Today was a long day. Tomorrow will be a long day. But things are good. Let’s talk about Lord of the Rings.
To the Houses of Healing! Gandalf, Aragorn, Éomer, and Imrahil approach, and are greeted by Pippin. They enter, and Aragorn observes the sick. He understands that there is little time to save them. He asks Ioreth about the stores of healing herbs, and she kind of talks around the subject.
I can’t tell if Ioreth is really just that wrought over the mess of the battle, or if she’s too old to understand what’s going on. She just doesn’t seem right. However, this hasn’t been the type of story to openly mock someone for being addled with old age. I don’t know. She not an important character, in the end, so it doesn’t really matter that much.
I am confused, however, over the lack of Legolas and Gimli. They weren’t mentioned at all in disembarking from the ships with Aragorn. Now that he’s arrived in Minas Tirith, he’s suddenly so much of a star that he trumps the both of them. Unlike Ioreth, they are important characters, so where are they? I miss them.
In actual humorous news, Imrahil scoffs at how Pippin addresses Aragorn, because he clearly doesn’t understand how Aragorn isn’t a pompous and stuffy leader.
So Pippin calls Aragorn some funny names, and apparently Aragorn has plans to adopt some of those names into his official kingly name. Okay. Whatever.

Yeah, I don’t know.
