Jonathan, Michael, and Dan reach the 2nd age of Middle-earth, and with it are compelled to bring up The Rings of Power–and, particularly, how they couldn’t even get right the perfectly clear reason Tolkien gave for the Númenorean downfall!
Join us in our extended episode where we discuss why Elwing chose to be immortal “because of Luthien”, if Tolkien made parallels between the story of Earendil/Elwing and the tale of Aldarion and Erendis (from Unfinished Tales), and what’s up with Maedhros yeeting himself into a chasm of fire?!
