Ahead of this Friday's new episode of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Prime Video has shared some promo stills to give viewers a better idea of what to expect.
It looks like "Partings" is going to jump around between all four major plotlines, as we catch up with Elrond and Durin's visit to King Gil-Galad, the Harfoot migration (watch out for Wargs), Galadriel training soldiers in Númenor, and the Adar's siege of Bronwyn's people in the old watchtower.
The most intriguing image features Theo showing Arondir the mysterious Morgul(?) blade Adar is so intent on getting hold of, which suggests that the lad may have found a way to resist the weapon's evil influence.
Check out the stills at the links below, and be sure to share your thoughts on the first four episodes of The Rings of Power in the comments section.
Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.
Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power stars Morfydd Clark, Benjamin Walker, Charles Edwards, Charlie Vickers, Markella Kavenagh, Nazanin Boniadi, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Tyroe Muhafidin, Maxim Baldry, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Owain Arthur, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Leon Wadham, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani.
