Episode 90: Acute Depression of the Arm

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 10, The Black Gate Opens

In this chapter the army spends a lot of time getting to a battle…and then not much time on the battle.

Merry is left behind!

We were wrong last week about miles. Which is just typical us.

As the army retraces Frodo and Sam’s steps, how much have we forgotten from The Two Towers?

And Hobbits, man. They rock.

Episode 89: Does Gandalf Yolo?

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 9, The Last Debate

It’s a chapter of standing around a talking in two different parts!

The Fellowship is reunited!…mostly.

Caitlin still doesn’t understand miles?

How far is it from Minas Tirith to the Black Gate? I have a feeling Twitter will let us know.

And Hobbits, man. They rock.

Episode 88: Only Little Murder

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 8, The Houses of Healing

Some people are healthy, and some are not. We will point out each one just in case you are confused.

We meet Tolkein’s self-insert, self-burn.

Also another woman! That we had forgotten about. Whoa.

Caitlin has her most egregious forgetting of a name to date.

And Hobbits, man. They rock.

Episode 87: Ultimate Evil Trilo

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 7, The Pyre of Denethor.

Our favourite boy does just a *little* murder, and maybe a bit of treason.

Feanor, thousands of years later, still causing problems for everyone.

Murder-Suicide always seems like the best plan, right?

We still don’t understand how the afterlife works in MiddeEarth. Presumably, we never will.

Dernhelm is a girl? What?

Who killed the Witchking? Why was there a prophesy about that?

And, most importantly, Gimli has his axe.
