There is a holiday in the village: the women brought Egwene to a river near the village so that she would trust the current and receive the magical power bestowed only on selected women. Men usually don’t have a gift. On this day, the Wise Moiraine arrives, accompanied by Lan, her faithful servant. And together with her arrival, the village holiday turns into a bloody massacre…
“The Wheel of Time ss 2”: release date, announcement
The sequel to the exciting fantasy “The Wheel of Time” became known even before the premiere of the season 1 — in May 2021. Why stop at just one season when the creators still have something to tell and show to the viewer?
According to some sources, the season 2 of “The Wheel of Time” is scheduled for release in the fall of 2022. However, more detailed information is not yet available. It is known that the rights to broadcast new episodes remain with Amazon Prime Video.
Moiraine is used to being negatively received everywhere. A faithful guardian Lan follows her everywhere, protecting her from the invasion of the Dark One and his minions. The woman owns the powers of Aes Sedai and can use them, but tries not to show all her power in front of strangers. She arrived in the village out of necessity – she felt that there was a man who could destroy enemies.
Just then, the nearest bar was noisy, celebrating Egwene’s reincarnation. The girl has been dating a guy named Rand for a long time, but having magic means always being lonely. Girls braided their braids before initiation. The braid was believed to contain the strength of her sisters. And if she feels that she is not needed by anyone, then she can take up the braid and remember that she is not alone.
Rand is saddened by the events, but there is no other way out – he will have to let go of his beloved. The only distraction was the presence of Moiraine. She was looking through the eyes of someone who is capable of influencing the future fate of mankind. But her attempts were in vain. She could not read information from people who came across on the way. And there was not much time – the messengers of the Dark side appeared.
Frame from the TV showWhile the civilians were looking for a way to escape, Moiraine, Lan and four young people defended the settlement. Perrin Aybara defended his wife. Having killed the last monster, he accidentally hit his wife, taking her life. Heartbroken, he did not know how to live on.
Rand stood guard over his father and was happy when Moiraine healed his fatal wound. Egwene and others could not do without losses — such a bloody massacre in their village has never happened.
Lan was the first to spot the hordes of enemies far away in the mountains. Moiraine ordered Perrin, Egwene, Rand, and local gambler Mat Cauthon to travel with her to the only safe place, Tar Valon. In her opinion, one of them is a future savior, which means it is necessary to save his life. And while they get to the cherished place, darkness devours everything around. Dangerous adventures await travelers that can delay them on the way for a long time. Will Moiraine protect her people?..
