Scene 33 ~ The Evenstar

The Two Towers Scene 33

It is night time.  Aragorn sits smoking his pipe, thinking of Arwen.  He appears lying sleeping on a couch in Rivendell

ARWEN VOICEOVER: The light of the Evenstar does not wax and wane. It is mine to give to whom I will. Like my heart. Go to sleep.
ARAGORN : I am asleep. (opens his eyes to see Arwen standing over him) This is a dream.
ARWEN: Then it is a good dream. (she leans down and kisses him.  He strokes her face and she looks at him concerned and kisses him again) Sleep. (he closes his eyes and she stands and moves to look out at the gardens.)
ARAGORN: (opening his eyes) Minl pendich nin i aur hen telitha. (You told me once that this day would come.)
ARWEN: i vethed... n i onnad. Boe bedich go Frodo. Han bd ln. (This is not the end... it is the beginning. You must go with Frodo. That is your path.)
ARAGORN: (sighs and stands up, walks over to Arwen and puts his arm around her) Dolen i vd o nin. (My path is hidden from me.)
ARWEN: Si peliannen i vd na dail ln. Si boe -dhannathach. (It is already laid before your feet. You cannot falter now.)
ARAGORN: Arwen....
ARWEN: (puts her hand to his lips to silence him and moves it down to the Evenstar around his neck) Ae -esteliach nad... estelio han. Estelio ammen. (If you trust nothing else... trust this. Trust us.) (they kiss passionately)
The Evenstar is seen around Aragorn's neck, who is now walking with the Rohan people once more
EOWYN: (walking alongside him) Where is she? The woman who gave you that jewel.
Aragorn looks thoughtful.  He is seen talking to Elrond
ELROND: Our time here is ending. Arwen's time is ending. Let her go. Let her take the ship into the west. Let her bear away her love for you to the Undying Lands. There it will be ever green.
ARAGORN: But never more than memory.
ELROND: I will not leave my daughter here to die.
ARAGORN: She stays because she still has hope.
ELROND: She stays for you. She belongs with her people.
The next day Aragorn is preparing to leave Rivendell
ARWEN: Nach gwannatha sin? (Is this how you would take your leave?)
Aragorn turns to look at her, then continues to walk away.  She walks around and in front of him
ARWEN: Ma nathach hi gwannathach or minuial archened? (Did you think you could slip away at first light unnoticed?)
ARAGORN: -ethelithon. (I will not be coming back.) (he continues walking)
ARWEN: (following him) Estelio guru ln ne dagor. Ethelithach. (You underestimate your skill in battle. You will come back.)
ARAGORN: -bedin o gurth ne dagor. (It is not of death in battle that I speak.)
ARWEN: (placing a hand on his arm) O man pedich? (What do you speak of?)
ARAGORN: Edra le men, men na guil edwen. Haer o auth a nr a naeth. (You have a chance for another life. Away from war... grief... despair.)
ARWEN: Why are you saying this?
ARAGORN: I am mortal. You are Elf-kind. It was a dream, Arwen. Nothing more.
ARWEN: I don't believe you.
ARAGORN: (he takes her hand and opens his own showing her the Evenstar) This belongs to you.
ARWEN: (looking angered she closes his hand back round it) It was a gift. Keep it.
Back walking with Eowyn, Aragorn looks distant
EOWYN: My lord?
ARAGORN: She is sailing to the Undying Lands with all that is left of her kin.

Scene 34 ~ The Wolves of Isengard

The Two Towers Scene 34


As they continue to walk Hama and Gamling ride past them.  Legolas is standing on top of a hillock looking out.  He sees the two horsemen ride past, and is confused.  The horsemen suddenly pause
GAMLING: What is it? Hama?
HAMA: I'm not sure.
Above their heads on the cliff face, a Warg and its rider appear.  It runs down the cliff towards the two men, and throws Hama off his horse and attacks and kills him.  Aragorn and Eowyn hear something
Gamling fights the Warg rider.  Quickly Legolas runs down the hillside, and shoots the Warg dead with an arrow, and kills its rider with his knives.  Aragorn appears
LEGOLAS: A scout!
Aragorn hurries back down the hill to the people.  Theoden rides up to him
THEODEN: What is it? What do you see?
ARAGORN: (running to his horse) Warg! We're under attack!
The people of Rohan begin to panic
ARAGORN: Get them out of here!
THEODEN: All riders to the head of the column.
GIMLI: (trying to get on his horse) Come on. Get me up here. I'm a rider. Come on!
Legolas runs to the top of the hill and sees many Wargs running towards them. Theoden rides up to Eowyn
THEODEN: You must lead the people to Helm's Deep, and make haste.
EOWYN: I can fight.
THEODEN: No! You must do this, for me.
 Eowyn looks at him for a moment then turns away
THEODEN: (to his horsemen) Follow me!
Theoden rides off.  Aragorn mounts his horse and follows.  Meanwhile Gimli is trying to get his horse to move forwards
GIMLI: Forward. I mean, charge forward.
EOWYN: (to the people) Make for the lower ground!
GIMLI: (to his horse) That's it! Go on!
EOWYN: Stay together!
She looks back at the riders.  Aragorn pauses and turns his horse around to look at her, then rides off with the others.
Legolas meanwhile is firing arrows from a long distance at the Wargs.  He sees the horses coming up behind him.  Quickly he turns, and grabs the strapping round Arod, and swiftly swings himself up into the saddle.
The wargs and riders clash and a battle commences.  As Legolas rides through the wargs, firing arrows, Gimli slides from the horse.  He picks up his axe and sees a Warg feeding on a dead man

GIMLI: Bring your pretty face to my axe.
The warg runs towards Gimli.  Just as it pounces Legolas rides up beside it and kills it
GIMLI: That one counts as mine! (he turns to face another warg about to attack him.  He swings his axe at it and kills it.  It falls.... on top of him) Stinking creature.
The fighting continues. As Gimli tries to lift the warg off him, and orc appears from behind it. Gimli swiftly breaks his neck and the orc too falls on top of the warg on top of Gimli. He slowly lifts them both, and as he does a warg comes crawling over the top of the heap bearing his teeth.  Aragorn, spotting the warg, rides over, grabs a spear and throws it at the warg killing it.  This too falls on top of the heap.  Gimli groans.

Theoden and Aragorn continue to fight and kill the orcs and the wargs.  Suddenly a warg pounces on Aragorn, and pushes him off his horse. He jumps to his feet, just as an orc, riding a warg races past.  He grabs the saddlery of the warg and pulls himself up behind the orc.  They fight together as the warg continues to race along.  Aragorn looses his seating, but holds on to the warg, reaching up and stabbing the orc. The orc falls off the warg, but Aragorn finds his hand caught in the warg's strapping.  The warg is racing towards a cliff top, and shows no signs of slowing. He falls over the cliff taking Aragorn with him.

The battle is almost over.  Gimli kills a warg.  Theoden is looking around at the field of dead men and orcs.  Legolas is walking around looking for Aragorn.

LEGOLAS: Aragorn!
GIMLI: Aragorn?
Theoden scans the field.  Legolas walks towards the cliff top.  He pauses to examine something on the ground and hears an orc laughing.  The orc is dying
GIMLI: (raising his axe) Tell me what happened and I will ease your passing.
SHARKU: He's......dead. He took a little tumble off the cliff.
LEGOLAS: (kneeling down and grabbing Sharku) You lie.
Sharku dies.  Legolas looks down at Sharku's hands and find the Evenstar in them.  He looks worried, and runs to the edge of the cliff, where Theoden is already standing looking over the edge. They see a fast flowing river below and no sign of any bodies. Gimli joins them

Gamling walks up, and Theoden turns to him

THEODEN: Get the wounded on horses. The wolves of lsengard will return. Leave the dead.
Legolas looks at him disbelievingly.  Theoden places a hand on his shoulder
He walks away, leaving Legolas, grasping the Evenstar, and Gimli, staring into the river.

Scene 35 ~ Helms Deep

The Two Towers Scene 35

The people walk down a hill and see in front of them Helms Deep.
PEOPLE: At last! Helm's Deep There it is, Helm's Deep. We're safe!
LADY: (turning to Eowyn) We're safe, my lady. Thank you.
They walk into Helm's Deep.  There are many people and soldiers everywhere.  Eothain and Freda suddenly see their mother and run to her.
FREDA: Mama!
MORWEN: (arms outstretched) Eothain! Freda!
EOWYN: Where is the rest?
SOLDIER: This is all we could save, my lady.
EOWYN: Take it to the caves.
GAMLING: Make way for the king. Make way for Theoden. Make way for the king.
Theoden, Legolas, Gimli and the other Rohan soldiers ride into Helms Deep.  Eowyn runs to them, her eyes searching
EOWYN: (speaking to Theoden as he dismounts his horse) So few. So few of you have returned.
THEODEN: Our people are safe. We have paid for it with many lives.
GIMLI: (walking up to Eowyn) My lady.
EOWYN: Lord Aragorn......where is he?
GIMLI: He fell.
Eowyn looks at him shocked.  She turns to Theoden who is walking up the steps, with a tear in her eye.  He looks back at her, and walks away.  She stands stunned.

Theoden stands with Gamling and his guards overlooking the Deeping Wall

THEODEN: Draw all our forces behind the wall. Bar the gate. And set a watch on the surround.
GAMLING: What of those who cannot fight, my lord? The women and children?
THEODEN: Get them into the caves. (they walk down some steps to the bottom of the Deeping Wall, past a sewer gate at the bottom of it) Saruman's arm will have grown long indeed if he thinks he can reach us here.

Scene 36 ~ Isengard Unleashed

The Two Towers Scene 36

In Isengard Saruman is pouring some dark small stones into a bowl.  Grima walks up behind him holding a candle
GRIMA: Helm's Deep has one weakness. Its outer wall is solid rock......but for a small culvert at its base...... which is little more than a drain.
He walks closer to see what Saruman is doing
GRIMA: How? How can fire undo stone?
He walks forward, still holding the candle, and peers into the bowl.  Saruman grabs his hand and gestures for him to move away
GRIMA: What kind of device could bring down the wall?
SARUMAN: (walking out of the room) If the wall is breached, Helm's Deep will fall.
GRIMA: Even if it is breached, it would take a number beyond reckoning......thousands, to storm the Keep.
Grima follows Saruman to the balcony
SARUMAN: Tens of thousands.
GRIMA: But, my lord, there is no such force.
Walking onto the balcony, below are thousands of Uruk-hai armies waiting for Saruman.  A horn is sounded and the armies cheer.  Grima is stunned.  He stares in disbelief at what he can see. Saruman raises a hand
SARUMAN: (speaking to his armies) A new power is rising. Its victory is at hand.
The uruk-hai cheer
SARUMAN: This night......the land will be stained with the blood of Rohan! March to Helm's Deep! Leave none alive!
The camera moves down amongst the huge armies, thousands of uruk-hai with spears raised
SARUMAN: To war! (he raises both his hands)
Loud cheers from the uruk-hai.  Grima stares on in disbelief, a tear falls from his eye
SARUMAN: There will be no dawn for Men.
The uruk-hai move off carrying their banner bearing the white hand of Saruman

Meanwhile Treebeard walks to the top of a hill in Fangorn.  From there Isengard can be seen

PIPPIN: Look. There's smoke to the south.
TREEBEARD: There is always smoke rising......from lsengard these days.
MERRY: Isengard?
The hobbits climb higher in Treebeard's branches to see better
TREEBEARD: There was a time......when Saruman would walk in my woods. But now he has a mind of metal......and wheels. He no longer cares for growing things.
The hobbits see a black swarm leaving Isengard
PIPPIN: What is it?
MERRY: It's Saruman's army. The war has started.
