I'm rereading (or rather, listening to audiobook versions of) the Wheel of Time series.
When Thom told Rand and Mat to run away from the Fade in Whitebridge, Rand was certain Thom would be dead. Under normal circumstances, I would agree, since Fades aren't exactly merciful, pacifist creatures.
However, Moiraine was 100% sure Thom was still alive, despite Rand's insistence. I know Moiraine and Thom would later bond and get married. Did Moiraine have a reading from Min to be sure of that? Or did she learn or deduce that knowledge elsewhere?
