It’s Friday and that means that the newest episode for ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ has premiered on Amazon Prime Video. The first two episodes of the fantasy series did splendid work in laying a strong foundation for the things to come and introduced us to almost all the major characters. Meanwhile, the latest episode, titled ‘Adar’, took the story forward in a riveting fashion and was a perfect mix of action and drama.

The latest episode took viewers to the magical kingdom of Numenor and made everyone wish that they lived there. As the episode progressed, we got to see that Arondir has indeed been taken by the Orcs and he was not the only one that has been captured. Most of his friends have been captured as well and they are being forced to make a tunnel for the Orcs that would lead them to some of the most important parts of Middle Earth. On the other hand, Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) and Halbrand have been taken as “guests” at Numenor, but Miriel, the queen of Numenor, knows that the arrival of an Elf means danger for the kingdom and possibly, Middle Earth.

The episode also introduced us to some new characters like Elendil and Isildur. Both characters play an important role in JRR Tolkien’s saga and it would be amazing to see how their stories move forward. Fans were in awe of the latest episode and praised the show for great action and perfectly stitched dramatic sequences. One of the fans wrote, “Loved. Loved. Loved. Best yet. Some scenes made me weep. "We wait for you," especially. Some questions were answered. Numenor was awesome, especially Elendil.” Another fan noted, “Much better episode than the first two for having so many lore tributes. Arondir is awesome.”
