Mat's character was on god-mode since that scene, at least in my opinion. When he was with Luca's Traveling show, and the recently freed Aes Sedai started channeling when the Seanchan army came, I was waiting for Mat to completely dominate the two Warders [Fen & Blaeric]. If Mat could channel, man, I would be awesome.

Capturing Sevanna was pure hapstance, but I grudgingly have to accept that the whole "rescue Faile" sideline wasn't insignificant. The Shaido are gone, Morgese can finally come out and appear to everyone.
"I once saw a man hanging from a cliff. The brink was crumbling beneath his fingers, and the only thing near enough to grasp was a tuft of grass, a few long blades with roots barely clinging to the rock. The only chance he had of climbing back up on the cliff. So he grabbed it. He had to know it would pull free."
