Tomorrow's (or tonight's, depending on your timezone) penultimate season 1 episode of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power promises to be an eventful one after the cataclysmic conclusion to last week's hour, and Prime Video has now released a new promo for "The Eye."
This teaser makes it very clear that "Mordor will rise; heroes will fall," so we should probably expect to lose at least one major character before the end of the episode. Quite a few of the main players are wearing some pretty impenetrable plot armor, of course, but the likes of Arondir, Bronwyn, Halbrand, and Nori are all fair game.
Will we finally meet Sauron? The title of the episode would seem to suggest as much, but we wouldn't be at all surprised if that big reveal was saved for the finale.
Have a look at the promo below, and let us know how you think these final two episodes are going to play out.
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, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Leon Wadham, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani.
