Warning: SPOILERS for The Wheel of Time season 2 episode 4.The Wheel of Time season 2 is halfway through its 8-episode run and, while adapting any of Robert Jordan’s lengthy tomes in just eight hours would be a difficult task, showrunner Rafe Justin’s and the rest of the creative team have done strong work in bringing the source material to life. The Wheel of Time season 2 adapts the second The Wheel of Time book, The Great Hunt, while also pulling from the series’ third entry. Episode 4 ended with multiple twists and revelations; the upcoming fifth episode is sure to build to the season’s highly anticipated crescendo.
One of the biggest moments in The Wheel of Time season 2 episode 4 was Liandrin’s betrayal of Egwene and her friends. Screen Rant is excited to preview a clip of the next episode, featuring the culmination of Liandrin’s plan. Check it out below:
Why The Seanchan Want Egwene, Nyneave & Elayne
The Wheel of Time season 2 introduced a formidable new enemy faction in the Seanchan; the powerful group arrives from overseas with many new customs, weapons, and techniques that put the series’ heroes—and villains—to the test. The most threating aspect of the Seanchan, however, is the fact that they collar and control all who display the ability to channel the One Power. As Nyneave, Elayne, and Egwene are three of the most powerful channelers in The Wheel of Time, they would be immensely appealing to the Seanchan.
Of course, the exchange between Liandrin and Suroth in the clip above points to another interested party. As Darkfriends, both Liandrin and Suroth serve the Dark One and, more specifically, the Forsaken Ishamael. The whole group that left the Two Rivers in the previous season is of supreme interest to Ishamael; the fact that some may end up in his hands suggests big developments to come for the rest of the season.
New episodes of The Wheel of Time season 2 are released on Fridays on Prime Video.
