18 Gan­dalf Saves The Day

The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Tow­ers

SFX - - Greatest middle-earth moments -

The Bat­tle Of Helm’s Deep has raged all night, but with the break of dawn comes Gan­dalf to the res­cue – and he’s not alone. Just when you’d for­got­ten about Eomer and his sol­diers, here they are, and the tide of the bat­tle fi­nally turns. A glo­ri­ous mo­ment, and not just for the golden sun­light that burns the Uruk- hai hordes: con­trasted with King Theo­den’s des­per­ate “Forth Eor­lin­gas!” ride to cer­tain death a few min­utes be­fore­hand, the Ro­hirrim horses gal­lop­ing down the hill into the fray is the re­turn of hope where there was none to be found.
