We delve into the first half of Chapter 18, “Of the Ruin of Beleriand and Fall of Fingolfin”, taking a long look at this valiant elf’s hopeless assault on Morgoth–an elf who ACTUALLY HAS A TEMPEST IN HIM, and not the dust devil in The Rings of Power’s Galadriel. Join us as we look at things like:

  • Tolkien Gives us the end of the story at the beginning
  • Fingolfin’s “Fire”
  • Why are the eagles late?
  • Morgoth is not unscathed–he’s scarred and limping!
