Preview and predictions for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power season 1, episode 3

The folks at Prime Video are being tight-lipped about this one, with plot details more closely guarded than some state secrets. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take a decent guess at what might be on the horizon for our friends in Middle Earth. 

  • Arondir’s captors will be Orcs, he will heroically free himself and any other captors before rushing to the Elven tower to warm them of the Orc-ish resurgence. 
  • Bronwyn will arrive at the Elven Tower and the Elves will be initially dismissive of her claims until Theo turns full Orc and Arondir, just arriving in time, will be forced to fight him. 
  • More will be revealed about the Dwarves’ plans, I suspect they are engaged in a misguided project that Elrond will need to talk them out of. 
  • We will learn more about Galadriel’s rescuer, and he will either join her quest or be an enemy to overcome.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Prime Video.
