I was reading one of the Baerlon chapters, and Mat was going to tell the inn staff about running away from trollocs. Lan was annoyed, because he had expected the boys to have enough sense to not say anything, but Mat's argument was something like "you never said not to talk about trollocs" So, when they are in Shadar Logoth and Moiraine says "did anyone give you anything", they really should have know better and that he wouldn't include "no, I just took it" in that. Moiraine's attitude there was really foolish I also decided the boys were entirely justified in not trusting her enough to tell her about the dreams. She had only just told them that she would be willing to kill them to keep them out of the Dark One's hands. Going up to her and saying "by the way, he's in my dreams' would have been insane. I'm still not clear on how ba'alzamon broke the rat's backs - was he there in person and did it? Did he bring the rats into TAR - how is that even possible?
