    What did you think of the teaser? Did it increase your hype level (wherever it may have been prior)? Favorite/least favorite moment?
  • @princelexvlogs
    Galadriel: "But they were all of them deceived for another WIG was made."
  • @countpicula
    Elves: “WAIT!? Who’s there!” Sauron: [puts on a wig] Elves: “huh, must have been the wind…”
  • dom moneghan towards halbrand: do you wear wigs? have you worn wigs? when will you wear wigs?
  • @Halafas
    I don't think they are "correcting" anything in regards to Galadriel. This is just the continuation of her arc.

    "Galadriel's pretty crazy behavior in season 1 ..." - Understatement of the day
  • @KansasCitian
    I just hope they can do a much better job of capturing the scale necessary to make the events of the show actually feel as important as their characters treat them. Last season's big world ending battle ultimately involved one small village of like 100 people.

    Annatar arrives to teach Celebrimbor more about alloys...
  • "But they were all of them deceived for another WIG was made. For in the lands of Modor Sauron crafted his master WIG. One WIG to fool them all, one WIG to blind them, one WIG to fool them twice and in the Darkness bind them." JRRT

    The tied up person with the sea monster could be Numenor starting to make human sacrifices (or a vision of the future of Numenor making human sacrifices).
  • I'm looking forward to Elsa singing Let It Go for the orcs 😂😂
  • @Omar_listenin
    I can't help but think more effort was put into this teaser breakdown than to the writing in all of season 1
  • @StrawberrySoaps
    Something ironic: I watch the show and thought it was pretty good. Then I started watching your content and learned more about the lore and completely reversed on the show. Unless I hear there are major improvements, I probably won’t be watching this season.

    Galadriel: Avengers, ASSEMBLE!

    Re: the Balrog. I can see it being used as a way of killing Durin 3rd: Having his ring corrupt him and leading him to aggressively mine mithril. But being in the deeper chambers when it's discovered and dying as a consequence. My guess is that he and those with him will seal themselves off from the rest of Khazadum to save it from the Balrog, (creating the sealed chamber referenced in LOTR) but as a consequence it's existence won't be known by the wider population and it will go back into hibernation until it's rediscovered in the 3rd age.

    Remember when galadriel jumped off a boat near valinor and swam back to numenor only to find sauron on the ocean, that was so cool
