Review:  ‘The Wheel of Time’ Episode 4 “The Dragon Reborn”

If you thought that the first three episodes of The Wheel of Time were compelling enough to pique your interest, then the fourth episode—”The Dragon Reborn”—will be what convinces you to commit fully to Amazon Prime’s ambitious new fantasy series.

At the start of the episode, audiences are introduced to the False Dragon, Logain Ablar (Alvaro Morte), and the scene provides a brief glimpse into his backstory, revealing what occurred prior to when he was apprehended by the Aes Sedai. 

For those who are unaware of Robert Jordan’s novels, the series does a great job at providing the right amount of information and worldbuilding, never overwhelming audiences with new and complex details about the world.

Perhaps the most compelling part of “The Dragon Reborn” is the slowly forming friendship between Nynaeve (Zoë Robins) and Lan Mandragoran (Daniel Henney).

The weakest aspect of the episode came in the form of the journey that Egwene (Madeleine Madden) and Perrin (Marcus Rutherford) are taking with the Tinkers.
