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.

Episode 86: Weed Wizard

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 6, The Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

Dernhelm is a girl? What?

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

And, most importantly, Gimli has his axe.

Episode 85: Second Best Horse

This week we discuss Return of the King, Book V, Chapter 5, the Ride of the Rohirrim.

A little less Ride and a little more Eavesdropping. Come and discuss with us as Merry is very observant, but misses some vital facts. Theoden gives some speeches and steals a horn. Eomer is racist, and Snowmane is the best horse ever.

Well, the best horse that wasn’t stolen by Gandalf.
