Logain, Androl & timeline

The way I understood it (though I haven’t gotten that far in my current reread yet) was that Logain went back to the BT right after the Sea Folk meeting, probably because Rand was really pissing him off, you know treating him like an errand boy and fly-swatter.
So by my estimates, that gives him a good three months at the BT before the start of AMoL. Plenty of time to raise Androl to Dedicated and reestablish ties to his group.
And as for Algarin/Emarin I always thought he just went on his own. Cadsuane left, he wasn’t playing host, and he figured, well why not see if I can?

This is awful… Mona Eltahawy did not even get a reason for why she was arrested. The actions here - not to mention the posters themselves - show that bigotry is alive an well in America.
