Guess who’s back? Back again. Háma’s back. Tell a friend.
Woah. WordPress totally just updated their photo uploading system. I’m gonna need a minute to deal with that.
So, Háma arrives again, this time with Wormtongue and Théoden’s sword. Wormtongue had it hidden away. Théoden takes the blade back, and scolds Wormtongue, ordering him to prepare a meal for the four guests. Wormtongue tries to whine his way out of it, and is also trying to convince Théoden that everything he’s been told just now is a lie. Yeah…that’s not going to work. In fact, Théoden wants Wormtongue to ride along with him to war. That’ll teach him!
-Herugrim: Théoden’s sword. Anything that ends with “grim” better be a weapon. Guess what, it is!
And what better punishment to hand down than to make Wormtongue go to war himself? I mean, it’s not going to happen, but I like it so much. Knowing him, he’ll escape, or weasel his way out, or something like that. Théoden wants him to prove his loyalty, much like how Éomer laid his sword at Théoden’s feet. But he did that freely. Good luck getting loyalty out of Wormtongue.
Wormtongue is even said to be looking a bit beast-like as he tries to find a way out of this. In fact, every description of him is awful and creepy. He has a long tongue, a pale face, deep eyes…the list goes on and on. This isn’t a guy you want to have a long walk on the beach with.

Oddly, “leechcraft” skates on by without the dreaded red underline of horror. I sense something fishy going on.
