Surviving villagers flee the burning Tirharad. Miriel has lost her eyesight and Isildur is missing. Miriel promises Galadriel more Númenórean support. Galadriel escorts a wounded Halbrand to Lindon for Elvish medicine. Elsewhere, Nori's caravan finds their destination grove has been destroyed by the eruption of Orodruin. The stranger's attempt to mend a tree appears to fail and he leaves. The next day, the entire grove has regrown. While the Harfoots rejoice, they encounter a mysterious trio who are in search of the stranger. After a failed attempt by Nori to mislead them, the trio burns the Harfoots' caravans. Realizing the danger they set off to warn the stranger. Meanwhile, in Khazad-dûm, Elrond offers a deal for the Dwarvish mithril, but King Durin III declines, saying that the Elven Age has ended. As Elrond departs, Prince Durin witnesses mithril's ability to cure the Elven blight in a leaf. He brings Elrond back and begins to mine for the ore himself. Just as he strikes a large mithril vein, King Durin arrives. He has Elrond banished, strips Prince Durin of his royalty, and seals the mithril mine, not realizing that a Balrog has been awakened. The destroyed Southland is renamed as "Mordor". --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/tradepaperbacks/message --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rangerryan/message
