Card 26 – Treebeard takes Merry and Pippin “to see the wizard”–Gandalf, that is!
Card 36 – The Exorcism–this refers to “exorcising” Theoden’s possession by Wormtongue and based on the reaction shot of Aragorn and Eowyn, it could be quite a stunning sequence.
Card 38 – Begone, Wormtongue!–Theoden literally tosses Wormtongue down the steps outside the hall.
Card 47 – Making Friends with Gimli–While Gimli is left behind during the battle, he and Eowyn strike up a friendship. This should be great fun!
Card 57 – Possession of Frodo–Faramir looks on “riveted” as Frodo struggles with the Ring’s control of him. Frodo’s expression is quite upset.
Card 78 – In Osgiliath’s Sewers (!)–Part of the blurb on the back of the card states that Faramir takes Frodo and Sam to the sewers under Osgiliath which will give them “a secret way into Mordor…The fate of all Middle-earth hangs on what happens here.”
