Results of the Last Battle

How will this massive and ridiculously involved saga end? Will Rand defeat the Dark One utterly, and happily ever after there after? Will the Dark One be triumphant, the world in chaos forever? Will Rand make a new prison for the Dark One using both saidin and saidar? Well, how about this one - it doesn't end.

Do I mean the series will never end? I hope it doesn't, but it will. No, what I mean is the Dark One will be temporarily sealed, like Ages before. He will threaten to break free in another Age. The Dragon will be reborn again and again.

This ending is the one that I feel is the way it should end. After all, the series is called The WHEEL of Time. A wheel as in things go round and round... I feel that the Age the story is being played has happened before. They are repeating what has happened, and no matter how hard they try, it will happen again. And this theory has been hinted in every book in the series. I mean, every dang book starts off with the reminder to this.

wotmania says: I really hope the series ends with the Dark One dead and gone for good. I realize it is called the WHEEL of time, but still... I would hate to think we have read about what is essentially a meaningless turning of a wheel that never stops. I do not want to think that! I want a happy ending - perhaps with the end of channeling and time progressing linearly into the future?

Wheels

Posted by Lord Nazh on 14.04.01 00:00
if the DO wins, the wheel breaks, time flows linear, if Rand wins, the DO is imprisoned again until another age when .... wars are forgotten..... you get the drift again

wish I could remember who said that, Ill try to find it before to long and post it to you....

So I think, rand wins, but the wheel keeps going after the story is over and yes, it technically would be meaninless but fun

If he DO wins

If the DO wins, the Wheel doesn't break. The DO has won before, in fact! Jordan has as much as said that this is just the story of one turning of the wheel.
There's even a reference to a game piece that resembles Rand... don't remember where the reference was, though...
Anyway, the Wheel will keep turning regardless....

Lews therin's wishes

I do not think the Dark One will be temporarily sealed away again. Why? Well, I really got the idea from reading this theory a minute ago, so I haven't really thought it through yet. The thing is you said that the Dark One is dead and the Dragon will never have to be reborn again. That is it!!!
The thing is; Lews Therin is always going on about how he wants to die forever, but he'll never get to die forever if he doesn't really KILL the Dark One. So he will...
Did I make any sense at all?

Final Battle

Hasn't RJ also mentioned...many, many, many times that this is The Last Battle. That if, Rand (The Dragon Reborn) doesnt defeat the Dark One, that the shadow shall rule (wince) RandLand?

(I can't believe I used the RL...too much reading of this site...)

it is an end but there are no ends

Posted by loki of the black tower on 08.04.03 18:27
In my opinion Rand will win. But, even in winning it isn't an end to things because he can't completely kill the dark one because if he did there would be nothing for aes sedai that have yet to come and at the same time have come before to drill into in the search for more power. Inevitably what I am saying is that while Rand may win the Dark One will exist forever or if he is destroyed the world will go with him and the creator will make everything over again and the wheel will keep going

Round and round it goes...

I hope that the Dark One only will be inprisoned anew. I agree to whoever said that ít is if the DO wins that the wheel will be broken.
I would love an ending that somehow say that the whole thing would repeat itself ´til the end of time(the DO wins?)

the wheel turning hey?

they say that the wheel goes in cycles. but what is in the cycles is not necessarily determined. what if what rand does in TG is to "remodel" the wheel so that the dark one never has the chance to escape or he makes a prison that is impregnable or even better, he makes a continuous stoke of something simillar to the age of legends. sounds a bit optimistic or far fetched, the RJ has not set down a world that has boundaries yet, everything changes as he pleases, but i dont think he is a let down writer in that he wont have such an obvious ending with a repeating cycle of dark one getting free and sealed and with the dragon, so on.
