One of the most integral parts of JRR Tolkien’s Middle Earth saga has been the Orcs. They terrify the beings of the region and often wipe out villages to please their master. Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy did a wonderful job in making viewers realize how horrifying these creatures really are. So, ‘The Rings of Power’ had the responsibility to keep the Orcs as authentic as possible and fortunately, they have done a splendid job in showing how terrifying these Orcs are.

We get to see the creatures for the first time when Arondir (Ismael Cruz Cordova) gets captured by them. They have captured his friends as well and are now forcing them to build a tunnel or a way for the Orcs to reach important places on Middle Earth. In one of the most brutal scenes, an Orc brutally kills one of the Elves/Humans by slitting his throat in front of everyone. On the other hand, they fight the remaining members of the humans/elves tribe and kill one of the closest friends of Arondir as well.

The Orcs have already killed two major characters in the series and are already looking like a force to be reckoned with. But things got even more interesting as the episode came to an end as we are about to know who is Adar. Since the beginning of the episode, Orcs were talking about Adar and now Arondir will be presented in front of him. We saw a shadow of the character, but Amazon ended the episode before revealing who he is.
