    I too had been thinking they would have the girls be together, I was thinking Elayne and Avi because they spend the most time together without Rand. But I had forgotten the sister ceremony, I doubt they'll cut that. Well, we shall see, maybe it'll simply be implied that they could have their own relationships :cheese

    I think they're going for a TV-14 feeling based on one of Rafe's tweets, so maybe some making out and partial nudity, but also not GoT full-on stuff.

    In a way I see that, because that's how it's written also, but I also think there's so much dark content, there's a lot of room to take it in a more adult direction and I'm a little disappointed if they've chosen not to. I also don't know how they're going to do things like Tylin and Mat in a TV-14 way. That's a straight up rape scene.

    WORD. I remember completely not even noticing that scene being a problem when I first read the series as a teenager. As an adult who is more aware of consent, I was deeply annoyed at how that relationship was handled.

    So add that to my wish list for changes: inject some friggin' consent into that situation. Mat can be bashful without being unwilling.

    Just popping in to say that if they cut Aviendha, I am of the mind to poorly edit her in there myself. :lol

    They cannot take my favorite character away from meeeeee!!

    Agreed
    :ha
    She is my favorite one out of the three for me.
    I feel like for the blood that is going to spilled during the story they may shy away for the sex scenes but still be heavy on combat. So it should still be up there in MA, but because of the violence and not the sex.

    I already made my suggestion for the mat and tylin thing. As far as the 3 go, I'm actually really ambivalent about how they do it, though I would have a small problem if they turned it into 2 monogamous pairings as it would kill Aviendha's character

    For the romantic relationships, this is how I hope to see it. I feel Min is so devoted to Rand she almost seems Monogamous to me, with friendly relationships with her metamours. I do think Elayne and Avi should be in love, it makes sense and wouldn't be a huge jump from their relationship how it is already(and I want to see them bang). I'd also like to see Elayne bedding Guybon! She already considers him for a third warder and she's obviously attracted to him. That would all make it more consensual nonmonogamy to me, although I'm almost done with my reread at the moment and I an not getting Rand's harem vibe at all, it's already poly, they can just highlight that a little.

    Needless to say, cutting any of the women would be detrimental to the show and Rand, imo. I am also looking forward to see positive representation of non traditional relationships.

    As for Gawyn... ugh. I would be just fine with our Amyrlin not having a love interest at all. Isn't it totally ok for a woman to choose her career, ie The Tower over romance? If they don't skip it, I hope he learns to obey her as he should. OR she could bond Galad. He's way better.

    The idea of expanding/morphing Rand and the 3 is so good, I love their whole dynamic and it is one of my favorite storylines overall. As far as other relationships ....
    I really don't like or understand the Thom/Moiraine thing. I like Thom settling into his Elayne's Papa role, rather than embarking on a new romance. I think it is out of character for them both, tbh
