Okay, so, I'm one of those people who can read a book, over and over again. And it's always like meeting up with an old friend. Well, last week I allowed myself to reread my Sarah J Maas books -- yes, I have to limit myself -- I have to force myself to read other authors, too. At any rate, I reread ACOTAR and ACOMAF. Now I'm rereading the actual ToG series. And I just finished The Assassin and The Healer. Now please be warned, there are some mild *spoilers* in this post, so if you have NOT read Empire of Storms, just beware. Now, on to my theory.
In EoS, all the old connections responded to Aelin's tug. Everyone she'd met up with throughout the whole series was back, and came to her call, EXCEPT Yrene Towers! And at first I didn't think too much of it. Chaol had to go to Antica to the Torre for healing, it made sense that Yrene would be needed there, and not anywhere else in the series. She's not a fighter after all, she's a HEALER. With MAGICAL POWERS TO HEAL. Aelin has to sacrifice herself to save everyone; essentially she's going to have to die, or come incredibly close to it. She's battered and beaten, and locked in that darned iron box, unable to heal herself.
So here's what I'm thinking. Remember all those long talks she and Chaol used to have? When she'd share things with him. Well, what if she told Chaol about Yrene, and then Yrene and Chaol meet up and he relays to her just WHO exactly Aelin is. Chaol gets healed, he gets word of what the heck happened to Aelin in EoS, and he tells Yrene who comes back to HEAL AELIN with her MAGICAL POWERS!! And then omgosh, Aelin and Rowan can be together!!
Aelin ALWAYS has a plan. Most likely she knew a lot of this was possible, and planned in advance for it, including maybe sending Chaol to find Yrene.... I HAVE to believe that all this will end all right. It must. MUST.
So, yeah, that's what I'm thinking...how's this sound to you? What are your theories??
Is it September 2017 yet???
