    I can hope for Siuan next, though. :yes I mean, with the first season being in Moiraine's perspective, it's a possibility that she'll show up sooner.

    The Trakands would be awesome.

    I wish Aviendha showed up sooner. :grumble

    I hope that it will be Elayne, Min, and Aviendha, as well as Siuan. Although Aviendha is doubtful since she doesn't show up till later.

    Oh my, I never even knew they were considering that, it would have been pure heresy. WoT is amazing to me because it has so many elements, and Thom is one of those that make up the whole.

    Thanks on the LOTR clarification, I actually didn't know at all, was just pondering.

    Oh no, it was never a plan for them to drop Thom. It was just a fan theory because they showed Tam first. I still think they could have dropped Thom, but I am very glad they didn't!

    ^ This.

    I'm thinking Trakands, Elaida, Min and Galad would be next. Will be good to know which characters are to be cut soon. Can't they just announce that so we don't have to wonder :lol
    A few people have pointed out that we need some more female characters announced. Doing Elayne, Morgase and Elaida could work. I like Min and Elayne being announced at the same time as well. Elayne, Gawyn and Galad together makes the most sense for me personally though, mostly because the characters are introduced in the same scene in the books.

    If the rumours of episode six being called "The Flame of Tar Valon" is true Siuan should be announced at one point during these announcements as well. Crossing my fingers for Verin soon as well. So excited to see her ^^

    I'm hoping they'll give us Min, Elayne, Morgase, and Elaida to match up with showing us four men this week.

    This is such great news! :joy

    Siuan is one of my favorite characters, I can't wait to see who they will pick.

    We need to see Min soon, we meet her before Caemlyn after all! Although, I wouldn't be super surprised if they rolled her into the Caemlyn plot to save time. Not much would change by cutting Baerlon.

    8 episodes feels really short for a season.

    Hope they aren’t planning on getting into TGH with that or it’s going to be super rushed.

    Personally I struggle to even see getting eotw done in that.

    Yikes eight episodes does seem really short. I think a lot of the "road to Caemlyn" plot could be sped up, but I'll be sorry to lose the "slow burn" of Rand's storyline.

    If the length of each episode is an hour, I can totally see it.

    I think he looks like a great Valda! He's not like what I saw in my head reading it, but I'm glad for that. The cast in my head was admittedly very white, and I'm glad to see poc that fit the spirit of the characters. If more shows do that, maybe I can re-train my brain when I read.

    Seems like we have Alanna and her warders.

    "Bose will play Alanna Mosvani, a member of the same organization of powerful women as Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) — the Aes Sedai. She’s renowned for both her kindness and her temper. And instead of having one Warder like Moiraine, she has two — Ihvon (Imani) and Maksim (Napier). The three of them have a complicated relationship built on love, sex and respect that welds them into a fearsome force in battle."


    Sorry for bad post, on my phone and in a hurry :)
