This is the lowdown for all you Ringers out there who don’t frequent the message boards or the chatroom. It seems that AICN’s Evil Professor Moriarty has been posting replies to you all on our very own OneRing.net board. I have also been in contact with him and he tells me that he wishes to clear the air from his notorious ‘Script Review’ on AICN a while back. Below are some of the high points of a few of his posts, for more on all this go here.
1) Arwen and Aragorn:
“EXT. TROLLSHAW FOREST – NIGHT
ANGLE ON: STRIDER hurries through the DARK FOREST, collecting FIREWOOD.
SUDDENLY! STRIDER FREEZES as a SWORD BLADE touches his neck! A WHITE HORSE steps into FG.
What’s this? A Ranger caught off-guard?
STRIDER slowly looks up. His eyes widen with RECOGNITION.”
2) Scouring of Shire:
I’d have to answer carefully and say, “I can’t address this issue at this time.” That’s not a committal in either direction on the question. I know this is a big one to most fans, but I’m sorry.
3) Lorien and Galadriel and her Mirror:
The whole deal about Galadriel and Lothlorien: Without spoiling the whole sequence, let me say that Galadriel’s Glade is indeed in Lothlorien, and that Frodo visits it while in Rivendell. That’s what I meant to imply in my initial review, and I’m confirming it again here. No mistake, no confusion.
