The Eye of the World is a mysterious location found within the Blight.

Overview[]

It is believed that the Eye of the World is where Lews Therin Telamon and his companions trapped the Dark One at the end of the Age of Legends at the cost of almost everything.[1]

However, the Eye of the World appears to be even more mysterious, as although many believed the Dark One to be present at the location, Ishamael was in fact located there instead. Thus, the present knowledge about the location is thrown into question.[2]

History[]

Pre-series[]

It is believed that the Eye of the World is the location where Lews Therin Telamon imprisoned the Dark One at the end of the Age of Legends, but this knowledge is called into question by the presence of Ishamael at the Eye, rather than the Dark One Himself.

Almost all knowledge of the Eye of the World was lost when all records of its existence was purged from the White Tower Library by Darkfriends.[2]

Season 1[]

Siuan Sanche begins dreaming of what she believes to be the Dark One at the Eye of the World, weak and yet clinging to His power. She tells Moiraine Damodred about her dreams upon her return to the White Tower, believing they can defeat the Dark One if Moiraine goes with the five potential Dragons Reborn to the Eye.

After Moiraine asks Siuan to exile her from the White Tower, she gathers Rand al'Thor, Mat Cauthon, Perrin Aybara, Egwene al'Vere and Nynaeve al'Meara by the Tar Valon Waygate, hoping to take them through the Ways to reach the Eye of the World in time. The group begins to make their journey, though Mat is left behind outside the Waygate.[1] The party journeys through the Ways to Fal Dara, where she tells the four remaining youths that she must bring them all to the Eye of the World, knowing that three of them would die. However, Rand comes forward and told Moiraine that he was the Dragon Reborn, and the two head into the Blight alone, with Moiraine masking Lan's bond.[3]

On their way to the Eye, Ishamael begins to invade Rand's dreams, though he and Moiraine still believe he is the Dark One. They eventually find their way to the Eye itself, and Moiraine enters with Rand, even though she believes it will mean certain death for her. Rand begins to recall some vague memories from his previous life, and stands on a symbol of a circle divided into two black and white halves by a curved line. He enters an imaginary realm controlled by Ishamael, resembling the Two Rivers, and is tempted with the promise of marrying Egwene and having a child with her, living the perfect life. At the Eye, Moiraine is confronted by Ishamael, and goes to attack him, but is cut off from the One Power. However, she draws a knife and hold it at Rand's throat, threatening to kill him if he chooses the Dark. Rand realizes that the true Egwene would not want to live in such a reality, and draws on the power from the seated man sa'angreal to seemingly defeat Ishamael. Realizing that he will succumb to madness due to the corruption of saidin, Rand leaves, asking Moiraine to tell the others that he died. When Lan approaches the Eye after tracking Moiraine, she realizes that the symbol Rand was standing on was made of cuendillar, and has been shattered. She realizes that the confrontation was not the Last Battle, but only the first.[2]
