Scene 37 ~ The Grace of the Valar

The Two Towers Scene 37

Aragorn is floating down the river unconcscious.  He drifts into a bank.  He sees a vision of Arwen lying on a couch.  Through the swirling light she appears over him, bending down to kiss him

ARWEN: May the grace of the Valar protect you.
he opens his eyes to look at her as the vision fades.  He falls unconscious again.  A horse arrives and nudges his head.  He nibbles Aragorn's nose, then kneels down beside him. 
Aragorn grasps his mane and pulls himself onto Brego.  Brego carries him away

Scene 38 ~ Arwen's Fate

The Two Towers Scene 38

Arwen is still lying on the couch deep in thought
ELROND: (coming into her room) Arwen. (she sits up) Tollen i l. I chair gwannar na Valannor. Si bado, no crar. (It is time. The ships are leaving for Valinor. Go now... before it is too late.)
ARWEN: I have made my choice.
ELROND: (standing in front of her) He is not coming back. Why do you linger here when there is no hope?
ARWEN: There is still hope.
ELROND: (walks across the room) If Aragorn survives this war, you will still be parted. If Sauron is defeated and Aragorn made king......and all that you hope for comes true......you will still have to taste the bitterness of mortality.
A vision of Arwen dressed in mourning robes appears. She is standing beside Aragorn, who lies grey and dead wearing his crown and grasping his sword on top of his tomb.  Mourners walk behind her. 
ELROND VOICEOVER: Whether by the sword or the slow decay of time......Aragorn will die. And there will be no comfort for you......no comfort to ease the pain of his passing. He will come to death......an image of the splendor of the kings of Men......in glory undimmed before the breaking of the world.


The vision changes so that Aragorn is now a stone statue on top of the tomb.  Arwen is standing at the end of it, alone and grieving. As morning light comes, she wanders alone through the woods
ELROND VOICEOVER: But you, my daughter......you will linger on in darkness and in doubt......as nightfall in winter that comes without a star. Here you will dwell......bound to your grief under the fading trees...... until all the world is changed......and the long years of your life are utterly spent.
ELROND: (turning to Arwen) Arwen. (she gasps, she is crying) There is nothing for you here......only death.
Elrond sits next to her and touches her cheek
ELROND: A im, -'erin veleth ln? (Do I not also have your love?)
ARWEN: (dropping her head to his chest as he puts his arms around her)  Gerich veleth nn, ada. (You have my love, father)
Cloaked and hooded elves are leaving Rivendell carrying lanterns.  Elrond stands watching them leave.  Arwen, amongst them, turns to look back up at him. He looks back at her with concern.  The elves leave crossing the bridge.

Scene 39 ~ The Story Foreseen from Lrien

The Two Towers Scene 39

Elrond continues to stare out of the window a frown on his face.  A vision of Galadriel appears to him
GALADRIEL: I amar prestar aen... han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae a han noston ned 'wilith. (The world has changed... I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth, I smell it in the air.)

The power of the enemy is growing. (Saruman holds his hand over the Palantir communicating with Sauron) Sauron will use his puppet, Saruman...... to destroy the people of Rohan. Isengard has been unleashed. (the Uruk-hai are seen marching towards Helms Deep and the Eye of Sauron looks on)

The Eye of Sauron now turns to Gondor...... the last free kingdom of Men. (a picture of a devastated Osgiliath is seen as a dark cloud passes over it and Sauron's eye again looks out) His war on this country will come swiftly. He senses the Ring is close.

(Sam and Frodo are being marched blindfolded by Faramir's army) The strength of the Ring-bearer is failing. In his heart, Frodo begins to understand...(Elrond sighs deeply, Galadriel continues to speak to him) ...the quest will claim his life. You know this. You have foreseen it. It is the risk we all took.

In the gathering dark, the will of the Ring grows strong. (the Ring spins in the air) It works hard now to find its way back into the hands of Men. Men, who are so easily seduced by its power. (Sam and Frodo are still blindfolded and being marched and pushed by Faramir's men) The young captain of Gondor has but to extend his hand...... take the Ring for his own, and the world will fall. It is close now. So close to achieving its goal. (Sam and Frodo are lifted into Henneth Annn, into the cave behind the waterfall) For Sauron will have dominion over all life on this Earth...... even unto to the ending of the world.

The time of the Elves... (Galadriel appears close up, with bright blue eyes) ...is over. (Elrond walks from the window to the painting of Isildur cutting the Ring from Sauron's hand and breaking the blade of Elendil) Do we leave Middle-earth to its fate? Do we let them stand alone?


Scene 40 ~ The Window on the West

The Two Towers Scene 40

In Henneth Annn Faramir opens up a map and speaks to his men
FARAMIR: What news?
MADRIL: Our scouts report Saruman has attacked Rohan. (he points to the map and shows him the route) Theoden's people have fled to Helm's Deep. But we must look to our own borders. Faramir, Orcs are on the move. Sauron is marshaling an army. Easterlings and Southrons are at the Black Gate.
FARAMIR: How many?
MADRIL: Some thousands. More come every day.
FARAMIR: Who's covering the river to the north?
MADRIL: We pulled 500 men at Osgiliath. If their city is attacked, we won't hold it.
FARAMIR: (pointing to the map and tracing the route) Saruman attacks from lsengard. Sauron from Mordor. The fight will come to Men on both fronts. Gondor is weak. Sauron will strike us soon. And he will strike hard. He knows now we do not have the strength to repel him.
Frodo and Sam's blindfolds are removed.  They are standing in the cave with men busy around them.  Faramir walks up to them
FARAMIR: My men tell me that you are Orc spies.
SAM: Spies? Now wait just a minute.
FARAMIR: Well, if you're not spies, then who are you?
Sam looks at Frodo.  They say nothing
FARAMIR: (sitting down) Speak.
FRODO: We are Hobbits of the Shire. Frodo Baggins is my name, and this is Samwise Gamgee.
FARAMIR: Your bodyguard?
SAM: His gardener.
FARAMIR: And where is your skulking friend? That gangrel creature. He had an ill-favored look.
FRODO: (pausing) There was no other. (Sam looks nervous.  Faramir looks suspicious) We set out from Rivendell with seven companions. One we lost in Moria......two were my kin......a Dwarf there was also. And an Elf and two Men. Aragorn, son of Arathorn, and Boromir of Gondor.
FARAMIR: (he swallows) You're a friend of Boromir?
FRODO: Yes.  For my part.
FARAMIR: (standing up) It will grieve you then to learn that he is dead.
FRODO: (looking sad) Dead? How? When?
FARAMIR: As one of his companions, I'd hoped you would tell me.
FRODO: If something has happened to Boromir, we would have you tell us.
FARAMIR: His horn washed up upon the riverbank, about six days past. It was cloven in two. But more than this, I know it in my heart. (pauses) He was my brother.
Faramir sees a memory of himself standing by a river bank as the body of Boromir floats past in the elvish boat.  He looks shocked and grieved.
