It shouldn’t be surprising to anyone that Faramir wants to learn more about Boromir’s death. Unfortunately, there isn’t much more for Frodo to say. He suggests that possibly it all was truly a vision, made by Sauron. Faramir denies this. Sauron’s magic brings about fear, terror, and hatred. Seeing Boromir’s body brought Faramir only sadness.
In addition, the Horn of Gondor washed ashore in two pieces, and was found by two men in real life. Boromir would not have dropped the horn if he were alive to keep it. Something bad clearly happened.
Faramir also seems a little preoccupied with the dastardly murder of Boromir. Okay, um…so he’s dead, in a world with mischievous orcs running wild, and we’re worried that he was killed maliciously? Yeah, that would happen, but it’s not like you’re going to bring the orc who killed him to trial.
Whatever, Faramir also waxes dramatically about all the questions he would have asked about his intentions and how he managed to travel to Lothlórien. Don’t forget, men hadn’t really ever gone there. Ever.
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
Nevertheless, it seems that Faramir isn’t angry with Frodo for whatever reason. He’s just sad. And sad is okay. Feelings are good, they mean you’re human.
FARAMIR ISN’T A ROBOT, YOU GUYS!
No one dies today.
