  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. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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? 😅
  8. As a fan of both fantasy worlds, my money is on House of The Dragon. But who knows maybe The Rings of Power will surprise me. I definitely think it has more potential than most people are giving it credit for.
