It’s hard to believe, but this week we finish “Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age”–the last chapter of The Silmarillion!

We talk about the the truth and beauty of Middle-earth (and how we’re not connected to it), how Peter Jackson portrayed the battle between Gil-Galad, Elendil, and Sauron poorly, and Saruman’s mysterious visit to the east–after which he took up residence in Orthanc and started his evil turn.

Then, join us in our extended episode (https://theonering.com/members) where we discuss if Isildur just took the glory over Elendil and Gil-Galad when they defeated Sauron, why Tolkien mentioned Frodo’s destruction of the differently in The Silmarillion, and whether Sauron should’ve bribed the Dwarves with gold (since the Rings of Power didn’t sway them a bit).
