Scene 25 ~ The Ring of Barahir

The Two Towers Scene 25

Grima rides up to Orthanc

SARUMAN: Gandalf the White. Gandalf the Fool! Does he seek to humble me
with his newfound piety?
GRIMA: (enters the room) There were three who followed the wizard. An Elf, a Dwarf and a Man.
SARUMAN: You stink of horse. The Man......was he from Gondor?
GRIMA: No, from the North. One of the Dunedain Rangers, I thought he was. His cloth was poor. And yet he bore a strange ring Two serpents with emerald eyes..  One devouring, the other crowned with golden flowers.
SARUMAN: (flicks through pages in a book and taps his finger on one page) The Ring of Barahir. So Gandalf Greyhame thinks he has found lsildur's heir. The lost king of Gondor. He is a fool. The line was broken years ago. (he closes the book) It matters not. The world of Men shall fall. It will begin at Edoras.
The people of Edoras are leaving the city.  In the Golden Hall, Theoden puts on his gloves
THEODEN: I am ready, Gamling. Bring my horse.
Gamling nods and walks away.  Theoden speaks to him
THEODEN: This is not a defeat. (Gamling turns towards him) We will return. (Gamling nods and walks out)
(to himself)
We will return.

Scene 26 ~ A Daughter of Kings

The Two Towers Scene 26

A the people of Edoras carry away chests from the Golden Hall.  Eowyn opens up a chest, lifts out a sword and unsheathes it.  She holds it up and runs her hand down the blade. She practices swiping with it, and as she turns around her sword meets Aragorn's knife
ARAGORN: (sword and knife still held against each other) You have some skill with a blade.
EOWYN: (Swings her sword round swiftly, releasing it from Aragorn's knife and puts it away) Women of this country learned long ago: Those without swords can still die upon them. I fear neither death nor pain.
ARAGORN: What do you fear, my lady?
EOWYN: A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them. And all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.
ARAGORN:  (shakes his head) You're a daughter of kings......a shieldmaiden of Rohan. I do not think that would be your fate. (he turns and walks away)

Scene 27 ~ Exodus from Edoras

The Two Towers Scene 27

The people of Edoras are seen leaving the through the city gates led by Theoden and his guards, with Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn.  Theoden pauses to look back at Edoras, then rides off.  A long line of people can be seen weaving its way down the hillside.
Back in Orthanc Grima is wiping his mouth with a handkerchief

GRIMA: Theoden will not stay at Edoras. It's vulnerable. He knows this. He will expect an attack on the city. They will flee to Helm's Deep......the great fortress of Rohan. It is a dangerous road to take through the mountains. They will be slow. (the Edoras people are shown walking around great lakes at the side of the mountains) They will have women and children with them. (Saruman raises an eyebrow)
Saruman is seen walking into the pits of Orthanc.  He summons the head orc
SARUMAN: Send out your Warg-riders.
The orc grins, and shadows of the Wargs can be seen amongst growling and fighting

Scene 28 ~ The Forests of Ithilien

The Two Towers Scene 28

Smeagol is swimming along in a rocky stream, trying to catch a jumping fish. Sam and Frodo follow him
SAM: Hey, stinker, don't go getting too far ahead.
FRODO: Why do you do that?
SAM: What?
FRODO: Call him names. Run him down all the time.
SAM: Because. Because that's what he is, Mr. Frodo. There's naught left in him but lies and deceit. It's the Ring he wants. It's all he cares about.
FRODO: (looks cross) You have no idea what it did to him......what it's still doing to him. (he walks past Sam, then stops watching Gollum) I want to help him, Sam.
SAM: Why?
FRODO: Because I have to believe he can come back.
SAM: (walks to Frodo's back) You can't save him, Mr. Frodo.
FRODO: (turning around to face Sam) What do you know about it? Nothing! (Sam nods walks past him) I'm sorry, Sam. I don't know why I said that.
SAM: I do. (turning back round to face Frodo) It's the Ring. You can't take your eyes off it. I've seen you. You're not eating. You barely sleep. (walks right up to him) It's taken hold of you, Mr. Frodo. You have to fight it.
FRODO: (snaps back) I know what I have to do, Sam. The Ring was entrusted to me. It's my task. Mine! My own! (he walks off purposefully)
SAM: Can't you hear yourself? Don't you know who you sound like?
