    Rafe answered a Q&A saying we're going to get Narg on screen, so that's exciting, but the German Wheel of Time account accidentally released an extended clip of the Moiraine teaser, and you could see a trolloc in the background. Rafe did clarify that this clip is not finished and not to base our expectations on it, but in case you wanted to see it, @UnravelingWoT posted a zoomed-in shot of it.

    It was also all over Instagram a few weeks ago. You can find it for example on @wot.series
    The original posts seems to be gone though, that's why there was no officiel TV.net re-post.

    It's not playing any more for me, either-- it wasn't the entire clip of Moiraine embracing the source with the glimpse at her costume, but a zoomed in section on the background put into black and white with contrast and such bumped up to make it clearer.

    It was a trolloc in full armor, taking a few steps and swinging a weapon. I thought it looked pretty cool, although some fans were worried because they assumed it was final product/ final rendering (Rafe made it clear it was not). The best thing about its movement, in my opinion, was how it was moving in a "human" way, with speed and agility that didn't quite match up with its size (much bigger than the human it was attacking)-- which would make it a terrifying opponent. I think Winternight is going to be a lot of fun when it airs.
