This is mastery.

On page 204 of the paperback version of Eye of the World, Robert Jordan tells you exactly what one of three major characters will do on page 800 of the hardback of book 13, Towers of Midnight, which was outlined and partially drafted by Robert Jordan before his death but posthumously completed by Brandon Sanderson.

That’s roughly 13,000 pages of acute foreshadowing.

And anyone who has read the series will know it’s not a fluke. Seeming innocuous comments from the very first pages will sketch out the future of most characters upon a critical rereading of the series.
