[Gandalf loses his grip and falls into

the chasm]



[Gandalf loses his grip and falls into

the chasm]


[Calls after Gandalf as he falls into

the abyss] Gaaandaaaaalf!!

[Gandalf falls after the Balrog and

grabs hold of his sword Glamdring on

his way down. As they continue to plunge

into the depths, Gandalf hacks away

at the Balrog even as it thrashes and

bounces off the walls. They continue

to plunge at great speed, sometimes

with Gandalf clinging to the horn of

the demon. The battling pair then falls

into an enormous cavern and plunges

into the water. Just then Frodo awakens

as if from a nightmare.]




What is it, Mr. Frodo?


Nothing. Just a dream. [Lies back down.]

[Frodo and Sam climbs over the rocky

terrain Emyn Muil. They look into the

distance at the Mountain of Fire.]


Mordor. The one place in Middle-earth

we don’t want to see any closer, and

the one place we’re trying to get to.

It’s just where we can’t get. Let’s

face it, Mr. Frodo, we’re lost. I don’t

think Gandalf meant for us to come this



He didn’t mean for a lot of things to

happen, Sam... but they did.

[Suddenly Frodo feels and sees the Eye

zooming in on him. He gasps and pants

as he backs away.]


Mr. Frodo? It’s the Ring, isn’t it?


It’s getting heavier. [Clutches the

Ring by his chest and sits down, still

panting. He then fumbles for his water

bottle and takes a sip.]


What food have we got left?
