Aww… Good effort Gimli!
Even though Gimli has been enlisted to help Gandalf find his way through Moria, Gandalf seems to be doing fine on his own. Even when he needs “help”, he realizes that he knows which is the proper way to go anyway. Aragorn comforts everyone else, saying that Gandalf is known by many to be able to find his way wherever it needs to go.

Frodo, meanwhile, is tiring as the journey gets harder. However, his senses feel heightened as a result of the stab wound he took so long ago.

I just hope he remembers that with great power comes great responsibility. And that includes the responsibility to stay away from Broadway musicals.
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
But actually, could someone turn off the dark? It’s really dark in here.
“One sign of change that he soon had noticed was that he could see more…”
