Enjoy Wheel of Time Episode 8 Reaction and Review: Does the Season 1 Finale Succeed?

Published on May 17, 2022

*Beware SPOILERS in this video* The Season 1 Finale of Wheel of Time has come and gone. Does the first season of Amazon’s book adaptation end on a high note, does it go down in flames, or is it somewhere between? What happens to Rand? Do we meet the Dark One? Will Perrin finally get some love and attention?

As someone who hasn’t read the books, I continue to share my thoughts on the series. Let’s talk about the choice Rand faces, the reveal of the Dark One (or so we’re told), and whether or not you can get *ahem* burnt out on watching Nynaeve use the One Power for the benefit of others? (Bad joke, but you’ll get it if you’ve seen it already. Forgive me!)

If you’ve been watching Wheel of Time, what do you think of the show’s finale? Will you watch Season 2 of Wheel of Time, if it’s truly on the way? Agree with my opinions here, or disagree — either way, I want to hear from you in the comments!

More reviews are coming in 2022! We’ll be settled in with kiddo #2 by then, and I’ve got way more content in the works, so stay tuned.
