We previously saw the False Dragon Logain Abrar kill one of the Aes Sedai, leading the others to gentle him.

Liandrin, Moiraine, and Alanna are to stand trial and face the consequences for which they reach the White Tower. Read on to know what happened next and what fans thought of it.

The sixth episode saw Alanna (Priyanka Bose), Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), and Liandrin (Kate Fleetwood) answer to the Amyrlin Seat (Sophie Okonedo) for the improper trial of the False Dragon, Logain (Alvaro Morte). This resulted in the blame falling on Liandrin but the woman instead decided to also take Moiraine down with her as she told the head of the Aes Sedai about her travels, which Moiraine refuses to speak about. For this treachery, Moiraine is made to beg for mercy with a penance to be doled out later.

But what surprised fans was when Moiraine opens a portal at night to visit someone secretly and voila! it was none other than the Amyrlin Seat aka Siuan Sanche herself. Turns out the two are lovers as they indulge in some deep kisses and fondly embrace each other. Both the women have secretly been working together for a greater purpose with only each other to confide in. The scenes the two shared together were very intimate and loving which was quite a surprise after the curt, authoritative and tense exchange during the trial.

Fans absolutely loved the chemistry between the two and went into full-blown shipping mode when this happened. The new appearance of Sophie Okonedo as the Amyrlin seat was adored with fans commending her acting as well. Here's what they had to say.

A fan commented, "The question is #siuaraine the greatest love story of all time? Or, yes it is. That’s the answer. #TheWheelOfTime #Moiraine #SiuanSanche".

Another fan commented, "Okay, stepping away from Mat/Barney for a second to take a deep bow in front of Rosamund Pike and Sophie Okonedo for their performances in this episode. They owned it. They made it theirs. #TheWheelofTime #WoTShowSpoilers". Yet another tweet read, "I think the whole cast is really getting into it at this point and I was happy with all performances but Sophie Okonedo is just .. wow! Her demeanor is not how I imagined Siuan it’s somehow soooo much better. #TheWheelOfTime #WoTSpoilers #WoTShowSpoilers". A user also said, "Siuan and Moiraine were amazing in this episode Siuan's energy was immaculate #TheWheelOfTime."
