Rings of power episode 6 reddit leaked spoilers – trailer Episode 7
Remember I said last week that it feels like we’re reaching an emotional turning point in The Ring of Thrones, where in true Lord of the Rings style our heroes have been pushed to the limit, there’s a lot to look forward to hope? Hmm…about that.
The final installment of Ring of Power is about forging our heroes in the crucible of trauma and challenging them to emerge stronger from the other side. This week’s ominous title “Udûn” – well, if you mean hell in your Sindarin, and is the elven name for a little land of shadows – is about telling our heroes they’re like in a furnace Forged as damn loves it, but sometimes things get really bad for them.
Sorry, Ring of Power folks! You’re in the Lord of the Rings prequels and things go wrong for thousands of years before they get better. Not all of you are named Tolkien characters! shooting. Big deal.
Much of The Ring of Power revolves around the slow wait for the inevitable conflict, as Galadriel desperately gathers Númenor’s allies to fight the growing evil in the South. “Udûn” is finally about to realize this inevitability. It’s a series of great moves, the greatest the show has done so far.
For the most part, it’s The Lord of the Rings. It’s a bit like Helm’s Deep in The Ring of Power, as Adar’s forces – now aided by humans who have desperately abandoned their fellow Southlanders – prepare to attack the remaining refugees in Bronwyn, Arondir, and East Iris.
But in a twist closer to the ring, Arondir steered Ostirith’s watchtower down, knocking out part of Adar’s assembled army, while the fugitives sneaked back to defend their village instead of An unknown elf watchtower. Like watching the Rohans face off against the Urukhai, it’s a battle of unknown soldiers defending their homeland against an overwhelming, well-armed enemy threat — and for the most part successful.
The villagers used their inn as a hub for the incapable of fighting and a rallying point for the volunteer soldiers who fought alongside Bronwyn and Alondir, who made a heroic effort, and the little men of Middle-earth confronted them and overcome it.
Then everything went to hell. With the battle seemingly over, Alondir and the surviving villagers are horrified to discover that they are battling not only the orcs, but almost exclusively their southerners – while Adar and his half-orcs have been in hiding , with a devastating salvo of arrows that nearly wiped out most of the standing fighters before they reached the scene.
Even Bronwyn was hit several times and required horrific and drastic surgery as Alondir and Theo took the survivors to the hotel, all but awaiting the inevitable carnage. When Adar arrives and people start dying, things don’t go fast: the scene becomes slow and tense when Adar demands that Arondir’s hidden mysterious dark blade threatens to kill more and more villagers until it’s in his hands.
It’s Bronwyn’s threat — still strong due to our ignorance of his fate as a series original character — that makes Theo cringe, and even though Adal gets what he wants, he’s still in a mean-spirited way. The cruelty of the man called for the slaughter of his orcs, and the rest.
