The Wheel of Time season 2 teaser hints on the Aiel Waste
At simply over 30 seconds, there’s not too a lot to be gleaned from this teaser, however it’s nonetheless a enjoyable option to mark the top of capturing. It’s good to see collection stars Rosamund Pike (Moiraine), Josha Stradowski (Rand al’Thor), Zoë Robbins (Nynaeve al’Maera) and the remainder once more. There’s additionally a quick shot of Stradowski getting thrown like a rag doll by a stunt coordinator, which is superior. From the way in which he’s being tossed, you need to marvel in the event that they’re prepping for a scene with trollocs or another terrifying foe. Who else might slam Rand down like that?
It might be a member of the Aiel, the fierce warrior individuals who inhabit the desert referred to as the Aeil Waste or the Three-fold Land. It’s already been confirmed that the Aiel Maiden of the Spear Aviendha might be performed by Ayoola Smart. Just how a lot of the Aiel will we see in season 2?

This is notable as a result of we don’t really go to the Waste in Robert Jordan’s novels till e-book 4, The Shadow Rising, though we do meet Aiel who’ve ventured past the mountain border of their territory earlier than that. Maybe our characters will go to the Waste forward of time, or possibly we’ll see some band of Aiel warriors set out.
Also of observe, there’s no signal of Dónal Finn, who stepped in to exchange Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon this season. No doubt the group behind The Wheel of Time are biding their time for the proper second to introduce us to the brand new Mat.
