They boat down the river, past two giant statues of ancient kings of men.
They rest on the bank but Legolas is worried— he senses darkness, which we know is the horde of Uruk-hai tracking them.
Frodo wanders off, seeking solitude, but is followed by Boromir.
Boromir first tries to convince Frodo to take the Ring to Gondor to use against the enemy but Frodo will have none of it.
Then Boromir becomes possessed with his desire for the ring, and he tries to take it from Frodo… who puts on the Ring in self-defense.
Boromir comes out of his state, and he is almost in tears over what he's almost done.
Frodo, in the realm of the Ring, is taken once again to the Eye of Sauron until he frantically pulls it off.
Aragorn has found him and Frodo tells him about Boromir. But when Aragorn asks where the Ring is Frodo grows defensive.
He asks if Aragorn could destroy it and Aragorn reaches for the Ring but closes Frodo's hand around it, saying he would have gone to the end with him.
Frodo tells Aragorn to look after everyone, especially Sam.
But just then Sting begins glowing blue. The Uruk-hai have arrived and Frodo runs as Aragorn turns to face them and buy him time.
Gimli and Legolas join Aragorn as Merry and Pippin, realizing Frodo's intention to leave, distract the orcs.
When their distracting catches up to them, Boromir comes to their rescue. But after fending off so many orcs he takes an arrow to the chest from the Uruk-hai leader, whose official name is Lurtz. Then another… and then another.
The Uruk-hai leader poses to make a killing blow but Aragorn tackles him like a star linebacker, squaring off with the mightiest Uruk.
They fight and eventually Aragorn makes the Uruk leader a full head shorter.
Boromir dies in Aragorn's arms but not before apologizing for trying to take the ring and telling Aragorn he would have followed him as the king of Gondor.
Mary and Pippin are captured by the orcs, who start heading back to Saruman with their prize.
