So I'm a good ways into book 2. If you read the title, you probably know where I am. This is the only time in the series so far where I felt like the characters have done something truly stupid. Why would they blindly trust Liandrin, a red ajah, without consulting ANYONE else in the tower. They had no reason to trust her, or her claims of the black ajah running amok in the tower. Nynaeve should have easily picked up on the fact that Liandrin is the unscrupulous sort. Blah, rant over. Poor Egwene.
