Adoloin/Sadeas confrontation was foreshadowed as early as Chapter 12 of The Way Of Kings

8 posts in this topic

Here is the quote for those who want it.

It’s a line by Renarin, spoken to his brother Adolin.

“I don’t like you get when you are around Sadeas.”

 

So yeah, I just started a reread, and I thought that line was worth noting. Brandon FORESHADOWED the conflict All the way in chapter 12 the FIRST TIME WE MEET THESE CHARACTERS.

And I don’t know if it’s relavent or not but given how we later learn about Renarin Voidbinding visions of the future, is it possible he’s been seeing them since before we met him? And ONE of the reasons he’s worried is because of a vision?  I don’t know but in any case this little bit here gained SO much new relavance. That I had to share it.

I don't think that Renarin had bonded Glys at that point in time, so he couldn't have been voidbinding.

Was that ever confirmed?

We can narrow down when he bonded Glys by his visions, eyesight healing, and refusal to touch shardblades.  It's been a while, so I don't remember off the top of my head when those occurred in relation to Ch 12.

Nah, that's just establishing the Adolin/Sadeas relationship. The murder is simply the culmination of the relationship.

Foreshadowing would have been if Renarin had said "I always get worried you just get out your dagger and stab him".

 : D That’s pretty funny.

But, speaking of relationships, it also helps to establish how observant Renarin is when it comes to his brother.

Also helps you realize that Renarin is there whether you remember him all the time or not. He's quiet but observant.

Helps since Brandon had to save him for his part, which has really been coming into the light.
