I just reported the facts. I wasn't being judgmental here.

If Dick stabs Harry to death, Tom stabs Dick to death and then balefires Dick's body, does Harry come back to life?

Nope, it only works if they're still alive; once they're dead the thread is no longer connected to the body.

We do know that she will have some youth restored to her, so it would seem logical.

She will in all probablility outlive the average Aes Sedai, since longevity is in part tied to strength in the Power. Indeed, as Terez pointed out she's already apparently experiencing a "youthening."

After the Great Lord has defeated the so called Dragon, time will end, and thus all AS will cease living too. Obvious, really, isn't it?

i remember Tuon commenting on Mat letting go of a poisonous snake. Are there any mention of snakes as omens by Seanchan?

While not finding actual omens related to snakes, I did come across the following:
Quote:

Putting on a smile took effort. “I don’t think I ever heard either one of those.” Making his voice amused required effort, too. What were the odds of her mentioning snakes giving true answers, which the Aelfinn did after a fashion, in the same breath with foxes stealing skins? He was pretty sure that the Eelfinn did. and made leather from it. But it was Old Hob that nearly made him flinch. The other was likely just ta’veren twisting at the world. She certainly knew nothing about him and the snakes or the foxes. In Shandalle, the land where Artur Hawkwing had been born, though, Old Hob. Caisen Hob, had been another name for the Dark One. The Aelfinn and the Eelfinn both surely deserved to be connected to the Dark One, yet that was hardly anything he wanted to think on when he had his own connection to the bloody foxes. And to the snakes, too? That possibility was enough to sour his stomach.
So now I'm wondering: what kind of fool goes sleeping in the open on the slopes of Shayol Ghul, just out of curiosity, to see what would happen? And then keeps it up until he gets a night with a full moon, too?
That does seem to be the way to start a tale like this, after all.

there's this:

Though she does say she had a Foretelling regarding his fox-signet-ring. So she might have had something about the snakes as well. I cna't find anything more right now though.

Verin's letter to Rand is about Mattin Stephanos situation right? Who is the representative of Amadicia? Galad or someone else?

I don't think Verin was limited to telling Rand one piece of information.

And Galad has more or less abandoned Amadicia. Not that any Seanchan nations are represented at the FoM anyway.

Amathera is in Tar Valon, so it seems she'll be in FoM, I'm guessing Beslan would be coming with Mat, that leaves Amadicia. Im kinda guessing Egwene will be left with no support after thinking everyone will follow her. Or did I forget some things?

'Thera' is in no condition to represent anyone, nor does she have the right anymore. Beslan coming with Mat is a theory, but no more than that. Certainly the timing seems to be off if Moiraine gets her way.
