    Which minor characters do you hope don't get cut? I'm using a pretty broad definition of minor characters because there are so many major characters!

    I really hope to see Sulin and some of the Asha'man (especially Narishma and Eben Hopwill.)

    Just thinking early books, I'm hoping Hurin doesn't get cut. His sniffing ability is a fun little bit of worldbuilding. It wouldn't surprise me if they cut him or combined him and Juilin Sandar though.

    Please don't cut out Narg or Uno :look

    I just wish Uno is not cut out, so that I can see Birgitte admiring his.... "handsomeness" :lol

    I'm worried about it, I remember the furor that followed cutting Tom Bombadil and Glorfindel!

    Ah, but this is a tv series, and not just a couple of movies. They have a lot more wiggle room.

    All you people complaining if they cut Uno missed an opportunity.

    I would be bloody mad if they cut flaming Uno from the bloody tv show.

    Actually, I think Masema would be more important to stay, but while I´m rehearing WoT as audiobooks, I thought Laras is a quite funny character, too.

    I'm wondering if some of the forsaken will be bundled a bit. There were a few of them that we didn't get to deep into and when we saw them they just died. I know the number 13 holds some sway being known as an unlucky number but not sure if they will carry all of them into the show.

    I think they could narrow it to 10, honestly, with little impact to the overall story line. Need to keep Rahvin, Lanfear, Asmodean, Graendal, Demandred, Moghedien and Semirhage, Ishamael and Mesaana. Aginor, Balthamel and Be'lal can go, they add very little to the story. If osan'gar and Aran'gar become a thing, they can just as easily be in the Taim category of new Forsaken.

    I'm at the end of book 11 and Mesaana has moved very little. Unless she has a big moment coming up, I can't imagine why she couldn't be merged with Moghedien. They've both been working from the shadows all the way through.

    No spoilers from this girl :) But subbing in Moghedien could work maybe. And 9 is a significant number.

    Heh thanks, I know that was totally an open door to spoilers. Unfortunately I've got a lot of spoilers already so I know some of the major events from the ending, but nothing specific about Mesaana (or Moghedien for that matter).

    I know how things end for Rand and Moridin, I know the final outcomes for Egwene and Gawyn, and I know what Demandred has been doing all this time. Which is basically the whole ending. :( curse you accidental internet spoilage! Nobody told me either, I just accidentally read things I shouldn't have while looking for maps.

    Yeah, that sucks, that takes away some of the impact of the Last Battle.

    You do still have some surprises coming though ;)

    I just want everyone to know this man sent me an Uno Nomesta Valentine this year. :p He is the bloody, flaming one.
