  1. Source Maybe I'm not as big of a fan of Lord of the rings as I thought. The question of Mithril and how the Elves were able to gain access to it never entered my mind. I always just accepted it as really strong armor and a really cool ore.
  2. Okay so I have a new theory what if Sauron is actually Lord Cekebrimbor(the elven smith Elrond is working with) in disguise. I won't get into how closely that relates to the books. But I think that would actually be a pretty awesome plot twist. I think its interesting how much time they are devoting to Elendil and his children, Isildur and Earien. Isildur not wanting to follow in the path that his father is pushing him towards is understandable. But compared to all of the things they could be showing in this series, it feels in consequential to even introduce this trivial storyline. I think I would have preferred seeing an Isildur that was constantly at his father's side doing whatever was asked of him. They could have saved money by not filming those additional sailing scenes. Or scenes where Isildur is arguing with his father. In the end, those scenes are pretty inconsequential. Most of us know what happens with Isildur and his father. When I think of their names, I think of epic battles, courage, leadership etc. I don't think of petty arguments or some kind of father son squabble about his future. For the past two episodes Galadriel seems to be running in circles in Numeanor. The city is absolutely gorgeous. But she stirs up the hornets nest wherever she goes. She is far older and more experienced than everyone in that city. I feel like they made her too human. I don't like the plotline of her roaming about the kingdom with an escort or being locked up in a cell. I loved that scene where she finally decides to toss four guards into the prison cell by herself with no weapon. I like the idea of it but they should have found some smoother way to do it. It should have been more enchanting more mystical, more effortless. From there she becomes a ninja breaking into the kings tower through a window😅. Again, I love the idea of Galadriel deciding to storm the tower single handedly but I'm just not with the execution. The palantir scene was a good plot device. The kings daughter was obviously afraid of something and she has a decent reason. She's had some vision about the fall of Numeanor and is trying to prevent it. I feel like there should have been a little more to it though. Galadriel just touching it once and seeing the waters rush in was too quick. After the vision, she should have been able to speak from wisdom, and given the queen some direction based on all of her knowledge over thousands of years. Instead she basically gives a decent but generic line about acting in faith and not fear. Elrong and Durin have a good moment in this episode. Elrond choosing to make an oath to Durin on the mountain was interesting. I also loved how they introduced mithril and spoke of it like a trade good that could be mined and exploited to increase the prosperity of the dwarven people. Of course there were no details of how this particular ore could increase their prosperity but as person that loves to hear about economics and trade side of kingdom building I still enjoyed it. Now of course at some point, that oath that Durin got Elrond to swear to, has to come back to haunt Elrond at some point. Looking at the preview, it seems like Lord Celebrimbor will accidentally discover the piece of Mithril that Durin gave to Elrond. This immediately seemed like a mistake when Durin told Elrond to keep it. If they were trying to keep it a secret for the time being, then they should keep all of it within the mountain until they are ready to announce it. Durin's wife Disa lying to Elrond about his whereabouts were definitely understandable. I didn't mind at all. She's being loyal to her husband so I'm glad they squashed that deception part pretty quick. I'm actually surprised that they decided to even make this whole Mithril plotline important at all. Last but not least, meteor man is completely missing in this episode! I was looking forward to seeing that storyline advance but I understand because it seems like the showrunners knew that they needed to get Galadriel moving. So by giving her more scenes, hopefully by the end of episode 5 Galadriel and the people of Numeanor will be setting sail. I'm so ready for the reveal that meteor man is Gandalf. I expect that we won't know until episode 8 or 9 so we have at least another 2-3 week wait by my estimation.
  3. It seems like the lands that the Elves have been overseeing, belonged to humans that sided with Morgoth a thousand years ago. I think the blade is likely a weapon that was left over from the great wars during those times. Why it appears to drink Theo's blood is beyond me though. It seems obvious that its an evil weapon. No doubt, it will corrupt Theo similar to how the ring slowly corrupted Gollum, Bilbo and Frodo.
  4. Since Galadriel was on a ship that was headed west to the undying lands, I suspect that Galadriel and Halbrand have washed up on the shores of Numenor which is supposed to be the most powerful men of the age if I remember correctly. They should have an interesting perspective on elves.
  5. In episode 2 we are told that Theo's father left him and his mother and he doesn't seem to know why or who his father was. It's also very obvious at this point that Arondir and Bronwyn are in love. Perhaps they came to some kind of agreement to keep their distance from each other, but its very possible that Arondir is Theo's father. The question is how long will it take Theo to discover this for himself? And honestly why keep this secret from the kid? Maybe its not true. But this theory makes a lot of sense given the limited information we have so far.
  6. It seems extremely likely that the man that was hurtling through the sky like a comet and crash landed right next to the Harfoots is none other than Mithrandir aka Gandalf. Now it could be possible that he's another being similar to Gandalf. But I highly doubt it. The fact that he lands among the Harfoots seems to be a strong indication.
  7. Episode 2 seemed to be a bit meandering. Instead of speeding things up it seemed to slow the pace down even more. I liked them showing the cultural traditions of the dwarves. Elrond engaging in a rock breaking contest with Duren was cool. Its a game that I can easily imagine the dwarves actually having. However, Duren's anger at Elrond was a little over the top. It seems like Duren was angry at Elrond because he hasn't visited him in 20 years. I agree that its a long time but couldn't Duren have gone to visit Elrond? Also its cool that they've seemingly added the archon stone into this story but it felt like a plot point that could have been reintroduced later. I was much more interested in learning more about the fate of Ardonis and the orcs that were tunneling underground attacking human villages. Also, Galadriel's lost at sea segment was entirely too long. She had to climb up onto a raft 3 different times this episode. It began to felt a bit like the writers said okay for episode 2 Galadriel is going to be stranded at sea the entire time how can we make that remotely interesting. I feel like the episode would have worked a lot better if she was pulled out of the water by the humans. Lighting strikes she falls into the water unconscious and the human Halbrand dives in to save her. So we still get a scene where they establish trust and then around the middle of the episode they wake up starving and thirsty but arrive at a city. This would speed things along much better and would have made her journey more interesting. The pacing is all wrong for Galadriel is episode 2. Also, its looking more and more like the tall stranger found by the halfling is Mithrandir/Gandalf. Or perhaps its another one of the lesser known Maiar either way. We can already see them speaking to animals, making trees sway and sprout, definitely someone really powerful. And the timing of his arrival just screams Gandalf/ helper of middle earth. I'm looking forward to his grand reveal.
  8. This show is gorgeous. Episode 1 was all set up. There was a little bit of action but not much. I think that's all for the better. I've read the lord of the rings books and the simarillion(its been awhile so I don't remember much of the simarillion) and even I'm still trying to get myself oriented in this show. Galadriel is obviously set up to be the main protagonist in this while Elrond seems to be in more of a supporting/ subserviant role. It appears that Elrond is still trying to find his voice in this part of the story. I love the depiction of the Undying lands! Galadriel was about to passover but at the last second decided to stay that was cool. We all knew she had to stay. I loved the ceremonial garb and the coordinated disarmament of the elf warriors. I hope The Rings of Power continues to emphasize the worldbuilding. The elf Ardonis is obviously in love with a human and seems likely to have the first encounter with Sauron or whatever other evil thing could be at work. Last but not least, was that Gandalf that was hurtling through the sky like a comet and landed among the halflings??? I have a strong feeling it will end up being him. Oh and did I mention this show is gorgeous? 😅
