'The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power' Episode 3 Spoilers: Who attacked Arondir in that pit?
The premiere of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ made us realize how much we were missing Middle Earth and its adventures. The Amazon series debuted with some of the most scintillating visuals in the history of Television and introduced us to the main characters trying to restore peace in the region.
Warrior elf Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) embarked on a journey to find Sauron, but couldn’t find him. On the other hand, it seems that evil has started to set its foot again in Middle Earth in the form of orcs. Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova) went to a village named Hordern and saw that it was completely empty and raided by some monsters. However, he and Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi) found an underground tunnel that might give them an idea of what was happening.
Without thinking twice, Arondir goes inside the tunnel and soon realizes that something horrific is waiting for him on the other side. He was right in thinking so and even before he could think of taking a step back, he was attacked by someone. Who was the attacker?
‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ Episode 3: Who are Arondir’s attackers?
After getting attacked by someone, he falls down into some kind of subterranean body of water and drags himself onto the bank, where he backs himself against a wall while looking at the bubbles forming in the water in front of him. However, the bubbles didn’t cause him any problems, it was something else. As the camera, zoomed further to Arondir’s face, he is grabbed from behind and we don’t see him again for the rest of the episode.
It seems the Orcs have finally got the Silvan Elf and it was undoubtedly a giant orc who attacked him. But ‘LOTR’ has always been about heroism, so Arondir will free himself from the Orcs before running to the Elven tower to warn them about the threat.
Meanwhile, Bronwyn and Theo would also be important aspects of the story. Theo has the Black Sword and that might prove to be dangerous for a lot of people, especially Theo himself. The young kid might turn into an Orc and wreak havoc. This might force Arondir or other elven warriors to fight him.
Things are getting intense in Middle Earth and even Galadriel will resume her pursuit the Dark Lord. It’ll be interesting to see how Halbrand becomes a part of Galadriel’s journey. Will he be a friend or he’ll turn out to be an enemy? Let’s wait and watch.
