The Last Battle has begun. Mat is in command, to the perplexity of everybody who knows him. Rand has engaged with the Dark One directly. The forces of Light (Lightspawn?) have finally committed themselves, and all hangs by a thread.

Your hosts are Jeff Lake (@jeff_lake), Micah Sparkman, and Alice Sullivan.

Things on the battlefield don't get worse. In fact they get slightly better, as Hessalam's devious manipulation is revealed by Perrin (of all people). But after all this worse-getting, it's pretty dire. It's time for Mat to round up the troops for one last stand.

You're not going to believe this: the war is going even worse than before. The political leaders finally realize the dark source of their generals' troubles. Egwene meets Fortuona. Mat prevents them from strangling each other, which may be his most impressive victory yet.

We thought the war was going bad before, but now it's really going downhill. Rand heads to his fate in the Pit of Doom. Mat and the Seanchan mobilize to join the fight. Perrin has a whole bunch of awesome adventures that nobody else can see but are very important.
