Hall of Fire chats The Hobbit: Chapter 6 this weekend!
This weekend Hall of Fire returns to The Hobbit as we examine the events of Chapter 6: Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire.
Having escaped both Gollum and the goblins, Bilbo finds himself lost in the vastness of Middle-Earth. More good fortune sees him soon re-united with his friends. Yet, as he describes his encounter with Gollum and all that happened after, he seems disinclined to reveal his new prize.
Considering what Bilbo does and says in this chapter, is this the Ring already starting its work? Or is it merely a Hobbit’s nature to be secretive? And what exactly might have Gandalf guessed or thought?
Join us this Saturday June 11 at 6pm EDT in #thehalloffire on our IRC server (irc.theonering.net) when we’ll discuss all these questions, plus the nature of wargs, eagles and much, much more.
