How we think the fight will go
Locke disguises himself as Rand’s best friend Perrin and spends a few days with Rand, waiting for the right moment to strike. Unfortunately, Locke’s thieving instincts get the better of him and he tries to sell Rand a fake Angreal. Rand immediately senses the deception and becomes enraged. He begins to weave Arrows of Fire at Locke. However, his implacable anger momentarily allows the voice in his head to take over and begin to channel enough One Power to destroy everything, including himself. Locke, sensing an opportunity, rushes at Rand while drawing a hidden knife from his boot, but he has one thing going against him: he’s not Rand al’Thor. Rand regains control over his mind just in time to weave Balefire at Locke, erasing him from existence.
Or so Locke would have you believe…
No, really, he’s wiped from existence.
