Dean and Alex share some Rings of Power updates: a global fan event in movie theaters which we’ll be attending; a change in the episode release lineup (allowing some to see the premiere a day earlier than originally thought!), and the release of the Rings of Power soundtrack. We talk about an article from Total Film’s August 2022 issue: changes in the depiction of Dwarves from what we’ve seen onscreen before; the scale of the show and a focus on smaller moments and character development; and finally, a discussion of whether Ian McKellan might ever return as Gandalf—and who the Stranger might be.  

We continue our lore series (at 22:17) by leaving Numenor for an episode to peek back at Middle-Earth and see what Sauron has been up to. We see the creation of the Rings of Power, Suaron’s betrayal in creating the One Ring, and his open warfare on Elves and Dwarves—including the destruction of Eregion and Moria and the slaying of Celebrimbor, Feanor’s grandson. Find us on social media!
