Don't we kind of need to for the story to make sense? Why else would Moiraine go looking for the dragon reborn?
I'm sure there are lots of ways they could work around this, like they find a lost document in the Library or something. In one of the videos that Amazon has put out, Moiraine says something like, "20 years ago, I learned a secret," not that she overheard a prophecy. Maybe, in the show, all of the Aes Sedai know about the Dragon's Rebirth or something? Who knows! The trailer shows Siuan as Amyrlin administering the Oaths to Moiraine, so some changes have clearly been made. But I would really love to hear someone deliver that Foretelling in the quote from the books: "He is born again! I feel him!" and so on. If the show depicts an Aes Sedai darting up out of her chair, face full of terror, and delivers those lines before crashing to the floor dead, I will lose my entire mind.

Might we possibly have a Tinker? (This is from the Perrin/Egwene/Whitecloaks scene)

I've been watching the dusty wheel live stream and they think it's Aram
Yes, the breakdown with Rafe Judkins (which my phone autocorrected to “Rage Justin’s”, so there’s that) confirmed that it’s Aram.

Nice.

Edit: I just watched it. I honestly though saidin was black because it's the black side of the Aes Sedai symbol, it didn't even occur to me that it was the taint / "corruption" :laugh:

(Also seriously I get why they changed it but that's going to be quite the adjustment to make when discussing show vs books :P )

Just think of it as a creative challenge—we can’t make the same taint jokes that we’ve been making for decades, so we have to joke about something else. :D

not the best quality, but you can see something wrapped around Nynaeve's arm as shes tugging her braid.

I mean... That is a true statement. She did hear a prophesy and learned that it must remain a secret. I see no falsehood here.
Oh, sorry, I wasn’t clear. I don’t think that’s an untrue statement, I just think it can cover more potential options than “I was one of three people present when Gitara Moroso had a Foretelling announcing the imminent birth of the Dragon Reborn.” Show Moiraine saying that she learned a secret 20 years ago does not necessarily mean that I am going to get to see a high budget dramatization of Gitara Sedai’s Foretelling, is the point I guess I’m trying to get across. :D

So who do you think is fighting the Aiel?

I LOOOOOVEEEDDDD this trailer!!!

I also thought it was interesting that they said Nyneave was ta'veren/potentially the Dragon Reborn....

When I watched Rafe's input, I really liked his description/interpretation of the Aes Sedai/Warder bond, too! :love
