So, heads are flying everywhere, and people are noticing guys that they used to know. Between that, and the Nazgûl circling in the mist above the city, things are looking pretty bleak. Morale is low.
We flip back up to the citadel, where Denethor sits grimly over a supposedly dying Faramir. Pippin is standing by, but has absolutely no idea how to help. He suggests that Gandalf could perhaps provide comfort, but Denethor doesn’t like that at all.
I have a very special announcement to mention today:
IT’S FRODO AND BILBO’S BIRTHDAY!
Yep, September 22nd: the day that those two dudes were born. Day of the long-expected eleventy-first birthday party. Nearly the very day that Lord of the Rings begins. Let’s celebrate the two hobbits who began all this craziness.
One other thing has my attention today, and that’s the strange connection between Lord of the Rings and Breaking Bad.
What? Those two things? How?
If you’ve been following the ridiculously intense meth-cooking drama, you’ll know that the series is coming to an end. Walter White is at the end of his wits, and how the heck does it all tie together in the end? We’ve got one more week to find out.
However, a single act caught my eye during tonight’s penultimate episode: Walt, not being able to wear his wedding ring anymore, ties a string on it and places it around his neck. (This can’t possibly be some horrible spoiler. He has cancer. He’s getting thinner.) So, with the ring around his neck, there’s only one thing he can possibly do to save the world and redeem himself…
TAKE THE RING DEEP INTO THE CRACKS OF DOOM IN THE LAND OF MORDOR, MR. WHITE. THERE IT WAS MADE, AND ONLY THERE CAN IT BE UNMADE.
We’ll see how this turns out. Stay tuned.
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
Seriously. Check back in a week for Breaking Bad’s end of all things.
No one dies today.
