HavenSpy Strider compiled this amazing overview of spoilers from EA’s Return of the King game. And although a game is not a movie – and there could be some variation in the film – these make very interesting reading indeed! This first lot is just for Aragorn and Frodo, expect more soon!

As Gimli:

1. Saruman’s Death

Saruman does his talk with Theoden/Company. Then Theoden says something to Wormtongue and Saruman says to Worm that he killed Theodred by putting poison in his food.

Saruman:”And you always do exactly as I say, don’t you Worm?”
Worm: “Nooooooo!”

Then we see Saruman fall of of Orthanc and die.

2. The Visit of Elrond In Dunharrow, before they go to the Paths of the Dead, Elrond talks to Aragorn.

Elrond: “Your Path does not lie with the others, Aragorn. The man who wields the power of Isildur’s sword can summon an army more deadly than anything that walks the earth…every path you have trod, through wilderness, through war, has led you to this road.”
Aragorn: “So be it, I will visit these Paths of the Dead”

3. Encounter with the King of the Dead After fighting many shades (floating, blue, and transparent warriors, and some skeletons), Aragorn has this conversation with the King of the Dead…

King: “Who enters my domain???”
Aragorn: “One who would hold you to your oath”
King: “The Dead do not suffer the living to pass!” (more shades appear and fight)
Aragorn: “You will suffer me!”
King: “Brave fool! Let the abyss take you!” (many skeletons appear)
Aragorn: “I will defeat your warriors, then come for you!” (fight with the skeletons)
Aragorn: “I summon you to fulfill your oath!”
King: None but the King of Gondor may command me!
Aragorn: Then I command you, for I am Isildur’s heir.

Afterwards, the company takes a shortcut through the White Mountains to the Corsairs of Umbar. They capture their ships and with the help of the Dead, defeat the orcs at the Minas Tirith docks.

At the gates of Mordor, Gimli fights the Mouth of Sauron (prob. just a game adaption 🙂 And that is it for Gimli.

As Frodo:

Gollum: “Nassty Hobbittsess. Wicked, tricksey, false. She is hungry, perhaps they could appease her appetite.”
Sam: “Frodo! I heard it from his own mouth…he means to murder us!
Gollum: “Never! Smeagol wouldn’t hurt a fly! He’s a fat, horrid Hobbit, who hates Smeagol, who makes up nasssty lies.”
Sam: “You miserable little maggot! I’m going to stove your head in!”
Frodo: “Leave him alone! If you scare him off, we are lost.”
Sam: “You don’t see it, he’s leading us into a trap! Gandalf would not have chosen this way.”
Frodo: “Gandalf is gone, come, Smeagol, show us the way.

Later on the stairs of Cirith Ungol …

Gollum: “Clever Hobbitses to climb so high. Very clever Hobbitses. Only a few more stairs to go before we reach the top”
Sam: (to Gollum) “What are we up to? Sneaking off, are we?”
Gollum: “Sneaking? Fat Hobbit is always so polite. Smeagol shows them secret ways that nobody else could find and they say “sneak”, “Sneak!” Very nice friends, oh yes, my precious, very nice.”
Sam: “Alright, alright. You startled me was all. What were you doing?”
Gollum: “Sneaking”

Later on…

Sam: “Mr. Frodo?”
Frodo: “I’m alright.” Sam: You are not alright! You’re exausted! It’s that Gollum, it’s this place, it’s that thing around your neck. Let me help you with it…I could carry it for awhile.”
Frodo: “Get away from me!”
Sam: “I don’t want to keep it,…I just want to help!”
Gollum: “See! See! He wants it for himself!
Frodo: “No…It’s you, Sam. You can’t help me anymore. I’m sorry, Sam. Go home.
Sam: “But…Gollum’s a liar…he’s poisened you against me.
Frodo: “Go home!” Sam leaves the screen while Frodo and Gollum continue on.

Later Frodo enters Shelob’s lair.

Frodo: “Smeagol? What was that? Smeagol? Sees Sheolob
Frodo: “Sam! Sam!” runs out of the lair Shelob ambushes him, and stings him.

Sam comes to the rescue and beats Shelob. Two orcs take Frodo and Sam promises to rescue him. I did notice the watchers, but nothing special happened. Sam goes to the tower and finds the two orcs fighting (forgot their names), kills them and resues Frodo. Asks again if he can help with the ring, and is refused.

At Mount Doom…

Sam: “Frodo! Destroy it, now, do it! Throw it in the fire!”
Frodo: “I have made my choice. I will not destroy it…the Ring is mine.
Gollum: “Precious! My Precious! Filthy Baggins!”
Frodo: “Nooooo!”

Gollum fights Sam, Frodo puts on the ring, fights with Gollum, Gollum takes the ring and falls into the Crack of Doom.

Frodo: “Sam! It’s gone…it is done.”
Sam: “Yes, Mr. Frodo. It’s over now.”
Frodo: “I’m glad to be here with you Samwise Gamgee…here at the end of all things.”

Then two eagles fly to them, and that is the end.

More to come from Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and Eowyn!
