  1. iirc, Rand first touches the true source when they’re fleeing Emond’s Field to strengthen Bela, and then acts crazy on Bayle Domon’s boat as a symptom, not when he calls down lightening to free himself and Mat from that cellar in Four Kings.

    • Good catch. I’ll adjust the text. I must have swept over that part. Did moraine go to strengthen Bela, and bela didn’t need it? I feel like that was how it was described.

      • I’m enjoying the map while listening to the audiobook years after reading the book. It’s fun to see what you missed the first time through, and I realized that Rand actually touches the source (I believe) a few times early on. One is definitely when he will Bella to “RUN!” and Moraine later comments that she is indeed in need of the least healing. In Baerlon, when he first confronts the Whitecloaks after Mat’s prank, it also describes his feeling really silly and having tingling arms and tons of energy, etc. That sounds like a touch to me possibly. There is one other time before that where it mentions him feeling his bones aching and tingling, blood on fire, etc., and that happens before Baerlon and possibly before Bella – iirc, it’s during the Winter’s Night events. Of course, the first time reading/listening, you don’t realize it. :) I could be wrong, but it seems like early seeds of touching the source there and each time, it gets stronger until he realizes it. (Of course, he may have inadvertently done so before whenever he uses the flame & the void trick, especially during the archery events.) Thoughts?

        • Oh, you know what, though – that feeling he gets when confronting the Whitecloaks in Baerlon is probably not touching the source but the after effects from the Bella incident. It does say he feels like he is getting sick; a cold or so. So, maybe the Bella deal really was the first time. The earlier could have just been soreness from the events combined with adrenaline. :) I’ll stop thinking out loud now. B&A!
