Spoiler Filled Synopsis

While travelling through The Ways Lanfear throws Moiraine and Lan out a waygate before reaching Falme and uses other methods to transport herself and Rand into the city. 

Lanfear alerts Ishamael to Rand's presence, before he feels ready to enact his scheme to bring Rand to the dark. Realising she has betrayed him, Ishamael starts to put in motion plans to counter Lanfear and has Padan Fain deliver Mat the dagger from Shadar Logoth to kill Rand with, but Mat finds a creative solution to taking the blade and escapes his prison. 

Meanwhile Falme comes under attack from the Whitecloaks led by Dain Bornhald and his father Geofram in an attempt to eradicate the Seanchan. But encounter Perrin and the Aiel. As Geofram kills Perrin’s companion Hopper, Perrin quickly takes revenge killing the Whitecloaks leader in front of his son Dain. During the chaos, Ingtar, Loial and Masema escape with the Horn of Valere and join the battle alongside Mat, Perrin and the Aiel. 

Seeing Egwene captured by the Seanchan, Rand confronts and kills the Seanchan leaderTurak and his men. But after a bombardment of Falme’s Tower disrupts the Damane channellers and their Sul’dam, Egwene manages to break free from Renna killing her, as she realises that she can be collared as she is a low level channeler of the one power

Meanwhile, unable to reach Rand at the Tower with his way blocked by Seanchan, Mat is forced to blow the Horn, summoning the Heroes of the Horn to his side and turning the tide of battle. 

Rand, Egwene, Nynaeve, Perrin and Mat reunite and are confronted by Ishamael who has Rand shielded from the One Power and tricks Mat into wounding Rand with the dagger. While Egwene and Perrin protect Rand and Mat from Ishamael, Elayne and Nyneave arrive and Elayne begins to heal Rand’s wound. 

On the beach Moiraine realises Lanfear had placed her and Lan in the location to free Rand from the shielding, allowing him to channel the one power and slay Ishamael with his Heron sword. As was prophesied, Rand is proclaimed the Dragon Reborn before the whole city with a fiery dragon bannered across the sky as his friends stand by his side. 

After the battle, Lanfear is confronted by Moghedien, another of the Forsaken, and learns all Forsaken have been set free and have set their sights on the Dragon Reborn.
