Why Min's Prediction In The Wheel Of Time Means More Than You Think

The following article contains spoilers for "The Wheel of Time" Episode 7.

"The Wheel of Time" basically functions as Amazon's answer to "Game of Thrones." It's an epic fantasy show based on a popular novel series that rewards those familiar with the source material while drawing in a new audience with its high-concept storylines and addictive worldbuilding.

"The Wheel of Time" is a show that rewards those who pay attention to the small details, and nowhere is that more evident than with Episode 7. This particular installment does a lot of heavy lifting in terms of setting things up for the future of the franchise, which is a good thing seeing how the series has already been renewed for a second season. It's a sign of how confident Amazon is in the series and the belief that it could become audiences' next obsession.

From Rand (Josha Stradowski) realizing he's the Dragon Reborn to Min (Kae Alexander) having a vision of Rand with a baby, there were many bread crumbs left behind that will undoubtedly pay off at a later date. But there's one moment, in particular, that deserves a second watch from "The Dark Along the Way."

Min foresaw Rand's love life

In Episode 7, Min tells Rand about a Dragonmount vision, and shortly thereafter, she makes a connection between Rand and whom she describes as "three beautiful women." This isn't just her attempt to give Rand more self-confidence; it's, in fact, teasing the romance story Rand has throughout the books, which follows the character as he goes on to fall head over heels with three female characters. 

One thing that may not have been clear in the episode is that Min herself is one of these women. More than likely, the TV version of Min knows she's destined to fall in love with Rand, but she's keeping her secrets close to the chest, as it were. The other two women go by the names of Aviendha, who's a member of the Aiel, and Elayne, who's a princess of Andor. 

Audiences haven't been introduced to these women yet, but rest assured, they're coming to the series. In a Reddit AMA session, "The Wheel of Time" showrunner Rafe Judkins confirmed that the role of Aviendha has been cast, although there's no word yet on who has the part (via CBR). Meanwhile, Elayne will also have a role going into Season 2, and she'll be portrayed by Ceara Coveney (via Screen Rant). This prophecy is just getting started, but we'll have to wait until Season 2 drops to see if it plays out any differently on Amazon Prime than the novels.
