If Urithiru was an ark, I bet Nohadon built it.  It would be... Nohadon's Ark.  I'll see myself out.

On the different eyes of humans:

Many of the Heralds have epicanthal folds for instance Jezrien, Ash, Taln and Nale. No one in modern day looking at them remarks on them having “Shin eyes”.
 

Dalinar remarks on Jezrien looking almost Alethi in OB Ch 42. 
The only thing he found weird about Jezrien’s eyes is that they were dark.

Since the Heralds were born on Ashyn, except maybe Ash, some had epicanthal folds were on Ashyn. 
 

Maybe everyone but the pale big eyed people left or maybe people like Jezrien started the desolation and many expanded out. Some that looked like that stayed behind, but the pale big eyed people were like “this is your fault” and wiped out /exiled the ones that looked different.

It would fit with their “banish the truthless to go kill”. They punish people  by making them leave Shinovar and do a solo-desolation.

Great episode! I laughed so hard at everyone inserting "Sh" in front of words, which made me look insane as I shopped for groceries in this COVID-19 induced panic. 

The Stone Shamans/Shin leadership give me a lot of vibes from Mistborn:

Spoiler

Kandra leadership knowing the truth but doing nothing.

 

Maybe we haven't seen the Sibling because the Stone Shamans have bonded it somehow? Hence the "Spirits of the Stones themselves" comment? Also, I believed that Szeth bonded his first spren and they were urgently telling Szeth to sound the alarm. But since it just crossed over it couldn't explain much and so Szeth couldn't either. But I wonder how they forced him to break his bond...

It's possible they didn't, his bond was just repressed like Shallan's was. Which would explain why managed to get a Highspren's attention so quickly- he's always been bonded to that Highspren.

That may be true. But didn't Nale's Skybreakers in Oathbringer kind of insinuate that Highspren follow their group to bond new potential recruits? I may be misremembering or just misunderstood.

Are you guys Shinsinuating that there are going to be some Shinternational problems with Dalinar sending an embassy? I really want to see Lift stealing from one of the Shamans and then having this Edgedancer fight over a pancake.

I have two comments:

  1. "But from my perspective it's the Jedi Stone Shamans who are evil!" -Szeth-son-son-Vallano, played by Hayden ChrisShinShin
  2. Is it possible that the spirits of the stones that promised the Desolations were over were the Heralds?
