Natasha looks like a Faile.
Barthanes, in the books was not a young man… Will Tudor could be a different Damodred…
He was pretty good in Shadowhunters. I guess Barthanes can be young, eh?
Jayahendry looks similar to the actress who plays Egwene. Perhaps we get a scene from the past, when XXXXX arrived in Two Rivers with XXXXX?
