4.6: Perrin's Dreams

From The Dragon Reborn

[TDR: 43, Shadowbrothers, 425]

Mat, rattling a dice cup. His opponent stared at Mat with eyes of fire. Mat did not seem to see the man, but Perrin knew him. "Mat!" he shouted. "It's Ba'alzamon. Light, Mat, you're dicing with Ba'alzamon!"

This is likely referring to Mat's "bet" with Rhavin/Gaebril in TDR.

[TDR: 43, Shadowbrothers, 426]

Egwene and Nynaeve and Elayne stood looking at a huge metal cage, with a raised door held on a heavy spring. They stepped in and reached up together to loose the catch. The barred door snapped down behind them. A woman with her hair all in braids laughed at them, and another woman all in white laughed at her.

This refers to El, Eg, and Ny's Tairen adventures in TDR. Braid-woman is Liandrin, White-clad-woman is Lanfear.

From The Shadow Rising

[TSR: 28, To the Tower of Ghenjei, 320-1]

Rand stood amid swirling stormwinds, laughing wildly, even madly, arms upraised, and on the winds rode [dragons].

Not fulfilled, unless this is some sort of reference to Rhuidean. The Seanchan raken and to'raken are both Dragonesque animals.

hidden eyes watched Rand, and there was no telling whether he knew it

This is possibly general--all the people watching Rand, e.g. Forsaken, Wise Ones, AS, etc. or it may be something more specific that we do not know about.

Nynaeve and Elayne stalking cautiously through a demented landscape of twisted, shadowed buildings, hunting some dangerous beast

This refers to El and Ny going to Tanchico to hunt down the BA. Compare this description to the way Tanchico looks to Eg in T'A'R.

Mat, standing where a road forked ahead of him. He flipped a coin, started down one branch, and suddenly was wearing a wide-brimmed hat and walking with a staff bearing a short sword blade.

Fulfilled--Mat flipped a coin at the Portal Stone, to get to Rhuidean, which led to him getting the hat and ashanderei.

Egwene and a woman with long white hair were staring at him in surprise while behind them the White Tower crumbled stone by stone.

The woman is Amys. This bit is probably not prophetic, but a chance meeting in T'A'R (thus the surprised look). The crumbling of the Tower has been fulfilled, at least partly--it is broken, but will it be destroyed even further?

[TSR: 53, The Price of a Departure, 612]

Egwene stood among a crowd of women, fear in her eyes; slowly the women knelt around her. Nynaeve was one of them, and he believed he saw Elayne's red-gold hair.

This has been fulfilled; Eg has become Amyrlin of the Salidar AS.

That window faded and was replaced. Mat stood naked and bound, snarling; an odd spear with a black shaft had been thrust across his back behind his elbows, and a silver medallion, a foxhead, hung on his chest.

Unknown. This may be the incident in Finnland that got him hung, or maybe something yet to come.

Mat vanished, and it was Rand. Perrin thought it was Rand. He wore rags and a rough cloak, and a bandage covered his eyes.

Not fulfilled. Note that this resonates with Min's viewing of a beggar's staff around Rand. The bandaged eyes are reminiscent of the bandaged eyes of the "Fisher" figure in Moridin's sha'rah game.
