if she does return, it will be dramatic and at a crucial time.

    Does anyone think she will be rescued through the Tower Of Ghenji ? Using the ol' Fire to blind, iron to bind, etc poem ?

    Good idea! :duh:
    I was trying to think of how it fit in with Mat and Perrin's stories and problems and did not think to connect it Moiraine. I do think she will come back, and that might be a great way!

    wow, i've never heard birgitte included in it before...but that would mean they'd have to go to andor to pick her up...?

    good idea though, i never thought of that.

    They could use an Aes Sedai to open a gateway, it wouldn't take long to track down Bigitte and bring her back to the Tower Of Ghenji. Which is located near Andor anyway, its near the Two Rivers.

    remember when perrin is chasing slayer through t'a'r? slayer enters a tower and birgitte and hopper urge perrin not to follow. that tower is the, dun dun dun, ToG. it's speculated to be the home of the finns and the place where moiraine is being kept.

    How are they gonna get in though ? The Tower of Ghenjei has no doors or windows ? And why is it more dangerous to enter in Tel'aran'rhiod than in the waking world ? Any theories ?
