Tomorrow (or today, by the time you’re probably reading this), remember to get out and rock the vote. If you live in the US. And no, sadly, J.R.R. Tolkien is not a candidate. Would that be a good thing? I don’t even know.
Story time for Gandalf!
Seriously, you guys, you need to tell him what’s going on. That whole “being mostly dead” thing kind of put him behind the 8-ball on this one.
Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli sit down and relay their journey, highlighted by the fact that Frodo is on his own now. Gandalf knows that, but he didn’t know that Sam had joined him. This is good news! Meanwhile, Gandalf learns about Boromir’s death, which he had missed. He mentions that Merry and Pippin really were good for something, and I assume he means that Boromir “saved” himself by protecting them for as long as he could. And now, those two rascally hobbits are off to destroy Saruman!
This confuses the three hunters, and Aragorn questions if Gandalf is speaking in riddles. No, he really means what he says. The dam will burst. It will.
Also, Sauron thinks that the ring is going to Minas Tirith. Silly Sauron!
In other news, it’s already late, and I have to get up early tomorrow to do my civic duty. IT’S SO HARD THAT I HAVE TO GET UP AND LOOK PRESENTABLE WHILE I GO TO THE LOBBY OF MY BUILDING. WAAAAHHHHH.
Don’t you judge. Faramir would make a great VP.
