Peter Jackson cut the one Hobbit who had the backbone to stand up to a Nazgul, the one who struck fear in the hearts of other Hobbits — but was also a serious family man!

We also look at the complete loss of Crickhollow. How did that affect the story, and more importantly, the relationships between the Hobbits?
