Time to say goodbye to…pots and pans.
When Sam realizes that it’s up to him to get Frodo moving, he does so begrudgingly. Frodo doesn’t have much energy left. He can hardly get up because the weight of the ring is dragging him down. Sam comes up with the idea to ditch their belongings. He has, of course, formed personal connections with everything he’s been lugging around. The pots and the pans are the worst to leave behind.
Yeah, Sam has close and intimate connections to kitchen equipment. I’m just going to leave it at that.
Oh, and Sam vainly tries to help Frodo carry the ring. That backfires horribly as Frodo nearly gets violent. Don’t do that. Don’t try and take the ring from Frodo. That connection Sam had with the pots and pans? Times like a million.
No one dies today.
