The Middle Earth saga by JRR Tolkien is filled with extraordinary characters and Gandalf the Wizard is one of them. Although the wizard plays a prominent part in the Third age of the Middle Earth, that doesn’t mean that the makers of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ can’t give him a subtle tribute. In the latest episode of the fantasy series, we saw the Harfoots continuing their journey. In the beginning, it was just the family, but the Stranger has now joined them and is helping them.

While starting their journey, Poppy starts singing a song so that time passes quickly. She starts singing a song about a Harfoot trying to complete a journey and how difficult it can be for them. However, one of the lines in the song sounded really familiar and put a smile on everybody’s face while it made some people emotional. Poppy sings that her legs are too short and the way is too long and the only comfort she has in the journey is this “song”. In the next line, she requests the lands to “guide” her in this journey that’s becoming difficult with each passing moment.

The next line reads, “At last comes their answer. Through cold and through frost, That not all who wonder or wander are lost. No matter the sorrow, No matter the cost, That not all who wonder or wander are lost.”

These lines took everyone back into the lore and they instantly realized that the line “Not all who wander are lost” was said by Gandalf the Wizard in the book ‘Fellowship of the Ring’. As soon as that line made its way to the episode, real fans of ‘LOTR’ felt really emotional and shared their opinions on social media. One of the fans wrote, “Not all who wonder or wander are lost...’ Had to pause after that opening cos I was getting emotional.” Another fan tweeted, “Not all who wonder or wander are lost…. *sobs quietly in awe of the magic of this show*." Another fan wrote, "“Not all who wonder or wander are lost" along with a crying emoji.
