[OB] Kaladin and the fourth oath

2 posts in this topic

So I dunno I was just thinking about it because it's been bothering me. It was a really nice curveball from Brandon, because we all kind of assumed he was going to say it. Then he didn't. 

I think we have enough information on screen to eek out the fourth ideal. I don't think it's about protecting. I think it's about killing.

"I can't lose him, but.....oh, Almighty...I can't save him."


"I will kill the ones that......"

or

"I will kill those who endanger humanity"

or even like Szeth
 

"I will lead for Dalinar Kholin" - If he said that and he is sure Dalinar is about to turn the dial up to evil 11, he just can't do it.

He couldn't say the words because he knew if he did he would presumably have to kill Dalinar, and he couldn't do it. In part one Kaladin and Syl have a conversation about morality and who is right and who is wrong. The Fourth Ideal I believe for windrunners has to do with choosing a side. Just like Szeth's third ideal. Kaladin can't choose. Just like the windrunner crystal. They first 3 ideals have to do with protecting, and they have to know all the parshendi aren't bad.

Subject is discussed at length here.

Probably better to keep the same discussion in one place.
