Moiraine is under attack from the Aes Sedai in the preview for episode 6 of Amazon’s “The Wheel of Time”. The series is based on the same-named Robert Jordan fantasy novel series, which was published in 14 installments from 1990 to 2013. Brandon Sanderson completed the manuscripts for the final three novels, which were released posthumously. So far, the first season of Amazon Prime’s adaptation of the series has covered the plot of the first novel, The Eye of the World, which released its first three episodes on November 19, 2021.
“The Wheel of Time” was an instant hit, attracting tens of millions of viewers and establishing itself as one of the top five Prime series premieres of all time, as well as the first of 2021. Moiraine, a member of the Aes Sedai, a group of women gifted with magical power, is the protagonist of the series. She’s collected a group of people, claiming that one of them is the Dragon Reborn, a fabled character whose reincarnated form is either destined to destroy or save the world. Rosamund Pike, Madeleine Madden, Josha Stradowski, Marcus Rutherford, Zo Robins, Barney Harris, and Daniel Henney star as Moiraine in the series.
Amazon Prime has released a new trailer for “The Wheel of Time” episode 6, titled “The Flame of Tar Valon,” which will show on December 10, 2021. The teaser reiterates the dismal truth that “the Dragon will either vanquish the Dark One or join him,” following the events of episode 5, which deviated significantly from the storyline of the “Wheel of Time” novels. When Moiraine is threatened by the Aes Sedai, the tension rises, and the trailer ends with the gloomy proclamation that “there’s no turning back.” Take a look at the video below:
“Wheel of Time” has already been renewed for a second season due to the series’ success. The season, which began filming in July of this year and will wrap in February 2022, is expected to be released. Guy Roberts as Uno Nomesta, Arnas Fedaravicius as Masema, and Gregg Chillingirian as Ingtar Shinowa has been cast as part of the season’s primary ensemble, which will most likely begin with the second novel in the series, The Great Hunt.
On December 24, 2021, “The Wheel of Time’s” eight-episode first season will come to an end. It’s anyone’s guess how Moiraine’s current arc will end, given how far it’s already deviated from the source material. If it follows the main arc of the book series, a great battle will loom on the horizon, and her pursuit of the Dragon will reach a fever pitch by the end.
