Théoden gives Gandalf a whole bunch of titles, honoring him for being awesome and saving the collective behinds of Rohan. Gandalf thanks Théoden, and throws his grey robes off, revealing his new white ensemble. People gasp.

Hey, look! We haven’t shown that Gandalf is now Gandalf the White in Rohan yet! Funny how we didn’t bring that up. Now he can be all inspiring and stuff. I guess it’s also impressive that this wizard, once thought to be “the Grey” and slightly weaker, is now “the White”. All that power! Yay for power and purity and things like that.
