The final episode of fantasy show ‘Wheel of Time Season 1’ has just been premiered on Amazon Prime Video and it ended on a big cliffhanger as a lot of questions remained unanswered. Also we have seen many big turn of events as Rand al’Thor (The Dragon) finally fought ‘The Dark One’ but whether he actually managed to defeat him or not it remains quite unclear in the episode 8.
Furthermore Nynaeve al’Meara escaped a near death thanks to Egwene el’Vere but did she actually got completely healed and whether Nynaeve still has her powers after using them in the war against the force of the Dark One, well even that question has not been answered as of now.
Below we are discussing further about the 5 major takeaways from the episode 8 of Wheel of Time so keep in mind that these includes some major spoilers :
Moiraine lost her powers – Well it appears that during the fight between The Dark One and Rand al’Thor, Aers Sidai Moiraine Sidai has lost her powers and she was seen telling that to her former bodyguard Lan Mandragoran at the end of episode 8. So we can expect a powerless Moiraine Sidai in the Season 2 of Wheel of Time.
Mat joined the Dark side – Mat Cuthon seemed to have joined the Dark side as he was seen going back to the Shadow Place and it appears that he has surrendered in front of the Dark One. Also as we already know that Barney Harris won’t be playing the role of Mat in Season 2 so we might see a big change in the cast.
All 5 are equal – Although Rand al’Thor is the dragon but still all 5 including – Mat, Egwene, Nynaeve and Perrin are equal in this crusade and Padan Fain who is the follower of the Dark One was seen confirming it to Perrin in episode 8 of Wheel of Time Season 1.
Rand did not defeated the dark one – Well it appears that Rand al’Thor has not defeated the Dark One in the last episode of Season 1 of Wheel of Time. Rand went alone as he doesn’t want to put his loved one Egwene, Nynaeve, Perrin and Mat in danger and this iss the biggest disadvantage of being a dragon.
Its just the beginning – Although many questions remained unanswered at the end of Season 1 of Wheel of Time but one thing is clear and it is that this is just the beginning of the show and we might seen Season 2 by mid or late 2022.
