What better thing to add to your Christmas evening than a dose of Lord of the Rings? I said I’d do this everyday. Today is just another day.
Aragorn will guide the four hobbits, and plans to make for a hilltop about halfway between Bree and Rivendell. They will have a good view of their surroundings from there, and if Gandalf follows, he will know to make for that point. When asked about Gandalf, Aragorn replies that he last saw him in May, while Aragorn was guarding the boundaries of the Shire. Gandalf told him to expect Frodo to be leaving Bag End by the end of September, but went away on business of his own, as did Aragorn. Upon his return, Aragorn learned that Frodo had left Bag End, but heard no more. He is worried about Gandalf.
Pippin, meanwhile, is extremely tired, and worried as well, about Merry.
-Weathertop: A large hill, once the site of a great tower. Are we going there? Oh, we’re totally going there.
-Sarn Ford: Ford on the Brandywine River. Aragorn was here the last time he saw Gandalf.
So, to keep track, Aragorn and Gandalf last met on May 1st. At this time, Frodo had already made up his mind to leave on his birthday, September 22nd, and Aragorn expected Gandalf to accompany him. It is very unlike Gandalf to be away without leaving word of his whereabouts or sending messages. This is what worries Aragorn. Gandalf is usually more on top of things.
Aragorn believes, of course, that Gandalf’s disappearance has something to do with Sauron. We know differently. That is, if you know already what’s happened. If you don’t, you’ll find out!
Let’s just say that a certain Sith Lord kidnapped him. Let’s call him…Darth Tyranus.
