After a long wait of four episodes, we finally got our first look at Adar and it was exactly how we thought it would be. In Episode 3 of 'The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power', we found out that the pack of Orcs was being led by someone called Adar and they were calling him “father”. At the end of the previous episode, we saw that Arondir and one of his friends tried to get away from the captivity of the Orcs, but failed to do so. The escape plan ended with Arondir's (Ismael Cruz Cordova) friend getting killed by multiple arrows. As they brought Arondir back to their camp, one of the orcs said that he should be presented to Adar.

In the latest episode, we finally got to Adar for the first time and it seems that he is undoubtedly a father figure to the orcs. He sees one of his orcs in great distress because the creature is about to lose its life. Before it could feel any pain, Adar stabbed the orc and killed it himself. The body was taken out while Adar stayed inside and had a conversation with Arondir. Adar asked about elf/human where he was born in the elven language and kept the conversation going. Arondir asked Adar why Orcs call him “father”, to which, Adar replies, “You have been fed many lies. Some runs so deep that even the rocks and roots now believe them.”

Adar made a chilling threat to Arondir and said to untangle all these lies, a new world has to be created and that’s something that only Gods can do and he’s not yet a god. The evil villain was in no mood to play games and told Arondir to go to the men in the old watchtower and deliver a message. He lets Arondir go.

Some of the fans noted that Adar is a psycho villain while others believed that this is how a new character is introduced. One of the fans wrote, “Now that is how you introduce a villain. The mystery continues with Adar!” Another fan wrote, “Adar… already feeling a vibe of that kind of Villain you cannot predict… the one is calm and smiling in one sec and 0.1sec later cut your eye off. Slightly psycho.”

I feel like we're being given handfuls of important clues, but they're holding back the ones that will really connect the dots & de-mystify the mystery. or they're daring us to find them. and that's just...*chef's kiss*” wrote another fan.
