Please note this video has MASSIVE spoilers in it for Rhythm of War, so finish the book first before watching! Put your comments below on your list of crazy things. I couldn't get everything I wanted here, because of course, I had to be Vorin about this and have exactly ten things.

Hey, these are obviously RoW spoilers. Throwing it in a tag to be safe.
 

Spoiler

The scenes that hit me the hardest emotionally are the healing of a broken man scenes. In this case, Dabbid’s PoV. (In OB it was Hobber healing his legs). And I guess also Kaladin saying the 4th oath and doing some healing of his own.

I am sure I'm not the only person who was clearly reading this book waaaay too late into the night to notice one of the big reveals mentioned

Spoiler

I mean, after reading that Thaidakar was clearly an off world cognitive shadow who wanted to figure out how to world hop and THEN having him referred to as Lord of Scars, my very sleepy, slow brain said "must be someone we already know I wONdEr WhO iT cOuLD Be???" And I seriously just passed it by and thought nothing more of it, assuming it was not something I'd figure out any time soon. 

Yeah, I really have to blame the late night brain fog because anything else would be inexcusable.

Same! I was like "Oh what a neat title that is" and "Haha, Hoid is funny."

Then hopped on the forums and had my mind blown.

Kaladin starting a mental health clinic. So many moments in his arc had me tearing up, but when he first finds Noril and is just like “nope, he’s mine now, we’re doing this different.” So good! 
 

The Navani prologue informing her arc of accepting that she truly is awesome. And yes! All the lights! And the tones/rhythms. Her relationship with Raboniel was so great. And I loved seeing the diversity in Fused/Singer attitudes. Brandon is doing great at making sure we see that they as a group and individuals are just as deep and complex as the humans. I so badly want them to be able to find a way to live together. 

Yes to all ten of your moments! So much mind blowing madness. I’m really hoping that since book 5 is already outlined that it won’t take a full 3 years to get it. Probably wishful thinking but oh well. I am still just trying to absorb it all so I can’t wait to do a re-read and see how I feel after. Every time I re read Brandon’s books I grow to love them even more.

I also completely missed this. I just listened to this podcast right after finishing. Mind=Blow on this point.
