In the final frame of this stunning episode, Galadriel is enveloped in smoke and the village she just saved is devastated by fire and brimstone. Luckily, the history books confirm that she survives this, because who else is supposed to be yelling at Frodo while standing over a water feature in The Fellowship of the Ring? As for the locals? There’s a good chance that recent events will see Orcs like never before thanks to a shift in the atmosphere.
To quote Boromir from The Fellowship of the Ring on the local privileges of Mordor: “It is a barren wasteland riddled with fire, ash and dust, the very air you breathe is poisonous smoke.” In other words, this land of darkness and desolation would be the perfect place for orcs to thrive, where the sunlight doesn’t touch, which is exactly what Adar was aiming for. The only question is how Galadriel and the rest of our heroes will make it out of this new and still erupting land alive.
Can we see more victims, or, even worse, more converts to the path of Adar? And wouldn’t the damage affect the dwarfs’ ongoing work of mining the earth that had just been rudely awakened in the worst possible way? Find out when The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power returns next week.
